Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Emphasizing the wide variety of applications for chemistry, Brown (U. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), LeMay (U. of Nevada, Reno), and Bursten (Ohio State U.) devote entire chapters to applications, such as chapter 12 on the chemistry of modem materials. Beginning with more generalized examinations of basic concepts, this standard text, first published in 1977, then narrows to discuss electronic structure and bonding, the states of matter, the factors that determine the speed and extent of chemical reactions, and nuclear, metal, non-metal, and organic chemistry.
