Who is it for?
With the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of science, it can be difficult to learn everything needed for a project. Because each eBook focuses on one topic, it’s easy for researchers to get a technical overview of the subject. For professors, eBooks can provide an excellent teaching resource on the chosen topic without requiring students to buy yet another book. Assign individual chapters or entire books as needed to supplement curriculum.
You can choose recent books (2018–present), eBooks Archives (1949– 2017), or a combination of both. Each chapter is authored by an expert in the field, and the collection of chapters is edited by internationally recognized leaders in the field. They cover a broad range of topics, including agricultural and food chemistry, cellulose and renewable materials, chemical education, organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, materials, and many others.
