About the Authors
  • Gain a detailed understanding of the fundamental concepts of chemistry and their engineering applications with this fully revised second edition. Catering to the needs of first and second semester undergraduate students from all branches of engineering taking courses on engineering chemistry, it offers new material on topics such as periodic properties, structure and bonding, gaseous states, ionic equilibrium, oxidation and reduction, Werner's coordination theory, Sidgwick coordination theory, valence bond theory, crystal field theory, bonding in coordination compounds, and isomerism in coordination compounds. Lucid language and an easy-to-learn approach help students to understand the basic concepts, use them to construct engineering materials, and solve problems associated with them. Each chapter is further strengthened by numerous examples and review questions.

    • Provides comprehensive coverage of both the fundamental concepts and applications of engineering chemistry
    • Discusses topics such as periodic properties, gaseous state, oxidation and reduction
    • Presents rich pedagogical features including examples and review questions at the end of each chapter
