  • Opens up a whole new world of the great impact that chemicals have on anything in every-day life.
  • Focuses on understanding how the material world works in terms of chemicals.
  • Contrary to the competition this book equally treats both inorganic and organic chemistry.
  • Also for college non-major chemical courses and as supplementary reading for major chemistry students.

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.
