Description - The Matter Factory by Peter Morris
From white coats to Bunsen burners, the laboratory is a controlled space of experimentation, research and invention. But how have the desired functions of the laboratory influenced the way it was constructed, laid out, equipped and operated? And how have developments in chemical practice or theory changed the laboratory and the way it is used? The Matter Factory offers a novel approach to the history of chemistry, showing how the development of the laboratory also helped to shape modern scientific practice.
