Blackman’s market-leading Chemistry is back in a new fifth edition. Known for making chemistry digestible, this text shows students how the science they are learning relates to everyday life. The new edition has been refreshed to include timely local ANZ examples on topics such as Indigenous chemistry and green chemistry.

From Lightboard videos of local academics that show students how to approach and solve problems, to questions with immediate feedback, the digital resources are designed to support students of all knowledge levels, regardless of background, and guide them through the real-life application of what they are learning.


  • Lightboard videos with local academics working through chemistry problems helps students develop their problem solving skills.
  • Many new ‘Chemical Connection’ boxes tie chemistry to real-world ANZ examples.
  • Concept reviews, interactive worked examples, visualisations, and in-situ knowledge check questions allow students to review, practice and apply what they have learned.
