Soap Bubbles: Their Colors and Forces Which Mold Them - C.V. Boys
An excellent primer and the classic work on the topic of soap bubbles and films, this book employs simple experiments to establish a practical basis for the existence and function of surface tension and energy minimization. Dozens of experiments require nothing more than soap, straws, and bits of rubber, yet they impart profound and fundamental concepts relating to the science of fluids. Geared toward readers without much background in the subject, the book begins without difficult calculations

Solids and Surfaces: A Chemist's View of Bonding in Extended Structures - Roald Hoffmann
This unique book shows how chemistry and physics come together inthe solid state and on surfaces. Using a lively, graphic, descriptive approach, it teaches chemists the language that isnecessary to understand the electronic structure of extendedsystems. And, at the same time, it demonstrates how a chemical, frontier-orbital, approach to solid state and surface bonding andreactivity may be constructed.The book begins with the language of crystal orbitals, bandstructures and densities of states.

Study Guide and Solutions Manual to Accompany Organic Chemistry - T.W. Graham Solomons
On the cover of this book is a Pacific yew tree, found in the ancient forests of the Pacific Northwest. The bark of the Pacific yew tree produces Taxol, found to be a highly effective drug against ovarian and breast cancer. Taxol blocks mitosis during eukaryotic cell division. The supply of Taxol from the Pacific yew tree is vanishingly small, however. A single 100-year-old tree provides only about one dose of the drug (roughly 300 mg). For this reason, as well as the spectacular molecular

The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben - Joseph Borkin
During the International Crime Tribunals that followed the collapse of the Third Reich, a group of industrialists from I.G. Farben, Germany's great chemical combine, sat in the dock alongside the leaders of Nazi Germany. How these businessmen came to be tried for the most heinous of war crimes—including slavery and mass murder—is the subject of this harrowing expos
