Overview

Our world is determined by chemistry. Every object we encounter in our daily lives is a product of a chemical reaction, natural or man-made. This exciting book goes behind the scenes of day-to-day chemistry and digs deeply into the hearts of the atoms that govern chemical processes. It explores the reactions between atoms and shows how the characteristics of the reacting atoms determine the type of molecules produced. The book also probes the fascinating chemistry of simple substances such as salt and water. In clear language, it shows how the interactions between the two molecules are crucial to life on Earth and how those interactions are predestined by the atoms that make up the molecules.
