Chemistry3: introducing inorganic, organic and physical chemistryAndrew Burrows, John Holman, Andrew Parsons, Gwen Pilling and Gareth PriceOxford: OUP 2009 Pp1395 42.99 ISBN 978-019-9277-896Reviewed by Matthew Almond
The book has two other features I particularly liked. First, there is a good introduction to descriptive inorganic chemistry, an area often overlooked in introductory chemistry texts. There is also an excellent maths toolkit, which provides the essential material that a chemistry student needs.
Chemistry establishes the fundamental principles of all three strands of chemistry; organic, inorganic and physical. Using carefully-worded explanations, annotated diagrams and worked examples, it builds on what students have learned at school to present an approachable introduction to chemistry and its relevance to everyday life.
Andrew Burrows is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Bath. He completed his first degree and doctorate at the University of Oxford and worked in Strasbourg and Imperial College London before moving to Bath, where he is currently Head of Department. He has taught many aspects of inorganic chemistry, though his current courses focus on s- and d-block chemistry. His research interests are in porous materials such as metal-organic frameworks and he has published over 160 papers.

Unique among introductory chemistry texts, Chemistry is written by a team of chemists to give equal coverage of organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry--coverage that is uniformly authoritative throughout. A special feature is the mechanistic approach to organic chemistry, rather than the old-fashioned 'functional group' approach.Chemistry tackles two issues pervading chemistry education: the students' mathematical skills, and their ability to see the subject as a single, unified discipline. It provides structured support, in the form of careful explanations, reminders of key mathematical concepts, step-by-step calculations in worked examples, and a Maths Toolkit, to help students get to grips with the essential mathematical element of chemistry. Frequent cross-references highlight the connections between each strand of chemistry and explain the relationship between the topics so students can develop an understanding of the subject as a whole.

The Chemistry Department currently offers graduate programs leading to either the M.S. or Ph.D. in analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, or physical chemistry. In recent years about eight students per year have received the Ph.D. In the Chemistry Department, courses are offered in inorganic chemistry, organometallic chemistry, physical inorganic chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, physical organic chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, advanced analytical chemistry, optical spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, electrochemistry, thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, and polymer chemistry.
Upon arrival, new graduate students in Chemistry take examinations in analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry in order to place students properly in the graduate curriculum. The exams are nationally standardized by the American Chemical Society, and national norms are used. Appropriate course work and didactic opportunities are in place to strengthen any student weakness that may appear from the exams.
Fundamentally, chemistry is the study of matter and change. The way that chemists study matter and change and the types of systems that are studied varies dramatically. Traditionally, chemistry has been broken into five main subdisciplines: Organic, Analytical, Physical, Inorganic, and Biochemistry. Over the last several years, additional concentrations have begun to emerge, including Nuclear chemistry, Polymer chemistry, Biophysical chemistry, Bioinorganic chemistry, Environmental chemistry, etceteras. All of these areas of chemistry are addressed in our classes here at UWL to some extent, and by the research interests of our faculty in the Chemistry Department. The following descriptions of the five major subdisciplines were written by several of our faculty members in their field of expertise. All of our faculty members would be happy to elaborate, and/or discuss other aspects of chemistry that are not described below! UW-La Crosse's accredited Chemistry and Biochemistry programs blend technical, hands-on research experience with practical skill development.
PhysicalPhysical chemistry is the study of the fundamental physical principles that govern the way that atoms, molecules, and other chemical systems behave. Physical chemists study a wide array of topics such as the rates of reactions (kinetics), the way that light and matter interact (spectroscopy), how electrons are arranged in atoms and molecules (quantum mechanics), and the stabilities and reactivities of different compounds and processes (thermodynamics). In all of these cases, physical chemists try to understand what is happening on an atomic level, and why. Students who concentrate in physical chemistry may go onto pursue careers in industry, research or teaching. A lot of the current physical chemistry research in industry and academia combines the techniques and ideas from several fields. For example, some chemists apply physical chemistry techniques to investigations of the mechanisms of organic reactions (what collisions and bond rearrangements occur, how fast are they, how many steps are there, etc.) - this type of study is called physical organic chemistry. Others apply physical techniques to the study of biological systems (why do proteins fold into the shapes that they have, how is structure related to function, what makes a nerve work, etc.) - this type of study is biophysical chemistry. Still others may use physical techniques to characterize polymers or study environmental systems.
InorganicInorganic chemistry is commonly thought of as those areas within chemistry that do not deal with carbon. However, carbon is very important in many inorganic compounds, and there is a whole area of study known as organometallic chemistry that is truly a hybrid of the traditional disciplines of organic and inorganic chemistry. Some areas of inorganic chemistry that are especially important are catalysis, materials chemistry, and bioinorganic chemistry. Catalysts are chemical entities that increase the rate of a reaction without being consumed, and are typically based upon transition metals (usually) organometallic complexes of transition meta
