This book covers the chemistry of the non-metallic elements (the halogens, boron, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, silicon, phosphorus and sulfur) and uses their role in agriculture (for example, nitrogen and sulfur), industry (for example, sulfuric acid), and everyday life (for example, the chlorination of drinking water) to illustrate this chemistry. Their role in organic chemistry and biochemistry is also emphasized. Two interactive CD-ROMs accompany the book, incorporating electronic questions that facilitate revision/consolidation. This book is part of The Molecular World series which aims to provide a broad foundation in chemistry.
