Summary

From the opening example to the closing chapter, the Second Edition Update of CHEMISTRY IN FOCUS maintains a consistent focus on explaining the connections between the macroscopic world (what we can see) and the molecular world (what we cannot see). With multi-part images that feature photographs of everyday objects or processes and magnifications that reveal the molecules and the atoms responsible, the book's "molecular vision" art program is truly unique. In addition, Tro develops students' appreciation for the fundamental role the molecular world plays in our daily lives and an understanding of how major scientific and technological issues affect our society. With coverage of global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, drugs, consumer products, and even the infant field of nanotechnology, the book is always contemporary, always fascinating. This Update includes CNN Videos free with every new copy of the text and is now paperbound at the same low price.
