Summary

Praise for the previous edition:

"...clear and detailed...informative...comprehensive...will be [a] useful addition to most libraries."—School Library Journal

Acids and bases are essential components of the natural world that play key roles in medicine and industry. They are used in the manufacturing of everyday items such as carbonated soft drinks, salad dressing, kitchen and bathroom cleaners, and fertilizers. But these compounds can also serve a dramatic function, such as in the sulfuric acid clouds of Venus and in grave wax, a basic substance in soil that mummifies animal and human bodies. The informative Acids and Bases, Second Edition takes a closer look at these fascinating, yet contrasting, substances, giving concrete, real-world examples with numerous colorful illustrations.
