    One thought on “Atkins' Molecules”

    1. Molecules by P.W.Atkins is a surprisingly detailed yet accessible overview of the molecules which are important in our lives. Atkins lays out 160 molecules in these pages, divided into various categories from simple substances such as water to the complicated molecules in lipids, senses and other drugs and hormones. Each molecule is accompanied with an expanded sphere image, as well as a skeletal model for more complex organic molecules. Some education in chemical principles will help in underst [...]

    2. An excellent book for understanding the most important molecules that surround us. Recommended to everyone, even if not interested in the field. One starts to perceive chemistry in a different way.
