This new book, from the editor of the highly successful Pharmaceutical Analysis, sets out to define the area of pharmaceutical chemistry as distinct from medicinal chemistry. It focuses less on prototypes of drugs that perhaps never came to market and more on the drugs currently in use. The emphasis in the book is on the physicochemical properties of drug molecules and, in so far as they are known, the way that these properties govern the interaction of the drug with its target. Important physicochemical properties include pKa and partition coefficient and the properties of the structural elements within the drug which provide interactions with the target via a range of intermolecular forces. The last fifteen years has seen a great advance in the knowledge of protein structures and a strong emphasis is given to the interaction of drugs with proteins which shape the majority of drug mechanisms. Features: Focus on intramolecular actions Mechanisms of action richly illustrated Self-assessment included Comprehensive chapters on vitamins and biotechnological products This new book, from the editor of the highly successful Pharmaceutical Analysis, sets out to define the area of pharmaceutical chemistry as distinct from medicinal chemistry.

For two-semester general chemistry courses (science majors). Make critical connections in chemistry clear and visible McMurry/Fay/Robinson’s Chemistry, Seventh Edition, aims to help students understand the connections between topics in general chemistry and why they matter. The Seventh Edition provides a concise and streamlined narrative that blends the quantitative and visual aspects of chemistry, demonstrates the connections between topics, and illustrates the application of chemistry to their lives and careers. New content offers a better bridge between organic and biochemistry and general chemistry content, and new and improved pedagogical features make the text a true teaching tool rather than just a reference book. New MasteringChemistry features include conceptual worked examples and integrated Inquiry sections that help make critical connections clear and visible and increase students’ understanding of chemistry. The Seventh Edition fully integrates the text with new MasteringChemistry content and functionality to support the learning process before, during, and after class. MasteringChemistry is not included. Students, if MasteringChemistry is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MasteringChemistry should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MasteringChemistry from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics. Students can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions. Mastering brings learning full circle by continuously adapting to each student and making learning more personal than ever—before, during, and after class.

Buy the book and access card package to save money on this resource. Chemistry: A Molecular Approach, Third Edition is an innovative, pedagogically driven text that explains challenging concepts in a student-oriented manner. Nivaldo Tro creates a rigorous and accessible treatment of general chemistry in the context of relevance and the big picture. Chemistry is presented visually through multi-level images—macroscopic, molecular, and symbolic representations—helping students see the connections between the world they see around them (macroscopic), the atoms and molecules that compose the world (molecular), and the formulas they write down on paper (symbolic). The hallmarks of Dr. Tro’s problem-solving approach are reinforced through interactive media that provide students with an office-hour type of environment built around worked examples and expanded coverage on the latest developments in chemistry. Pioneering features allow students to sketch their ideas through new problems, and much more.

This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition. Chemistry: The Study of Matter and Its Changes, Sixth Edition will provide the necessary practice, support and individualised instruction that ensures success in the General Chemistry course. This text provides the forum for problem solving and concept mastery of chemical phenomena that leads to proficiency and success in the General Chemistry course. This edition will continue a molecular basis of chemistry tradition, but in a manner that overtly and repeatedly reinforces the way properties at the molecular level are related to properties we observe at the macroscopic level. The unique chemical tools approach employed in this book provides a way of thinking that helps those students develop the ability to analyse and solve both mathematical and conceptual problems. This text follows the successful three-step approach described as ANALYSIS, SOLUTION and IS THE ANSWER REASONABLE? This encourages the student to think about the problem before attempting to solve it, then working through the solution, and finally asking the important question Does the answer make sense? There are problem sets called Bringing It Together that contain problems which require students to bring together concepts from two or more of the preceding chapters. This reinforces learned concepts and builds concept mastery.

Today's students use textbooks differently than their predecessors. Chemistry, Sixth Edition is designed to map to the way students seek and process information. McMurry/Fay's text helps students and professors get to the heart of chemistry more effectively, and helps students see the connections to chemistry more clearly. With its spacious, unintimidating design and clear, direct writing style, this text is known for a smart, precise presentation that blends the quantitative and visual aspects of general chemistry. Chemistry is mastered when students make the right connections in three key areas: topics that are related, conceptual reasoning with quantitative work, and the different modes of communicating information. McMurry/Fay's Chemistry, Sixth Edition breaks through the traditional textbook limitations and help students make connections that have historically been more difficult.
