Atkins' molecules (2nd ed)

See all formats and editions

This is a brand new edition of the book that was called 'the most beautiful chemistry book ever written'.

In it, we see the molecules responsible for the experiences of our everyday life - including fabrics, drugs, plastics, explosives, detergents, fragrances, tastes, and sex.

With engaging prose Peter Atkins gives a non-technical account of an incredible range of aspects of the world around us, showing unexpected connections, and giving an insight into how this amazing world can be understood in terms of the atoms and molecules from which it is built.

The new edition has dozens of new molecules, a completely new graphical presentation, and an even more accessible and enthralling account of the molecules themselves.
