  • This is an account of the modern outlook on organic chemistry specially designed for students preparing for 'A' level G.C.E., university scholarships and pre-medical and first-year university examinations.
    It emphasizes that the diverse phenomena of inorganic chemistry conform to a pattern and seeks to awaken interest in the problems of the constitution and clasification of chemical substances.
    Except for a discussion on the atomic and molecular theories all historical treatment has been discarded.
    Present-day theories explaining the behaviour and properties of chemical substances are stated as plainly and simply as possible and are also used to explain the chemistry of the elements and compounds.
    The electronic theory of valency is boldly set out and the constitutions of all compounds subsequently mentioned are discussed in terms of this theory of valency.
    All the mathematical arguments can be followed without a knowledge of the calculus. "
  • " Much of ths book was re-written for this Second Edition.
    The most important changes are the inclusion of two new chapters on colloids and nuclear chemistry and extensive modifications in the chapters on periodic classification, atomic structure and valency, electrolytes, electrode potential and electrolysis.
    The range of examination questions included at the end of the book has been extended. "
