Chemistry provides a robust coverage of the different branches of chemistry with unique depth in organic chemistry in an introductory text helping students to develop a solid understanding of chemical principles, how they interconnect and how they can be applied to our lives.



Fourth Edition

Chemistry provides robust coverage of all aspects of a first year undergraduate chemistry course – with unique depth in organic chemistry in an introductory text – helping students to develop a solid understanding of chemical principles, how they interconnect and how they can be applied to our lives.


MasteringChemistry is the most advanced chemistry homework and tutorial system. Drawing on a research-enhanced library of problems that cover the entire general chemistry course, MasteringChemistry provides personal tutoring to students with immediate and specific feedback culminating in proven positive results.

See the guided tour inside to find out how Mastering Chemistry could help you.

Mastering proved to be a convenient, robust and totally reliable way of delivering weekly assignments covering all aspects of our first year course … there was a tangible improvement in both the level of engagement and quality of learning ... in all, a great success.”

Gordon McDougal, University of Edinburgh

  • Chapters are grouped into inorganic, physical, organic and analytical components, with integrating themes highlighted throughout. This provides flexibility and highlights the connections between different areas.
  • Topic boxes throughout the book highlight the applications of chemistry in industry, biology, medicine, the environment and the laboratory. The choice of topics ensures that students understand the relevance of chemistry to everyday life.
  • A new chapter, ‘Chemistry in the workplace’ introduces analytical techniques within the context of solving problems (pharmaceutical, forensic, environmental, commercial) in daily life.
  • Extended discussions of the relevance of chemistry to biology, medicine and the environment.
  • Definition boxes and end-of-chapter checklists provide excellent revision aids.
  • End-of-chapter problems reinforce learning and develop subject knowledge.  Each chapter also includes a new ‘Chemistry in daily use’ set of problems.
  • A companion website at features multiple-choice questions, rotatable 3-dimensional molecular structures, and a Mathematics Tutor. For full information and details of the Mastering Chemistry resource available with this book, see the Guided Tour.

Catherine E. Housecroft and Edwin C. Constable are both Professors of Chemistry at the University of Basel, Switzerland. They have extensive international teaching experience and their research interests include supramolecular and organometallic chemistries, nanotechnology, molecular devices and dye-sensitized solar cells. In 1997 Professor Constable was awarded the prestigious Howard lectureship for pre-eminence in organic chemistry or related disciplines by the University of Sydney, Australia.
