Introducing Inorganic, Organic, and Physical Chemistry

Second Edition

Andrew Burrows, John Holman, Andrew Parsons, Gwen Pilling, and Gareth Price

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.

New to this Edition:

  • Includes frequent cross-links to an extensive bank of online resources, helping students to visualize molecular structure and gain a deeper understanding of reaction mechanisms
  • New QR code images throughout the text link students to online screencasts, in which the authors talk through selected examples and key reaction mechanisms step by step
  • Coverage of new topics including Raman spectroscopy and retrosynthesis
  • New and updated examples of chemistry in context
  • New questions at the end of chapters
