Written for students beginning a formal study of chemistry, this volume encompasses many different topics in and approaches to introductory chemistry. Chapters are devoted to topics such as the atom, elements and the periodic table, bonding, equilibrium and kinetics, solutions, acids and bases, and chemical reactions. Several chapters discuss broad areas of chemistry including organic chemistry, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, and industrial chemistry. Illustrations and diagrams help the student understand chemical structures and reactions, and numerous tables present a wealth of reference information. The historical developments of chemical concepts are traced, and biographical information is provided on key individuals responsible for the development of modern chemistry. Appendices include an extensive bibliography, a glossary of over 400 chemical terms, an overview of Nobel laureates in chemistry, and an element reference table. This book will be of use not only to students, but also to anyone seeking an overview of the field. Teachers of all grades can use Basics of Chemistry as a practical general reference.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An account of what chemistry is and what chemists do as opposed to a text of how to do chemistry, this engaging introduction to the field is at its best when speaking historically....Myers does a good job in providing an appropriate, introductory level of detail, choosing to err on the side of clear, general descriptions as opposed to subtle, difficult reasoning....for the beginner, the book will provide insight and motivation for further study. Recommended. General readers." - Choice
