Revised Nuffield Advanced Science: Chemistry (Third Edition)

The Nuffield Advanced Chemistry course was first published in 1970 and was revised, so this was the third edition of a successful course. In this third edition there was just one students' book for the whole course and one teachers' guide. These were supported by a book of data that students were expected to consult regularly. Later in the course, students were required to study one of several special studies.
