Chemistry: Core Concepts continues the substantial commitment of Wiley to chemistry education in Australia and New Zealand. The text has been developed by a group of leading chemistry educators for students entering university with little or no background in chemistry. It presents the core concepts in chemistry at a level that will enable students to build confidence and achieve success in their university chemistry studies in discipline areas such as the applied sciences, health sciences and engineering. All the fundamentals are covered including the use of chemistry language, symbols and molecular structures and it also develops the requisite quantitative skills. Chemistry: Core Concepts has been adapted from Wiley s market leading Chemistry text by Blackman, Bottle, Schmid, Mocerino and Wille. Many of the strengths of this book have been retained, however the narrative has been abridged and simplified to make it more accessible for foundation students. A hallmark feature of the core text is the stepped demonstration problems, which model a consistent problem–solving methodology designed to encourage students to break complex tasks down into their constituent parts. Another key pedagogical element of the text is the Chemical Connections feature, which brings additional meaning to the study of chemistry by highlighting the connections between the chemical concepts within the chapter and local applications of that chemistry in the world around us. Importantly, Chemistry: Core Concepts was envisaged as a print/digital product, where the narrative in the text is designed to be rendered as an interactive journey through a media–enhanced E–Text, providing students with the opportunity to view chemical reactions as movies, demonstration problems as animations and end–of–chapter questions are presented as online revision quizzes that provide instant feedback and progress reports. The digital version of the text will be delivered in the ground–breaking WileyPLUS Learning Space framework, an exciting new teaching and learning environment that provides a personalised learning experience for students and transforms courses into a vibrant, collaborative learning community.

Supramolecular chemistry is ‘chemistry beyond the molecule’ - the chemistry of molecular assemblies and intermolecular bonds. It is one of today’s fastest growing disciplines, crossing a range of subjects from biological chemistry to materials science; and from synthesis to spectroscopy. Supramolecular Chemistry is an up-to-date, integrated textbook that tells the newcomer to the field everything they need to know to get started. Assuming little in the way of prior knowledge, the book covers the concepts behind the subject, its breadth, applications and the latest contemporary thinking in the area. It also includes coverage of the more important experimental and instrumental techniques needed by supramolecular chemists. The book has been thoroughly updated for this second edition. In addition to the strengths of the very popular first edition, this comprehensive new version expands coverage into a broad range of emerging areas. Clear explanations of both fundamental and nascent concepts are supplemented by up-to-date coverage of exciting emerging trends in the literature. Numerous examples and problems are included throughout the book. A system of “key references” allows rapid access to the secondary literature, and of course comprehensive primary literature citations are provided. A selection of the topics covered is listed below. Cation, anion, ion-pair and molecular host-guest chemistry Crystal engineering Topological entanglement Clathrates Self-assembly Molecular devices Dendrimers Supramolecular polymers Microfabrication Nanoparticles Chemical emergence Metal-organic frameworks Gels Ionic liquids Supramolecular catalysis Molecular electronics Polymorphism Gas sorption Anion-pinteractions Nanochemistry Supramolecular Chemistry is a must for both students new to the field and for experienced researchers wanting to explore the origins and wider context of their work. Review: "At just under 1000 pages, the second edition of Steed and Atwood's Supramolecular Chemistry is the most comprehensive overview of the area available in textbook form...highly recommended." —Chemistry World, August 2009

From core concepts to current applications, Chemistry: The Practical Science promotes an interrogative approach that develops effective problem solvers and critical thinkers for today's world. Using the text and its pedagogical features as a model, students learn to appreciate the role of questioning in the process of chemistry and begin to think like chemists. In addition, applications woven throughout the narrative, examples, and exercises present core chemical concepts in the context of everyday life. This integrated approach encourages curiosity and demonstrates the relevance of chemistry and its uses in students' lives, their future careers, and their world. Chemistry introduces new topics as an instructor would in the classroom. The authors' approach to problem solving prompts students to begin by asking questions about the topic, think critically to arrive at a solution, evaluate their answers, and uncover related information about the concepts being explored. A dynamic art program, comprehensive end-of-chapter materials, and powerful technology resources complete this innovative textbook program. Real-world applications integrated throughout the chapter-opening case studies, examples, and exercises demonstrate why chemistry matters, as well as its uses in industry, the human body, and the environment. Boxed essays explore scientific applications; connections between nano-level interactions and chemistry at the macro level; and current, controversial topics related to chemistry. In addition, Applications Icons highlight Chemical Encounters and other real-world applications in the narrative. Sample worked-out exercises complement the authors' problem-solving approach and help students develop critical-thinking skills. Each exercise begins with a Question, followed by First Thoughts to capture and maintain student interest. The worked-out Solution, accompanied by Further Insights, extends the concept. Finally, Practice problems and corresponding End-of-Chapter Exercises provide an opportunity for students to apply this approach independently. Designed for optimal student support, Here's What We Know So Far in-chapter summaries reinforce complex or important chemical concepts, and The Bottom Line end-of-chapter reviews highlight the main topics of each chapter and provide key words with definitions and page references for further review. End-of-chapter problems test students' understanding of key concepts and problem-solving skills. Organized by chapter section and in pairs, Skills Review and Chemical Applications and Practices are followed by increasingly challenging Comprehensive Problems and Thinking Beyond the Calculation exercises that involve multiple concepts. The dynamic art program promotes visual learning and resonates with students who expect exciting and appealing graphics. Molecular-level illustrations of key concepts help students connect nanoscale activity to macroscale phenomena, while electrostatic potential maps use vibrant colors to demonstrate the distribution of electrons within a molecule. For further visual learning, the HM ClassPresent CD offers scaleable, searchable animations and lab demonstration videos for use in classroom presentations. The innovative technology program reinforces concepts and allows students to practice problem-solving strategies. Interactive teaching and learning tools—from Chemwork interactive homework problems to video lessons from Thinkwell—present content in a variety of formats to meet different learning styles. Accuracy reviewers worked diligently to ensure the integrity of content, exercises, and supplements for Chemistry: The Practical Science.

At the heart of coordination chemistry lies the coordinate bond, inits simplest sense arising from donation of a pair of electronsfrom a donor atom to an empty orbital on a central metalloid ormetal. Metals overwhelmingly exist as their cations, but these arerarely met ‘naked’ – they are clothed in an arrayof other atoms, molecules or ions that involve coordinate covalentbonds (hence the name coordination compounds). These metal ioncomplexes are ubiquitous in nature, and are central to an array ofnatural and synthetic reactions. Written in a highly readable, descriptive and accessible styleIntroduction to Coordination Chemistry describes propertiesof coordination compounds such as colour, magnetism and reactivityas well as the logic in their assembly and nomenclature. It isillustrated with many examples of the importance of coordinationchemistry in real life, and includes extensive references and abibliography. Introduction to Coordination Chemistry is a comprehensiveand insightful discussion of one of the primary fields of study inInorganic Chemistry for both undergraduate and non-specialistreaders.
