Why do certain substances react together in the way that they do? What determines the shape of molecules? And how can we predict whether a particular reaction will happen at all? Such questions lie at the heart of chemistry - the science of understanding the composition of substances, their reactions, and properties. While often fragmented into the strands of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, a full understanding of chemistry - and establishing answers to questions such as those above - can only be gained by seeing the subject as a single, unified whole. Chemical Structure and Reactivity: an integrated approach rises to the challenge of depicting the reality of chemistry. Offering a fresh approach to undergraduate teaching, it depicts the subject as a seamless discipline, showing how inorganic, organic and physical concepts can be blended together to achieve the common goal of understanding chemical systems. The book adopts a two-part structure allowing complete flexibility of use: a series of core concepts covered in Part 1 leads into a suite of further topics in Part 2, from which the instructor can select to match their particular course.With a lively and engaging writing style augmented throughout by purpose-drawn illustrations, and custom-developed online support, Chemical Structure and Reactivity makes taking an integrated approach in the teaching of chemistry a realistic proposition for the first time. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Chemical Structure and Reactivity features the following resources for registered adopters of the book and their students: Registered adopters: - Figures from the book in electronic format; - Worked solutions to all end of chapter exercises - A testbank of multiple-choice questions keyed to the book For students: - Multimedia content, linked to the book, enabling students to investigate the concepts and phenomena presented in the book in a fully interactive way

This is the most innovative and impressive undergraduate chemistry textbook I have been exposed to in years; it is quite outstanding in its creative and imaginative approach. The authors appear to have stood back and re-thought the whole approach to teaching chemistry at this level. The logical and innovative order in which material is developed and explained is all the more impressive when we take account of the fact that rigour and attention to detail is not compromised. Dr David McGarvey, Keele University The objective of the authors, to break down the barriers used to manage the teaching of chemistry, is laudable, and they achieve their aim, particularly in the first section of the book. They have assembled a teaching resource that is refreshing in its style and rigorous in its content. Education in Chemistry, 2009About the Author:
