The Chemistry of Radical Polymerization 3rd Edition
The Chemistry of Radical Polymerization, Third Edition, is completely updated with the latest trends, terminology, and applications in this fast-moving field. This comprehensive reference contains crucial foundational information that will help users understand the factors which control radical polymerization, along with practical content to support the design of polymer syntheses, and critical evaluation of the latest developments and their impact on research and practice. Covering vital processes that chemistry researchers, practitioners, and advanced students need to know, the book includes new content on the growing area of heterogeneous polymerization, including emulsion, miniemulsion, microemulsion, and dispersion polymerization. This new edition also explores recent progress in methods of control, including those not based on reversible deactivation radical polymerization or living radical polymerization. The coverage of RAFT polymerization has also been thoroughly updated to match the current IUPAC recommendation as well as to correspond with this exciting area of active research.

Providing an excellent compilation of the most important and useful methods of modern stereoselective synthesis, this book features illustrative examples of drug and natural product syntheses, resulting in a rich source of stimulating ideas for the efficient use of asymmetric reactions in the users’ own synthesis. The authors adopt a novel approach in not attempting to present this rapidly developing area in its entirety, but to distill the truly groundbreaking reactions that should be in the repertoire of every synthetic organic chemist.
About the Author
Erick M. Carreira, born in La Habana, Cuba, obtained a B.S. degree in 1984 from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign under the supervision of Scott E. Denmark, and a PhD in 1990 from Harvard University under the supervision of David A. Evans. After carrying out postdoctoral work with Peter Dervan at the California Institute of Technology through mid-1992, he joined the faculty at the same institution as an assistant professor of chemistry and was promoted to full professor in 1997. In 1998, he moved to the Laboratory of Organic Chemistry at the ETH-Zurich, Switzerland. He has over 180 research publications and numerous patents to his name. He is the recipient of, among others, the American Chemical Society Award in Pure Chemistry the Nobel Laureate Signature Award, and he has held the David and Lucile Packard Foundation Fellowship in Science and Engineering as well as the Tetrahedron Chair Prize. Professor Carreira’s research program is focused on the four interrelated areas of organic synthesis: catalysis, methodology, natural products synthesis, and bioorganic chemistry. Lisbet Kvaerno, born in Denmark, received her M.Sc. in chemistry from the University of Copenhagen under Prof. Jesper Wengel. She obtained her PhD in 2004 after working in total synthesis at the Technical University of Denmark under Prof. David Tanner and in medicinal chemistry at the ETH Zurich supervised by Prof. Erick M. Carreira. As a postdoctoral fellow in the research group of Prof. David A. Evans at Harvard University, she completed the total synthesis of the marine natural product ( )-azaspiracid. After a brief period as an independent junior group leader at the Max Planck Institute of Coal Research in Muelheim, Germany, she joined Lundbeck in Copenhagen as a process chemist in the late summer of 2008.

About the Author
Kwang Jeon received his Ph.D. in cell physiology at King’s College, University of London, UK, in 1964 and taught at SUNY Buffalo and University of Tennessee. His research was concerned with the biogenesis and function of cell components in two major areas: Integration of intracellular symbionts into host cells leading to the acquisition of new cell components and cell variation; Membrane-protein recycling during endo- and exocytosis.
undamentals of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry by McMurry, Ballantine, Hoeger, and Peterson provides background in chemistry and biochemistry with a relatable context to ensure students of all disciplines gain an appreciation of chemistry’s significance in everyday life.
Known for its clarity and concise presentation, this book balances chemical concepts with examples, drawn from students’ everyday lives and experiences, to explain the quantitative aspects of chemistry and provide deeper insight into theoretical principles. The Seventh Edition focuses on making connections between General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry through a number of new and updated features — including all-new Mastering Reactions boxes, Chemistry in Action boxes, new and revised chapter problems that strengthen the ties between major concepts in each chapter, practical applications, and much more.
Laboratory Manual for General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry can accompany the lab portion of any one-semester GOB chemistry course. Most experiments include a link to the health sciences, such as nursing and nutrition, while concepts are framed in real-world questions and are broadly applicable. Many of the experiments illustrate concepts from more than one chapter of the text and often utilize basics from the areas of general, organic, or biological chemistry to develop concepts in one or more of the other areas. This integrated strategy helps students to understand that chemistry is not a disparate set of unrelated concepts. Using this integrated approach, students develop the skills to help them understand chemistry and to see its applications in their everyday lives.
About the Author
Todd S. Deal received his B.S. degree in chemistry in 1986 from Georgia Southern College (now University) in Statesboro, Georgia, and his Ph.D. in chemistry in 1990 from The Ohio State University. He joined the faculty of his undergraduate alma mater in 1992, where he currently serves as Director of the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement. Professor Deal has taught chemistry to allied health and preprofessional students for 20 years. In 1994, he was selected Professor of the Year by the students at Georgia Southern University. Professor Deal is also the recipient of the Allen E. Paulson College of Science and Technology’s Award for Excellence in Teaching (2003), the Georgia Southern University Award for Excellence in Contributions to Instruction (2003), and the Allen E. Paulson College of Science and Technology’s Award for Excellence in Service (2006).
