Chemistry: A Molecular Approach presents chemistry visually through macroscopic, molecular, and symbolic multi-level images to help you see the connections between chemistry and the world around you. Author Nivaldo Tro uses a consistent problem-solving approach (Sort, Strategize, Solve, and Check) throughout the text to show how to analyze a problem and devise a solution strategy. His consistent problem-solving approach and active learning resources are designed to engage you in becoming an expert problem solver and critical thinker.

The 6th Edition presents interactive digital features to guide you through key concepts and the problem-solving process. Updates reflect current research on the COVID-19 vaccine and an extensive diversity, equity and inclusion review.
