Description : This book has been successfully guiding undergraduate students of science, engineering and pharmacy of the Indian universities since 1978 due to its approach of teaching the subject in the simplest possible way.The book emphasizes on fundamental rather than excessive details and develops the topics from the first principles. It contains a considerable number of worked-out examples exposing the students to practical applications of equations and helping them comprehend the magnitude of many different physiochemical quantities. Both the traditional cgs/esu and the newer SI systems of units have been used identically. This is so because in spite of wider acceptance of the SI units, the cgs units continue to be used in most chemical literature.New in this Edition• Quick Recap' section with every chapter to bring the concepts on fingertips• Vastly augmented section on MCQs for complete comprehension• Additional review questions to make them broad based• Revised and updated topics
Description : This book provides an in-depth information on the principles and practices of modern organic chemistry. The traditional functional group organization is retained, and cross-reference of important reactions with the text, as well as solved examples, reinfo
Description : Supported by numerous illustrations and references, this book describes the chemistry and physics that occur during the refinery operations, and how the properties of petroleum can be translated into predictability in refinery scenarios. The chapters discuss such topics as: the composition of petroleum, petroleum analysis and evaluation; metals and heteroatoms in petroleum; asphaltenes and the structure of petroleum, thermal chemistry of petroleum constituents; heavy oil upgrading processes; hydrocracking reactions, catalysts, and processes; and instability and incompatibility of petroleum products.
Description : Written primarily to meet the requirements of students at the undergraduate level, this book aims for a self-learning approach. The fundamentals of physical chemistry have been explained with illustrations, diagrams, tables, experimental techniques and solved problems.
