Discover all of the fundamental topics of general chemistry with this brief, reader-oriented book. CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS, 8e, provides a clear, concise presentation based on the authors' more than 50 years of combined teaching experience. The book includes graded and concept-driven examples as well as examples that focus on molecular reasoning and understanding, as well as "Chemistry: Beyond the Classroom" essays that demonstrate the relevance of the concepts and highlight some of the most up-to-date uses of chemistry. A strong, enhanced art program helps readers visualize chemical concepts. Integrated end-of-chapter questions and Key Concepts correlate to OWLv2, the #1 online homework and tutorial system for chemistry.

William L. Masterton received his PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1953. Two years later he began to work at the University of Connecticut, where he taught general chemistry and a graduate course in chemical thermodynamics. He has received numerous teaching awards, including an award from the Student Senate at the University of Connecticut, of which he was most proud. Dr. Masterton is co-author of the all-time best-selling general chemistry textbook CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES, which has sold well over 1.5 million copies. Dr. Masterton's field of research, solution thermodynamics, prepared him well for making maple syrup each March at the family farmhouse in New Hampshire.
Cecile Nespral Hurley received her MS at the University of California, Los Angeles. Since 1979, she has served as Lecturer and Coordinator of Freshman Chemistry at the University of Connecticut, where she directed a groundbreaking National Science Foundation-supported project on cooperative learning in general chemistry. She is one of a prestigious group of University Teaching Fellows who are selected by their fellow faculty members as models of teaching excellence and dedication. In addition, she coordinates the High School Cooperative Program in Chemistry through which superior Connecticut high school students take the university's general chemistry course at their schools. In her spare time, Professor Hurley roots for the University of Connecticut women's basketball Huskies--and roots out weeds from her country garden, which she likes to imagine rivals Monet's at Giverny.
"One of the appeals of this text is the concise, clear writing. Students appreciate concise, clear writing."
"This is one of the best-written textbooks available. Very nice language, very clear explanation, good illustrations and graphics. Any reasonably well-prepared student will be prepared to do the necessary exercises after reading."
"I like the collection of real-world examples and applications of chemistry in Chemistry: Beyond the Classroom feature. It is not a simple task to select good examples for chemistry in our modern society that are both understandable by freshman and still very interesting and important. The authors did fantastic job selecting interesting stories and explaining them with the textbook material."
"I think this is a good [example] format because it demonstrates the way students should be thinking through problems. I always recommend that my students start by making a list of what they know and what they are trying to find, as is done in the worked examples. I also encourage them to check their work as is done in the End Points."
