This book is becoming a favourite among faculty and students. The third edition contains features that make it the most comprehensive and relevant text for any student enrolled in general chemistry. The text contains unprecedented macroscopic to microscopic molecular illustrations, consistent step-by-step worked exercises in every chapter, an extensive range of end-of-chapter problems which provide engaging applications covering a wide variety of freshman interests, including engineering, medicine, materials, and environmental studies. All of these qualities make the book the centrepiece for any general chemistry course. - There are three types of end-of-chapter problems: Concept Review Questions test students' general understanding of key ideas; Skill-Building Exercises, which gradually increase in difficulty, are written in pairs, with one of each pair answered in the back of the book; Problems in Context apply the skills learned to interesting scenarios and examples. - Chapter 12 now contains a brand new discussion of the physical behaviour of polymers and an expanded survey of the exciting field of nanotechnology. - Over fifty new pieces of the spectacular molecular art, that has been a signature of previous editions, are included.
