Opportunities in chemistry today and tomorrow by George C Pimentel ( )
12 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 1,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1965, the National Research Council Published Chemistry: Opportunities and Needs. This report surveyed the stated of the discipline at that time. In the 20 years since then, chemistry has undegone a virtual revolution--in its techniques instrumentation, and capabilities. New frontiers lie before us. These new vistas made evident the need for a new survey of chemical science and its intellectual and economic impact. This report discussed the following issues: Control of Chemical Reactions; Dealing with Molecular Complexity; More Food; Better Health; Biotechnologies; Intellectual Frontiers; Instrumentation; Chemistry and National Well-Being; Better Environment; Continued Economic Competitiveness; Increased Nation Security; Intellectual Frontiers; Instrumenation; Manpower and Education; Resources for Basic Research in

Equilibrium ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deals with three questions: what is chemical equilibrium, how does the chemist recognize it, and how does one explain it. Stresses the dynamic nature of equilibrium and uses radioactive tracers to demonstrate the dynamic behavior of substances at equilibrium in a closed system. Uses an analogy in terms of fish population in two connected bowls, and animation using molecular models, to present the concepts
Catalysis ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1962 and 1989 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Emphasizes that catalysts are typical chemical reactants, unique in that catalysts are regenerated during the reaction
Gases and how they combine ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Shows some properties that distinguish gases. The volume of ammonia and hydrogen chloride that combine are measured quantitatively, and simple integer volume ratios are measured for the combinations of hydrogen and chlorine. Interprets these simple integer ratios in terms of Avogadro's hypothesis
Química una ciencia experimental by Chemical Education Material Study ( Book )
12 editions published between 1966 and 1987 in Spanish and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Zum Verständnis der chemischen Thermodynamik : eine Einführung in ihre Denkweise ; mit 27 Tabellen by George C Pimentel ( Book )
2 editions published in 1979 in German and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chimica generale by George C Pimentel ( Book )
4 editions published between 1975 and 1983 in Italian and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ionization energy ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1989 and 1992 in English and Spanish and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presents two methods of measuring ionization energy--photo-ionization and electron bombardment. Shows the use of a high vacuum system with a simple conductivity cell. Demonstrates the photo-ionization of sodium by the use of mercury light source and monochromator with sodium and three inert gases. Uses animation to show what occurs on the atomic level during the ionization process. Explains the relation of ionization energy to chemical reactivity
Chemical bonding ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Illustrates electrical interactions among the charged particles in two atoms and shows how these interactions can result in chemical bonding
Electric interactions in chemistry ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Demonstrates the relation of electric force to distance of separation of charged bodies and shows how this relation helps to explain ion migration and chemical reactions. The migration of positive and negative ions in an electric field and their mutual precipitation are shown in time-lapse photography and in animation
Mechanism of an organic reaction ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Demonstrates that the discovery of a reactor mechanism includes a determination of the chemical equation, the structures of the reactants and the products, the fate of each atom of the reactants, and the structures of the intermediate molecules
Química razonada by George C Pimentel ( Book )
5 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in Spanish and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Oportunidades en la química : presente y futuro by George C Pimentel ( Book )
3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Matrix Isolation Spectroscopy and molecular structure : a tribute to George C. Pimentel ( Book )
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
