Materials Technology, Volume 1: The Nature of Materials aims to fill the lack of textbooks about the nature of materials. The text contains various lessons regarding materials science and technology. The book begins by discussing the scope of materials technology, which includes biology, chemistry, economics, and psychology. The text then shifts to the properties of materials and discusses several information about atoms in a single material. A discussion on the pre-production and post-production of materials is presented in the entire chapter. The following chapter is about atoms, electrons, and protons. In the third chapter, the lesson shifts to bonds and materials. The last three chapters feature more information about a material, including its structures, chemical reactions, authenticity, and magnetic properties. The book targets those who are taking up an engineering technician course and gives readers a wider knowledge on the technology and nature of materials.
