Chemistry in Context 7th Edition Pdf Book Description:
Following in the tradition of their first six variations, the aim of this powerful, issues-based textbook, Chemistry in Context, seventh edition, will be to set chemical principles on a need-to-know foundation for non-science majors, permitting them to learn chemistry from the context of their lives and important issues confronting science and the planet. The traditional way of Chemistry in Context reflects the current technological difficulties as well as the chemistry fundamentals imbedded in them. The seventh edition applies novelty principles as possible. Global warming, alternative fuels, nutrition, and genetic engineering are examples of problems which are covered in Chemistry in Context. Global sustainability is not just a challenge; rather, it is the defining challenge of our century. The seventh edition of Chemistry in Context is designed to help students better meet this challenge. With its new Chapter 0, “Chemistry for a Sustainable Future,” our intent was to establish sustainability as a core, normative part of the chemistry curriculum and part of the foundational learning.
Sustainability adds a new degree of complexity to Chemistry in Context . In part, the complexity arises because sustainability can be conceptualized in two ways: as a topic worth studying and as a problem worth solving. As a topic, sustainability provides a new body of content for students to master. For example, the tragedy of the commons , the Triple Bottom Line , and the concept of cradle-to-cradle are part of this new body of content and are introduced in Chapter 0. As a problem worth solving, sustainability generates new questions for students to ask—ones that help them to imagine and achieve a sustainable future. For example, students will fi nd questions about the risks and benefits of both acting and of not acting on behalf of future generations. To incorporate sustainability, then, requires more than a casual rethinking of the curriculum. Green chemistry, a means to sustainability, continues to be an important theme in Chemistry in Context . As in previous editions, examples of green chemistry are highlighted in each chapter. In this new edition, look for even more examples. This expanded coverage offers the reader an even better sense of the need for and the importance of greening our chemical processes. For easier access, the principles of green chemistry are now listed on the inside front cover of the text.
