JCE 91.07—July 2014 Issue Highlights

Journal of Chemical Education July 2014 Cover

Passion for and Dedication to Chemistry and Education

The July 2014 issue of the Journal of Chemical Education is now available to subscribers. The July issue features a tribute to J. J. Lagowski, green chemistry principles, book recommendations for the summer, organic chemistry in action, computation chemistry experiments, resources for teaching fluorescence spectroscopy.


John W. Moore, the seventh Editor-in-Chief of JCE, pays homage to , the sixth Editor-in-Chief of JCE, with a taste of JJL’s professional accomplishments, personality, and dedication to chemistry and education.

Green Chemistry Principles

In the cover article, , Landon J. G. Edgar, Katherine J. Koroluk, Mehrnaz Golmakani, and Andrew P. Dicks describe a self-directed, independent synthesis experiment for a third-year undergraduate organic laboratory. Students are provided with the CAS numbers of starting and target compounds and devise a synthetic plan to be executed over two, 4.5 h laboratory periods. This well-received laboratory requires students to plan, make independent decisions, and apply their knowledge and understanding of green chemistry.

Additional articles on green chemistry in the issue include:
