Thoroughly revised and updated throughout to strengthen its sound "atoms first" approach, this authoritative book now features new content, and new art. In addition, the text is now more reader friendly without compromising its rigor. Oxtoby became the ninth president of Pomona College on July 1, An internationally noted chemist, he previously served as dean of physical sciences at the University of Chicago. At Pomona, he holds a coterminous appointment as president and professor of chemistry. Before coming to Pomona, he was associated with the University of Chicago for nearly three decades, with brief interludes to serve as a visiting professor at such places as the University of Paris; the University of Bristol in Great Britain; and the University of Sydney in Australia.

This authoritative, modern text has been significantly revised at the sentence level to make it more student-centered without compromising its rigor. Authors David W. Oxtoby and H. Gillis are now joined by respected researcher and professor, Alan Campion of the University of Texas-Austin, who brings his expertise on surface physics and chemistry and condensed matter spectroscopy to the sixth edition. The new edition includes new mathematically accurate artistic representations of atomic and molecular orbitals, generated at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at UT-Austin, and a new atoms first approach with an early introduction of structure and bonding in Chapters Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Gillis conducts experimental research in the physical chemistry of electronic materials, emphasizing phenomena at solid surfaces and interfaces. Gillis received his B. Chemical Physics at The University of Chicago. Gillis joined the faculty of Georgia Institute of Technology. He has taught courses in general chemistry, physical chemistry, quantum mechanics, surface science, and materials science at UCLA and at Georgia Institute of Technology.

He has been an Alfred P. He has been recognized for his teaching by both students and peers with numerous, campus-wide teaching awards, including the prestigious Jean Holloway Award for Teaching Excellence in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences student-selected and his induction into the Academy of Distinguished Teachers peer-nominated.
