About the Author

Gourkrishna Dasmohapatra :-
He has a doctorate in science from Jadavpur University. He teaches at Science and Humanities Section, Netaji Subhash Engineering College, Kolkata, as well as at Jadavpur University. He has worked as post-doctoral fellow at Polymer Institute in Czechoslovakia, at Universitat-Siegen in Germany and also at Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute, Kolkata for ten years in various capacities.
As a post-doctoral fellow, he worked on the synthesis and characterization of polymers and synthesis of some interesting compounds in the zeolite supercages. He also on the rare-earth doped glasses for their possible application in the fields of laser and phosphor materials, and controlled release glass fertilizers for application in fields. His current research focus is on the rare-earth spectroscopy in liquid media and some natural products for their application as acid-base indicators. He has more than thirty publications in international journals and conferences, as well as has some patents to his credit.

About the Book

The book has been designed according to the new AICTE syllabus and will cater to the needs of engineering students across all branches. The book provides the basis which is necessary for dealing with different types of physicochemical phenomena. Great care has been taken to explain the physical meaning of mathematical formulae, when and where they are required, followed by logical development and discussion of experimental behavior of systems. Every chapter has a set of solved problems and exercises. The idea is to instill sound understanding of the fundamental principles and applications of the subject. The author is known for explaining the concepts of Engineering Chemistry with full clarity, leaving no ambiguity in the minds of the readers. Although the book is primarily intended for BTech/BE students, it will also cater to the requirements of those pursuing BSc and MSc, including those of other disciplines like materials science and environmental science.
