Summary:
In Chasing Molecules, investigative journalist Elizabeth Grossman opens the door on a new world of chemistry-green chemistry - and the scientists who are unearthing the field's potential to transform manufacturing with unprecedented benefits to the corporate bottom line and our health. She finds that a revolution is brewing, and its rallying call is "benign by design." These scientists are creating new, non-toxic  Read more...
