JOHN C. KOTZ & PAUL TREICHEL,
This is the third edition of CHEMISTRY & CHEMICAL REACTIVITY. Although some years have passed since the book was first conceived, the principle theme has remained the same: to provide a broad overview of the principles of chemistry and the reactivity of c hemical elements and compounds. We also have hoped to convey that chemistry, a field with a lively history, is also dynamic, with important new developments on the horizon. In addition, we want to provide some insight into the chemical aspects of the wo rld around us. For example, what materials are important to our economy, how does chemistry contribute to health care, and what role do chemists play in protecting the environment? By tackling the principles leading to answers to these questions, you ca n come to a better general understanding of nature and to an appreciation for some of the consumer products coming from the chemical industry. Indeed, one of the objectives of this book is to provide the tools and background information for you something of the chemical world is as important as understanding some basic mathematics and biology and having an appreciation for fine music and literature.
