Oxford Chemistry Primers

The renowned Oxford Chemistry Primers 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. Supramolecular Chemistry provides a concise and fully-illustrated introduction to one of the fundamental areas of modern chemical research, the concepts of which are essential to understanding interactions between molecules. The primer is supported by online resources and is available for students and institutions to purchase in a variety of formats. The e-book offers a mobile experience and convenient access along with functionality tools, navigation features and links that offer extra learning support: www.oxfordtextbooks.co.uk/ebooks

Paul Beer obtained a PhD from King's College London in 1982 with Dr C. Dennis Hall. After a Royal Society European Postdoctoral Fellowship with Professor J.-M. Lehn and a Demonstratorship at the University of Exeter, he was awarded a Lectureship at the University of Birmingham in 1984. In 1990, he moved to the University of Oxford as a University Lecturer and Fellow at Wadham College, and became a Professor in 1998. His research interests focus on supramolecular host-guest chemistry and coordination chemistry.; Jason Y. C. Lim obtained his PhD from the University of Oxford in 2017 under the supervision of Professor Paul D. Beer. After a postdoctoral stint at the same institution with Professor Charlotte K. Williams on supramolecular polymerisation catalysis, he took up a position as a research scientist at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), Singapore. His research interests centre around the development of next-generation sustainable supramolecular materials, green catalysis and self-assembled hydrogels for biomedical applications.; Timothy Barendt was awarded his PhD from the University of Oxford in 2016, for research on molecular machines with Professor Paul Beer. This was followed by a Junior Research Fellowship, also at the University of Oxford (Christ Church), during which he worked on the supramolecular chemistry of carbon nanomaterials. In 2019 Timothy was appointed to a Lectureship at the University of Birmingham. His research interests include mechanically interlocked molecules, supramolecular sensors and organic electronic materials.
