Written in a straightforward style, and tailored to majors and non-majors alike, Chemistry: A Fundamental Overview of Essential Principles gives readers a comprehensive introduction to contemporary topics in the discipline.  The book is directed to the development of analytical, problem-solving and quantitative reasoning skills in a manner that is accessible to a variety of students from various courses of study. Students will learn about the structure of matter, compounds and formulas, the mole, chemical equations, and stoichiometry. The first half of the book covers solutions and aqueous chemistry, gases, atomic structure, and molecular geometry. Later chapters take a deeper dive into essential topics necessary for STEM majors such as intermolecular forces, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, thermochemistry, electrochemistry, and kinetics, as well as organic chemistry and biochemistry. Additionally, comprehensive homework problem sets allow students to reinforce and apply the concepts covered in each chapter.  Chemistry is a highly effective instructional text that meets the needs of a broad student population. Its expansive coverage of the subject matter and inclusion of specialized topics make it appropriate for general chemistry I and II. However, it is also ideal for one-semester introductory or survey courses. David Khan is an associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas, where he has served as a member of the faculty since 2009 and currently serves as the chair of the Department of Chemistry and Physics. He received a Ph.D. in chemistry from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida in 2007 before going on to post-doctoral research with Dr. Edna Cukierman’s laboratory at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. Dr. Khan’s writings have been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of the American Chemical Society and Chemical Biology and Drug Design, as well as BMC Cancer. Jason Yarbrough is an assistant professor of chemistry at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas, where he has served on the faculty since 2014. After earning a Ph.D. in chemistry from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas in 2003, Dr. Yarbrough went on to conduct post-doctoral research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Following this, Dr. Yarbrough worked in the polymer industry for several years before joining the faculty at West Texas A&M University. He holds multiple patents and his writings can be found in numerous peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of the American Chemical Society, Macromolecules, and Inorganic Chemistry, to name a few.
