Introducing inorganic, organic and physical chemistry

Third Edition

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

  • This text offers 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
  • The mechanistic approach to organic chemistry makes this unique among introductory chemistry texts
  • The carefully-layered approach of Chemistry3 builds on the students' prior knowledge to bridge the gap between highschool and college-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 math problems 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 learned, and challenge them to go further in their thinking around the topic
  • Chemistry3 is supported by a full teaching and learning multimedia package including interactive exercises which encourage students to actively learn, videos of molecular structures, and screencasts in which authors talk through selected examples and key reaction mechanisms step-by-step, clearly linking theory to practice
