Indole derivatives are the most common heterocycle compounds present in nature, for this reason, they have been referred to as 'privileged structures'. In fact, many approved drugs - and natural products - belong to this family. Among indole derivatives, oxindoles have a structural complexity, which have stimulated generations of synthetic chemists to design strategies for assembling these structures, and their enantioselective synthesis is still growing.This book proposes to describe the known
Atkins' Physical Chemistry is widely acknowledged by both students and lecturers around the globe to be the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry. Now in its eleventh edition, the text has been enhanced with additional learning features and maths support, re-organised into discrete Topics, to make the text more flexible to teach from and more readable for students.
The ever-popular Chemistry in Context textbook has been revised to cover the latest Cambridge syllabus (9701). This stretching resource supports advanced chemistry skills regardless of syllabus and builds long-term performance, increasing students' confidence in their exams, and builds foundations for future university education.
Chemistry(3) establishes the fundamental principles of all three strands of chemistry; organic, inorganic and physical. By building on what students have learned at school, using carefully-worded explanations, annotated diagrams and worked examples, it presents an approachable introduction to chemistry and its relevance to everyday life.
This comprehensive book approaches sustainability from two directions, the reduction of pollution and the maintaining of existing resources, both of which are addressed in a thorough examination of the main chemical processes and their impact.
Aims to introduce to advanced undergraduate students and graduate students the fundamental ideas and notions of the first and second laws of thermodynamics. This title also provides them with functional and practical knowledge of equilibrium chemical thermodynamics of reversible processes in real fluids.
Offers a comprehensive treatment of combinatorial development of heterogeneous catalysts. The book describes evolutionary optimization in a broader context of methods of searching for optimal catalytic materials, including statistical design of experiments, as well as presents neural networks in a broader context of data analysis.
