About this book

Language: German

In Moleküle: Die Elemente und die Architektur aller Dinge Gray goes beyond the 118 elements in the periodic table to explore, through fascinating stories and stunning photographic imagery, what he considers to be the most essential and interesting of the millions of possible chemical bonds. At the beginning of Molecules Gray explains what molecules and compounds are, what holds them together and how they form bonds, the difference between ionic and covalent bonds, how molecules get their names and what their scientific names mean and the difference between organic and inorganic compounds.

Moleküle: Die Elemente und die Architektur aller Dinge is then divided into chapters including Rocks, Minerals and Crystals; Ores; Plastics and Rubbers; Ropes, Yarns and Filaments; Edible Compounds; Perfumes, Stink Bombs and Other Aromatic Substances; Pigments and Paints; Goops and Oils; Soaps and Solvents; Medicines: Biblical Compounds (ie. frankincense, myrrh, and pitch); Compounds that Go "Bang;" and Nasty Compounds You Don't Want to Meet.

Originally published in English as Molecules: The Elements and the Architecture of Everything

Summary in German:
Moleküle verbindet eine atemberaubende Bildsprache mit leicht verständlicher Wissenschaft. Es erläutert, was Moleküle sind, wie sie Verbindungen eingehen, was diese zusammenhält, worin der Unterschiede zwischen organischen und anorganischen Verbindungen liegt und vieles, vieles mehr …

Statt trockener Naturwissenschaft versteht es Theodore Gray wieder einmal mit verblüffenden Fakten und überraschenden Beispielen aus dem Alltag einen faszinierenden Einblick in die wunderbare Welt der Elemente zu geben.
