Student-friendly and comprehensive, General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life (3rd Edition) – ISBN 9780136054542 by Karen C. Timberlake manages to use a simple writing without compromising authority and substance. It offers plenty of real-world applications and health-related examples discussed in bite-sized, step-by-step pieces to help students grasp all the fundamental concepts of chemistry while understanding the big picture. The book starts off with a prologue of how chemistry affects our lives, then continues to concepts such as measurements, energy and matter, atoms and elements, nuclear chemistry, and compounds and their bonds. Timberlake discusses chemical reactions and quantities, gases, solutions, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, and then introduces organic chemistry. Topics such as alkenes, alkynes, and aromatic compounds, alcohols, phenols, thiols, amines, and amides are also covered in the book. Students will also find an in depth discussion on amino acids and proteins, enzymes and vitamins, nucleic acid and protein synthesis, and metabolic pathways for carbohydrates, and energy production. Each chapter feature comprehension and conceptual questions to help students assess how much they have learned. This edition has been updated with ‘green chemistry' notes that discuss sustainable ideas like energy saving light bulbs, greenhouse gases, and biodiesel. General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life (3rd Edition) comes with an excellent supplement to enable students study at their own pace, and offers access to a tutorial and chemistry homework system that is engaging and effective. The author is also well known for her other books, including Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, and Structures Of Life: General, Organic, And Biological Chemistry.
