Overview

Chemistry/: Introducing inorganic, organic and physical chemistry / Edition 2


Unique among introductory chemistry texts, Chemistry³, Second Edition, is written by a team of chemists to give equal coverage of organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry--coverage that is uniformly authoritative throughout. A special feature is the mechanistic approach to organic chemistry, rather than the old-fashioned "functional group" approach.

Chemistry³ tackles two issues pervading chemistry education: students' mathematical skills, and their ability to see the subject as a single, unified discipline. It provides structured support, in the form of careful explanations, reminders of key mathematical concepts, step-by-step calculations in worked examples, and a Maths Toolkit, to help students get to grips with the essential mathematical element of chemistry.

Frequent cross-references highlight the connections between each strand of chemistry and explain the relationship between the topics so that students can develop an understanding of the subject as a whole.

An accompanying Companion Website (www.oup.com/uk/orc/bin/9780199691852) offers a variety of resources:

For students:
- Interactive and animation-based activities
- Fully worked answers to many questions from the book
- 3D rotatable molecular structures
- Interactive 3D animations of key reactions
- Videos
- Links to relevant video content
- Learning outcomes, summaries, and key equations for each chapter
- A "Transition to Chemistry" site

For instructors (registered adopters of the book)
- A test bank of multiple-choice questions
- Downloadable illustrations from the book
