9781305395893: Principles of Modern Chemistry, Hybrid Edition (with OWLv2 Printed Access Card)

Long considered the standard for covering chemistry at a high level, PRINCIPLES OF MODERN CHEMISTRY continues to set the standard as the most modern, rigorous, and chemically and mathematically accurate book on the market. This authoritative text features an "atoms first" approach and thoroughly revised chapters on Quantum Mechanics and Molecular Structure (Chapter 6), Electrochemistry (Chapter 17), and Molecular Spectroscopy and Photochemistry (Chapter 20). In addition, the text utilizes mathematically accurate and artistic atomic and molecular orbital art, and is student friendly without compromising its rigor. End-of-chapter learning aids now focus on only the most important key objectives, equations and concepts, making it easier for readers to locate chapter content, while new applications to a wide range of disciplines, such as biology, chemical engineering, biochemistry, and medicine deepen readers' understanding of the relevance of chemistry in today's world.

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:

"I believe it is written well for an honors-level freshman chemistry course; i.e. it covers all of the basic material but in a way that is more thorough and intelligent than other introductory texts."

"Excellent discussion of the basics from a scientific viewpoint and good illustrations of the principles. Excellent figures and example problems. Excellent homework problems."

"The traditional coverage of atomic and molecular theory has always been a strong point of Principles of Modern Chemistry. My opinion this is the ONLY text on the market that so methodically demonstrates an underlying connectivity between chemical processes, molecular structure, and energetics."

"My opinion this is the ONLY text on the market that so methodically demonstrates an underlying connectivity between chemical processes, molecular structure, and energetics."

"The greatest strength in this book is the mathematical rigor. Students learn in many ways and some need the mathematics. Too many of the general chemistry textbooks (even honors) seem to be taking out mathematics as a way to 'make the chemistry more understandable' instead of keeping the mathematics in and then describing the mathematics in an intuitive manner. The authors have worked on integrating the mathematics and the qualitative description. This has greatly improved the understandability of concepts."
