Summary
    General Chemistry for Engineers and Biological Scientists provides students with a focused and practical approach to learning the essential concepts of chemistry. The foundational knowledge they cultivate through the text can be applied to a number of scientific fields, including engineering, healthcare, forensics, pharmacology, and nursing.

    The text begins with a chapter dedicated to the explanation of atoms and compounds. Later chapters provide students with information regarding the periodic table, chemical reactions and equations, solutions, kinetics and equilibria, and acid-base chemistry. Readers gain a solid understanding of sources of energy, oxidation-reduction reactions, toxicology and pharmacology, the fundamentals of organic chemistry, and more. The book concludes with a chapter that speaks to agricultural chemistry. Helpful appendices provide readers with quick references to fundamental constants, conversion factors, aqueous and standard reduction potentials, and dissociation constants of some acids.

    General Chemistry is designed to support a two-semester course within the discipline, especially those that focus on the practical application of chemistry-related concepts.
