This text addresses economic and management lessons to be learned from the chemical industry and emphasizes the importance of the chemical industry to the development of any industrial nation. It examines: the role of science, technology and industry organization in fostering innovation and profit; explores the role of macroeconomics policies, legal and financial institutions, and corporate finance in affecting the behaviour of firms; and details the responses of the chemical industry to various historical and geographical changes
Bill Nye the science guy by Disney Educational Productions( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do fireworks, a fried egg, and a rusting truck have in common? They all involve chemical reactions. This program illustrates the mechanics of chemical reactions in five sections: Chemical Reactions (reactants and products, state changes, diatomic elements and molecules, Law of Conservation of Mass); Chemical Bonding (Octet Rule, ionic and covalent bonds); Types of Chemical Reactions (synthesis and decomposition reactions, single and double displacement reactions, acid/base reactions, exothermic and endothermic reactions); Reaction Rates (moles, kinetic energy, solutes and solvents, catalysts, activators and inhibitors, enzymes); and Reactions All Around Us (photosynthesis and chemosynthesis, autotrophs and photoautotrophs, bioluminescence)

Chymists and chymistry : studies in the history of alchemy and early modern chemistry by International Conference on the History of Alchemy and Chymistry( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together papers presented at an international conference at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in 2006 by over twenty eminent researchers. The collection features work on the perennial issues of symbolism, textual exegesis, transmutation and the danger of fraud, as well as treatments of the intersections of alchemy with fine art, theology, archaeology, and gender. Chymists and Chymistry offers readers a wealth of new scholarship on this intriguing topic and glimpses of the exciting frontiers in chymistry waiting to be explored.--Publisher
Transmutations--alchemy in art : selected works from the Eddleman and Fisher collections at the Chemical Heritage Foundation by Lawrence Michael Principe( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alchemy made important contributions to the development of modern science while firing popular imagination so strongly that portrayals of the alchemist at work pervaded the arts. The more celebrated goals of alchemy, like transmutation of base metals into gold, still tease and tantalize. This book offers a thoughtful look at the role of the alchemist in the 17th and 18th centuries, as depicted in a selection of paintings from the Eddleman and Fisher Collections housed at the Chemical Heritage Foundation
A festival of chemistry entertainments( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, a part of the American Chemical Society's Symposium Series, is a collection of some delightful bits of whimsy and humor, both intentional and accidental, from the world of chemistry. Underneath those famous white lab coats clearly beat hearts that are capable of finding and enjoying the lighter side of their science. From chemistry-based crossword puzzles to papers delivered in verse and song, this is a surprising collection of the quirkiest incidents and episodes in the recent history of chemistry. Topics include Ken Reese's back-page column of Chemical and Engineering News, the music that accompanied the papers of physicist Howard Shapiro, and the hidden whimsy found in the supposedly somber records of the Chemical Abstracts Service
