Latimer, Devin R. Chemistry and the Environment: A Chemistry Perspective for discussion of Environmental Issues, adapted from OpenStax, Chemistry 2e. OpenStax CNX. Jul 19, 2019 http://firstname.lastname@example.org. DOI: 10.36939/ir.202008310919.
Chemistry and the Environment is designed to accompany a one-semester course in chemistry-based discussions of important environmental issues such as air pollution, the ozone layer, climate change and water quality. Chemical principles are introduced, followed by environmental ‘focus’ sections to base discussions on the scientific principles and societal intricacies of the individual topics. Instructors can also use the focus sections as a resource for presentation slides. Chemistry 2e is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of the two-semester general chemistry course. The textbook provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of chemistry and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them.
