Why did Gandhi hate iodine I 53 Why did the Japanese kill Godzilla with missiles made of cadmium Cd 48 How did radium Ra 88 nearly ruin Marie Curie's reputation And why did tellurium Te 52 lead to the most bizarre gold rush in historyThe periodic table is one of our crowning scientific achievements but it's also a treasur. My GR friend Jason writes sturdy and trustworthy reviews but I must take exception with him here The Disappearing Spoon is uick light reading out in the sun It handles complex theory in a comfortable approachable wayYes it is all that IF such stuff as this makes sense to you The strongest solo acid is still the boron based carborane HCB11C111 And this boron acid has the best punchline so far it's simultaneously the world's strongest and gentlest acid To wrap your head around that remember that acids split into positive and negative parts In carborane's case you get H and an elaborate cagelike structure formed by everything else CB11C111 With most acids it's the negative portion that's corrosive and caustic and eats through the skin But the boron cage forms one of the most stable molecules ever invented Its boron atoms share electrons so generously that it practically becomes helium and it won't go around ripping electrons from other atoms the usual cause of acidic carnageWell this could be part of the rules of uidditch for all the sense it makes to poor general reader me so I think The Disappearing Spoon is really for science geeks who think stuff about German chemists being hornswoggled out of a Nobel Prize for Alchemy by some Californian sharpies in 1951 or a neat account of the crucial properties of the biomolecule which are called handedness is the very thing for those moments on the beach when there isn't any eye candy around
