The Chemical Element: A Historical Perspective


The volume covers:
- The idea of the elements held by Aristotle and the other ancient Greek philosophers
- How Chinese, Arabic and other ancient civilizations thought about the elements
- Mendeleyev and the creation of the Periodic Table of Elements, the predictive power of which helped in the discovery of dozens of new elements
- The discovery of the "artificial" elements that are heavier than uranium

Jargon and mathematics is kept to a minimum, and the volumes includes a timeline, a glossary, and a bibliography, making The Chemical Element an ideal resource for students researching chemistry and the history and nature of the scientific understanding of the world around us.
