This book focuses on the processes and materials behind energy technologies. The author details the underlying chemistry of renewable sources, such as biofuels and wind power, as well as the traditionally used coal and gas. Chapters on energy storage technologies and the connection between energy generation and climate change round off this uniquely concise overview of the relationship between chemistry and energy.
Explains how chemistry becomes energy.
A systematic approach to all major energy sources, from coal and gas to nuclear and "green" technologies.
