In twelve illustrated chapters, the book makes sense of the patterns and groups within the periodic table, introducing each of the 118 known elements individually and exploring questions including:- Why did the history of fizzy water give early chemistry a sparkle?- How did hydrogen reveal the structure of the atom?- What was the Bunsen burner's role in discovering new elements?- Which of the alkaline earth metals accounts for a kilogramme of your weight?- Why is Marie Curie such a scientific star?- How do tungsten and vanadium explain the secret of super-sharp Syrian swords?- Who discovered the most elements in the periodic table?- What made nihonium, element 113, such a wonderful new year's gift for Japan?- Is glass a liquid or a solid?- How did nitrogen fulfill the alchemists' dream?- Would you have smeared antimony on your face if you'd lived in ancient Egypt?- Why might naked mole rats have clues for surviving a heart attack?- How did the Haya people of Tanzania make steel 1500 years ago?- What makes xenon a great anaesthetic - and why can't all patients use it?- Might there be a pattern in yet undiscovered elements beyond number 118? A really well-researched handy-sized little book, packed full of information about the elements, presented in a fun and easy-to-read way. pp. 320 BK0002
