Engineering chemistry is taught as a compulsory subject to first-year undergraduate students of

all branches of engineering. The need of the student is diversified, and, hence, we incorporated

a combination of both traditional topics and the latest trends in the subject area, including

emerging areas. The engineering chemistry syllabi enlist topics from all the branches of

chemistry; viz, inorganic, physical, organic, and material science. Therefore, there is a need for

a book that will exclusively cover all the topics prescribed by these technological universities.

This textbook is organized to meet the syllabi requirement of all universities. The primary

aim of this book is to enable the student to develop capabilities in self-learning and understanding

of the concepts. This book consolidates all the topics and presents the concepts in a simple,

comprehensive, and illustrative manner.

  • Comprehensive coverage of topics in an organized and systematic manner
  • A right balance between the theory behind the concepts and their applications
  • A neat and student-friendly visual presentation
  • Rich pedagogy to support and illustrate the material for easy and effective learning
  • Updating the edition with additional concepts like Smart materials and Molecular modelling
