Descriere RO

Back cover: The Periodic Table of Poems is a collection of 93 short poems written to celebrate the chemical elements that make up our Universe. Each poem explores the properties of a different element and is accompanied by a set of explanatory notes.

"Peter Davern's new book is full of delightful poems about many of the chemical elements that inhabit the periodic table. In addition the accompanying text makes meaningful references to the properties of the elements and their compounds and will be of interest to chemistry students as well as their instructors." - Dr. Eric Scerri, UCLA and author of "The Periodic Table, Its Story and Its Significance"

Note from the author, Peter Davern: "I've long been fascinated by the periodic table of the elements but have always had difficulty recalling just some of the properties of even the more well-known elements. So, to help me remember some of their more prominent properties (and occasionally some of their more quirky ones), I decided to compose a short poem for each of the naturally-occurring elements up to and including element 92, uranium, followed by one additional poem to cover the transuranium elements. The 'running order' for the collection reflects the normal sequence of the elements as they appear on the periodic table - starting with hydrogen, then helium, lithium, beryllium and so on. I hope you find the poems of some use."
