The New Chemistry: A Showcase for Modern Chemistry and Its Applications Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This original and fascinating book highlights the most important developments in chemistry over the past 30 years, from the discovery of new elements and synthetic techniques to the design of drugs and materials. Each chapter is written by one of the world's leading chemists in that particular field, including several Nobel Prize winners. Throughout, the volume is copiously illustrated with photographs and explanatory diagrams.

Book News Annotation:

An anthology of 17 reviews focusing not on applications as most general chemistry texts do, but on the underlying science. The contributors, three of then Nobel laureates, discuss the strategies behind making complex molecules, the intricate chemistry of metals, the chemistry that happens at surfaces, the study of chemical bonding and reactions, and other aspects. They ran out of book before they could get to analytic chemistry.
