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, 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.
