The Fullerenes
In 1985, Buckminsterfullerene (fullerene-60) C60 was discovered serendipitously during graphite laser vaporisation experiments designed to simulate the chemistry in a red giant carbon star. The molecule was isolated for the first time in macroscopic amounts in 1990, a breakthrough which triggered an..

The 1702 Chair of Chemistry at Cambridge
The University of Cambridge's 1702 chair of chemistry is the oldest continuously occupied chair of chemistry in Britain. The lives and work of the 1702 chairholders over the past three hundred years, described here, paint a vivid picture of chemistry as it slowly transformed from the handmaiden of a..

Biophysical Chemistry of Dioxygen Reactions in Respiration and Photosynthesis
₦ 13,278
An important part of inorganic chemistry is the study of the behaviour of chemical elements and their compounds. If this behaviour is to be explained with any confidence, it needs first to be described in quantitative language. Thermodynamics provides such a language, and Dr Johnson's 1982 book is c..

The Computation of Chemical Equilibria
This book was first published in 1970. It addresses the increasing use of digital computers for equilibrium calculations in high temperature, high pressure processes, in rocketry and in explosives technology. It surveys the numerical techniques developed over the fifteen to twenty years preceding it..

This 1957 book was the first to be devoted to the fundamental properties of the aromatic compounds as a whole. It describes the experimental and theoretical attempts to explain their structure and discusses their characteristic properties and the mechanism of their reactions. Heterocyclic compounds ..

Chemistry Through Models
The use of modelling techniques in the analysis and solution of problems in science and other fields of knowledge is widespread and has often come under intensive scrutiny. This 1978 book concerns the use of models in learning, understanding, and practising chemistry. It will therefore be of interes..
