Summary

This new edition of CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS continues to provide students with the "core" material essential to understanding the principles of general chemistry. Appropriate for either a one- or two-semester course, CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS, Fourth Edition is three hundred pages shorter than most general chemistry texts and lives up to its long-standing reputation as THE student-oriented text.

Author Bio

Masterton, William L. : University of Connecticut

William L. Masterton received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1953. Two years later, he arrived at the University of Connecticut, where he taught general chemistry and a graduate course in chemical thermodynamics. He received numerous teaching awards; the one of which he is most proud came form the Student Senate at UConn. Bill wrote, with co-author Emil Slowinski, the all-time best selling general chemistry textbook, CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES, which sold well over one and a half million copies. Bill has also written a definitive account of the Lizzie Borden case entitled LIZZIE DIDN'T DO IT. Bill's field of research, solution thermodynamics, prepared him well for making maple syrup each March at the family farmhouse in New Hampshire.


Hurley, Cecile N. : University of Connecticut

Cecile Nespral Hurley received her M.S. at the University of California, Los Angeles. Since 1979, she has served as Lecturer and Coordinator of Freshman Chemistry at the University of Connecticut, where she directed a groundbreaking National Science Foundation-supported project on cooperative learning in general chemistry. She is one of a prestigious group of University Teaching Fellows, who are selected by their fellow faculty members as models of teaching excellence and dedication. In addition, she coordinates the High School Cooperative Program in Chemistry, through which superior Connecticut high school students take the University's general chemistry course at their schools. In her spare time, she roots for the UConn Women's Basketball Huskies and roots out weeds from her country garden, which she likes to imagine rivals Monet's at Giverny.
