A general chemistry text, this work includes a balanced problem-solving programme, and an emphasis on showing that chemistry is indeed the central science by introducing students to interesting and relevant chemical applications.
This text fosters a conceptual understanding of chemical properties and principles. The authors present all of the information as a coherent package with clear, logical treatments of key topics and smooth transitions between sections and chapters. The periodic table and periodicity are used throughout as a unifying theme and as a framework on which to build greater understanding of chemical behavior and trends. Problem-solving is emphasized as a vehicle to a deeper understanding of principles rather than simply as an activity in formula memorization.
From the Publisher
Written by an extremely successful chemistry author, this book offers readers the most accessible, readable text available without compromising the integrity of the chemistry. It features an early introduction to the periodic and frequent references to the table throughout the book alone, with thorough integration of organic examples and descriptive chemistry.
