Integrating Chemistry: Crossing the Millennium Divide
Keywords:Chemistry textbooks, Communication, Education, General chemistry, Inorganic chemistry
AbstractA personal account of the development of two University level chemistry books is presented. The account focuses on ways to integrate the traditional branches of chemistry into a textbook that captures the imagination of students and relates chemical principles and fundamental topics to environmental, medicinal, biological and industrial applications. The ways in which teaching methods have changed over two decades and how web-based resources can be used to improve the communication of chemical (in particular structural) concepts are highlighted.
