Read online The Same and Not the Same.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Same and Not the Same Positioned at the crossroads of the physical and biological sciences chemistry deals with neither the infinitely small nor the infinitely large nor directly with life So it is sometimes thought of as dull the way things in the middle often are But this middle ground is precisely where human beings exist As Hoffmann shows in his inspired prose the world observed at its molecular level is complex and agitated as are the emotions of the supposedly dispassionate scientists who explore it In The Same and Not the Same the vital tensions of chemistry are revealed with down to earth explanations Hoffmann uncovers the polarities that power rend and reform the world of molecules When we wash an apple before eating it we are thinking not merely of the dirt that may still be on it but of the pesticides used in agricultural production When we take medication we expect relief for our pain but also fear side effects The Same and Not the Same shows this ambivalence to be only one of a number of dualities pervading the world of molecules The theme of identity reflected in the title of the book is central to the story Other dualities from stasis and dynamics to creation and discovery to the rich complexity of revealing and concealing are lucidly delineated for nonscientist and scientist alike The Same and Not the Same also offers a rare and compelling personal statement of the social responsibility of scientists Unabashedly confronting some of the major ethical controversies in chemistry today the book strives for balance in facing the pressing ecological and environmental concerns of our time by Roald Hoffman

No description available, Could it be magic Chemical experiments are not only essential for teaching chemistry they also fascinate the audience This book is an excellent source of inspiration for every magic show and classroom demonstration In a very playful manner the experiments described here open up the manifold colourful and sometimes ear splitting world of chemistry Ranging from unusual but useful properties of matter to the illustration of the greenhouse effect this masterful chemist s cookbook is highly suitable for preparing demonstrations in front of larger audiences Building a bridge between science and the arts every experiment is introduced by inspiring citations from prose and poetry which makes reading and experimenting equally enjoyable br The remarkable achievement of Herbert Roesky s and Klaus MOckel s book is the linkage it achieves between the world of the human spirit expressed in literature and historical continuity and the art of chemical demonstration One expects Goethe to move freely in the pages of Chemical Couriosities but Whitman Nietzsche Thomas Mann Salvador Dali Montaigne and the Prophet Jeremiah The chemical and literary strands of this book are so ably intertwined Roald Hoffmann br, No description available, La acci n de Ox geno va y viene entre y Este ltimo a o es el del Centenario del Premio Nobel cuando la Fundaci n Nobel decide otorgar por primera vez la presea Nobel Retrospectivo para conmemorar los grandes descubrimientos que precedieron el establecimiento de los premios cien a os antes Una obra de teatro elogiada por cient ficos y literatos
