  • Organometallics and catalysis : an introduction / Manfred Bochmann, University of East Anglia
    QD 411 B63 2015
    Organometallic chemistry explores the chemistry of the often bewildering variety of compounds featuring metal-carbon bonds. A field that has underpinned the development of new synthetic methods and materials, it is also central to our understanding of catalysis. In his text, Manfred Bochmann distils the extensive knowledge of the field into a succinct overview of essential concepts. The book is enriched throughout with examples that demonstrate how our understanding of organometallic chemistry has led to new applications in research and industry - not leastin relation to catalysis - and an extensive reaction schemes and structures give added clarity to the concepts being explained. Striking just the right balance between breadth and depth - and with features throughout to support the learning process - Organometallics and Catalysis is the perfect introduction for undergraduate and graduate students who need a thorough grounding on the subject or are embarking on new researchareas. Online Resource Centre: The Online Resource Centre to accompany Organometallics and Catalysis: An Introduction features: For registered adopters of the text:* Figures from the book in electronic format For everyone:* Curated links to relevant video materials on YouTube

  • The worst of times : how life on earth survived eighty million years of extinctions / Paul B. Wignall
    QE 721.2 E97W54 2015
    Two hundred and sixty million years ago, life on Earth suffered wave after wave of cataclysmic extinctions, with the worst--the end-Permian extinction--wiping out nearly every species on the planet. The Worst of Times delves into the mystery behind these extinctions and sheds light on the fateful role the primeval supercontinent, known as Pangea, may have played in causing these global catastrophes. Drawing on the latest discoveries as well as his own firsthand experiences conducting field expeditions to remote corners of the world, Paul Wignall reveals what scientists are only now beginning to understand about the most prolonged and calamitous period of environmental crisis in Earth's history. He describes how a series of unprecedented extinction events swept across the planet in a span of eighty million years, rapidly killing marine and terrestrial life on a scale more devastating than the dinosaur extinctions that would come later. Wignall shows how these extinctions--some of which have only recently been discovered--all coincided with gigantic volcanic eruptions of basalt lavas that occurred when the world's landmasses were united into a single vast expanse. Unraveling one of the great enigmas of ancient Earth, The Worst of Times also explains how the splitting apart of Pangea into the continents we know today ushered in a new age of vibrant and more resilient life on our planet.

  • Student solutions manual to accompany Physical chemistry : thermodynamics, structure, and change / Charles Trapp, Marshall Cady, Carmen Giunta
    QD 453.3 A74 2014 Manual

  • Understanding experimental planning for advanced level chemistry : the learner's approach / Kim Seng Chan, Jeanne Tan
    QD 45 C35 2015
    This book is a continuation of authors' previous six books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Chemistry Through Problem Solving Vol. I & II, Understanding Basic Chemistry and Understanding Basic Chemistry Through Problem Solving, retaining the main refutational characteristics of the previous books with the strategic inclusion of think-aloud questions to promote conceptual understanding during an experimental planning. These essential questions would make learners aware of the rationale behind each procedural step, the amount of chemical used and types of apparatus that are appropriate for the experiment.The book provides a fundamental important scaffolding to aid students to create their own understanding of how to plan an experiment based on the given reagent and apparatus. It guides the students in integrating the various concepts that they have learnt into a coherent and meaningful conceptual network during experimental planning.Existing A-level or IB guidebooks generally introduce concepts in a matter-of-fact manner. This book adds a unique pedagogical edge which few can rival. This book is essential and useful in order for students to be adequately prepared for their high stake examinations.

  • Rotating electrode methods and oxygen reduction electrocatalysts / edited by Wei Xing, Geping Yin and Jiujun Zhang
    QD 569 R68 2014
    This book provides the latest information and methodologies of rotating disk electrode and rotating ring-disk electrode (RDE/RRDE) and oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). It is an ideal reference for undergraduate and graduate students, scientists, and engineers who work in the areas of energy, electrochemistry science and technology, fuel cells, and other electrochemical systems. Presents a comprehensive description, from fundamentals to applications, of catalyzed oxygen reduction reaction and its mechanisms Portrays a complete description of the RDE (Rotating Disc Electrode)/RRDE (Rotating Ring-Disc Electrode) techniques and their use in evaluating ORR (Oxygen Reduction Reaction) catalysts Provides working examples along with figures, tables, photos and a comprehensive list of references to help understanding of the principles involved
