Description

Chemistry is about the many different kinds of materials we see around us and use every day. It is about what they are made of and how they are made.

This book introduces chemistry to beginners. It does this “progressively”, that is, the presentation moves logically from experimental observations to theory. No new ideas are introduced without first giving their experimental basis.

About the author

The author is a retired lecturer in chemistry at the University of Hull, England. His research interest is in the fundamental ideas of chemistry.
