SCIENCE teachers, TEACHER training, CHEMISTRY education, HIGH schools, OCCUPATIONAL training, SECONDARY education, EFFECTIVE teaching, HIGH school students, and EDUCATION research
The article discusses studies about developments in professional training of science teachers in high schools in the U.S. A chemistry teacher should have as a minimum, college courses in general inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, qualitative analysis, quantitative analysis and physical chemistry. Organic chemistry is studied because of the basic principles and general information involved and the important role organic substances play in modern life. One of the conclusions reached by the Committee on Preparation of High School Chemistry teachers is that more extensive training and other sciences is urgently needed in many cases and these needs should be met either by decreasing the requirements in educational course, by increasing the number of credits required for graduation.
Biochemistry, Marine animals, Animal diversity, Organic chemistry, Biodiversity conservation, and Chemical biology
The article discusses a variety of issues concerning the comparative biochemistry of marine animals. It notes that the increasing scientific activities in the 1950s led to the advent of marine biochemistry. The use of organic chemistry methods in the study of natural products, according to the author, incidentally relieved the chemical diversity among species, which eventually led to comparative biochemistry. In an effort to explain the correlation of molecular structure, ecological value and physiological effect among marine animals, the author recounts some research on comparative biochemistry.
SCIENTISTS, BIOLOGISTS, BIOLOGICAL research, SCIENTIFIC community, and OXYTETRACYCLINE
The article presents information on scientist Ben A. Sobin and his research achievements. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1912 and his graduate education took place at Ohio State University. He specialized in chemistry, organic chemistry, bacteriology and biochemistry. Professionally he worked in various organizations and his career with Pfizer Inc. began as chief of biologies control where he attained success in research assignment. One of them was the preparation of the first samples of Terramycin under Sobin's direction.
Organic chemistry, Periodical editors, Sulfonamide drugs, and Doctor of philosophy degree
The article profiles guest editor James H. Williams. Born in 1908 in Manchester, England, he did his B.Sc. in Chemistry from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Massachusetts, and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from New York University in 1933. He was involved in the development of the sulfa drug field. He was also acted as Director of Research at Lederle Laboratories Division of American Cyanamid Co. and was active in this position during the development of antibiotics. Currently he is assistant to the general manager at Lederle and looking after matters relating to patents and licenses.
Organic chemistry, Origin of life, Societies, Religion, Philosophy, and Science
The article reports on the International Society of the Origin of Life, an organization which centers on the question of how life originated within the realm of experimental science and philosophy. It is implied that the organization inaugurated A. I. Oparin as its new president who partially influenced the transformation of the said question from the domain of philosophy and religion to organic chemistry. Details about its meeting, sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center, in which the first living entities on earth were discussed are also contained in the article.
Tree development, Invertebrates, Organic chemistry, Photoreceptors, Comparative studies, and Peptides
The article lists new science books including "Growth and Development of Trees," by T. T. Kozlowski, "Invertebrate Photoreceptors: A Comparative Analysis," by J. J. Wolken, and "The Organic Chemistry of peptides," by H. D. Law.
