Organic Chemistry, the Name Game

Modern Coined Terms and Their Origins

Book - 1987
Rate this:
This unique book deals with the origins of contemporary terms in organic chemistry and thus treats an aspect of that science which is pertinent to both research and education. While delving into original publications for names, who coined them, and in what context, the authors contacted hundreds of chemists worldwide - an undertaking that extended over ten years. Although the book's main focus is terminology, it includes over 500 drawings and numerous human interest items which do not appear in the literature and would otherwise be lost to future generations. Anyone who teaches, works at, or otherwise deals with organic chemistry will find this volume informative, enjoyable reading and a valuable source of engaging material.
