From the PublisherHave you ever wondered what the smelliest chemical might be? Or what the strongest acid is? Or the sweetest chemical subsctance ever made? A reliable guidebook answering such questions and indeed presenting us with all manner of superlatives and world records in chemistry would clearly be a useful resource. ... Because the range of topics covered by the book is so broad and fascinating, I think all chemists will enjoy reading it. It would certainly make a very acceptable gift to any aspiring or established chemist and could well come in handy for those seeking anecdotal or amusing metrial for lecturers or other presentations. This is one of the few works that can be said to deserve a place in every chemical library.
(Chemistry in Britain)
"This is an indispensable book, full of entertaining entries, and with an invaluable perpetual calendar at the end, where there is at least one 'chemical' entry for every day of the year. ... It is excellent to dip into, and entertaining written so that one thing leads to another. The reader is thus drawn in to all sorts of recondite matters, and everyone is bound to learn something." AMBIX
World Records in Chemistry is a profoundly frivolous ides, which has been turned into a fascinating and highly entertaining book.
