Note: Some databases and search engines require that Boolean operators be typed in all caps to distinguish them from search terms.
To truncate a search term, enter a minimum of the first three letters followed by a question mark (?) or an asterisk (*).
Example:child* or infant*
Use parentheses to create more precise searches.
Example:(games or toys) and (child* or infant*)

If you are on a satellite campus or taking classes online, you have the same access to library resources as students on the Alva campus. That includes books in our print collection, which we can deliver by mail or courier. See the Interlibrary Loan page for details:
What do you associate with chemistry? Explosions, innovative materials, plastics, pollution? The public’s confused and contradictory conception of chemistry as basic science, industrial producer and polluter contributes to what we present in this book as chemistry’s image as an impure science. Historically, chemistry has always been viewed as impure both in terms of its academic status and its role in transforming modern society.
The 4th revised edition expands on the basic chemistry of high energy materials of the precious editions and examines new research developments, including hydrodynamics and ionic liquids. Applications in military and civil fields are discussed.
Chemical reactions at high pressures are widely used in modern technology (supercritical extraction is an example). On the other hand, critical phenomena is the more advanced field in statistical mechanics. There are thousands of theoretical and experimental articles published by physicists, chemists, biologists, chemical engineers and material scientists, but, to our knowledge, there are no books which link these two phenomena together. This book sums up the results of 222 published articles, both theoretical and experimental, which will be of great benefit to students and all researchers working in this field.
Organophosphorus Chemistry provides a comprehensive and critical review of the recent literature. Coverage includes phosphines and their chalcogenides, phosphonium salts, low-coordination-number phosphorus compounds, penta- and hexa- coordinated compounds, quiquevalent phosphorus acids, nucleotides and nucleic aicds, ylides and related compounds, phosphazenes and the application of physical methods in the study of organophosphorus compounds.
Radiochemistry or nuclear chemistry is the study of radiation from an atomic and molecular perspective, including elemental transformation and reaction effects, as well as physical, health and medical properties. This revised edition of one of the earliest and best-known books on the subject has been updated to bring into teaching the latest developments in research and the current hot topics in the field.
