Experts agree that the nation would benefit if more young people "turned on" to the sciences. This book is designed as a tool to do just that. It is based on Opportunities in Chemistry, a National Research Council publication that incorporated the contributions of 350 researchers working at the frontiers of the field. Chemistry educators Janice A. Coonrod and the late George C. Pimentel revised the material to capture the interest of today's student.
A broad and highly readable survey, the volume explores:
The book concludes with a discussion of chemistry's role in society's risk-benefit decisions and a review of career and educational opportunities.
