A long-established leader in liberal arts chemistry, John Suchocki’s Conceptual Chemistry continues to take a student-centered approach in the new Fifth Edition. This robust program uses a conversational writing style to engage and involve non-science majors, helping them visualize the behavior of atoms and molecules to understand our macroscopic environment. With a focus on fundamental concepts – not mathematical models.
This book presents the proceedings of the International Conference on Recent Trends in Materials and Devices, which was conceived as a major contribution to large-scale efforts to foster Indian research and development in the field in close collaboration with the community of non-resident Indian researchers from all over the world. The research articles collected in this volume - selected from among the submissions for their intrinsic quality and originality, as well as for their potential value for further collaborations - document and report on a wide range of recent and significant results for various applications and scientific developments in the areas of Materials and Devices. The technical sessions covered include photovoltaics and energy storage, semiconductor materials and devices, sensors, smart and polymeric materials, optoelectronics, nanotechnology and nanomaterials, MEMS and NEMS, as well as emerging technologies.
The basic principles are explained with examples from student's daily life situations and every topic is followed by thought-provoking questions. Relevant illustrations have been given, wherever necessary. The language used is simple and lucid which keeps the interest of the students alive till the end of the topic.
