Interview by Sophie Roell at Five Books.

"The periodic table of the elements has been described as 'one of the great intellectual achievements of humankind'. Here, Noelle Eckley Selin of MIT and Henrik Selin of Boston University talk us through some of their favourite books about various chemical elements and explain why they're vital to understanding the world around us."
