Discover all the major elements of the periodic table, arranged in chapters according to their group, including alkaline earth metals, l...anthanides, and noble gases. Every important element - from hydrogen via carbon, oxygen, and gold to oganesson (that's element number 118) - is presented here. Each element is featured in its own catalogue-style entry, with a photo of the element in its raw state or in use; a caption explaining important information ranging from where it's found to its main uses; and a fact list presenting the key data, including the date of discovery and all atomic information as found on the periodic table. Plus there are stunning full-page photos showing elements as you have never seen them before - perhaps inside machinery that you can't normally delve into; or in stunning macro photography that reveals microscopic details invisible to the human eye. The style of the Pocket Eyewitness series is perfect for all children, from reluctant readers who can easily digest the key points through to budding Marie Curies and Louis Pasteurs who want to know more about the most essential particles on the planet.
