We hope to take a few minutes to introduce our book, CANDID SCIENCE
III: More Conversations with Famous Chemists.
Hailed by Nature as "a worthwhile contribution to the oral history of
science", CANDID SCIENCE III describes the lifes of 36 famous
chemists, 18 of them Nobel Laureates as they share with you the
beginnings of their careers, their aspirations, their hardships and
You will learn about their seminal discoveries, and the conversations
in the book bring out the humanity of these great scientists.
Highlighted in the stories are the discovery of new elements and
compounds, the VSEPR model, computational chemistry, organic
synthesis, natural products, polysaccharides, supramolecular
chemistry, peptide synthesis, combinatorial chemistry, X-ray
crystallography, the reaction mechanism and kinetics, electron
transfer in small and large systems, non-equilibrium systems,
oscillating reactions, atmospheric chemistry, chirality, and the
history of chemistry.
