Promotional Information

* Two levels of explanations: general, accessible ones highlight the chemical essence of the phenomenon; and technical ones using chemical principles provide more in-depth interpretation * Indexing of questions according to key principles or terms enhances instructional use * Figures and 3-D chemical structures illustrate the chemical concepts presented * References to related World Wide Web sites for further exploration provide inexpensive and convient access to related information. * Color plates enhance connections between specific topics

About the Author

Dr. Kerry K. Karukstis is Professor of Chemistry at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 1977 from Duke University and her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 1981from Duke University. Prior to her arrival at Harvey Mudd College in 1984, she was a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Laboratory of Chemical Biodynamics at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research interests involve applications of absorbance and fluorescence spectroscopy to surfactant assemblies (micelles, reverse micelles, vesicles, liposomes) and host-guest systems (cyclodextrins, dendrimers). She is co-author with Gerald R. Van Hecke of A Student's Guide to Lasers in Chemistry, a monograph for undergraduates on applications of lasers in chemistry. She is a member of the American Chemical Society, the American Society for Photobiology, the Biophysical Society, the Council on Undergraduate Research, Phi Beta Kappa, and Society of the Sigma Xi - The Scientific Research Society. She is also currently a Councilor for the Chemistry Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research. Her curricular initiatives have focused on two areas: introducing undergraduate applications of lasers in chemistry and incorporating biophysical applications and experiments in physical chemistry courses andlaboratories. Dr. Gerald R. Van Hecke is Professor of Chemistry at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 1961 from Harvey Mudd College and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Physical Chemistry in 1963 and 1966 from Princeton University. Prior to his arrival at Harvey Mudd College in 1970, he was a Chemist at Shell Development in Emeryville, California. His research interests involve studies of liquid crystalline materials, from synthesis of new materials to their characterization bythermodynamic and spectral measurements. He also uses laser light scattering to measure thermodynamic properties of mixtures of simple liquids. He is co-author with Kerry K. Karukstis of A Student's Guide to Lasers in Chemistry, amonograph for undergraduates on the applications of lasers in chemistry. He is a member of the American Chemical Society, the International Liquid Crystal Society, the Council on Undergraduate Research, and Society of the Sigma Xi - The Scientific Research Society. His curricular initiatives have focused on introducing undergraduate applications of lasers in chemistry.

Reviews

"...a very effective way to increase students' interest in chemistry...The selected examples provide a welcome dose of reality..." --Jeffrey B. Arterburn, New Mexico State University "...the authors weave in essential concepts without the reader even knowing it. The references...are EXCELLENT." --Jennifer Shepherd, Gonzaga University "...wonderful and fun...buy one...and use it every day to add relevant examples to all your chemistry courses." --Tricia Ferrett, Carleton College
