Peter Atkins

What is Chemistry?

Hay Festival 2014 , 

A wonderfully accessible introduction to chemistry’s central concepts that shows how it contributes not only towards our material comfort, but also to human culture. Atkins shows how chemistry provides the infrastructure of our world, through the chemical industry, the fuels of heating, power generation and transport, as well as the fabrics of our clothing and furnishings.
