Raymond Chang received his B.Sc. degree in chemistry from London University, England and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Yale University. After doing postdoctoral research at Washington University and teaching for a year at Hunter College, he joined the chemistry at Williams College, where he has taught since 1968. Professor Chang has written books on spectroscopy, physical chemistry, and industrial chemistry. Kenneth Goldsby is a professor at the University of Florida, accompanies by Raymond from seventy edition USE of Fundamentals of General Chemistry. is studies on chimicainorganica have enriched the content and exercises in the book and his intense work with the students, both in the classroom and in the laboratory, has consolidated the long experience of the professor Chang focused on understanding and respect of the students point of view both the text and the teacher himself.
