About the Authors
  • Engineering Chemistry discusses the fundamental theoretical concepts of chemistry and links them with their engineering applications. The book is designed as an introductory course for undergraduate students in all branches of engineering. Employing an easy-to-understand approach, it elaborates on the fundamental concepts and their applications, and includes scores of illustrations and learning exercises to facilitate comprehension. Starting with areas of common interest, such as fuels, water, corrosion and phase rule, followed by chapters on engineering materials, polymers and lubricants, the book then covers a range of important subjects, such as structure and bonding, solid state, liquid crystal, chemical kinetics, surface chemistry, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, spectroscopy, photochemistry, the basics of organic chemistry and organometallic compounds. It also covers the applications of several important topics in detail, including nanomaterials, green chemistry, NMR spectroscopy and biotechnology.

    • Each theoretical concept is followed by solved problems and unsolved exercises to help students grasp concepts more easily
    • A chapter on electrochemistry discusses types of cells in detail
    • Applications of nanomaterials, surface chemistry, biotechnology and thermodynamics are discussed comprehensively in different chapters
    • Extensive pedagogical features such as multiple choice questions are included in each chapter
