Using the chemistry of life as a unifying theme. This widely used text offers an integrated and balanced treatment of the fundamentals of chemistry for physical and biological science majors. Topics are woven together when appropriate by using organic examples in the general chemistry section and biochemical examples in the organic chemistry section. The text is written for the student who has no prior course in chemistry and whose mathematical background is limited.

  • An integrated presentation of general, organic, and biological chemistry. Organic examples are used in the general chemistry chapters. Pg. 10, 133, 140, biochemical examples are used in the organic chemistry chapters. Pg. 184, 235, 391, 399, 415, 447
  • Careful development of basic problem-solving skills:
  • End-of-chapter questions are arranged in pairs (odd questions are answered in an appendix). Pg. 165-168.
  • Practice problems follow each worked example for immediate reinforcement of concepts. Pg. 206, 207.
  • Many pharmaceutical, medicinal, and general interest subjects are used in the in-chapter examples and exercises. Pg. 261, 326, 387. End-of-chapter examples and exercises. Pg. 43, 331, 332.
