Chemical kinetics and reaction mechanisms by James Espenson

By James Espenson

This booklet covers chemical kinetics from the operating chemists' perspective. Competing books current a extra theoretical presentation of kinetics. This ebook is a "how to" ebook for designing experiments, studying, and critiquing them. Chemical Kinetics and response Mechanisms additionally prepares chemists to plan experiments to check varied hypotheses. A diskette that is helping scholars clear up end-of-chapter difficulties is packaged with each one textual content.

Example text

Lavoisier’s greatest ally in his campaign to promote the new chemical system was Marie-Anne Lavoisier. In one episode, Marie-Anne staged a scene where she publicly burned the works of Stahl and other books promoting phlogiston. Marie-Anne served Antoine in several important capacities. As a gifted linguist and artist, she translated English works and illustrated his publications. She served as a personal secretary transcribing notes, editing papers, and assisting in his laboratory experiments. Lavoisier, by all accounts, was not a humble person.

A general intolerance of science pervaded Arab culture, and scientists were not free to publish their ideas. Christian Crusaders from the West and Mongol invaders from the East exerted pressure on the Arabic world. As traditional Arab regions were recaptured by Europeans, the classical knowledge that had been preserved and advanced by the Arabs influenced European thinking. Major Arab learning centers, such as Toledo in Spain, provided works to rekindle European science. From the twelfth century, major advances in the chemical arts shifted from Arab lands to western Europe.

Several Europeans, while not alchemists themselves, contributed to setting the stage for modern chemistry. Albertus Magnus (1200–1280), also known as Albert the Great, played an important role in intro- ducing Greek and Arabic science and philosophy in the Middle Ages. Albert produced numerous commentaries on the works of Aristotle. These commentaries helped establish the value of studying natural philosophy along with the philosophical logic of Aristotle. Albert had a major influence on his most famous student, Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274).
