This text provides a basis for the teaching, learning and application of analytical chemistry. It covers rapidly developing areas with sections on calibration methods and the analysis of variance. Experimental design, optimization techniques and examples of multivariate analysis are also included.
Inspiring and motivating students from the moment it published, Organic Chemistry has established itself in just one edition as the students' choice of organic chemistry text. Its explanatory, mechanistic, evidence-based approach makes it perfect for fostering a true understanding of the subject.
Iron is indispensable for the growth, development and well-being of almost all living organisms. Biological systems from bacteria, fungi and plants to humans have evolved systems for the uptake, utilisation, storage and homeostasis of iron.
These popular molecular modelling sets can help students to visualise concepts such as isomerism through hands-on learning. The models can also be used to learn about balancing equations and molecular geometry.
