"Chemistry in Your Life" makes chemistry relevant, integrating applications that help students see how chemistry affects their everyday lives. The second edition features new and updated applications of chemistry such as forensics, organic foods, drug synthesis and green chemistry. There is also increased mathematical coverage of chemical calculations along with an improved, more colourful pedagogy, all complemented by a full range of student and instructor supplementary resources. The supplements are: "Test Bank" (0-7167-7075-X); "Test Bank" CD-ROM (0-7167-6181-5); Instructor's CD-ROM (0-7167-0220-7); "Lab Manual" (0-7167-6956-5); "Solutions Manual" (0-7167-7074-1); and "Lab Experiments in Physical Chemistry" (0-7167-4975-0).
