Organic Chemistry 10th Revised Edition
For ten editions, Organic Chemistry has been designed to meet the needs of the “mainstream,” two-semester, undergraduate organic chemistry course. This best-selling text gives students a solid understanding of organic chemistry by stressing how fundamental reaction mechanisms function and reactions occur.
About the Author
Francis A. Carey es un nativo de Pennsylvania, educado en las escuelas publicas de Filadelfia, en la Universidad de Drexel (BS en Quimica, 1959), y la Universidad Estatal de Pensilvania (Ph.D. 1963). Tras el trabajo postdoctoral en la Universidad de Harvard y el servicio militar, fue nombrado a la facultad de quimica de la Universidad de Virginia en 1966 Antes de retirarse en 2000, enseno regularmente los cursos de conferencias de dos semestres en la quimica general y quimica organica. Con sus alumnos, el profesor Carey ha publicado mas de cuarenta articulos de investigacion en quimica organica sintetica y mecanicista. Ademas de este texto, que es coautor (con Robert C. Atkins) de Quimica Organica: Un Curso Breve y (con Richard J. Sundberg) de Advanced Organic Chemistry, un tratamiento de dos volumenes disenado para estudiantes graduados y estudiantes universitarios avanzados. Fue miembro del Comite de Examinadores de El Graduate Record Examination en Quimica 1993-2000. Frank y su esposa Jill, que es maestra / directora de un jardin de infantes y un organista de la iglesia, son los padres de Andy, Bob y Bill y los abuelos de Riyad y Ava. Robert M. Giuliano

This supplement can be used in any analytical chemistry course. The exercises teach students how to use Microsoft Excel using applications from statistics, data analysis equilibrium calculations, curve fitting, and more. Operations include everything from basic arithmetic and cell formatting to Solver, Goal Seek, and the Data Analysis Toolpak. The authors show students how to use a spreadsheet to construct log diagrams and to plot the results. Statistical data treatment includes descriptive statistics, linear regression, hypothesis testing, and analysis of variance. Tutorial exercises include nonlinear regression such as fitting the Van Deemter equation, fitting kinetics data, determining error coefficients in spectrophotometry, and calculating titration curves. Additional features include solving complex systems of equilibrium equations and advanced graphical methods: error bars, charts with insets, matrices and determinants, and much more.

Now in its fourth edition, Housecroft & Sharpe’s Inorganic Chemistry is a well-respected and leading international textbook. Inorganic Chemistry is primarily designed to be a student text but is well-received as a reference book for those working in the field of inorganic chemistry.
Inorganic Chemistry provides both teachers and students with a clearly written and beautifully-illustrated introduction to core physical-inorganic principles. It introduces the descriptive chemistry of the elements and the role played by inorganic chemistry in our everyday lives. Chapters on catalysis and industrial processes, bioinorganic chemistry, and inorganic materials and nanotechnology include many of the latest advances in these fields. There is a new chapter on experimental techniques, and the large number of worked examples, exercises and end-of-chapter problems illustrate a broad range of their applications in inorganic chemistry. The striking full-colour design includes a wealth of three-dimensional molecular and protein structures and photographs, enticing students to delve into the world of inorganic chemistry.
Throughout its four editions, Inorganic Chemistry has successfully given both teachers and students the tools with which to approach the subject confidently and with enjoyment. Environmental issues linked to inorganic chemistry, topics relating inorganic chemistry to biology and medicine, and the applications of inorganic chemicals in the laboratory, industry and daily life form the basis of a wide range of topic boxes in the book, helping students to appreciate the importance and relevance of the subject.
A strong pedagogic approach is at the heart of Inorganic Chemistry . While worked examples take students through calculations and exercises step by step, the sets of self-study exercises and end-of-chapter problems reinforce learning and develop subject knowledge and skills. The end-of-chapter problems include sets of ‘overview problems’, and problems entitled ‘inorganic chemistry matters’ which use everyday material to illustrate the relevance of the material in each chapter. Definitions panels and end-of-chapter checklists offer students excellent revision aids. Further reading suggestions, from topical articles to recent literature papers, encourage students to explore topics in more depth.
International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology presents comprehensive reviews and current advances in cell and molecular biology. Articles address structure and control of gene expression, nucleocytoplasmic interactions, control of cell development and differentiation, and cell transformation and growth. The series has a world-wide readership, maintaining a high standard by publishing invited articles on important and timely topics authored by prominent cell and molecular biologists. * Authored by some of the foremost scientists in the field * Provides comprehensive reviews and current advances* Wide range of perspectives on specific subjects* Valuable reference material for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and professional scientists
About the Author
Kwang Jeon received his Ph.D. in cell physiology at King’s College, University of London, UK, in 1964 and taught at SUNY Buffalo and University of Tennessee. His research was concerned with the biogenesis and function of cell components in two major areas: Integration of intracellular symbionts into host cells leading to the acquisition of new cell components and cell variation; Membrane-protein recycling during endo- and exocytosis.
Transportation systems and vehicles play an important role in modern life. They would not be possible without fuel. This handbook gives a comprehensive overview of various types of fuels used to power vehicles of all kinds and the processes to produce these fuels. The main focus is on automotive fuels, however, aviation and marine fuels are described as well as alternative and novel fuels, such as ethanol, methanol, natural gas and others.
The book is not only valuable for students and graduated scientists from various industries like oil and automobile companies, but also for journalists interested in this field.
About the Author
Barbara Elvers studied chemistry at the University of Hamburg from 1970 to 1979 where she received her PhD in carbohydrate chemistry. After working in a research project in biochemistry at the university hospital in Hamburg she moved to the United States of America in 1980 where she was employed as a visiting scientist at SRI, Palo Alto, in the life science department. She started working for VCH in 1985, first as a freelance translator of textbooks in chemistry, and from 1987 onwards as an editor of Ullmann’s Encyclopedia. One of the main subjects of her editorial work was the acquisition of authors and articles in the field of energy generation and fuels. Dr. Elvers has been living in Hamburg since 1996, working as an editor for Ullmann’s and other reference works and for the Wiley-VCH journal Starch/Stärke.
