Overview

Become acquainted with the wonderful world of atoms and molecules. The Smart Guide to Chemistry is written for readers who have no previous exposure to chemistry, although if you have taken a chemistry course or two, you should find this book to be a good review of the subject. The amount of mathematics is kept to a minimum. It should be sufficient if you can handle the fundamentals of arithmetic and algebra. You can also feel free to skip the mathematics and should be able to do so without losing the thread of the remaining material. Topics covered include those that would be expected from an elementary introduction to chemistry: • Elements, compounds, and mixtures • Names and formulas of chemical compounds • Chemical reactions • The periodic table of the elements • Nuclear processes • Acids, bases, and salts • Chemical bonding • Environmental chemistry • Organic and biochemistry. The human side of chemistry is interwoven throughout The Smart Guide to Chemistry. The contributions of famous chemists are highlighted, along with interesting anecdotal information from their lives. The Smart Guide to Chemistry is lavishly illustrated with photographs and other graphics that are intended to assist readers who like to see examples of what they are reading about. You should find The Smart Guide to Chemistry to be unique in its approach to the subject of chemistry. It can be read through from cover-to-cover or used as a handy reference to look up information about individual topics.
