Eventually I chose to work at the National Bureau of Standards from 1963 until 1968 because it was close to my field--physical chemistry with a specialization in thermochemistry. I got involved in research that was important to the space program.
Twenty-two chapters begin with theoretical aspects of organoselenium chemistry, theoretical and computational aspects of organotellurium compounds, thermochemistry, and electrochemistry.
Chapters cover the fundamental principles of the scientific method; measurement units and how to apply them properly, especially when converting units or solving problems; atomic structure; elements and compounds; the shapes of molecules; chemical equations; thermochemistry; and more.
Arrangement is in 16 sections on the above topics and on basic constants, units, and conversion factors; symbols, terminology, and nomenclature; physical constants of organic compounds; properties of the elements and inorganic compounds; thermochemistry, electrochemistry, and kinetics; biochemistry; atomic, molecular, and optical physics; nuclear and particle physics; polymer properties; geophysics, astronomy, and acoustics; practical laboratory data; and health and safety information.
Topics cover the general, theoretical and computational aspects of the functional group such as quantum chemical treatment, structural and conformational chemistry and thermochemistry.
