About Chiral Publishing and An Introduction to Chemistry by Mark Bishop


An Introduction to Chemistry by Mark Bishop was first published by Benjamin Cummings (Pearson) in 2002. They returned the publishing rights to me a couple of years later, and I started Chiral Publishing Company to publish and distribute the book myself.

The learning package associated with the textbook has grown to include animations, tutorials, glossary quizzes, PowerPoint presentations, audio presentations, chapter checklists, concept maps, and more. Click here to get information.

There are two versions of the text. Click here to get information about them.

One of the recent additions to the project is the creation of an electronic text/tools/homework package in partnership with WebAssign. Click here to get information about the WebAssign package.

Because I am publishing the text myself, I can provide a high-quality learning package for a much lower price than the large academic publishers. Click here to get more information about pricing.

If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to send me an email.
