About the Author:

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 end-of-chapter problems are phenomenal. They reveal a depth and breadth of knowledge in the authors not often seen in general chemistry texts. Since many of the problems deal with real-world situations, it is very easy to demonstrate to the students the relevance of chemistry and the importance of studying chemistry."

"The treatment of quantitative subject matter is complete and rigorously correct." "Your book has always had great examples and end of chapter problems." "The accuracy of the information is, as far as I can tell, flawless. I know of no other general chemistry book as accurate as the Oxtoby texts." "The strategy statement (in the worked example) will help the student both to understand the solution and to view it as more than just an algorithm for solving "this type" of problem."

"The text is loaded with examples and all the trimmings that aid the student in learning chemistry This book has a unique format that is different from the top sellers . . . We prefer this text because it allows us to do more quantitative experiments early in the semester. The figures and tables in this chapter (15) are great. They are some of the best available on this subject."
