The fourth edition of PRINCIPLES OF MODERN CHEMISTRY, which has dominated the honors and high mainstream general chemistry courses, is a substantial revision that maintains the rigor of previous editions but reflects the exciting modern developments taking place in chemistry today. The text provides a unique approach to learning chemical principles that emphasizes the total scientific process--from observation to application--placing general chemistry into a complete perspective for serious-minded science and engineering students. Chemical principles are illustrated by the use of modern materials, comparable to equipment found in the scientific industry. Students are therefore exposed to chemistry and its applications beyond the classroom. This text is perfect for those instructors who are looking for a more advanced general chemistry textbook.

David W. Oxtoby became the ninth president of Pomona College on July 1, 2003. An internationally noted chemist, he previously served as dean of physical sciences at the University of Chicago. At Pomona, he holds a coterminous appointment as president and professor of chemistry. Before coming to Pomona, he was associated with the University of Chicago for nearly three decades, with brief interludes to serve as a visiting professor at such places as the University of Paris; the University of Bristol in Great Britain; and the University of Sydney in Australia. Oxtoby is a fellow of the American Physical Society and a member of the American Chemical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. After earning his bachelor's degree, summa cum laude, from Harvard University, he went on to earn his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley. As a research chemist, he is author or co-author of more than 165 scientific articles on such subjects as light scattering, chemical reaction dynamics and phase transitions. In addition to co-authoring Principles of Modern Chemistry and Chemistry: Science of Change, he has received fellowships from the Guggenheim, von Humboldt, Dreyfus, Sloan, Danforth and National Science foundations.Review:
"...the new edition is an improvement over what I thought was an excellent text already. The writing is clear and, in general, the proper length of treatment is provided for all of the addressed topics."
"I like the mathematical rigor in the text, and the clear writing. I also like the problems..."
"One of the REAL strengths of this book is the very interesting and informative problems. My students also like them!!!!! In My view the students learn a great deal of practical chemistry by solving well selected problems."
"I like the exercises as they are. The problems in the textbook are really excellent. Best that I have seen. [Overall], this is a great textbook."
