Chemicals are everywhere, and some are deadly – they can burn flesh, choke us or even blast us to bits. This book shows how chemists through the ages risked their lives with poison gases, lethal liquids and dangerous reactions. Read how they tried to turn ordinary metals into gold, how urine was made into a glow-in-the-dark explosive, and how chemistry can catch murderers.
