Applied and Food Chemistry

For a start, here is something I thought might be of interest, the top 50 chemicals produced in the USA.
A number of items of interest relating to Food Chemistry are covered in the section on Jamaican Themes for Lecture Material.

Notes from Dr Bakir on Electrochemistry and Spectroscopy are available as an Adobe Acrobat File.

A sensitive map showing a flavour wheel has been created to show examples of each of the major flavour types.
The chemistry of dyes, in particular those used as food additives, makes interesting reading material!

Booklist for courses

The current booklist is available as an Abode Acrobat PDF file.

Chemistry / Biochemistry Material

In a collaborative effort with staff in the Department of Biochemistry, we have produced some pages on logarithms and their use in pH calculations.

Tutorial Papers

A number of tutorial papers for courses are available for download and some answers have been posted as well.

Laboratory Manuals

The laboratory manuals for some courses are available.
