We have great pleasure in presenting this thirtieth edition of the book for T.Y. B.Sc. students, written as per the syllabus with choice based semester and grading system laid down by the university of Mumbai. This New Choice Based Semester and Grading system of the syllabus comes into effect from the academic year 2018-2019.

Great care has been taken to elucidate the fundamental concepts of each topic and wherever possible they are related to their position in the periodic table. Every effort has been made to present the subject-matter systematically in a logical and lucid style. The topics are explained, keeping in mind the syllabus and the lectures allotted. A number of questions are given at the end of each chapter, Even the difficult topics are explained in a very simplified way with a number of examples so that students will find them easier and interesting . A number of problems are included in the topic of “Structure of Solids.” SI Units have been used throughout the book.

The full syllabus prescribed by University of Mumbai is given in the beginning. But the topics are divided as per semester system and are given separately under semester V and semester VI, chapterwise, to enable the students to locate easily a particular topic. In some chapters, the order of some subtopics is changed, for better understanding of the topic.
