Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521828732, Hardcover)

The University of Cambridge's 1702 chair of chemistry is the oldest continuously occupied chair of chemistry in Britain. This book's descriptions of the lives and work of the 1702 chairholders over the past three hundred years paint a vivid picture of chemistry being slowly transformed from alchemy into a major academic discipline. Containing personal memoirs and historical essays by acknowledged experts, this book will engage all readers interested in the pivotal role chemistry has played in the making of the modern world.
