Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, (retired), Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh, India

This book is a laboratory companion to Chemistry of Natural Products: A Unified Approach, which was extensively revised and enlarged. Material in the text can be explored from a practical perspective using this revised edition of the laboratory handbook.

The second edition of a bestseller, this book discusses the common structural and stereochemical features of naturally occurring organic compounds. It includes a variety of examples to illustrate varied aspects. The author explores the increasing application of physical (spectroscopic) methods like IR, NMR, CD, ORD, and MS, without undermining the importance of classical chemical methods. The section on problem solving helps to develop an analytical and critical evaluation of the data.

The first edition of the handbook, published in 2003, has been sold out, but ongoing demand for it prompted the publication of this edition. Several experimental procedures described in it are unique in the sense that they are not readily available in other books on practical organic chemistry. Additional experiments have been added to this edition as explained in the accompanying preface. The chemistry of natural products can be fully appreciated and enjoyed only by combining theoretical knowledge in the classroom with experimentation in the laboratory. This can be accomplished through the use of this laboratory handbook, which provides procedural details of the varied aspects of natural organic compounds.

Mark E. Tuttle

Polymer Chemistry Second Edition Paul C. Hiemenz Timothy P. Lodge

University of Washington, Seattle, USA

University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, Minneapolis, USA

This second edition introduces the mechanics of composite materials and structures and combines classical lamination theory with macromechanical failure principles for prediction and optimization of composite structural performance. It addresses topics such as high-strength fibers, manufacturing techniques, commercially available compounds, and the behavior of anisotropic, orthotropic, and transversely isotropic materials and structures subjected to complex loading.

Written by established professors, this highly recommended edition focuses in on polymer properties at the molecular level. The authors discuss chemical structures, synthesis, characterization, and properties. This edition integrates theories and experiments made possible by instrumentation advances. Mathematical tools, fully derived problems, and wellorganized content can be scaled to meet the needs of introductory and advanced courses in chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering.

Emphasizing the macromechanical (structural) level over micromechanical issues and analyses, this unique book integrates effects of environment at the outset to establish a coherent and updated knowledge base. In addition, each chapter includes example problems to illustrate the concepts presented.
