About the book:

Using the chemistry of life as a unifying theme, this proven book offers an integrated and balanced treatment of chemical concepts. Balances qualitative discussions with careful development of basic problem-solving skills. Organized in sequential chapters covering general, organic, and biochemistry, the topics are woven together when appropriate by using organic examples in the general chemistry section and biochemical examples in the organic chemistry chapters. Many pharmaceutical, medicinal, and general interest subjects are used in the in-chapter end-of-chapter examples and exercises. Essays highlight chemistry in the world around us including many medical applications (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome; Gene Therapy in Cystic Fibrosis; Bone Marrow Transplants), dietary nutritional subjects (Bacteria and Ulcers; Diet, Amino Acid Supplements and Muscles), and general interest topics (Silicon Affects your Lifestyle; Recombinant DNA and Agriculture; Freon, Radicals, and the Ozone Layer).
