Chemicals for Life and Living, Hardback Book

Chemicals for Life and Living Hardback


Chemicals often have a negative Image among the general public.

But there is no material world or indeed human beings without chemicals.

The material world is operated by chemicals. The title `Chemicals for Life and Living' implies that the material world is staged and played by chemicals.

The book consists of five parts and an appendix. Part 1 - Essentials for life; Part 2 - Enhancing health; Part 3 - For the fun of life; Part 4 - Chemistry of the universe and earth, and Part 5 - Some negative effects of chemicals.

The appendix gives a brief summary of what chemistry is all about, including a short chapter of chemical principles.

No quantitative calculations are included in this book so that it is appealing for everyone - not just chemists.
