For two-semester or three-quarter courses in General Chemistry. nbsp; The authorrsquo;s goal in writing this book is to deliver the depth of coverage faculty want with the accessibility and clarity that students need for success.nbsp; Nivaldo J. Trorsquo;sChemistry: A Molecular Approachexplains difficult chemical concepts in a concise and clear student-centered manner while also providing faculty with the flexibility to go more deeply into many key, often neglected topics, such as electron diffraction, molecular orbital theory, and free-energy changes under non-standard conditions.nbsp; Chemistry is presented visually throughmulti-level images (macroscopic, molecular and symbolic representations), which helps students see the connections among the formulas (symbolic), the world around them (macroscopic), and the atoms and molecules that make up the world (molecular).nbsp; Every aspect of this book focuses students on recognizing that the behavior of matter is based on the behavior of atoms and molecules.

Nivaldo J. Tro received his BA degree from Westmont College and his PhD degree from Stanford University. He went on to a postdoctoral research position at the University of California at Berkeley. In 1990, he joined the chemistry faculty at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. Professor Tro has been honored as Westmont's outstanding teacher of the year three times (1994, 2001, and 2008). He was named Westmont's outstanding researcher of the year in 1996. Professor Tro lives in the foothills of Santa Barbara with his wife, Ann, and their four children, Michael, Alicia, Kyle, and Kaden. In his leisure time, Professor Tro likes to spend time with his family in the outdoors. He enjoys running, biking, surfing, and snowboarding.
