Chemistry in Context 8th International Edition
Following in the tradition of the first seven editions, the goal of this successful, issues-based textbook, Chemistry in Context, is to establish chemical principles on a need-to-know basis for non-science majors, enabling them to learn chemistry in the context of their own lives and significant issues facing science and the world. The non-traditional approach of Chemistry in Context reflects today’s technological issues and the chemistry principles within them. Global warming, alternate fuels, nutrition, and genetic engineering are examples of issues that are covered in Chemistry in Context.
Laboratory Manual for General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry can accompany the lab portion of any one-semester GOB chemistry course. Most experiments include a link to the health sciences, such as nursing and nutrition, while concepts are framed in real-world questions and are broadly applicable. Many of the experiments illustrate concepts from more than one chapter of the text and often utilize basics from the areas of general, organic, or biological chemistry to develop concepts in one or more of the other areas. This integrated strategy helps students to understand that chemistry is not a disparate set of unrelated concepts. Using this integrated approach, students develop the skills to help them understand chemistry and to see its applications in their everyday lives.
About the Author
Todd S. Deal received his B.S. degree in chemistry in 1986 from Georgia Southern College (now University) in Statesboro, Georgia, and his Ph.D. in chemistry in 1990 from The Ohio State University. He joined the faculty of his undergraduate alma mater in 1992, where he currently serves as Director of the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement. Professor Deal has taught chemistry to allied health and preprofessional students for 20 years. In 1994, he was selected Professor of the Year by the students at Georgia Southern University. Professor Deal is also the recipient of the Allen E. Paulson College of Science and Technology’s Award for Excellence in Teaching (2003), the Georgia Southern University Award for Excellence in Contributions to Instruction (2003), and the Allen E. Paulson College of Science and Technology’s Award for Excellence in Service (2006).
Discover a new generation of organic nanomaterials and their applications
Recent developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology have given rise to a new generation of functional organic nanomaterials with controlled morphology and well-defined properties, which enable a broad range of useful applications. This book explores some of the most important of these organic nanomaterials, describing how they are synthesized and characterized. Moreover, the book explains how researchers have incorporated organic nanomaterials into devices for real-world applications.
Featuring contributions from an international team of leading nanoscientists, Organic Nanomaterials is divided into five parts:
- Part One introduces the fundamentals of nanomaterials and self-assembled nanostructures
- Part Two examines carbon nanostructures—from fullerenes to carbon nanotubes to graphene—reporting on properties, theoretical studies, and applications
- Part Three investigates key aspects of some inorganic materials, self-assembled monolayers, organic field effect transistors, and molecular self-assembly at solid surfaces
- Part Four explores topics that involve both biological aspects and nanomaterials such as biofunctionalized surfaces
- Part Five offers detailed examples of how organic nanomaterials enhance sensors and molecular photovoltaics
Most of the chapters end with a summary highlighting the key points. References at the end of each chapter guide readers to the growing body of original research reports and reviews in the field.
Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of organic nanomaterials, this book is recommended for researchers in chemistry, physics, materials science, polymer science, and chemical and materials engineering. All readers will learn the principles of synthesizing and characterizing new organic nanomaterials in order to support a broad range of exciting new applications.

About the Author
Pedro J. P rez (1965) graduated in Chemistry in 1987 in Sevilla. He received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry (1991) at the Universidad de Sevilla, under the direction of Prof. Ernesto Carmona. As a Fulbright Scholar, he then joined Prof. Brookhart’s group at UNC-Chapel Hill (USA) where he started the research related to the use of copper-based catalysts for diazo decomposition. In 1994 he was invited research at DuPont Exptal station (Wilmington, Delaware). In 1993 he moved to a new University founded in Huelva, as an Assistant Professor (1993-1995), later becoming Lecturer (1995) and finally Professor of Inorganic Chemistry (2005). The general research interest of his group is related to the development of late transition-metal complexes for their use as catalysts in transformations with hydrocarbons. He is also responsible of the Homogeneous Catalysis Laboratory, an Associate Unit to the Spanish National Council of Research (CSIC), that is part of the Center for Research in Sustainable Chemistry at the Universidad de Huelva. He received the Inorganic Chemistry Award of the Royal Society of Chemistry of Spain (RSEQ) in 2007. From 2010 he is President of the Organometallic Division of the RSEQ and since 2011 he is also Secretary General of RSEQ. Currently he is also member of the Advisory Boards of Organometallics and European Journal of Inorganic Chemsitry.
This book, the fourth in a series of Understanding Chemistry books, deals with Basic Chemistry.
Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge O-level examinations or the GCSE examinations, this textbook covers essential topics under both stipulated chemistry syllabi. The book is written in such a way as to guide the reader through the understanding and applications of basic essential chemical concepts by introducing a discourse feature — the asking and answering of questions — that stimulates coherent thinking and hence, elucidates ideas. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader’s development in forming logical conclusions of concepts. The book helps students to master fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way.
Readership: O level students and teaching professionals in Chemistry.
