Tidsskrifter


Journal of Chemical Education.

J J. Lagowski, University of Texas, Austin (Editor).

Whether you are running a graduate research group or helping students with ideas for science fair projects, investigating the molecular structure of a new compound or developing an experiment for nonscience majors, teaching introductory chemistry or lecturing a graduate course in quantum mechanics, keeping current with chemistry is necessary for your professional success. As the "living textbook of chemistry," the Journal of Chemical Education offers a monthly one-stop source of information about the many rapidly developing areas of chemistry.

The contents of JCE are of vital interest to the education of practicing chemists as well as teaching chemists, because both groups need to learn about recent advances in chemistry. JCE not only helps subscribers stay abreast of the subject, but it also provides insight on how future chemists are being educated. It will help bridge the gap that has developed between the chemistry you learned while you were in school and the chemistry that is currently being taught.

Although written primarily for chemistry teachers, JCE has a large readership among industrial and other non-academic chemists.

From Caveman to Chemist: Circumstances and Achievements.

Hugh W. Salzberg.

Description

Tracing the oddities of the history of chemistry. Salzberg examines cultural and political influences on the ideas of chemists. He follows the evolution of chemistry from the Stone Age beginnings of ceramics and metallurgy, through the rise and decline of alchemy, to the culmination of classical chemistry in the late nineteenth century. Chapters one through nine lead from prehistoric technology, through ancient and medieval science to the study of chemicals and reactions that resulted in the sixteenth century birth of scientific chemistry. Chapters ten through fifteen focus on key chemists such as Sala, Boyle, Black, Lavoisier, Dalton, Berzelius, Laurent, and Arrhenius as they developed the ideas that led to classical chemistry and the concepts of molecules, chemical reactions, homology, valence, and molecular formulas and structures, among others. Twenty illustrations enhance the text. Also included are six timelines and two maps to help readers understand the influences of early history on chemistry.

Polymeric Materials: Chemistry for the Future.

Joseph Alper and Gordon L. Nelson.

Description

This highly readable volume opens with a discussion of the growth of the polymer industry over the past 50 years, including production and uses of polymers, and the polymer industry's positive contributions to the nation's balance of trade. The basics of polymers are also covered - what they are, how they are made, modified, and processed, how and why they were developed, and what factors account for their varied physical properties. The problems that accompany the widespread use of polymers are addressed through an examination of pollution, litter, landfill, overflow, and ocean pollutions. The volume looks to the future with a review of the ever-increasing number of industries that now use polymers. There is also a discussion of the global market for polymers and the trend toward internationalization of the polymer industry. The future of polymer science is addressed as it relates to education and technical training, collaborative research and development efforts among universities, corporations, and government, and policy considerations that affect these endeavors.
