General Chemistry is a free introductory textbook on chemistry. See the editorial for more information....


Author: Epina eBook Team

This edition of the eBook "General Chemistry" is based on contributions of various authors who devoted their work to the public under a Creative Commons License. We took up these modules and compiled it to an introduction to general chemistry, providing additional features such as links between the pages, an index, a hierarchical table of contents, pointers to simulations, and many more aids for the learner. Further, we added many new images, and converted the already existing images to a common style, so that the eBook can be regarded as a homogeneous work, despite the many authors contributing to it.

Finally, we decided to additionally publish this eBook as an MS Windows HTMLHelp file offering the same navigation structure as the Web-based version. We hope that this service makes it easier for many beginners to study chemistry.

Best wishes,
