Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chemical processes have always been part of life. They enable our bodies to function and are the basis of countless substances and processes we take for granted. This intriguing book explores the world's natural chemistry - how we understand and exploit it.


From the first use of fire, people have practiced chemistry to produce food and drink, tan leather, make dyes for clothes and cosmetics, work metals, and produce glass and pottery. Today, chemicals help to purify our water, improve agriculture, and manufacture drugs, synthetic fabrics, and plastics. Our growing knowledge of the Earth's elements, the properties of atoms and DNA, and how substances interact has resulted in many new technologies, products, and scientific advances.


With stunning demonstrations of key experiments and ideas, Chemistry is a fresh and exciting introduction to the discoveries that have shaped and revolutionized our way of life.
