Organic compounds are ubiquitous in nature. They are present in food, commercial products, domestic materials, and all the cells of the human body. The realization that the chemistry of organic compounds permeates all life forms, often stimulates the desire of many students to pursue studies in medical- and natural-chemistry-related fields. In my own case, although I had always been fascinated by chemistry in general, I only opted to study it at a higher level by default. This is beacuse prior to my university education, I barely understood its various concepts. But this changed dramatically when at university, I was lucky enough to be taught by some very inspirational, experienced and internationally-acclaimed chemistry teachers, who actually lived the subject. Interestingly, even then, there were only a few relevant, user-friendly textbooks on the subject. As I have discovered over the years, organic chemistry is so broad and covers so much that for effective delivery, not only must those who teach the subject constantly adopt innovative methods of teaching, there must also be readily-available and easy-to-read textbooks. Because of the apparent complexity of the subject, organic chemistry teachers must always aim to instill a love of learning for it, by imparting knowledge in ways that can be motivating and exciting. When students have access to relevant, user-friendly textbooks and lessons are made interactive, simple, clear and exciting, rather than dominated by learning by rote, organic chemistry can be both interesting and easy-to-understand. This book is an attempt to contribute to the growing body of knowledge that aims to stimulate students’ interest, and love for the wonderful world of organic chemistry. The intention is to equip students with the basic concepts, so they can refrain from simply memorizing, but rather seek to understand and not be intimidated by it.

Developing microscale chemistry experiments, using small quantities of chemicals and simple equipment, has been a recent initiative in the UK. Microscale chemistry experiments have several advantages over conventional experiments: They use small quantities of chemicals and simple equipment which reduces costs; The disposal of chemicals is easier due to the small quantities; Safety hazards are often reduced and many experiments can be done quickly; Using plastic apparatus means glassware breakages are minimised; Practical work is possible outside a laboratory. Microscale Chemistry is a book of such experiments designed for use in schools and colleges, and the ideas behind the experiments in it come from many sources, including chemistry teachers from all around the world. Current trends indicate that with the likelihood of further environmental legislation, the need for microscale chemistry teaching techniques and experiments is likely to grow. This book should serve as a guide in this process.

From Chemical Philosophy to Theoretical Chemistry

How did chemistry and physics acquire their separate identities, and are they on their way to losing them again? Mary Jo Nye has written a graceful account of the historical demarcation of chemistry from physics and subsequent reconvergences of the two, from Lavoisier and Dalton in the late eighteenth century to Robinson, Ingold, and Pauling in the mid-twentieth century. Using the notion of a disciplinary "identity" analogous to ethnic or national identity, Nye develops a theory of the nature of disciplinary structure and change. She discusses the distinctive character of chemical language and theories and the role of national styles and traditions in building a scientific discipline. Anyone interested in the history of scientific thought will enjoy pondering with her the question of whether chemists of the mid-twentieth century suspected chemical explanation had been reduced to physical laws, just as Newtonian mechanical philosophers had envisioned in the eighteenth century.

Provides an in-depth study of organic compounds that bridges the gap between general and organic chemistry Organic Chemistry: Concepts and Applications presents a comprehensive review of organic compounds that is appropriate for a two-semester sophomore organic chemistry course. The text covers the fundamental concepts needed to understand organic chemistry and clearly shows how to apply the concepts of organic chemistry to problem-solving. In addition, the book highlights the relevance of organic chemistry to the environment, industry, and biological and medical sciences. The author includes multiple-choice questions similar to aptitude exams for professional schools, including the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and Dental Aptitude Test (DAT) to help in the preparation for these important exams. Rather than categorize content information by functional groups, which often stresses memorization, this textbook instead divides the information into reaction types. This approach bridges the gap between general and organic chemistry and helps students develop a better understanding of the material. A manual of possible solutions for chapter problems for instructors and students is available in the supplementary websites. This important book: • Provides an in-depth study of organic compounds with division by reaction types that bridges the gap between general and organic chemistry • Covers the concepts needed to understand organic chemistry and teaches how to apply them for problem-solving • Puts a focus on the relevance of organic chemistry to the environment, industry, and biological and medical sciences • Includes multiple choice questions similar to aptitude exams for professional schools Written for students of organic chemistry, Organic Chemistry: Concepts and Applications is the comprehensive text that presents the material in clear terms and shows how to apply the concepts to problem solving.

A strong chemical workforce in the United States will be essential to the ability to address many issues of societal concern in the future, including demand for renewable energy, more advanced materials, and more sophisticated pharmaceuticals. High school chemistry teachers have a critical role to play in engaging and supporting the chemical workforce of the future, but they must be sufficiently knowledgeable and skilled to produce the levels of scientific literacy that students need to succeed. To identify key leverage points for improving high school chemistry education, the National Academies' Chemical Sciences Roundtable held a public workshop, summarized in this volume, that brought together representatives from government, industry, academia, scientific societies, and foundations involved in outreach programs for high school chemistry teachers. Presentations at the workshop, which was held in August 2008, addressed the current status of high school chemistry education; provided examples of public and private outreach programs for high school chemistry teachers; and explored ways to evaluate the success of these outreach programs.
