Roth, Dana L. (2015)
Publisher: American Chemical Society
Journal: ACS Central Science
Types: Article
Subjects: Editorial
As Carolyn Bertozzi mentioned in her inaugural editorial, the relationship of “Central Science” to “Chemistry” became popularized over 40 years ago with the publication of the first edition of Brown and LeMay’s Chemistry: The Central Science, now in its 13th edition. Yet as late as 2003, Prof. Sason Shaik at The Hebrew University claimed “popularization of chemistry remains scant.” He goes on to share [his] “own experience of popularizing chemistry by delivering the following universal message of our science, that Chemistry is the window given to Mankind to glimpse into its material essence.”
