- Interpreting Organic Spectra by David Whittaker Spectroscopic data undoubtedly provides a great deal of useful information about organic molecules. Competently deriving structural information from such data therefore, is a requisite skill for many undergraduates studying chemistry. Interpreting Organic Spectra covers the basic principles of spectroscopy in as non-mathematical a way as possible. It assumes no previous knowledge of spectroscopy and avoids excessive theory, approaching the topic as an exercise in pattern recognition. Hence the main focus of the book is in the provision of a variety of spectra for the student to interpret. Students are able to pace their progress by gaining confidence on the simpler spectra, and applying techniques learned to tackle more complex examples. As an introduction to the subject, it is ideal for A-level students as well as chemistry undergraduates and will prove to be a very useful reference tool for teachers and lecturers.Call Number: Available as an ebookISBN: 9781847551153Publication Date: 2007-10-31

- Experiments in Physical Chemistry by David Shoemaker; Joseph Nibler; Carl GarlandCall Number: QD457 .S46ISBN: 9780070570078Publication Date: 1989-01-01
- Mathematical physical chemistry : practical and intuitive methodology by Shu Hotta This book introduces basic concepts of mathematical physics to chemists. Many textbooks and monographs of mathematical physics may appear daunting to them. Unlike other, related books, however, this one contains a practical selection of material, particularly for graduate and undergraduate students majoring in chemistry. The book first describes quantum mechanics and electromagnetism, with the relation between the two being emphasized. Although quantum mechanics covers a broad field in modern physics, the author focuses on a hydrogen(like) atom and a harmonic oscillator with regard to the operator method. This approach helps chemists understand the basic concepts of quantum mechanics aided by their intuitive understanding without abstract argument, as chemists tend to think of natural phenomena and other factors intuitively rather than only logically. The study of light propagation, reflection, and transmission in dielectric media is of fundamental importance. This book explains these processes on the basis of Maxwell equations. The latter half of the volume deals with mathematical physics in terms of vectors and their transformation in a vector space. Finally, as an example of chemical applications, quantum chemical treatment of methane is introduced, including a basic but essential explanation of Green functions and group theory. Methodology developed by the author will also prove to be useful to physicists.Call Number: Available as an ebookISBN: 9789811076718Publication Date: 2018

- Physical Chemistry: How Chemistry Works by Kurt W. Kolasinski Much of chemistry is motivated by asking 'How'? How do I make a primary alcohol? React a Grignard reagent with formaldehyde. Physical chemistry is motivated by asking 'Why'? The Grignard reagent and formaldehyde follow a molecular dance known as a reaction mechanism in which stronger bonds are made at the expense of weaker bonds. If you are interested in asking 'why' and not just 'how', then you need to understand physical chemistry. Physical Chemistry: How Chemistry Works takes a fresh approach to teaching in physical chemistry. This modern textbook is designed to excite and engage undergraduate chemistry students and prepare them for how they will employ physical chemistry in real life. The student-friendly approach and practical, contemporary examples facilitate an understanding of the physical chemical aspects of any system, allowing students of inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry and biochemistry to be fluent in the essentials of physical chemistry in order to understand synthesis, intermolecular interactions and materials properties. For students who are deeply interested in the subject of physical chemistry, the textbook facilitates further study by connecting them to the frontiers of research. Provides students with the physical and mathematical machinery to understand the physical chemical aspects of any system. Integrates regular examples drawn from the literature, from contemporary issues and research, to engage students with relevant and illustrative details. Important topics are introduced and returned to in later chapters: key concepts are reinforced and discussed in more depth as students acquire more tools. Chapters begin with a preview of important concepts and conclude with a summary of important equations. Each chapter includes worked examples and exercises: discussion questions, simple equation manipulation questions, and problem-solving exercises. Accompanied by supplementary online material: worked examples for students and a solutions manual for instructors. Written by an experienced instructor, researcher and author in physical chemistry, with a voice and perspective that is pedagogical and engaging.Call Number: Available as an ebookISBN: 9781118751213Publication Date: 2016-09-07
