Chemistry: The Central Science is the most trusted book on the market--its scientific accuracy, clarity, innovative pedagogy, functional problem-solving and visuals set this book apart. Brown, LeMay, and Bursten teach students the concepts and skills they need without overcomplicating the subject. A comprehensive media package that works in tandem with the text helps students practice and learn while providing instructors the tools they need to succeed.


Emphasizing the wide variety of applications for chemistry, Brown (U. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), LeMay (U. of Nevada, Reno), and Bursten (Ohio State U.) devote entire chapters to applications, such as chapter 12 on the chemistry of modem materials. Beginning with more generalized examinations of basic concepts, this standard text, first published in 1977, then narrows to discuss electronic structure and bonding, the states of matter, the factors that determine the speed and extent of chemical reactions, and nuclear, metal, non-metal, and organic chemistry.
