  • Focused introductions designed to give students an in-depth understanding of a diverse range of important topics in modern chemistry.
  • Frequent diagrams, margin notes, and definitions support students in their learning.
  • Questions at the end of every chapter and full worked solutions online encourage active learning and promote deep understanding.

New to this Edition:

  • An Online Resource Centre provides full worked solutions to the end-of-chapter exercises for students, and downloadable figures for instructors.
  • End of chapter exercises enable the reader to test their understanding of the concepts being described.
  • More complex problems have been added to Part B, alongside explanations of how they may be solved using computer software.
  • The appendices, which further explain mathematical concepts mentioned in the text, have been expanded and moved to the end of the book.

The renowned Oxford Chemistry Primer series, which provides focused introductions to a range of important topics in chemistry, has been refreshed and updated to suit the needs of today's students, lecturers, and postgraduate researchers. The rigorous, yet accessible, treatment of each subject area is ideal for those wanting a primer in a given topic to prepare them for more advanced study or research. Moreover, cutting-edge examples and applications throughout the texts show the relevance of the chemistry being described to current research and industry. 

The learning features provided, including questions at the end of every chapter and online multiple-choice questions, encourage active learning and promote understanding. Furthermore, frequent diagrams, margin notes, further reading, and glossary definitions all help to enhance a student's understanding of these essential areas of chemistry.

NMR: The Toolkit describes succinctly the range of NMR techniques commonly used in modern research to probe the structures and properties of molecules in liquids. Emphasis is placed throughout on how these experiments actually work, giving a unique perspective on this powerful experimental tool.
