The authors are concerned to lead the chemist into a knowledge and understanding of the factual basis of the subject with emphasis on the occurrence, preparation, physical properties, uses, and chemistry of the elements.
This is not a book about theoretical and physical-inorganic chemistry. There are 31 chapters, of which 29 are concerned with the elements. There is a heavy emphasis on the s- and p-block elements, at the expense of the d- and f-blocks, a trend not in line with current inorganic research. Each chapter is well written and contains data upon industrial processes showing the relevance and importance of chemistry in society, a topic sadly neglected in the past.
There is little emphasis upon reaction mechanisms and design in synthesis. Furthermore, although there is much information on the solid-state structures of molecules, there is little data on the nature of ions, or the conformation and fluxional properties of molecules, in solution. However, this is an impressive text, which both teachers and students will find most stimulating and useful.
Kemmitt The Mechanical Universe. Introduction to Mechanics and Heat. By Richard P. Olenick, Tom M. Apostol and David L. Cambridge University Press, Consequently, this reviewer has only had the main course and not the complete meal.
That said, the book is a bold attempt at drawing together the disciplines involved in studying this field, albeit in the context of teaching physics and not repeat not engineering. Such is the cracking pace set by the authors that the Second Law of Thermodynamics receives all of 9 pages of text which omits the major constraint on obtaining higher thermal efficiencies, namely materials properties at high temperatures.
There is a slight hint of unreality in that practical aspects are often absent. Doubtless the accompanying TV programmes remedy this deficiency. Based solely on the text, the reviewer feels that this is a useful resource for high school physics teachers.
Andrew Porteous Microbial Gas Metabolism. Mechanistic, Metabolic and Biotechnological Aspects. Edited by Robert K. Poole and Crawford S. The first chapter sets the scene with a clear discussion of the inorganic chemistry that underlies the important role played by metalloenzymes in gas metabolism.
There follows sections on the various gases. Treatment of oxygen is largely restricted to cytochrome oxidases which, although interesting, is a somewhat limited interpretation of the title. Hydrogen is covered in a clear and well-balanced review emphasising its future as a fuel.
The section on carbon monoxide shows the value of including associated short communications. Skip to content. Search for books, journals or webpages All Pages Books Journals. However, due to transit disruptions in some geographies, deliveries may be delayed.
