Chemistry3: Introducing Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry 3rd Edition
Chemistry³ establishes the fundamental principles of all three strands of chemistry; organic, inorganic and physical. By building on what students have learned at school, using carefully-worded explanations, annotated diagrams and worked examples, it presents an approachable introduction to chemistry and its relevance to everyday life.
- The most approachable and engaging introduction to chemistry available.
- Chemistry³ spans all three strands of chemistry – organic, inorganic and physical – to provide unrivalled coverage across the full breadth of the field.
- The author team comprises organic, inorganic and physical chemists, together with chemistry educators, ensuring the text is approachable and engaging while being uniformly authoritative throughout.
- Abundant full-colour diagrams provide visual reinforcement of the text.
- Takes a mechanistic approach to organic chemistry, making it unique amongst introductory chemistry texts.
- The carefully-layered approach of Chemistry³ builds on the students’ prior knowledge to support the transition between school and university-level chemistry, providing them with a firm understanding of the fundamental principles on which they can build later studies.
- Context boxes and photographs throughout the book highlight examples of chemistry in our everyday lives, engaging students and reminding them of the central role that chemistry plays in our society.
- The structured maths support helps students get to grips with the often daunting – yet essential – mathematical element of chemistry.
- Cross-references highlight the connections between each strand of chemistry to help students develop an understanding of the subject as a whole.
- Worked examples show students how to plan a strategy for solving problems.
- Questions at the end of each chapter encourage students to cement what they have learnt, and challenge them to go further in their thinking around the topic.
- Chemistry³ is supported by a full teaching and learning multimedia package including interactive exercises which encourage students to actively learn, videos of molecular structures, and screencasts in which authors talk through selected examples and key reaction mechanisms step-by-step, clearly linking theory to practice.
New to this edition
- The first chapter has been thoroughly revised to support the transition between A Level and university level study even more effectively.
- 200 new figures have been created to better illustrate and communicate key concepts.
- An additional 50 end of chapter problems are now included with outline answers supplied online, all linked to relevant sections of the chapter.
- The online learning resources now include interactive multiple choice questions and solutions for students.

About the Author
Pedro J. P rez (1965) graduated in Chemistry in 1987 in Sevilla. He received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry (1991) at the Universidad de Sevilla, under the direction of Prof. Ernesto Carmona. As a Fulbright Scholar, he then joined Prof. Brookhart’s group at UNC-Chapel Hill (USA) where he started the research related to the use of copper-based catalysts for diazo decomposition. In 1994 he was invited research at DuPont Exptal station (Wilmington, Delaware). In 1993 he moved to a new University founded in Huelva, as an Assistant Professor (1993-1995), later becoming Lecturer (1995) and finally Professor of Inorganic Chemistry (2005). The general research interest of his group is related to the development of late transition-metal complexes for their use as catalysts in transformations with hydrocarbons. He is also responsible of the Homogeneous Catalysis Laboratory, an Associate Unit to the Spanish National Council of Research (CSIC), that is part of the Center for Research in Sustainable Chemistry at the Universidad de Huelva. He received the Inorganic Chemistry Award of the Royal Society of Chemistry of Spain (RSEQ) in 2007. From 2010 he is President of the Organometallic Division of the RSEQ and since 2011 he is also Secretary General of RSEQ. Currently he is also member of the Advisory Boards of Organometallics and European Journal of Inorganic Chemsitry.

The Eighth Edition of Zumdahl and DeCoste’s best-selling INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY: A FOUNDATION combines enhanced problem-solving structure with substantial pedagogy to enable students to become strong independent problem solvers in the introductory course and beyond. Capturing student interest through early coverage of chemical reactions, accessible explanations and visualizations, and an emphasis on everyday applications, the authors explain chemical concepts by starting with the basics, using symbols or diagrams, and conclude by encouraging students to test their own understanding of the solution. This step-by-step approach has already helped hundreds of thousands of students master chemical concepts and develop problem-solving skills. The book is known for its focus on conceptual learning and for the way it motivates students by connecting chemical principles to real-life experiences in chapter-opening discussions and “Chemistry in Focus” boxes.
