Quick Overview

This completely updated text/reference is designed to present the fundamental principles of chemistry with strong emphasis on experiments, applications, and topics in engineering areas, and the myriad problems created by chemical processes. The three-part structure of the book covers the more advanced topics in applied chemistry including thermodynamics, polymers, fuel combustion, water treatment, and environmental pollution. The book can be used by practicing engineers, chemists, and scientists--or as a text in standard university courses in engineering chemistry, chemical engineering, and chemistry for engineers. Numerous experiments and applications of modern chemical theory, illustrations, in-text examples, and exercise have been included.


    • Provides extensive discussions of thermodynamics, electrochemistry, polymers, corrosion, fuel combustion, water treatment and environmental pollution-with emphasis on topics of interest in engineering

    • Includes a Chemistry Laboratory section demonstrating 15 in-depth experiments with discussion questions

    • Designed as a text/reference, the book provides practicing engineers, scientists, and students with the up-to-date concepts of applied chemistry

    • Numerous applications of modern chemical theory, illustrations, in-text examples with solutions, and exercises have been included to assist with self-study
