If you understand chemistry (theory), you can see chemistry (risk)!

Professor/walking chemistry encyclopedia Kim Min-Kyung’s story of chemistry

Issues and accidents caused by chemicals happen one after another in Korea, from humidifier sterilizers that led to heavy casualties, to pesticides found in eggs, and sanitary pads and mattresses containing carcinogens and radon… Terms such as “controversial,” “toxic chemicals,” and “detected” appear every day on internet portals and in newspapers, and parents struggle to choose the right products for their children. We live extremely close to chemicals throughout the day, from when we wake up in the morning to wash our faces and brush our teeth, until we go to bed at night. Chemicals are absolutely necessary in our lives, but how should we treat them if they can be a danger? 

Chemist in My House is an essay-like book offering a friendly explanation about chemistry, which might ordinarily sound too complicated to understand. The book was inspired from the author’s lectures for humanities students, “Chemistry in Everyday Life”, at Hanyang University. She has become popular on social media as a “walking chemistry encyclopedia” and was selected by students as the “best teacher” every single year thanks to her outstanding teaching skills. 

How should we approach people who don’t like or know well about chemistry and help them understand better? The answer is simple. We can explain the principles by using everyday chemicals as examples. All readers, including you, can live a safer life by becoming “the chemist in my house” through this book, while broadening your knowledge of chemistry, including neutralization reactions, osmosis, and global warming (climate change).
