A giant in the field and at times a polarizing figure, F. Albert Cotton’s contributions to inorganic chemistry and the area of transitions metals are substantial and undeniable. In his own words, My Life in the Golden Age of Chemistry: More Fun than Fun describes the late chemist’s early life and college years in Philadelphia, his graduate training and research contributions at Harvard with Geoffrey Wilkinson, and his academic career from becoming the youngest ever full professor at MIT (aged 31) to his extensive time at Texas A&M. Professor Cotton’s autobiography offers his unique perspective on the advances he and his contemporaries achieved through one of the most prolific times in modern inorganic chemistry, in research on the then-emerging field of organometallic chemistry, metallocenes, multiple bonding between transition metal atoms, NMR and ESR spectroscopy, hapticity, and more. Working during a time of generous government funding of science and strong sponsorship for good research, Professor Cotton’s experience and observations provide insight into this prolific and exciting period of chemistry. Offers personal and often wry perspective from this prominent chemist and recipient of some of science’s highest honors: the U.S. National Medal of Science (1982), the Priestley Medal (the American Chemical Society's highest recognition, 1998), membership in the U. S. National Academy of Sciences and corresponding international bodies, and 29 honorary doctorates Details the background behind the development and emergence of groundbreaking research in organometallic chemistry and transition metals Provides beautifully-written and engaging insight into a "Golden Age of Chemistry" and the work of historically renowned chemists

This is the first comprehensive history of the chemistry department at Imperial College London. Based on archival records, oral testimony, published papers, published and unpublished memoirs, the book tells the story of this world-famous department from its foundation as the Royal College of Chemistry in 1845 to the large department it had become by the year 2000. The book covers research, teaching, departmental governance, students and social life. It also highlights the extraordinary contributions made to the war effort in both the first and second world wars. From its first professors, A. Wilhelm Hofmann and Edward Frankland, the department has been home to many eminent chemists, including, in the later twentieth century, the Nobel laureates Derek Barton and Geoffrey Wilkinson. New information on these and many others is presented in a lively narrative that places both people and events in the larger historical contexts of chemistry, politics, culture and the economy. The book will interest not only those connected with Imperial College, but anyone interested in chemistry and its history, or in higher

Bruce Merrifield, eminent American scientist, 1984 Nobel Prize winner and professor at The Rockefeller University, is noted for his single-handed development of solid phase peptide synthesis. The progress of biochemistry and related fields is closely correlated with the availability of pure peptides, and in this volume, Merrifield describes nearly 40 years of progress. The warmth and kindness of this sincere gentleman is described by his personal experiences. Many photographs depict both the professional as well as the personal side of Bruce Merrifield.

In his heyday as a top television news broadcaster, Ed Mitchell interviewed high-profile politicians such as Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Tony Blair. He commanded a six-figure salary, travelled the world and had a seemingly perfect family life. But, behind the scenes, Ed was battling the demons of alcohol and debt which led ultimately to his homelessness. This is the astonishing true story of the newscaster who became known as the white-collar tramp. After he was sacked from his job at CNBC, his life began to spiral. Ed's marriage collapsed and he was eventually declared bankrupt. With nowhere to live, no job and not a penny to his name, he was forced to sleep rough on a bench in Brighton. Ed's story became headline news when a local reporter came across the astonishing tale of his dramatic fall from grace and within days, Ed was booked into Europe's most famous rehab centre, The Priory. In this stunningly candid book, Ed finally tells his whole, true story. He recalls hilarious anecdotes from his days as a news reporter, and with searing honesty says, 'I don't have any regrets, I don't blame and I don't sit around whinging.' His story gives an honest insight into the kind of problems that affect so many people and ultimately offers hope.
