Trusted, innovative, and calibrated, Chemistry: The Central Science has been the leader in general chemistry for over a decade. The unrivaled problems, scientific accuracy, and clarity that keep Brown/LeMay/Bursten/Murphy/Woodward at the forefront of the discipline have been upheld and are woven seamlessly with each new feature in this edition. The Twelfth Edition is this text’s most ambitious revision to date—every word and piece of art has been scrutinized for effectiveness by all five authors. Based on abundant data culled from MasteringChemistry®, this intelligent, data-informed revision reflects the unparalleled teaching expertise of its author team. Each chapter has been updated and streamlined to remove any content not proven to increase student comprehension of the fundamental concepts of chemistry. Joined in this edition by new co-author Patrick Woodward, the book’s impeccable authorship gains a fresh, new perspective yet maintains its unified, consistent voice. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
