Basic Training in Chemistry is unique in that it gathers into one source the essential information that is usually widely dispersed. This book can be used as a quick reference guide to the different disciplines of Chemistry: the areas covered are General, Inorganic, Organic, and Instrumental Analysis. Although comprehensive in nature, Basic Training in Chemistry is not meant to replace any standard textbook but rather to be a supplement or additional source of information, or even a comprehensive review guide.
Wide agreement as to a clear and useful nomenclature is of great benefit in
any field of science. The nomenclature here presented merits wide acceptance
among terpene and other interested chemists because of the thorough way in which
the careful work was done. Many versed in the chemistry of terpenes and many
others experienced in naming chemical compounds were consulted. Full opportunity
for criticism was offered.
The researchers who choose to work in the field of trace element determinations are not necessarily experienced analytical chemists. However, once involved in this sort of research, they either should acquire the necessary instrumentation in their laboratory or should be able to communicate with their collaborating colleagues who will probably be analytical chemists. In any case, this type of reader will need to know more about analytical che
At one time, computational chemistry techniques were used only by experts
extremely experienced in using tools that were for the most part di½cult to
understand and apply. Today, advances in software have produced programs
that are easily used by any chemist. Along with new software comes new
literature on the subject. There are now books that describe the fundamental
principles of computational chemistry at almost any level of detail.
