For two-semester or three-quarter courses in General Chemistry.
McMurry/Fay helps students and professors get to the heart of chemistry more effectively and helps students see the connections to chemistry more clearly.
McMurry/Fay is known for its smart and precise presentation that blends the quantitative and visual aspects of General Chemistry. The 5th edition of McMurry/Fay builds on this foundation making the right connections in general chemistry topically, visually, and quantitatively. Chemistry is mastered when students make the right connections in three key areas; topics that are related, conceptual reasoning with quantitative work, and the different modes of communicating information. McMurry/Fay breaks through the boundaries traditionally imposed by textbooks that have historically made it difficult for students to make these connections on their own. Topic Connections, Conceptual and Quantitative parallel presentation, and Text-Graphic Integration Objects make these critical connections clear and visible, so students see the chemistry the first time. When you see the connections, you see the chemistry.
Students don’t use textbooks exactly the same way they used them in the past. The new layout of MF5 was designed to map to the way students seek and process information, and is based on conversations with students about the way they study.

A Professor of Chemistry at Cornell University since 1980, Dr. McMurry previously spent 13 years on the faculty at the University of California at Santa Cruz. He as received numerous awards, including the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship (1969-71), the National Institute of Health Career Development Award (1975-80), the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award (1986-87), and the Max Planck Research Award (1991).
ROBERT C. FAY, Professor of Chemistry at Cornell University, has been teaching general and inorganic chemistry at Cornell since 1962. Known for his clear, well-organized lectures, Dr. Fay was the 1980 recipient of the Clark Distinguished Teaching Award. He has also taught as a visiting professor at Harvard University and at the University of Bologna (Italy). A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Oberlin College, Fay received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois.
