The Chemical Element: Chemistry’s Contribution to Our Global Future by Javier Garcia-Martinez and Elena Serrano-Torregrosa is reviewed on behalf of UNESCO by Julia Hasler, International Scientific Development and Cooperation, UK.
She says: “The book makes for fascinating reading and is highly recommended not only to the chemistry community but to a wide readership including individuals concerned with sustainable development, politicians, young people, teachers, and global strategists. It is a must for every chemistry educator who can use it as a tool in teaching students or in informing non-scientists about the possibilities of this fundamental science. This book is an excellent antidote to criticism of the relevance and usefulness of chemistry for sustainable development.”
