Chemistry for Degree Students (B.Sc. 1St Year)
About this eBook
PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION Overwhelming response to the first edition of the book has encouraged me to make some additions and revisions in the book. Notable changes that have been made are as under
Matter on inclusion compounds, charge transfer complexes and clatherates in Chapter 1 of organic chemistry has been rewritten to cover them thoroughly.
Determination of mechanism of organic reaction has been dealt with elaborately in Chapter 2 of organic chemistry.
Objective questions which form an essential part of the question paper in university examination have been added before the subjective questions in the exercises in each chapter.
A new chapter on Thermodynamics I containing first law of thermodynamics and thermochemistry, which forms a part of syllabus for B.Sc. I in some universities, has been added as Chapter 8 in physical chemistry section.
I hope that the changes made in the book will be found to be even more useful by the students. Patronage received by the teachers is gratefully acknowledged. Suggestions regarding further improvement in the book are welcome. I am thankful to the management and the editorial team of S. Chand Company Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi for help and support in publication of this revised edition.
