9780615702711: Organic Chemistry Principles in Context: A Story Telling Historical Approach

"Organic Chemistry Principles in Context: A Story Telling Historical Approach" takes a path that is a radical departure from the way all other textbooks of this subject are written. The principles of organic chemistry are discovered by investigation of the complex phenomena that arise from application of these principles, crossing the spectrum from the academic to the biological to the industrial. All the fundamental principles of organic chemistry normally presented in an undergraduate one year organic chemistry course are found in this book in the context of the stories and the people involved in their discovery. The students who have used this book have found it to be an attractive and effective method of learning organic chemistry. The teachers of the subject have found that the book enhances their own appreciation and love of the subject. The author of the book, Professor Mark M. Green, has organized a free access web site with a link to the answers to all of the problems at the end of every section of the book. In addition this web site, OrganicChemistryPrinciplesinContext.com, has links to explanatory video lectures made by Professor Green for each of the book’s twelve chapters.

About the Author:

Mark M. Green is a 1958 graduate of the City College of New York. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University working with Kurt Mislow followed by a National Institutes of Health postdoctoral fellowship with Carl Djerassi at Stanford University. He served as professor of chemistry at several universities with long experience in teaching organic chemistry to students of widely varying abilities. He has been at his current position at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University since 1980. Professor Green’s over 40 year career of academic research has been widely recognized. He was awarded a National Science Foundation “Special Creativity Award” in 1995, elected chair wof the Polymer Chemistry Gordon Conference for the year 2000, elected a “Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science” in 2003 and was named a winner of the Society of Polymer Science of Japan award for “Outstanding Achievement in Polymer Science and Technology” in 2005. He has been elected as a “Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science” for “pioneering work in important new areas of polymer science.” He serves on the editorial board of “Topics in Stereochemistry,” and has served on the editorial board of the American Chemical Society journal “Macromolecules.” Professor Green received a Jacobs’ Excellence in Teaching Award by the Polytechnic Institute of NYU in 2006. His interest in communicating science to general audiences has led to several years of writing columns for two newspapers, which are published in a blog, sciencefromaway.com. In recent years Professor Green has turned his attention to further developing his long interest in teaching organic chemistry in context by using a story-telling historical approach. His first book, Organic Chemistry Principles and Industrial Practice (2003 Wiley-VCH) written with Harold A. Wittcoff, has been widely praised as a resource for chemistry teachers seeking material to enhance their classes and has been used as a text for both chemical engineering students studying beginning organic chemistry as well as for graduate courses in the chemical sciences. Books Co-Authored and Co-Edited: Organic Chemistry Principles and Industrial Practice, Mark M. Green and Harold A. Wittcoff, Wiley-VCH, 2003. Materials-Chirality, edited by Mark M. Green, Roeland Nolte and Bert Meijer, Volume 24 in the series, Topics in Stereochemistry, Wiley-Interscience, 2003. Popular Science Articles: Sciencefromaway.com

Review:

“This book is like no other organic chemistry textbook. Principles in Context is a creative and daring approach to teaching organic chemistry, and it might just be the way to get our students intrigued about the subject.” Jeffrey Moore, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

"This is a marvelous piece of work. It looks like the author is taking an unconventional approach to teaching chemistry, but as he explains in the preface to this book, it is in fact a very natural one. It is the way by which we make ourselves familiar with new things: we hear about it, become interested and go deeper into it. I hope that this book will be brought to the attention of many teachers all over the world. The students deserve it.” Roeland Nolte, Royal Netherlands Academy of Science Professor Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands

"This is the most interesting organic chemistry textbook I have read since my days as an undergraduate student. It weaves together all of the fundamentals of organic chemistry into stories/problems of relevance to society, with an eye on the historical development of the field. I would love to use this book to teach chemistry majors and honors students. I learned a lot from this truly unique approach to teaching organic chemistry.” David Hart, Department of Chemistry, Ohio State University

“I think you have done something really interesting; so much so that I read it with much more care than I might have. I found myself caught up in seeing how you managed to get (nearly) everything into the book in a most unusual order.” Ian Fleming, Cambridge University, United Kingdom

"Congratulations - a masterwork. I would have liked to learn organic chemistry through such a book. I fully share with you the opinion that teaching science through history is the most logical way to attract the interest of the beginners in the field and to show them how discoveries are made." Meir Lahav, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel

“Since Organic Chemistry has been taught for more than 100 years, you would have thought that there have been so many different approaches that it would be impossible to find a new way. Well, Mark Green has managed to find an innovative and fascinating way to interest students – he calls it a story-telling historical approach. It begins with quite complex issues – Chapter 1 is entitled “From Cellulose and Starch to the Principles of Stereochemistry” using carbohydrate chemistry to illustrate the ideas presented, but his story-telling approach should make it relatively easy for students/readers to grasp the fundamentals. The chapter is full of names and pictures of scientists putting the history of organic chemistry, as well as its principles, into context. Subsequent chapters cover spectroscopy, mechanisms and carbocations, the latter in two chapters with industrial and natural product examples. After other chapters covering topics such as aromatic chemistry, carbonyl chemistry, carbanions, radicals and polymers and industrial chemistry, the final two chapters cover synthesis. All the chapters are beautifully integrated and written in a journalistic, readable style rather than the usual “stodgy” text book approach, making this book one of the most unusual and interesting “text” books I have read for ages. Industrial examples are woven into each chapter integrating the organic chemistry principles with practical application. Whilst intended for students, all those interested in organic chemistry will learn from reading this fascinating account.” High recommended, for all ages!” Trevor Laird, Editor, Scientific Update, United Kingdom

What if everything you think you know about chemistry textbooks is wrong? In his book, What the Best College Teachers Do, Ken Bain states several times that expert instructors grab the attention of their class and stimulate motivation in part by leading with an intriguing question or stimulating case study. Students need to buy into something important, beautiful, practical or artistic before meaningful learning can take place. In embracing this idea, Mark Green of the Polytechnic Institute of New York University turns the traditional undergraduate organic chemistry textbook upside-down in his shockingly affordable new textbook Organic Chemistry Principles in Context. In fact, the most noticeable aspect of this textbook is its deviation of what many academics would consider ‘mainstream’ or ‘accepted.’ ................. The most common illustration in this textbook is a portrait of a chemist whose contributions led to the essential concept being taught. The chemistry of the present day is understood by visiting the chemists of the past, sometimes by reading their own words from seminal publications. In many ways, the textbook reads like a script for a documentary about organic chemistry. The historical context draws the students into the thematic stories and entices them to invest in education for education sake...........This textbook offers a fascinating and dramatic change to the landscape of textbook choice. Nature Chemistry May 2013

“Science has stories in it........These narrative qualities are not only important in composing research papers, but also to effective teaching. An innovative, recent chemical text, Mark Green’s *Organic Chemistry Principles in Context: A Story Telling Historical Approach, *makes consistent use of storytelling by focusing on particular chemical problems and the lives of the chemists who solved these problems.”

Roald Hoffmann, in “The Tensions of Scientific Story Telling,” American Scientist, Volume 102, pages 250-253.
