a hundred Chemical Myths offers with renowned but mostly unfaithful misconceptions and misunderstandings with regards to chemistry. It includes lucid and concise reasons lower via fallacies and concrete legends which are universally appropriate to an international viewers. a variety of chemical myths are explored in those components; nutrients, medicinal drugs, catastrophes, chemical substances, and environmental difficulties. Connections to pop culture, literature, video clips, and cultural heritage carry the reader’s curiosity while key techniques are superbly annotated with illustrations to facilitate the knowledge of surprising fabric. Chemical Myths Demystified is pitched to participants and not using a formal chemistry history to fledgling undergraduate chemists to pro researchers and beyond.
