Chemistry Textbooks


  • Crystallization - Science and Technology - Crystallization is one of the most ancient and interdisciplinary topics of research known to mankind. Crystals can be organic or inorganic and may be produced from melts, liquid solutions, vapors or even in solid state. Notwithstanding its inherently high complexity, the crystallization process is part of our everyday lives, from ice making in our homes to the most state-of-the-art chemical and electronic industry. 
  • Atomic Force Microscopy - Imaging, Measuring and Manipulating Surfaces at the Atomic Scale - a collection of current research from scientists throughout the world that employ atomic force microscopy in their investigations.
  • Chemical Kinetics - a book is designed to help the reader, particularly students and researchers of physical science, understand the chemical kinetics mechanics and chemical reactions.
