Abstract:

This textbook is designed to put chemistry in the context of the allied health sciences as well as the other disciplines in which an understanding of the fundamentals of chemistry and of living things is valuable ... To teach chemistry all the way from "What is an atom?" to "How do we get energy from glucose?" is a challenge. Throughout [the] general chemistry and organic chemistry coverage, the focus is on concepts fundamental to the chemistry of living things, and illustrations are drawn from this chemistry wherever practical. [The text is for] two-term introduction to general, organic, and biological chemistry. [It provides] integrated biological chemistry sequence ... which allows for the highest possible degree of flexibility. By varying the topics covered and the time devoted to them, the focus of the course can be adjusted to meet the needs of each instructor's student population and the duration of the course.-Pref
