About the Book

250 milestones in the history of chemistry.

The study of how molecules combine and react to form the material world, chemistry is known as the “central science” that connects scientific theory and applied science, non-living systems and living things, and all the sciences to one another.

No aspect of our lives is untouched by chemistry. The food, clothes, buildings, devices, and medicines that sustain us – and the weapons and pollution that threaten our survival – could only exist because of mankind's millennia-long quest to unravel nature's chemical mysteries.

Now, Easton Press is proud to present the fascinating illustrated guide to chemistry's evolution and defining achievements – The Chemistry Book, a grand Collector's Edition bound in leather and accented with 22kt gold.

Milestones of chemistry from the dawn of time to the 21st century.

Beginning with half-million-year-old crystal formations and the 4th century BC invention of bronze and soap, The Chemistry Book presents an accessible and authoritative introduction to this fundamental science through a chronological examination of 250 of its most intriguing and significant concepts, discoveries, application, and events.

Each of the 250 entries is covered in an engaging essay accompanied by a full-page illustration. And many of the book's illustrations are dazzling microscope photographs of molecules and reactions, images that reveal the hidden marvels of the chemical world.

Enlivened by fascinating anecdotes and facts, the essays explain the great theoretical breakthroughs and groundbreaking tools of chemistry, as well as the landmark medical advances, technological innovations, and life-changing inventions they produced. And The Chemistry Book looks at both the science's great triumphs -- such as the invention of penicillin – and its disasters, such as the use of chemical weapons.

Featuring cross-references between the entries that give the reader a greater sense of how the discoveries and breakthroughs relate to one another, The Chemistry Book is an excellent introduction to the diversity, reach, and importance of chemistry.
