After giving us the chemical elements that make up the entire universe in The Elements, his hugely popular photographic version of the Periodic Table, Theodore Gray here shows how combining those building blocks into molecules is where the real fun begins. Again using gorgeous photos and a winking sense of humor, Gray starts by explaining how atoms bond to form molecules and compounds, and the difference between organic and inorganic chemistry, before defining the molecules that make soaps and solvents, goops and oils, rocks and ores, ropes and fibers, painkillers and dangerous drugs, sweeteners, perfumes and stink bombs, colors and pigments, and controversial compounds like asbestos, CFCs, and thimerosal.
