Conceptual Chemistry presents chemistry in a storytelling fashion with the frequent use of analogies and graphics that help the student to visualize the behavior of atoms and molecules. This behavior is then related to the macroscopic properties of matter lending deeper perspective into chemistry-related topics such as pharmaceuticals, nutrition, and the environment.
