Chemistry³

Introducing inorganic, organic and physical chemistry

Fourth Edition

Andrew Burrows, John Holman, Simon Lancaster, Tina Overton, Andrew Parsons, Gwen Pilling, and Gareth Price

  • The most approachable and engaging introduction to chemistry available.
  • Chemistry³ spans all three strands of chemistry - organic, inorganic and physical - to provide unrivalled coverage across the full breadth of the field.
  • The author team comprises organic, inorganic and physical chemists, together with chemistry educators, ensuring the text is approachable and engaging while being uniformly authoritative throughout.
  • Its carefully-layered approach builds on students' prior knowledge to bridge the gap between school and university-level chemistry, providing them with a firm understanding of the fundamental principles on which they can build later studies.
  • Context boxes and photographs throughout the book highlight examples of chemistry in our everyday lives, engaging students and reminding them of the central role that chemistry plays in our society.
  • The structured maths support helps students get to grips with the often daunting - yet essential - mathematical element of chemistry.
  • Cross-references highlight the connections between each strand of chemistry to help students develop an understanding of the subject as a whole.
  • Questions at the end of each chapter encourage students to cement what they have learnt, and challenge them to go further in their thinking around the topic.
  • Chemistry³ is supported by a full teaching and learning multi-media package including interactive animations of molecular structures, and screencasts in which authors talk through selected examples and key reaction mechanisms step-by-step, clearly linking theory to practice.
  • Also available as an ebook enhanced with self-assessment activities and multi-media content to offer a fully immersive experience and extra learning support.
