The second edition of Chemistry: Core Concepts, 2nd Edition (Blackman et al.) has been developed by a group of leading chemistry educators for students entering university with little or no background in chemistry. It presents the core concepts in chemistry at a pace that is accessible for those studying chemistry for the first time, and at a level that will enable you to build confidence and achieve success in your university chemistry studies.

Available as a full-colour printed textbook with an interactive eBook code, this title enables every student to master concepts and succeed in assessment, with features designed to get the most out of learning by taking the roadblocks out of self-study.

You can expect components like lightboard videos of worked problems to help you break down the more challenging concepts into bite-sized chunks, animations and interactivities that are embedded at the point of learning to bring chemistry to life, Concepts Check questions at the end of every chapter that provide instant feedback and reinforces what you’re learning, and the ability to switch between reading something tangible and studying with online (or offline!) resources to allow for more efficient study with the option to search, highlight and annotate within the text.


  • Lightboard videos of worked problems from trusted educators that engage you in a meaningful way while breaking down the more challenging concepts into bite-sized chunks.
  • Concept reviews, interactive worked examples, visualisations and knowledge check questions in-situ allow you to review, practice and apply what you’ve learnt.
  • Topics are broken down into digestible chapters that help ease you into the content.
