Separation, Purification and Identification (The Molecular World)

Separation, Purification and Identification (The Molecular World)

by TheOpenUniversity (Contributor), Giles Clark (Author), LesleyE.Smart (Contributor)

Synopsis

This book looks at the common techniques used to prepare, purify and identify chemicals. Topics including distillation, recrystallisation, chromatography, elemental analysis, atomic absorption spectroscopy and mass spectrometry are discussed, and are illustrated on video on the accompanying CD-ROMs. Infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy are covered entirely through multi-media, with animations and virtual experiments. The reader is provided with examples for interpretation, and can draw in the structures using the software provided. There is also a set of interactive self-assessment questions. In all, the multi-media software suite comprises more than twelve hours of material. Separation, Purification and Identification concludes with a Case Study on Forensic Science, in which illustrations of criminal cases where spectroscopic techniques provided evidence are given. The Molecular World series provides an integrated introduction to all branches of chemistry for both students wishing to specialise and those wishing to gain a broad understanding of chemistry and its relevance to the everyday world and to other areas of science. The books, with their Case Studies and accompanying multi-media interactive CD-ROMs, will also provide valuable resource material for teachers and lecturers. (The CD-ROMs are designed for use on a PC running Windows 95, 98, ME or 2000.)

Media Reviews
This book with the accompanying material on CD-ROM may be thoroughly recommended as an introduction to chemical separation, purification and identification techniques at a level and in a format very well suited to the intended audience of a first year undergraduate on a chemistry or chemistry related course. * Physical Sciences Educational Reviews, No 6, June 2003 *
... clearly written and very well illustrated ... a very useful and readable book and would be suitable as a library addition to support Advanced level chemistry. * School Science Review, June 2003, 84, (309) *
... Separation, Purification and Identification is a sign of new age in education ... especially useful for teaching people who cannot spend long hours in the laboratories. * Chemia Analityczna (Warsaw), 48, 629, 2003, p 630 *
This is an excellent course in separation and spectroscopy. The clear layout of the text and the superb accompanying CDs make it fun to work through. * Chromatographia, 2003, 58, November 2003, No 9/10 *
