The curriculum is not linked to any textbook, but the follwing chapters
Zumdahl, Chemical principles, 2 ed. mainly corresponds to the
2 - 11, 13, 15-15, 21.
Chapters 2-4 are not lectured, but are assumed as background knowledge.
4-8 are all 20-50% more extensive than needed for this course.
Aylward-Fndlay "SI Chemical data" is used in the course
