Elements and Atoms: Case Studies in the Development of Chemistry
by Carmen Giunta
Publisher: Le Moyne College 2014
Number of pages: 364
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.

This book is about fundamental concepts that any chemistry student should not only be aware of but proficient at. It deals with the states of matter, the mole, the shapes of molecules, the elements and their properties in the periodic table, etc.

This book is an attempt to outline as briefly and succinctly as possible the historical development of chemistry. It is presumed that the reader is acquiring, or already possesses, a fair knowledge of present-day chemical theory and practice.
