The second edition of Spencer's Chemistry: Structure and Dynamics has been the most successful reform project published for the General Chemistry course. The authors have revised the text, by building on the recommendations of the ACS's Task Force on the General Chemistry Curriculum and suggestions from the adopters of the first edition. This innovative text provides a fifteen-chapter introduction to the fundamental concepts of Chemistry. A collection of additional topics at the end of each chapter allow instructors to supplement and tailor their courses according to individual need. Three major themes link the content of the book: the process of science, the relationship between molecular structure and physical/chemical properties, and the relationship between the microscopic and macroscopic levels.
