Chemistry: Human Activity, Chemical Reactivity is an integrated print/digital resource package which presents chemistry as it is - a contemporary, engaging, human endeavour - not just old theories illustrated with facts. This integrated resource presents Chemistry as an integrated whole, blending as far as possible organic, physical, and inorganic chemistry phenomena with thought provoking case studies, vibrant illustrations and models that enable visualization and critical thinking without compromising scientific rigour.
With Peter Mahaffy's passion for helping undergraduate students and others see the intricate web that connects chemistry with so many other aspects of life, he has made innovative contributions to science education both in Canada and internationally. After receiving his Ph.D. in Physical Organic Chemistry from Indiana University, M...
