CHEMISTRY AND YOU

Author Name: C.P.Reghunadhan NAIR | Format: Paperback | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details

Chemistry is the science of matter. Anything that can be touched, tasted, smelled, seen or felt is made of chemicals. Chemists transform the everyday materials around us into amazing things. Some chemists work on cures for cold to cancer, while others monitor the ozone layer protecting us from the sun. Some cudgel their heads with thoughts of how chemical propulsion can be used to get out of the earth for happy settlement in other planets. Besides these researches, others discover new materials to make our homes warmer in the winter, or new textiles to be used in the latest fashions.

Chemistry and You introduces the fascinating world of chemistry in a way that one can understand and assimilate easily. It talks about the chemistry that established the present atmosphere; the chemistry that helped evolve our culture; that almost doubled the life expectancy of mankind by finding chemical solutions for fatal diseases; that removed famine and poverty by prompting agricultural revolutions through fertilizers, insecticides, etc. This book deals briefly with the relevance of polymers and their applications, especially in aerospace that made many dreams about space travel come true. Chemistry only answers man’s curiosity questions about diverse phenomena, materials, etc. around him.
