Chemistry is the study of the composition, structure, and properties of matter and the changes it undergoes during reactions. Some topics include elements, molecules, compounds, ions, pH, bonds, synthesis, and methods of analysis such as spectroscopy and chromatography. Students and researchers involved with analytical chemistry, physical chemistry or inorganic, organic and polymer chemistry will find relevant resources here. Those in related disciplines such as biochemistry, geochemistry, chemical engineering or material science may also find this page useful.
Some engineering material can be difficult to locate. These reference sheets give general information about the resource as well as instructions on how to retrieve the material from the Virginia Tech library collection.
