This title introduces the reader to the huge variety of chemical reactions that shape our world. Find out all about explosions, learn about how to start reactions and understand how chemical equations work.
Dynamite is highly explosive. This is because its a chemical reaction waiting to happen. Chemical reactions happens all the time - even inside us! Reactants change to make new products. Explore physical and chemical properties of the substances that surround us in this explosive physical science book. From decomposition to acid-base reactions, fifth-grade readers will learn about six types of chemical reactions; activation energy and hopping electrons; reactivity, catalysts, and inhibitors; physical changes of mixtures; and more through this high-interest informational text filled with vibrant photographs. Aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, a hands-on Think Like a Scientist lab activity and a Your Turn page at the end of the book support STEM Education and provide young scientists with an opportunity to apply what theyve learned in the text. Helpful diagrams and text features, such as a glossary and index, are also included to reinforce content-area literacy and improve close reading.
Modeling of Chemical Reactions covers detailed chemical kinetics models for chemical reactions. Including a comprehensive treatment of pressure dependent reactions, which are frequently not incorporated into detailed chemical kinetic models, and the use of modern computational quantum chemistry, which has recently become an extraordinarily useful component of the reaction kinetics toolkit. It is intended both for those who need to model complex chemical reaction processes but have little background in the area, and those who are already have experience and would benefit from having a wide range of useful material gathered in one volume. The range of subject matter is wider than that found in many previous treatments of this subject. The technical level of the material is also quite wide, so that non-experts can gain a grasp of fundamentals, and experts also can find the book useful. A solid introduction to kinetics Material on computational quantum chemistry, an important new area for kinetics Contains a chapter on construction of mechanisms, an approach only found in this book
The calm of the night is shattered by an explosion and flames: a chemical factory is on fire, and a dangerous gas is drifting across town! This book looks at the topic of chemical reactions to explain the properties of chemicals and how they react, what has caused the explosion, and how the resulting fire and pollution can be tackled. It shows how the emergency services use their knowledge of science and technology to make the factory safe, and how investigators can analyse the evidence to determine the cause of the disaster.
You've never had a science teacher like this! Max Axiom is a super-cool super-scientist. Using powers he acquired in a freak accident, Max demonstrates and explains science in ways never before seen in the classroom.
Specials! are a teaching resource designed for KS3 students, whose literacy skills are considerably lower than their age. These books have an 'older format' to counteract the simple text, and cover various topics. They include activities, visuals, and assessment sheets, as well as teacher pages.
Green Chemistry is an inventive science based on fundamental research towards the development of new sustainable chemical processes. There is a great need to create a new type of chemistry focused on a new production system, in order to prepare the younger generation to get a greener future. The globalization pushes the chemistry community to adopt ethical issues. In this prospect Green Chemistry can achieve the approval of the society by teaching students to be confident in science and at the same time by convincing people that it is possible to attain technological development with respect and care for the environment we live in. This is why it is of foremost importance that education and ...
Reaching beyond the typical high school chemistry textbook, each title in this series offers real-life, concrete examples that illustrate the practical importance of the topic at hand, and includes a full-color periodic table, color photographs, sidebars, and a glossary.
