Summary
Napoleon's 1812 Russian campaign may have failed because cold temperatures caused his army's tin buttons to disintegrate. This is just one of the fascinating accounts of seventeen groups of molecules that have greatly influenced the course of history. These molecules provided the impetus for early exploration, and made possible the voyages of discovery that ensued. The molecules resulted in grand feats of engineering and spurred advances in medicine and law; they determined what we now eat, drink, and wear
