Elements and Atoms: Case Studies in the Development of Chemistry
by Carmen Giunta
Publisher: Le Moyne College 2014
My intention here is to collect several articles by scientists who contributed to the development of knowledge about atoms and elements, and to provide sufficient background and commentary to place the work of these pioneers in context. In addition, I attempt to teach about how science is done by examining the work of particular scientists in their own words and adding to their articles annotations designed to emphasize the researchers' methodology.

A general university chemistry textbook, it provides an overview of chemistry for nonspecialists and a foundation for later study for chemistry majors. The text introduces different areas of chemistry: inorganic, nuclear, organic, and biochemistry.

Success in studying Chemistry depends upon the familiarity of students with a few basic ideas, conventions, and methods upon which later studies are built. This small book presents these basic ideas, conventions and methods in chemistry.
