General Chemistry for Engineers explores the key areas of chemistry needed for engineers. This book develops material from the basics to more advanced areas in a systematic fashion. As the material is presented, case studies relevant to engineering are included that demonstrate the strong link between chemistry and the various areas of engineering. Serves as a unique chemistry reference source for professional engineers Provides the chemistry principles required by various engineering disciplines Begins with an 'atoms first' approach, building from the simple to the more complex chemical concepts Includes engineering case studies connecting chemical principles to solving actual engineering problems Links chemistry to contemporary issues related to the interface between chemistry and engineering practices
Introduction to Chemistry, 4e by Bauer/Birk/Marks offers today's student a fresh perspective to the introduction of chemistry. This textbook offers a conceptual approach to chemistry by starting first with macroscopic phenomena, and then presenting the underlying microscopic detail. Each chapter opens with a real-life scenario that helps students connect abstract chemical concepts to their own lives. The math found in Introduction to Chemistry, 4e is introduced on a need-to-know basis, with "Math Toolboxes" in select chapters to help support the math skills required in that chapter.

This book is an introduction to organic chemistry and its compounds as related to plants. Chemistry tends to be seen as a field that is hard to comprehend and that has few connections with the living world. This book fills a gap as it eases access to organic chemistry by connecting it with plants and includes numerous photos and other illustrations. The book is a combination of organic chemistry with the living world of plants and is an introduction to organic plant compounds for the non-chemist. It starts with a review of basic concepts of chemistry as they relate to plant life, followed by an introduction to structures of organic compounds, which prepares the reader for the following chapters on primary metabolites and on plant fragrances, pigments, and plant defensive compounds. The final chapter relates plant compounds to human life, with subchapters on foods from plants, medicines, psychoactives, fibers, and dyes. Historic discoveries of plant compounds and their developments to contemporary uses, like modern pharmaceuticals, and a section on genetically modified plants, connect with topics of recent interest. The book leads the serious reader from chemistry basics to complex plant substances and their human uses and plant photos and stories accompany chemistry topics and chemical structures to aid understanding. The author, an organic chemist and plant enthusiast, has taught popular undergraduate college level courses on plant chemistry to non-chemistry majors and numerous field seminars to the general public for more than fifteen years. The book's topics and contents have been taught for many years and have proved successful in providing an understanding of plant compounds, organic compounds, and their importance. The book provides a basis for a better understanding of chemistry and its connections to the world of plants, the natural world in general, and to daily life. It is aimed at non-chemistry undergraduate students and to people in general who are interested in plants and who would like to learn more about them. It addresses an audience with little previous chemistry knowledge, yet, leads the serious reader to an understanding of sometimes complex plant compounds, by providing an introduction to chemistry basics, combining the chemistry with pictures and stories, and using simple, clear language. The book can be used both as a text to introduce organic chemistry as it relates to plants and as a text of reference for more advanced readers.
For one-semester courses in General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry A friendly, engaging text that reveals connections between chemistry, health, and the environment Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 13th Edition is the ideal resource for today's allied health students. Assuming no prior knowledge of chemistry, author Karen Timberlake engages students with her friendly presentation style, revealing connections between the structure and behaviour of matter and its role in health and the environment. Aiming to provide a better teaching and learning experience for instructors and students, the text highlights the relevance of chemistry through real-world examples. Activities and applications throughout the program couple chemistry concepts with health and environmental career applications to help students understand why course content matters. The text also fosters development of problem-solving skills, while helping students visualise and understand concepts through its engaging figures, sample problems, and concept maps. The 13th Edition expands on Karen Timberlake's main tenets: relevance, a clinical focus, educational research, and learning design. New applications added to questions and problem sets emphasise the material's relevance, while updated chapter openers with follow-up stories help students form a basis for making decisions about issues concerning health and the environment. New problem-solving tools in this edition, including Try It First and Connect, urge students to think critically about problem-solving while learning best practices.
This text is different--by design. By relating fundamental concepts of general, organic, and biological chemistry to the everyday world, Jan Smith effectively engages students with bulleted lists, extensive illustrations, and step-by-step problem solving. Smith writes with an approach that delivers need-to-know information in a succinct style for today’s students. Armed with an excellent illustration program full of macro-to-micro art, as well as many applications to biological, medical, consumer, and environmental topics, this book is a powerhouse of learning for students.

Blei and Odian’s text gives students the tools they need to develop a working understanding of chemical principles—rather than just asking them to memorize facts. Now available in a new media-enhanced version, complete with its on own online course space, learning environment ChemPortal, Blei/Odian is better suited than ever to meet the needs of the students taking this course. The Media Update version of Blei/Odian includes references to dynamic, interactive tutorials, which provide a step-by-step walkthrough of concepts and problem-solving skills, as well as answer-specific feedback and practice problems. We recognize that all introductory courses are not alike. For that reason, we offer this text in three versions, so you can choose the option that’s right for you: General, Organic, and Biochemistry (cloth: 0-7167-4375-2, paper: 1-4292-0994-1) – the comprehensive 26-chapter text. An Introduction to General Chemistry (0-7167-7073-3) – 10 chapters that cover the core concepts in general chemistry. Organic and Biochemistry (0-7167-7072-5) – 16 chapters that cover organic and biochemistry plus two introductory chapters that review general chemistry.
