    General Chemistry: Understanding Moles, Bonds, and Equilibria, Volume 1 introduces students to foundational concepts in chemistry with emphasis on real-world application. Throughout the text, students learn how the study of chemistry supports material science, forensics, medicine, and other disciplines.

    The text is organized into 13 chapters that can be taught traditionally or in a non-linear fashion. Topics include the scientific method, atoms, mass and molecules, aqueous solutions, gases, thermochemistry, electrons in atoms, and electron configuration. Students learn about chemical bonding, molecular geometry, liquids and solids, and mixtures.

    The book features problems that span multiple chapters, topic boxes that contain worked examples, concurrent presentation of the VSEPR and Valence Bond theories to allow each to reinforce the other, and integration of environmental topics within distinct sections of appropriate chapters. Introductions, summaries, problems, application examples, and meaningful appendices further facilitate student learning, rendering General Chemistry an ideal textbook for foundational chemistry courses.

    General Chemistry: Understanding Moles, Bonds, and Equilibria, Volume 2 is a continuation of this text with further coverage of equilibria, thermodynamics, nuclear chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry and biotechnology.

    John Moore holds an Ed.D. from Texas A&M University with an emphasis in science education. He previously served as a professor of chemistry at Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA) for 46 years and is currently working for SFA’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Center.

He is the coauthor of Chemistry for the Utterly Confused, Biochemistry for Dummies, 5 Steps to a 5 AP Chemistry, and Must Know High School Chemistry, among other works.
