The fifth revised edition of this book, which is directed towards undergraduate science, engineering and pharmacy students of the Indian universities, is a grossly revised work. Most of the chapters have been rewritten keeping in view the changes in the syllabi in the light of the 10+2+3 system. Thus, chapters on Atomic Structure, Chemical Bonding, Photochemistry, Physical Properties and Chemical constitution have been rewritten and changes have been made in other chapters also. Both the traditional cgs/esu and the newer SI systems of units have been used identically. This is so because in spite of wider acceptance of the SI units, the cgs units continue to be used in most chemical literature.

The book emphasizes fundamental rather than excessive details and develops the topics from the first principles. It contains a considerable number of worked-out examples exposing the students to practical applications of equations and helping them comprehend the magnitude of many different physiochemical quantities.
