Chemistry isn't just microscopic atoms doing mysterious and inscrutable things: we rely on it for bread-making, vegetable growing and producing the everyday materials of daily life. Using stunning images and illuminating text, this book captures chemistry as it unfolds - through the use of techniques such as microphotography, time-lapse photography and infrared thermal imaging.

See how chemistry underpins the formation of snowflakes, the science of champagne, the colours of flowers and many other wonders of nature and technology as art, wonder and science meet in this extraordinary book.
