A text that truly embodies its name, CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE connects the chemistry students learn in the classroom (principles) with real-world uses of chemistry (practice). The authors accomplish this by starting each chapter with an application drawn from a chemical field of interest and revisiting that application throughout the chapter. The Case Studies, Practice of Chemistry essays, and Ethics in Chemistry questions reinforce the connection of chemistry topics to areas such as forensics, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and industry.
