Engineering Chemistry has been divided into 10 chapters, covering all the disciplines of engineering chemistry such as inorganic, organic, organometallic, synthetic, physical, applied, industrial, spectroscopic and titrimetric chemistry. Each chapter consist of methodical introduction, historical background, in depth discussion, practical applications and significance. A large number of numerical problems drawn from various university examinations are given at the end of theoretical part of each chapter.

The book aims at:

  • Developing the techniques to enhance the practicability of experiments.
  • Developing analytical capabilities of students so that they can characterize transform and use materials and apply information in solving related engineering problems.
  • Developing the habit of scientific reasoning in the students.
  • Imparting intensive and extensive information on the subject to understand the role of chemistry in the field of engineering.
This book will prove as a useful tool for students of undergraduate engineering classes and also for teachers in preparing for their lectures.

Salient Features
