Chem1 Virtual Textbook
by Stephen Lower
The Chem1 Virtual Textbook provides comprehensive, in-depth coverage of the major topics in General Chemistry at the university and advanced-HS levels. It is best used as a reference text to supplement a conventional textbook or course syllabus, but it can also serve as the primary reading material in directed-study and distance-education courses.
