Chemistry Today and Tomorrow

Author: Ronald Breslow
Publisher: Jones & Bartlett Learning
ISBN: 0763704636
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Science

This highly readable book, written in nontechnical language, surveys the vast field of chemistry by looking at the practical contributions that chemistry makes to civilized life and by explaining how chemists make these contributions. Its eight chapters discuss broad disciplines of chemistry, such as medicinal, environmental, or industrial chemistry, but always with an eye for the interesting detail and for the human activity that lies behind these fields. Written in a lively question-and-answer format by award-winning teacher and researcher Ronald Breslow, recipient of the U.S. National Medal of Science in 1991, this book examines chemistry as it exists today but also identifies the primary challenges and problems that remain for the future. Young people thinking about scientific careers, parents and guidance counselors, or any readers curious about how chemistry affects the world they live in will benefit from this insightful book.

Sustainable Industrial Chemistry

Author: Fabrizio Cavani
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9783527629121
Release Date: 2009-09-22
Genre: Technology & Engineering

In recent years the need for sustainable process design and alternative reaction routes to reduce industry?s impact on the environment has gained vital importance. The book begins with a general overview of new trends in designing industrial chemical processes which are environmentally friendly and economically feasible. Specific examples written by experts from industry cover the possibilities of running industrial chemical processes in a sustainable manner and provide an up-to-date insight into the main concerns, e.g., the use of renewable raw materials, the use of alternative energy sources in chemical processes, the design of intrinsically safe processes, microreactor and integrated reaction/ separation technologies, process intensification, waste reduction, new catalytic routes and/or solvent and process optimization.

John Fetzer’s "Career Management for Chemists" provides ample, common-sense guidance on the key topics such as: Resumés and CVs, Staying Driven & Current, Personal Skills & Traits Networking, Teamwork & Leadership, Speaking & Listening Writing Research Papers, Mentoring, Behavior & Rewards The practical coverage reflects not only his long professional experience but also his insight that, especially in today’s changing workplace, expectations and strategies for career management require constant re-evaluation. Provides real, common-sense, and proven means to enrich and make more rewarding a technical career. Pre-publication comments from colleagues - "Not only the student who is taking his first steps in the scientific world would profit abundantly by mining this book for views and ideas on the different sides of his chosen career. Also the seasoned scientist will be stimulated to scrutinize his own habits and pick up new thoughts, thereby becoming a more skilled instructor of his younger colleagues." J. Andersson, University of Münster, Germany "As one of the international collaborators of Dr. John Fetzer, I want to warmly congratulate him. His efforts nicely summarize very important topics for all who work in scientific activities. But, at the same time, Career Management for Chemists also provides some real insights for many people who are not working in science. This is a nice guidebook on how to enrich our lives and help us to become more successful!! K. Jinno, Toyohashi University of Technology
