A Festival of Chemistry Entertainments by Jack Stocker, Natalie Foster

By Jack Stocker, Natalie Foster

This ebook, part of the yankee Chemical Society's Symposium sequence, is a suite of a few pleasant bits of caprice and humor, either intentional and unintentional, from the area of chemistry. beneath these recognized white lab coats in actual fact beat hearts which are able to find and having fun with the lighter aspect in their technology. From chemistry-based crossword puzzles to papers introduced in verse and track, it is a excellent choice of the quirkiest incidents and episodes within the fresh background of chemistry. issues contain Ken Reese's back-page column of Chemical and Engineering information, the track that observed the papers of physicist Howard Shapiro, and the hidden whimsy present in the supposedly somber files of the Chemical Abstracts provider.

Translating Caesar’s “Gallic Wars” and Ovid’s “Metamorphoses” were a joy. It never occurred to me, nor would it have mattered if it had, that there might be no “use” to all this effort. I was having a ball! When I began my junior year, the unthinkable happened. A new love intruded and began to take over my mind and heart. Yes, my old love still existed, and I took up Cicero’s “Orations” and Vergil’s “Aeneid,” with great enthusiasm. But as I progressed more deeply into my chemistry course with Sister Mary Sarah Dillon, I began to realize that atomic theory and precipitation reactions were threatening to supersede the ablative absolute!
