The third edition of Chemistry continues the substantial commitment of Wiley to chemistry education in Australia and New Zealand, as well as for international markets. Chemistry 3e provides the appropriate mix of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry for the 2-semester introductory chemistry course.
In this edition all chapters have been revised, with selected chapter openers and examples being updated to reflect the latest developments in the field of chemistry. New worked examples, practice exercises and end of chapter questions have been added throughout, and many of the existing questions have been reworked with new values.

- Chapter openers: Provide highly visual examples of practical application of the chemistry to be presented in the chapter.
- Learning objectives: The learning objectives have been developed to articulate into the broader Chemistry Threshold Learning Objectives. They reflect the level of knowledge and skill that should have been acquired after studying each section of the chapter.
- Chemical Connections: Highlight the connections between the chemical concepts within the chapter, and the local applications of that chemistry in the world around us.
- Key terms: The important terminology introduced in the chapter is bolded and coloured. These key terms help students identify the most important concepts. They are also listed at the end of each chapter to help students assess their knowledge.
- Worked Examples: Are integrated throughout the chapter that model the various steps required to solve the problem.
- Practice Exercises are also included after most Worked Examples.
- Chapter summaries: Each chapter concludes with a succinct overview of the key concepts and processes discussed in the chapter.
- Review questions and problems: Each chapter features a revision set which covers the learning objectives from the chapters and features questions at various levels of difficulty.
- Additional exercises: Have been included to facilitate deep revision of the chapter topics.
