Download E-books Crucibles: The Story of Chemistry from Ancient Alchemy to Nuclear Fission PDF

By Bernard Jaffe

This booklet is a vintage within the box of renowned technological know-how. common studying because the Nineteen Thirties, it really is one of many few historeis of chemistry to be aware of the lives of the nice chemists. via those dramatic and human tales, it offers an authoritative and pleasing account of the good discoveries and advances during this clinical box. After many printings in 3 earlier variants, this publication has been newly revised via the writer for this fourth edition.
Beginning with Trevisan and his lifelong look for the "philosopher's stone," the writer narrates the lives and discoveries of such towering figures as Paracelsus and his chemical therapy of ailment; Priestley searching for phlogiston and discovering oxygen and carbon dioxide, Lavoisier making a new language of chemistry; Dalton and his Atomic thought; Avogadro and the assumption of molecules, Mendeleeff arranging the desk of components lower than his Periodic legislations; the Curies separating radium; Thomson learning the electron; Moseley and his legislations of Atomic Numbers; Lawrence and the development of the cyclotron; and extra. essentially the most dramatic bankruptcy within the ebook, the account of the advance of nuclear fission, ends the tale of chemistry at its so much enormous fulfillment. a last bankruptcy discusses a number of the effects of nuclear fission, the invention of nuclear fusion, and the new paintings with subatomic particles.
Bernard Jaffe is the writer of many different technological know-how books and a number of other technological know-how textbooks. Upon the unique book of this ebook, Mr. Jaffe obtained the Francis Bacon Award for the Humanizing of information. the yankee Chemical Society's background of Chemistry department commemorated him in 1973 with its Dexter Award for "distinguished success within the background of chemistry."
