About this title

Synopsis:

This new fourth edition of General Chemistry takes an atoms-first approach from beginning to end. In the tradition of McQuarrie's many previous works, it promises to be another ground-breaking text. This superb new textbook combines the clear writing and wonderful problems that have made McQuarrie famous among chemistry professors and students worldwide. Presented in an elegant design with all-new illustrations, it is available in a soft-cover edition to offer professors a fresh choice at an outstanding value.


Student supplements include an online series of descriptive chemistry Interchapters, a Students Solutions Manual, and an optional state-of-the-art Online Homework program. For adopting professors, an Instructor's Manual and a CD of the art are also available.

"McQuarrie is a genius."
Harry Gray, Caltech


"Atoms First seems to be the flavor of the year in chemistry textbooks, but many of them seem to be little more than rearrangement of the chapters. It takes a master like McQuarrie to go back to the drawing board and create a logical development from smallest to largest that makes sense to students."
Hal Harris, University of Missouri-St Louis


"McQuarrie's book is extremely well-written, the order of topics is logical, and it does a great job with both introductory material and more advanced concepts. Students of all skill levels will be able to learn from this book."
Mark Kearley, Florida State University

About the Author:

Donald McQuarrie's name is synonymous with excellence in chemical education. As the author of landmark chemistry books and textbooks, from his classic text on Statistical Mechanics to his quantum-first tour de force on Physical Chemistry, McQuarrie's best selling textbooks are highly acclaimed by the chemistry community.  McQuarrie received his PhD from the University of Oregon, and was Professor Emeritus from the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Davis.  He died on July 6, 2009.


Peter A Rock received his bachelor's degree in chemistry from Boston University in 1961. He then went on to UC Berkeley, where he was awarded a doctorate in physical chemistry and chemical thermodynamics in 1964. That same year, he joined the faculty at UC Davis as an assistant professor, where he remained for the rest of his career. Rock wrote textbooks for students at all levels of chemistry and geochemistry, averaging a book every five years. Peter A. Rock died June 14, 2006 after an extended illness.


Ethan Gallogly, joined McQuarrie as co-author on this new edition. He earned his BS from the University of Connecticut and his PhD from the University of California, Davis. Following completion of his doctoral studies, Gallogly, who is bilingual, worked as a foreign expert in Mainland China. Afterward, he accepted a position at the University of California at Berkeley as a Chemistry Lecturer and Laboratory Coordinator for three years before joining the faculty of Santa Monica College in 1999. Most recently, Gallogly has been awarded a sabbatical to research fuel cell technology at Sichuan University.
