Many of us think nothing of taking a painkiller to ease a headache, or to relieve the symptoms of 'flu. But how do drugs have their effect in the human body? How are new drugs discovered and designed to be as effective as possible? An Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry offers an engaging insight into the one field of chemistry that arguably has the greatest impact on our quality of life than any other.

Guiding us through the chemical composition of the three key environmental systems--the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and terrestrial environment--the authors explain the chemical processes which occur within and between each system. Focusing on general principles, we are introduced to the essential chemical concepts which underpin an understanding of the air, water, and soil and how they behave; careful explanations ensure that clarity is not sacrificed at the expense of thorough coverage of the underlying chemistry.
We then see how human activity continues to affect the chemical behavior of these environmental systems, and what the consequences of these natural processes being disturbed can be.
Environmental Chemistry: A Global Perspective takes chemistry out of the laboratory and shows us its importance in the world around us. With illuminating examples from around the globe, its rich pedagogy, and broad, carefully structured coverage, this book is the perfect resource for any environmental chemistry student wishing to develop a thorough understanding of their subject.

Global warming.  Renewable energy.  Hazardous waste.  Carbon footprints. These and other environmental topics are being discussed and debated more vigorously than ever.  Colin Baird and Michael Cann's Environmental Chemistry is the only textbook that explores the chemical processes and properties underlying these crucial issues at an accessible, introductory level (only general chemistry is a prerequisite).

With authoritative coverage that balances soil, water, and air chemistry, the new edition again focuses on the environmental impacts of chemical production and experimentation, offering additional "green chemistry" sections and new case studies, plus updated coverage of instrumental analysis, farming applications, bioengineering, and biotechnology.

This revision of Dr. Branwell's highly popular text retains the features which have made it so attractive to students and lecturers over the years. It remains an elementary and non-mathematical introduction to molecular spectroscopy that emphasizes the overall unity of the subject and offers a pictorial perception rather than a mathematical description of the principles of spectroscopy.

Renew your inorganic chemistry lab course. This completely revised and enlarged second edition of the classic now includes over 20 new experiments reflecting modern research, with many of the compounds only having very recently been described. The book offers detailed descriptions of more than 80 experiments, ranging from undergraduate to graduate level, covering organometallic, main group, solid state and coordination chemistry. Almost all reaction types, laboratory techniques and classes of compounds which constitute current curricula are exemplarily represented.

University teachers from all over the world have contributed experiments, each of which has been thoroughly tested. Special safety instructions are provided in each case, with highly hazardous substances substituted by less harmful ones wherever possible. The products are characterized by modern spectroscopic techniques and the book also includes exercises, questions and hints for further reading. A whole new set of experiments considers new knowledge gained by science education research: Discovery-oriented open-end experiments that resemble real research, allowing both teachers and students a more fascinating and efficient approach to standard courses in inorganic chemistry, already training the group-oriented approach to research carried out in academic and industrial settings.

This text is intended to provide students with instruction and valuable laboratory experience in the often neglected area of inorganic chemistry. Divided into four main parts, the book covers chemistry of the main group elements, chemistry of the transition metals, organometallic chemistry, and bioinorganic chemistry. Recognizing the high cost of materials, difficulties in waste disposal, and dangers of toxicity, the authors have adopted a ``microscale'' approach to experiments in the book, thereby also reducing the time students spend in preparation. With over 45 experiments, Microscale Inorganic Chemistry incorporates the use of a broad sampling of elements and also covers such topics as laboratory safety, equipment, report writing, and literature searching.

This introduction to the application of spectroscopic techniques in organic chemistry presupposes very little foreknowledge in the reader and begins at a level suitable for the early student. The main body of each chapter is supplemented by work on more recondite and recent work in the field.;Chapter 1 takes a look at the electromagnetic spectrum, and introduces the unifying relationship between energy and the main absorption techniques.;The next four chapters deal with the four mainstream spectroscopic methods - methods which together have completely altered the face of organic chemistry in little over a decade and a half. Most students will use infra-red spectroscopy first, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy will follow. Electronic spectroscopy is more limited in scope, and mass spectroscopy is the most recent and , in general, the most expensive. The final chapter provides both worked and problem examples in the application of these techniques, both singly and jointly.;An ELBS/LPBB edition is available

This book is concerned with the biosynthesis, biological activity, and ecological significance of secondary metabolites (natural products).These include alcaloids such as morphine, steroids like cholesterol, and antibiotics like the penicillins. The author considers each of the major classes of secondary metabolites according to the basic 'building blocks' from which they are derived and highlights the pharmacological and toxicological properties of compounds found in insects, plants, and microorganisms. The final chapter explores the possible ecological significance of these products. The second edition incorporates new material on the isolation and characterization of the enzymes of secondary metabolism and on the new NMR techniques which have revolutionized the elucidation of biosynthetic pathways. The book is important reading for advanced undergraduates and graduates in chemistry, biochemistry, and botany, as well as researchers in the pharmaceutical industry.

The third edition of this well-known textbook discusses some modern methods used in organic synthesis, and aims to show the value and scope of these methods and how they are used in the synthesis of complex molecules. The general plan of the book follows that of the second edition, but the opportunity has been taken to bring the book up to date and to take account of advances in knowledge and of new reactions which have come into use since publication of the earlier editions. Particular emphasis is placed on highly stereoselective organic chemistry, including stereoselective alkylations, aldol reactions, oxidations, epoxidations and reductions. New methods for the stereoselective formation of carbon-carbon double bonds, and modern application reactions are also fully considered. The book will be of use to students of chemistry and biochemistry at graduate and senior undergraduate level. It will also interest practising scientists in industry and research establishments who wish to familiarise themselves with modern synthetic methods.
