Overview

The most successful first edition General Chemistry text published in the last decade, CHEMISTRY: THE MOLECULAR SCIENCE continues in this new edition to emphasize the traditional core concepts covered in the general chemistry course. Lauded for its focus on visualization for understanding in support of students' conceptual development and its dedicated emphasis on content mastery through a proven problem-solving methodology that actively engages students in the chemical thought process, this Second Edition offers a complete pedagogical solution. The text's student focus is extended through General ChemistryNow—the first assessment-centered Web-based learning tool for general chemistry. Developed in concert, the unparalleled integration of text and media provides students with a seamless learning system. Based on extensive user and reviewer feedback, the Second Edition has been significantly revised to meet the content and organizational needs of today's general chemistry classroom. CHEMISTRY: THE MOLECULAR SCIENCE is intended for mainstream general chemistry courses geared toward students who expect to pursue further study in science, engineering, or science-related disciplines.

Meet the Author

JOHN W. MOORE received an A.B. magna cum laude from Franklin and Marshall College and a Ph.D. from Northwestern University. He held a National Science Foundation (NSF) postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Copenhagen and taught at Indiana University and Eastern Michigan University before joining the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1989. At the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Moore is W. T. Lippincott Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Institute for Chemical Education. He was Editor of the Journal of Chemical Education (JCE) from 1996 to 2009. Among his many awards are the American Chemical Society (ACS) George C. Pimentel Award in Chemical Education and the James Flack Norris Award for Excellence in Teaching Chemistry. He is a Fellow of the ACS and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). In 2003, he won the Benjamin Smith Reynolds Award at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in recognition of his excellence in teaching chemistry to engineering students. Dr. Moore has recently received the third in a series of major grants from the NSF to support development of online chemistry learning materials for the NSF-sponsored National Science Distributed Learning (NSDL) initiative.

Conrad L. Stanitski is Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at the University of Central Arkansas and is currently Visiting Professor at Franklin and Marshall College. He received his B.S. in Science Education from Bloomsburg State College, M.A. in Chemical Education from the University of Northern Iowa, and Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Connecticut. He has co-authored chemistry textbooks for science majors, allied health science students, nonscience majors, and high school chemistry students. Dr. Stanitski has won many teaching awards, including the CMA CATALYST National Award for Excellence in Chemistry Teaching; the Gustav Ohaus-National Science Teachers Association Award for Creative Innovations in College Science Teaching; the Thomas R. Branch Award for Teaching Excellence and the Samuel Nelson Gray Distinguished Professor Award from Randolph-Macon College; and the 2002 Western Connecticut ACS Section Visiting Scientist Award. He was Chair of the American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Education during 2001 and has been an elected Councilor for that division. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). An instrumental and vocal performer, he also enjoys jogging, tennis, rowing, and reading.

Peter C. Jurs is Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Jurs earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Stanford University and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Washington. He then joined the faculty of Pennsylvania State University, where he has been Professor of Chemistry since 1978. Dr. Jurs's research interests have focused on the application of computational methods to chemical and biological problems, including the development of models linking molecular structure to chemical or biological properties (drug design). For this work he was awarded the A.C.S. Award for Computers in Chemistry in 1990. Dr. Jurs has been Assistant Head for Undergraduate Education at Penn State, and he works with the Chemical Education Interest Group to enhance and improve the undergraduate program. In 1995, he was awarded the C. I. Noll Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching. Dr. Jurs serves as an elected Councilor for the American Chemical Society Computer Division and he was recently selected as a Fellow of the American Cancer Society.
