This book explores the limitless ability to design new materials by layering clay materials within organic compounds. Assembly, properties, characterization, and current and potential applications are offered to inspire the development of novel materials.
Determining the structure of molecules is a fundamental skill that all chemists must learn. Structural Methods in Molecular Inorganic Chemistry is designed to help readers interpret experimental data, understand the material published in modern journals of inorganic chemistry, and make decisions about what techniques will be the most useful in solving particular structural problems.
Physical Inorganic Chemistry contains the fundamentals of physical inorganic chemistry, including information on reaction types, and treatments of reaction mechanisms. Additionally, the text explores complex reactions and processes in terms of energy, environment, and health. This valuable resource closely examines mechanisms, an under-discussed topic.
Organic Chemistry is not merely a compilation of principles, but rather, it is a disciplined method of thought and analysis. Success in organic chemistry requires mastery in two core aspects: fundamental concepts and the skills needed to apply those concepts and solve problems. Readers must learn to become proficient at approaching new situations methodically, based on a repertoire of skills. These skills are vital for successful problem solving in organic chemistry.
The Nuts and Bolts of Organic Chemistry helps students prepare for Organic Chemistry. This text is designed for students to use early in the course before they dive too far into a traditional textbook or as a reference text when studying for the MCAT. It prepares students to think about and use the fundamental concepts of organic chemistry. The text helps convince students that rote memorization is not the right way to approach the course; instead, they should master fundamental concepts and important reaction mechanisms.
