Applied Guide to Progressive Physical Chemistry
Practical work has had a central and distinct role in chemistry. Experimentation is the essence of science learning. The purpose of doing experiments is to teach the principles of scientific inquiry, to improve understanding of theory through practical experience, to teach specific practical skills, such as measurement and observation, which can be useful in future studies, and to teach generic skills, such as teamwork and problem solving, to motivate and engage students. It is important to have a clear idea of why we practice science. It will be useful to choose the experiments to be carried out and how to integrate them into the “theory”. The Physical Chemistry Practical Guide aims to facilitate experimental exercise in the physical chemistry laboratory at the PG level of a student’s career.
The book “Practical guide to advanced physico-chemistry “will be very useful for teachers by providing practical knowledge on important aspects of physical chemistry experiments. The book covers a wide range of areas from basic to advanced experiments, including instrument calibration as well as highly accurate software for computational quantum chemical calculations This book has been divided into four sections: Part I consists of a general introduction, calibration of glassware, instruments, and precautions Part II concerns experiments that have a simple theoretical background and classical methods Part III includes experiments associated with more advanced theory and technique that requires a greater degree of experimental skill and use of instruments Part IV includes experiments associated with the use of computers and which are experimental in nature Covering all aspects of chemical experiments cl Basic, advanced and computational, this book will be useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students to gain confidence in their ability to perform a physical chemistry experiment and to appreciate the value of the experimental approach.

Dr Sumantra Bhattacharya obtained his doctorate. graduated from CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory, Pune, India, in 2013. The title of the thesis is “Study of Response Properties using Coupled Cluster Method”. After obtaining his PhD, he worked as a researcher at the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, in Kolkata, India, South Korea and the United States, as well as an assistant professor (ad hoc) at Guru Ghasidas University, Bilaspur. , India. He has published thirteen scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals and one book. His research is mainly focused on the development of very precise quantum chemical methods to study the response properties of molecules in their low-altitude excited state., The application of quantum chemical methods to study the properties of the excited state and their applications as well as in silico design of homogeneous reactions were reviewed.
