Publisher Comments:

Gain a comprehensive understanding of chemistry and see how it relates to health science with this hybrid version of INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY, 10th Edition. This cost-effective learning solution includes the textbook, the Cengage YouBook (a customizable, interactive eBook), and access to the OWL online learning system, resulting in a briefer printed text enhanced by online tutorials, simulations, randomized homework questions, videos, a complete interactive electronic version of the textbook, and more! An access code to OWL and the Cengage YouBook is included with the text. This updated bestseller features dynamic art, interesting examples, coverage of the latest issues, and a wide variety of medical and biological applications. As you explore topics such as botulin toxin as a cosmetic agent, implications for the use of antibiotics, the Atkins diet, and ultraviolet sunscreen, you will see how useful the study of chemistry is to so many aspects of your life. The book's built-in integration with OWL (Online Web-based Learning) turns your chemistry study time into active experiences that build your comprehension and bring concepts to life.

About the Author

Frederick Bettelheim was a distinguished university research professor at Adelphi University and a visiting scientist at the National Eye Institute. He co-authored seven editions of INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, and several Laboratory Manuals. He is also the author of EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY and co-author of numerous monographs and research articles. Professor Bettelheim received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis. William H. Brown is emeritus professor of chemistry at Beloit College, where he was twice named Teacher of the Year. His teaching responsibilities include organic chemistry, advanced organic chemistry, and, more recently, special topics in pharmacology and drug synthesis. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University under the direction of Gilbert Stork and did postdoctoral work at California Institute of Technology and the University of Arizona. He is a coauthor on INTRODUCTION TO GENERAL, ORGANIC AND BIOCHEMISTRY, 10e (Cengage Learning/Brooks Cole). Mary K. Campbell is Professor Emeritus of chemistry at Mount Holyoke College, where she taught biochemistry, general chemistry, and physical chemistry, as well as advised undergraduates working on biochemical research projects. Her avid interest in writing led to the publication of many highly successful editions of this textbook. Originally from Philadelphia, Dr. Campbell received her Ph.D. from Indiana University and completed postdoctoral work in biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University. Her areas of interest include researching the physical chemistry of biomolecules, specifically, spectroscopic studies of protein-nucleic acid interactions. She is also coauthor with Shawn Farrell on BIOCHEMISTRY, 7e (Cengage Learning, Brooks/Cole). Shawn O. Farrell, a native of Northern California, received his B.S. in biochemistry from University of California, Davis, studying carbohydrate metabolism. He completed his Ph.D. in biochemistry at Michigan State University, where he focused on the study of fatty acid metabolism. Dr. Farrell became interested in biochemistry while in college, as it was relevant to his passion for bicycle racing. He raced competitively for 15 years and now officiates bicycle races worldwide. He has taught biochemistry lecture and laboratory courses at Colorado State University for 16 years and now works for USCycling. Professor Farrell has written scientific journal articles about specific research projects and about laboratory teaching, as well as articles for sports publications, such as "Salmon, Trout, and Steelheader" magazine. He is co-author with Mary Campbell on BIOCHEMISTRY, 7e (Cengage Learning/Brooks Cole). Omar Torres received his Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from Texas A&M University and his Master of Science in chemistry from the University of California at Los Angeles. He is currently the Dean of Mathematics, Sciences, and Engineering as well as a professor in the Department of Chemistry at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, California. He is also a co-author on the bestselling Bettelheim General, Organic, and Biochemistry text.
