Chemistry: Principles, Patterns, and Applications represents the next step in general chemistry texts, with an emphasis on contemporary applications and an intuitive problem-solving approach that helps readers discover the exciting potential of chemical science. The book features modern applications, early integration of examples from organic and biochemistry, and a strong approach to problem solving that moves away from rote memorization to a thorough understanding of key concepts and recognition of important patterns. The worked examples throughout each chapter showreadershow to develop strategies and thought processes that will enable them to solve problems both quantitatively and conceptually. Kinetics and Equilibria, Chemical Kinetics, Chemical Equilibrium, Aqueous Acid-Base Equilibria, Solubility Equilibria, Chemical Thermodynamics, Electrochemistry, Nuclear Chemistry, Chemistry of the Elements, General Trends and the s-Block Elements, The p-Block Elements, The d- and f-Block Elements, Organic Compounds. For all readers interested in a general chemistry text with an emphasis on contemporary applications and an intuitive problem-solving approach.
