Oxford chemistry primers
  • Chemistry topics explained
  • (from the OUP website)The books in the renowned Oxford Chemistry Primers series provide accessible accounts of a range of essential topics in chemistry and chemical engineering. Written with students in mind, these books offer just the right level of detail for undergraduate study, and are invaluable as a source of material commonly presented in lectures. Cutting-edge examples and applications throughout the texts show the relevance of the chemistry being described to current research and industry. Additional learning features, including questions at the end of every chapter and online multiple-choice questions, encourage active learning and promote understanding. Diagrams, margin notes, further reading, and glossary definitions also help to enhance a student's understanding of these essential areas of chemistry.

    Most are available in the Chemistry Library for loan.
