Although the first real unifying theory of chemistry was developed in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, the 20th century saw many advances in the field of chemistry as well. From its Asian and Arabic roots in mystical and spiritual alchemy, ancient medicine, metallurgy, and crafts to the recent decoding of the human genome and the creation of nanochips for computers, the field of chemistry has come a long way in scientific discovery.

Documenting great chemists and their achievements of the modern world, Chemistry: Decade by Decade provides an outline of advances in this exciting science field. Designed to complement science curricula, this illuminating volume is almost completely non-mathematical. It features solid, accessible information that is geared toward middle and high school students, teachers, and general readers alike. This volume is also enhanced with approximately 200 black-and-white photographs and line illustrations.
