The Chemistry Book Big Ideas Simply Explained

AUTHOR:

An accessible guide to more than 95 of the most important discoveries and theories in the history of chemistry

Discover and understand the key ideas that underpin the core science of chemistry and learn about the great minds who uncovered them

Written in plain English, The Chemistry Book is packed with short, pithy explanations of some of the most historic moments in science, from the birth
of atomic theory to the discovery of polyethylene and the development of new vaccine technologies to combat COVID-19. Simple graphics, such as flowcharts and mind maps, support the text and make the explanation of key concepts easy to follow.

Arranged in chronological order, the book covers key themes in the physical and natural sciences, such as geochemistry and the elements. Within each chapter, a series of articles traces the history of scientific thought and introduces the work of the scientists who have shaped the subject such as John Dalton, Marie Curie, Dmitri Mendeleev, Kathleen Lonsdale, and Stephanie Kwolek. Along the way, the book addresses some of the most fundamental questions in science, such as what is the universe made of, how is matter created, and what are the chemical bonds that make life possible?

Whether you are new to chemistry, a student of the sciences, or just want to keep up with and understand the latest news and scientific debates, The Chemistry Book is for you.
