Chemical Achievers: Human Face of the Chemical Sciences by Mary Ellen Bowden
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book was designed to help teachers supplement science curricula with human stories of discovery in the chemical sciences. "Chemical Achievers" presents the lives and work of two types of achievers. First are the historical greats, those chemical scientists most often referred to in introductory courses. Second are those scientists who made contributions in areas of the chemical sciences that are of special relevance to modern life and the career choices students will make. The human faces summarised in this book range from Robert Boyle to Glenn Seaborg and Stephanie Kwolek. In this lively and comprehensive collection of photographs and biographies, Bowden illuminates how much the chemical sciences owe to the individual achiever. Over 150 images can be easily reproduced as overhead transparencies or other visual teaching aids.
