Cambridge University Press, Nov 16, 2000 - Science - 493 pages
The New Chemistry is a unique and fascinating book - a showcase for modern chemistry. It highlights the most important developments in chemistry over the past 30 years, covering the latest research trends in a wide range of fields, both theoretical and experimental. The book consists of 17 self-contained chapters, each covering a different topic in chemistry, ranging from the discovery of new elements and synthetic techniques to the design of drugs and materials, and each written by one of the world's leading chemists in that particular field. It includes contributions from several Nobel Prize winners and is copiously illustrated with photographs and explanatory diagrams. Written in a lively and accessible style, this book will be of interest to scientists of all disciplines and will be useful as a reference text for anyone wanting to know more about modern chemistry.
