The book provides an exciting interwoven mosaic about the evolutionary nature of chemistry. It follows chemical evolution from the simplest elements formed in the Big Bang to the molecular diversity and complexity present today. Review chapters demonstrate the multidisciplinary use of chemical principles and techniques and how they are central to unraveling mysteries of the universe. In addition to giving concise and well-referenced reviews, the eminent authors include recent unpublished work. Instructors will find the book useful as a text or resource for teaching how chemistry has evolved over time and shaped our world. The first three sections review chemical evolution in astrophysics, in the Solar System and Earth, and in prebiotic chemistry. The fourth section describes how these themes can be incorporated into the curriculum. It seeks to expand and integrate new approaches to chemistry into majors and non-majors courses, and to inspire the creation of new courses at the college and high school levels. The book promotes our modern understanding of evolution and applications of chemistry, and will be appreciated by chemists, instructors and students of chemistry, and all others with an interest in the evolution of the universe in which we live.
