This new edition has been fully updated and now features full-colour throughout. It contains a section on special topics such as environmental chemistry, forensic chemistry and nuclear and radiochemistry and also includes two new chapters on 'chemistry saving lives' and the hydrogen economy. A companion website provides additional material and enables students to watch experiments.
