Editorial Reviews

When California-based chemist Harris wrote the 1997 first edition, he intended it as a textbook for a short and elementary introductory course for students whose primary interest lay outside chemistry. Feedback from that edition has convinced him to add many topics to the second that he rejected from the first. They include activity coefficients, a systematic treatment of equilibrium, EDTA and redox titration calculations, instrumental methods in electrochemistry, and an expanded discussion of spectrophotometry. He has also increased the number of experiments and chapter problems, and rearranged some of the material. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
