The private life of atoms

Peter Atkins

  • Crisp and clear treatment of a central topic of science - chemical reactions - with full colour integrated images throughout
  • Fascinating and novel approach using a design in which the text and chemical images are linked together
  • Presents the most effective static 2-dimensional representation and explanation of many dynamic chemical processes
  • Outlines the chemist's 'tool kit' of reactions and looks at how these are linked together to create complex molecular forms
