Chemistry: Structure and Properties by Nivaldo Tro in pdf


Free download CHEMISTRY: Structure and Properties (2nd edition) written by Nivaldo J. Tro in PDF.

With Chemistry: Structure and Properties, author Nivaldo Tro incorporates his engaging and precise narrative to tell the story of chemistry with an atoms-first approach. 

This approach emphasizes that matter is particulate — composed of particles — and the structure of those particles determines the properties of matter. 

The relationship of structure affecting properties is the thread that weaves all of chemistry together, and this theme is applied to all aspects of the text, from content and organization to art and pedagogy. The book presents chemistry as a logical, cohesive story from the microscopic to the macroscopic, so students can fully grasp the theories and framework behind the chemical facts.

As per writer, “In this book, I tell the story of chemistry, a field of science that has not only revolutionized how we live (think of drugs designed to cure diseases or fertilizers that help feed the world), but also helps us to understand virtually everything that happens all around us all the time. 

The core of the story is simple: Matter is composed of particles, and the structure of those particles determines the properties of matter.

Although these two ideas may seem familiar to you as a twenty-first-century student, they were not so obvious as recently as 200 years ago. Yet, they are among the most powerful ideas in all of science.

You need not look any further than the advances in biology over the last half-century to see how the particulate view of matter drives understanding. In the last 50 years, we have learned how all living things derive much of what they are from the particles (especially proteins and DNA) that compose them.”
