Elements and Atoms: Case Studies in the Development of Chemistry
by

Publisher: Le Moyne College

Description:
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.
