The demonstrations capture interest, teach, inform, fascinate, amaze, and perhaps, most importantly, involve students in chemistry. Nowhere else will you find books that answer, "How come it happens? . . . Is it safe? . . . What do I do with all the stuff when the demo is over?" Shakhashiri and his collaborators offer 282 chemical demonstrations arranged in 11 chapters. Each demonstration includes seven sections: a brief summary, a materials list, a step-by-step account of procedures to be used, an explanation of the hazards involved, information on how to store or dispose of the chemicals used, a discussion of the phenomena displayed and principles illustrated by the demonstration, and a list of references. You'll find safety emphasized throughout the book in each demonstration.

This “engrossing study” of invisible ink reveals 2,000 years of scoundrels, heroes and their ingenious methods for concealing messages (Kirkus). In Prisoners, Lovers, and Spies, Kristie Macrakis uncovers the secret history of invisible ink and the ingenious way everything from lemon juice to Gall-nut extract and even certain bodily fluids have been used to conceal and reveal covert communications. From Ancient Rome to the Cold War, spies have been imprisoned or murdered, adultery unmasked, and battles lost because of faulty or intercepted secret messages. Yet, successfully hidden writing has helped save lives, win battles, and ensure privacy—at times changing the course of history. Macrakis combines a storyteller’s sense of drama with a historian’s respect for evidence in this page-turning history of intrigue and espionage, love and war, magic and secrecy. From Ovid’s advice to use milk for illicit love notes, to John Gerard's dramatic escape from the Tower of London aided by orange juice ink messages, to al-Qaeda’s hidden instructions in pornographic movies, this book charts the evolution of secret messages and their impact on history. An appendix includes kitchen chemistry recipes for readers to try out at home.

An innovative scientist, George Olah is truly one of akind, whose amazing research into extremely strong acids and theirnew chemistry yielded what is now commonly known as superacidic"magic acid chemistry." A Life of Magic Chemistry is an intimate look atthe many journeys that George Olah has traveled-from his earlyresearch and teaching in Hungary, to his move to North Americawhere, during his years in industry, he continued his study of theelusive cations of carbon, to his return to academia in Cleveland,and, finally, his move to Los Angeles, where he built the LokerHydrocarbon Research Institute to find new solutions to the graveproblem of the world's diminishing natural oil and gas resourcesand to mitigate global warming by recycling carbon dioxide intohydrocarbon fuels and products. Professor Olah invites the readerto enjoy the story of his remarkable path-marked by hard work,imagination, and never-ending quests for discovery-which eventuallyled to the Nobel Prize. Intertwining his research and teaching witha unique personal writing style truly makes A Life of MagicChemistry an engaging read.
