Partial contents:
The quantum world -- Quantum mechanics in action: atoms -- Chemical bonds -- Molecular shape and structure -- The properties of gases -- Liquids and solids -- Inorganic materials -- Thermodynamics: the first law -- Thermodynamics: the second and third laws -- Physical equilibria -- Chemical equilibria -- Acids and bases -- Aqueous equlibria -- Electrochemistry -- Chemical kinetics -- The elements: the main-group elements -- The elements: the d-block -- Nuclear chemistry -- Organic chemistry I: the hydrocarbons -- Organic chemistry II: polymers and biological compounds.
Abstract: Written for calculus-inclusive general chemistry courses, Chemical Principles helps students develop chemical insight by showing the connections between fundamental chemical ideas and their applications. Unlike other texts, it begins with a detailed picture of the atom then builds toward chemistry’s frontier, continually demonstrating how to solve problems, think about nature and matter, and visualize chemical concepts as working chemists do.
