This popular science book shows that chemists do have a sense of humor, and this book is a celebration of the quirky side of scientific nomenclature.
Here, some molecules are shown that have unusual, rude, ridiculous or downright silly names.
Written in an easy-to-read style, anyone - not just scientists - can appreciate the content.
Each molecule is illustrated with a photograph and/or image that relates directly or indirectly to its name and molecular structure.
Thus, the book is not only entertaining, but also educational.
