Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

SpartanModel replaces the plastic models used by past generations of organic chemistry students. This set of easy-to-use digital builders allows you to construct and manipulate 3-D molecules of any size or complexity. Each copy includes software on CD-ROM, an extensive molecular database, 3-D glasses, and a Tutorial and User's Guide with 50 pages of activities for organic chemistry.

Book News Annotation:

This book is designed to help students learn how to move electrons around during their organic chemistry homework. This skill facilitates writing resonance structures, bond-breaking and bond-making steps in organic mechanisms, and is conducive to a clearer understanding of the reactions of biochemistry. The book contains hundreds of molecule diagrams and other visual aids. No index.

About the Author

Daniel Weeks is a native of New Jersey. He earned a B.S. in chemistry at Wesleyan College in West Virginia, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in organic chemistry at the University of Delaware. After a post-doctoral year at Brown University he began to learn his craft during a temporary appointment at Haverford College. He taught at Seton Hall University for about 20 years and finished his career with ten delightful years at Northwestern University. While he published research on the mechanisms of hydrolysis of organic compounds in aqueous solutions, mostly in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, his greatest satisfaction came from "seeing the light go on in his students' eyes." He has a reputation as an informative, entertaining and even funny lecturer. He is a self-confessed "ham" who always remembered that although what he taught was old stuff to him it was new to his students.
