Author: by Christopher Exley PhD FRSB
Join “Mr. Aluminum,” a scientist who has made the study of aluminum his life’s work, on a journey of discovery, reflection, and the science of aluminum. Professor Christopher Exley is a firm believer that science is only useful when it is properly communicated.
Scientific papers are difficult vehicles for the wider communication of science and thus he has always endeavored to tell the story of his scientific research as widely as possible through myriad blogs, presentations, and interviews. Through a series of easy-reading entries written for non-scientists, Exley will educate readers about his lifelong scientific passion: aluminum.
In scientific circles, aluminumin relation to human health specificallyhas gone the way of the dinosaurs (though, unlike dinosaurs, there has not yet been a popular revival!. Yet aluminum is also the greatest untold story of science. But why do we all need to know a little bit more about aluminum?
Do we need a self-help guide for living in what Exley has coined “The Aluminum Age”? What is it about aluminum that makes it different? What about iron, copper, or any of the so-called “heavy metals,” like mercury, cadmium, or lead?
