Core Chemistry

No science is more at the core of every technology that supports the seven billion people living on the planet today than chemistry. Chemistry is at the base of the foods, medicines, fuels and materials that are the hallmarks of modern life. Core Chemistry presents how each branch of chemistry - physical chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry - evolved from a clear understanding of the principles and laws of chemical interactions.
