Engineering requires applied science, and chemistry is the center of all science. The more chemistry an engineer understands, the more beneficial it is. In the future, global problems and issues will require an in-depth understanding of chemistry to have a global solution.This book aims at bridging the concepts and theory of chemistry with examples from fields of practical application, thus reinforcing the connection between science and engineering. It deals with the basic principles of various branches of chemistry, namely, physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, surface chemistry, biochemistry, geochemistry, fuel chemistry, polymer chemistry, cement chemistry, materials chemistry, and asphalt chemistry. Written primarily for use as a textbook for a university-level course, the topics covered here provide the fundamental tools necessary for an accomplished engineer.
