Summary

Aimed at the non-science major, this text leads through real events in a familiar world. Each chapter moves from the macroscopic description of a familiar situation to the submicroscopic scale of the chemistry that underlies it. Once the chemistry is explained, the student is introduced to the environmental, economic, and social impact of that chemistry. Students are asked to critically examine the chemical choices available to individuals and society at large and to analyze the risks and benefits inherent in those choices.

Features:

  • Context-based explanations of chemistry. Every chapter begins with a real-world process or event that encompasses the chemistry being developed in that chapter.
  • Cases-in-Point. Boxed elements, which appear in every chapter, present newsworthy examples of real-world applications.
  • Pro-Con Discussions. Presents both sides of a social issue arising from the uses of chemistry or chemical technology.
  • Consider This. Questions are posed throughout the text, under this heading, that encourage the student to think critically.
  • "Think Molecules". As much as possible, new chemical reactions and concepts are introduced with illustrations of the molecular events and structures that underlie the reaction or concept.
  • Problems. Worked problems throughout each chapter provide the student with a tutorial on the problem-solving process.
  • Hands-on Lab Applications.
  • Websites. Website addresses at the end of each chapter correspond to chapter content.
