Acids and Bases (Essential Chemistry Series)by James A. Corrick, Kristi Lew
Acids and bases are essential components of the natural world that play key roles in medicine and industry. They are used in the manufacturing of such everyday items as carbonated soft drinks, salad dressings, kitchen and bathroom cleaners, and fertilizers.

Acids and Bases uses concrete, real-world examples and colorful illustrations to take a closer look at these fascinating substances.
