The objective of Engineering Chemistry is to build a solid foundation in fundamentals of chemistry and an interface of theoretical concepts with their industrial/engineering applications. This book is designed as an introductory course in Engineering Chemistry with complete coverage as per new AICTE curriculum. It aims to impart students an in-depth knowledge of various aspects of chemistry as applied to engineering. The content has been compiled after detailed analysis of the latest AICTE syllabus. The lucid explanation of the topics will help students understand the fundamental concepts and apply them to solve the problems. An attempt has been made to logically correlate topics with their applications.
