What this book aims to do is to present a selection of some of the things that a chemist today may find her or himself engaged in studying. If by doing so it succeeds in demonstrating simply that the new chemistry is no longer a matter of test tubes and bad smells (although both may be encountered along the way), that is fine enough. For this demonstration we will need to take a cursory glance not only at some of the basic principles of chemistry but also at a pot-pourri of ideas from disciplines as diverse as genetics, climatology, electronics and the study of chaos.

Winner of the 1994 Award for Best Professional/Scholarly Book in Chemistry, Association of American Publishers "In this very readable and enjoyable book, Ball [offers] a whirlwind guided tour through some of the most exciting topics in modern chemistry, molecular physics, and materials science... Lucidly written ... with an acute awareness of recent advances and an excellent understanding of their intrinsic scientific content."--Physics World "A tour de force of popular science writing."--John Postgate, The Times Literary Supplement "This book is like a clean fresh breeze, and puts the image of chemistry back into proper perspective... [It] should be used ... to help convey to students ... enthusiasm for modern research."--Rudolph Fahnenstich, Angewandte Chemie "It covers almost every possible recent development in chemistry in just the right amount of detail... The old disciplines of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry of the stuffy textbooks are ploughed over and a new patchwork of fields created to fill their place."--David Bradley, New Scientist
