CHEMISTRY:CONNECTIONS TO OUR

Chemistry Connections to our Changing world


Degrees

  • Ph.D. (1966), University of Illinois (John C. Bailar)
  • M.S. (1964), University of Illinois (John C. Bailar)
  • B.S. (1962), Pacific Lutheran University

Research Interests

Our research activities have focused primarily upon reactions in solids. Most effort has been directed toward solid-phase isomerization and ligand exchange reactions of coordination compounds. We have utilized X-ray crystallography to seek structure-reactivity patterns for solid-phase reactions. We have also relied heavily on thermoanalytical techniques such as differential scanning calorimetry. We are also greatly interested in chemical education and are involved in textbook development both as a author and as a consultant. Two textbooks that we have coauthored are widely used in college and high school courses: Chemistry: the Central Science, a general chemistry textbook that is also used in advanced-placement courses in high schools, and Chemistry: Connections to our Changing World, a high-school text.
