The main theme throughout this textbook is to challenge students to think and question, while providing a solid foundation in the principles of chemistry. This seventh edition is written for students of all levels who would benefit from learning how to think, pose questions and tackle problems. Unlike other texts, this title begins with a detailed picture of the atom then builds toward chemistry’s frontier, continually demonstrating how to solve problems, think about nature and matter, and visualize chemical concepts as working chemists do. The authors aim to present readers and instructors with maximum flexibility and digestible chunks, as the content is presented as a series of 85 short topics. Allowing instructors to tailor their course and take a path through the text that matches learning objectives.

  • Flexible Use of Calculus - Calculus is used to illustrate appropriate topics and provide alternate, streamlined, or more advanced problem-solving method
  • Thinking Points - Encourage students to speculate about the implications of what they are learning and to transfer their knowledge to new situations
  • What Does This Equation Tell Us? - Helps students to understand mathematical equations by pointing out how changing each variable in the equation affects the outcome
  • Toolboxes - Show students how to tackle major types of calculations, demonstrating how to connect concepts to problem solving. They are designed as learning aids and handy summaries of key material.
  • Cumulative worked examples - Give students the opportunity to solve problems that combine concepts from two or more areas in the context of applications to medicine, biology, pharmacology, engineering, and the environment







 

  • Road Maps - Each Focus begins with a map that illustrates the interconnectedness between each topic. Instructors can use this feature to determine how best to move through the text.
  • Interludes - The applications sections appear between Focuses and show how chemistry is put to work in a variety of modern contexts.
  • Two-Column Approach for Kinetics vs. Thermodynamics - Specific to Focus 5, a two-column approach juxtaposes kinetics vs. thermodynamics in the coverage of chemical equilibrium, equilibrium calculations, and the response of equilibria to changes in conditions.
  • Online Homework Sapling Learning - Online Homework with both book specific and non-book specific questions with deep, tutorial-like feedback.








Fundamentals.- Focus 1: Atoms.- Focus 2: Molecules.- Focus 3: Bulk matter.- Focus 4: Thermodynamics.- Focus 5: Equilibrium.- Focus 6: Reactions.- Focus 7: Kinetics.- Focus 8: Main-group elements.- Focus 9: The d-block.- Focus 10: Nuclear Chemistry.- Focus 11: Organic Chemistry.- Major Techniques (Online Only)













Chemical Principles is available with Sapling Learning. Within Sapling Learning you’ll have access to a completely linked eBook with assignments focused on specific concepts throughout. Key features include:
  • Living Graphs for users to manipulate and control
  • Animations
  • Lab Videos connected to figures in the text 
  • Chemcasts replicate the face to face experience of watching an instructor work a problem using a virtual whiteboard

Loretta L. Jones is Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at the University of Northern Colorado. She taught general chemistry there for 16 years and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for 13 years. She earned a BS in honors chemistry from Loyola University, an MS in organic chemistry from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry as well as a D.A. in chemical education from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her physical chemistry research used electron paramagnetic resonance to investigate motion in liquids. 

Leroy Laverman is a senior lecturer in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He earned a B.S. in Chemistry from Washington State University and received his Ph.D. from U.C. Santa Barbara where he worked on ligand exchange reaction mechanisms in metalloporphyrins. He has been teaching chemistry at UCSB since 2000 and continues to instruct students in general chemistry and honors level courses.
