Molecules : the elements and the architecture of everything / Theodore Gray ; photographs by Nick Mann.

Gray, Theodore W., (author.). Mann, Nick, (photographer.).


"Everything physical is made up of the elements and the infinite variety of molecules they form when they combine with each other. In Molecules, Theodore Gray takes the next step in the grand story that began with the periodic table in his ... book, The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe. Here, he explores through fascinating stories and trademark stunning photography the most interesting, essential, useful, and beautiful of the millions of chemical structures that make up every material in the world."-- From the publisher.
