This book is primarily intended for the first year B.Tech students of all branches for their course on engineering chemistry. The main objective of this book is to provide a broad understanding of the chemical concepts, theories and principles of Engineering Chemistry in a clear and concise manner, so that even an average student can grasp the intricacies of the subject. It includes the general concepts of structure and bonding, phase rule, solid state, reaction kinetics and catalysis, electrochemistry, chemical thermodynamics and free energy. Besides, the book introduces topics of applied chemistry like water technology, polymer chemistry and nanotechnology. Each theoretical concept is well supported by illustrative examples. The book also provides a large number of solved problems and illustrations to reinforce the theoretical understanding of concepts.
KEY FEATURES(i) Each chapter of the book provides a clear and easy understanding of the definitions, theories and principles.
(ii) A large number of well-labelled diagrams help to understand the concepts easily and clearly.
(iii) Chapter-wise glossary and important mathematical relations are given for quick revision.
(iv) Provides multiple choice questions with answers, short questions and long questions for practice.
