Elements and Atoms: Case Studies in the Development of Chemistry
by Carmen Giunta
Publisher: Le Moyne College 2014
My intention here is to collect several articles by scientists who contributed to the development of knowledge about atoms and elements, and to provide sufficient background and commentary to place the work of these pioneers in context. In addition, I attempt to teach about how science is done by examining the work of particular scientists in their own words and adding to their articles annotations designed to emphasize the researchers' methodology.

Nuclear magnetic resonance, or NMR as it is abbreviated by scientists, is a phenomenon which occurs when the nuclei of certain atoms are immersed in a static magnetic field and exposed to a second oscillating magnetic field.

This book is an attempt to outline as briefly and succinctly as possible the historical development of chemistry. It is presumed that the reader is acquiring, or already possesses, a fair knowledge of present-day chemical theory and practice.

This book is based on a course given to students in Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The purpose is not to teach Chemistry, but to teach Mathematics in a form readily assimilated by Chemists and Chemical Engineers.
