1998. Albert Stwertka. The chemical elements and the basic principles of chemistry are the foundations of all scientific study, but this is the first book devoted to making information about the elements easily available and understandable. A Guide to the Elements begins with an introductory section that explains some of the basic concepts of chemistry and traces the history and development of the periodic table of the elements. In clear, non-technical language, using historical anecdotes and everyday examples, the author makes complex ideas and terms easily understandable. Each of the 112 elements is discussed in a separate article accompanied by photographs-many in full color-of practical applications of the elements. 238 pages, soft cover, color and b&w photographs.
