A Professor of Chemistry at Cornell University since 1980, Dr. McMurry previously spent 13 years on the faculty at the University of California at Santa Cruz. He has received numerous awards, including the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship (1969–71), the National Institute of Health Career Development Award (1975–80), the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award (1986–87), and the Max Planck Research Award (1991).


Dr. David S. Ballantine, Jr., received his B.S. in Chemistry in 1977 from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA., and his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1983 from the University of Maryland at College Park.  After several years as a researcher at the Naval Research Labs in Washington DC he joined the faculty in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry of Northern Illinois University, where he has been a professor for the past twenty years.  He was awarded the Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award in 1998, and was recently named the departmental Director of Undergraduate Studies.  In addition, he is the faculty advisor to the NIU Chemistry Club, an ACS Student Affiliate program.


Carl A. Hoeger received his BS in Chemistry from San Diego State Unversity and his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1983.  After  a postdoctoral stint at the University of California, Riverside, he joined the Peptide Biology Laboratory at the Salk Institute in 1985 where he ran the NIH Peptide Facility while doing basic research in the development of peptide agonists and antagonists.  During this time he also taught general, organic, and biochemistry at San Diego City College, Palomar College, and Miramar College. He joined the teaching faculty at UCSD in 1998. Dr. Hoeger has been teaching chemistry to undergraduates for over 20 years, where he continues to explore the use of technology in the classroom. In 2004 he won the Paul and Barbara Saltman Distinguished Teaching Award from UCSD.

This is actually an interesting and informative read for chemistry. The authors do a great job of explaining plus many worked examples throughout the book. I would also recommend the study guide/solutions manual to get all of the end of chapter questions answered.

This book is very informative and easy to understand. I am taking an intro to chemistry class and haven't had chemistry for roughly 13 years. Arrived in good shape for a used book and was delivered quickly to me.

I purchased this book for a basic chemistry class and pretty much only used it as a reference but it worked well when it was used.

I specifically bought this book NEW from Amazon because it said it is "now available with MasteringChemistry access". Well, it is NOT included. Which means I have to purchase the access code separately, to the tune of $45. Load of Crap.

Bought for a class in college. It has the same information as the other copies that you would probably have to pay hundreds for at the school bookstore

I got the book in time and it has a little doodles on the periodic table but it was described that it does contains that, other than that the book is in a very good condition and I'm very pleased.

This is exactly the book I needed. There was some writing on the pages, but not enough to be really annoying.
