Ellixia Science specialises in textbooks which bridge A-Level and First Year University Chemistry courses.
The books address topics that many students struggle to understand and apply and so concentrate on infrared spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and multinuclear (1H and 13C) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
It is our intention that the books address these matters in accessible and relevant ways that are of real interest since too many molecules are introduced without any real context.
The first three books comprise a series on The Spectrometric and Spectroscopic Analysis of Natural Food Flavourings.
A consolidated, condensed single version written as a concise handbook comprises the fourth volume in this series.
The fifth volume in the series is an investigation into the application of these techniques to the determination of the structures of pheromones (an introduction to pheromones opens in a new window or tab).
It is also our belief that it is important that students learn something about the lives of the scientists and engineers who developed the techniques examined in these books.
Volume I of The Instrumental Spectrometric and Spectroscopic Analysis of Natural Food Flavourings includes, one - page, pen portraits of the individuals involved.
There are multiple resources relating to the fundamental principles of elemental analysis, determination of empirical and molecular formulas and the concepts behind infrared spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and multinuclear (1H and 13C) nmr spectroscopy on our resources page which opens in a new tab or window.
