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.

Engineers who need to have a better understanding of chemistry will benefit from this accessible book. It places a stronger emphasis on outcomes assessment, which is the driving force for many of the new features. Each section focuses on the development and assessment of one or two specific objectives. Within each section, a specific objective is included, an anticipatory set to orient the reader, content discussion from established authors, and guided practice problems for relevant objectives. These features are followed by a set of independent practice problems. The expanded Making it Real feature showcases topics of current interest relating to the subject at hand such as chemical forensics and more medical related topics. Numerous worked examples in the text now include Analysis and Synthesis sections, which allow engineers to explore concepts in greater depth, and discuss outside relevance.

Supramolecular chemistry and nanochemistry are two strongly interrelated cutting edge frontiers in research in the chemical sciences. The results of recent work in the area are now an increasing part of modern degree courses and hugely important to researchers. Core Concepts in Supramolecular Chemistry and Nanochemistry clearly outlines the fundamentals that underlie supramolecular chemistry and nanochemistry and takes an umbrella view of the whole area. This concise textbook traces the fascinating modern practice of the chemistry of the non-covalent bond from its fundamental origins through to it expression in the emergence of nanochemistry. Fusing synthetic materials and supramolecular chemistry with crystal engineering and the emerging principles of nanotechnology, the book is an ideal introduction to current chemical thought for researchers and a superb resource for students entering these exciting areas for the first time. The book builds from first principles rather than adopting a review style and includes key references to guide the reader through influential work. supplementary website featuring powerpoint slides of the figures in the book further references in each chapter builds from first principles rather than adopting a review style includes chapter on nanochemistry clear diagrams to highlight basic principles
