Raymond takes a much-applied approach, filled with real-life examples that effectively connect chemistry to future careers in health-related fields. Chapter-opening vignettes focus on the link between chemistry and everyday topics. Online videos and articles from ScienCentral connect the chemistry presented in the text to current events.
