From the Publisher
Thinking Chemistry covers material in a unique and highly visual way. At every stage the student is encouraged to think and understand, rather than simply memorize the facts.
The key concepts of chemistry are developed through analysis of experimental evidence in the first four sections of the book, and in the fifth and sixth sections these concepts provide a framework for organizing the descriptive chemistry of the elements.
DT Social environmental, economic, and technological applications of chemistry emphasized throughout
DT Highly illustrated with excellent diagrams and many photographs
