Molecules: A Very Short Introduction

Philip Ball

Very Short Introductions

  • Popular science writing at its very best
  • Takes newcomers to the subject all the way up to current research in new areas of chemistry
  • A non-traditional approach to chemistry, focusing on what chemistry might become during this century, rather than a survey of its past
  • Concentrates on molecules in living systems, and on how synthetic chemistry often takes its inspiration from organic molecules
