  • Chemistry: Atoms First - 2e (OpenStax)

    Author(s): Paul Flowers, University of North Carolina at Pembroke, Edward J. Neth, University of Connecticut, William R. Robinson, PhD, Klaus Theopold, University of Delaware, et al.

    Updated: Aug 18, 2020

    Description: The intention of “atoms-first” involves a few basic principles: first, it introduces atomic and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, and it threads these themes through subsequent chapters. This approach may be chosen as a way to delay the introduction of material such as stoichiometry that students traditionally find abstract and difficult, thereby allowing students time to acclimate their study skills to chemistry. Additionally, it gives students a basis for underst...[more]

  • Introductory Chemistry - 1st Canadian Edition

    Author(s): Jessie A. Key, Vancouver Island University, David W Ball, Cleveland State University

    Updated: Jul 21, 2020

    Description: The goal of this textbook is not to make you an expert. True expertise in any field is a years-long endeavor. Here I will survey some of the basic topics of chemistry. This survey should give you enough knowledge to appreciate the impact of chemistry in everyday life and, if necessary, prepare you for additional instruction in chemistry. Throughout each chapter, I present two features that reinforce the theme of the textbook—that chemistry is all around you. The first is a feature titled, appro...[more]

  • Organic Chemistry with a Biological Emphasis - Volumes I & II

    Author(s): Timothy Soderberg, University of Minnesota, Morris

    Updated: Jul 7, 2020

    Description: This textbook is designed for a two-semester, sophomore-level course in organic chemistry in which biological chemistry takes center stage. For the most part, the text covers the core concepts of organic structure, structure determination, and reactivity in the standard order. What is different is the context: biological chemistry is fully integrated into the explanation of central principles, and as much as possible the in-chapter and end-of-chapter problems are taken from the biochemical lite...[more]

  • Analytical Chemistry 2.0

    Author(s): David Harvey (DePauw University)

    Updated: May 10, 2019

    Description: Analytical chemistry is more than a collection of analytical methods and an understanding of equilibrium chemistry; it is an approach to solving chemical problems. Although equilibrium chemistry and analytical methods are important, their coverage should not come at the expense of other equally important topics. The introductory course in analytical chemistry is the ideal place in the undergraduate chemistry curriculum for exploring topics such as experimental design, sampling, calibration stra...[more]
