About the Author

Dr. Kenneth M. Doxsee has been actively involved in undergraduate organic laboratory curriculum development and teaching throughout his academic career. He and Dr. Hutchison together designed and developed the University of Oregon's groundbreaking program in "green" (environmentally benign) organic chemistry. His research efforts are focused on the development of new and environmentally benign methods for the synthesis of solid-state materials with designed control of crystal form, size, and composition. He earned his B.S. (1978) and M.S. (1979) degrees from Stanford University under the direction of James P. Collman and John I. Brauman and his Ph.D. (1983) from the California Institute of Technology, with the support of a Hertz Foundation graduate fellowship, under the direction of Robert H. Grubbs. Following an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California at Los Angeles, working with Donald J. Cram, he moved to the University of Southern California in 1985, and then to the University of Oregon in 1989, where he holds the rank of Professor of Chemistry. He and Dr. Hutchison were awarded the Outstanding Teacher of Science and Mathematics in Higher Education award by the Oregon Academy of Science in 2003. He is the author of over 50 refereed publications and book chapters and three patents.

Dr. James Hutchison has been on the faculty at the University of Oregon since the fall of 1994. He and Dr. Doxsee are the chief architects of the UO's nation-leading program in "green" (environmentally-benign) organic chemistry. He also helped establish the University of Oregon's Materials Science Institute Graduate Internship Program in Semiconductor Processing. He and his research group design and prepare new functional materials. His specific research interests include preparation and study of nanoscale materials, surface and polymers, for applications such as nanoelectronics, biocompatibility and environmental remediation. Before joining the faculty at the University of Oregon, he was a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Royce W. Murray at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He received his PhD in 1991 at Stanford University under the direction of Dr. James P. Collman. His undergraduate degree, a B.S. in chemistry, was completed in 1986 at the University of Oregon. Recently he was promoted to the rank of associate professor and has been named an Alfred P. Sloan research fellow and a Camille Dreyfus teacher-scholar. Previous awards include an NSF-CAREER award and a Dreyfus New Faculty Award. He is the author of over 55 refereed publications, three patents and three book chapters.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an organic chemistry student, I was concerned that I wasn't learning the appropriate way to think about organic synthesis. Most of the preoccupation with organic chemistry in the lab is just with the mastery of technique and familiarity with reagents. This book goes much further than the typical approach to organic chemistry.

The book is mainly composed of two sections: a 100pg primer on green organic chemistry reviewed in the next section, and then a 150pg set of 19 laboratory experiments.

Part 1: Overview of Green Organic Chemistry

The book begins with an overview of fundamental concepts outside of but related to organic chemistry such as: toxicology, environmental chemistry, environmental problems caused by organic synthesis, and environmental risk assessment.

The second part of the introductory section then introduces the main concepts of green chemistry such as alternative solvent usage. As a chem student this is especially useful not just because it provides a wonderful introduction to creative thinking in choosing solvents, but also because it provides a concise review of conventional solvents and their properties. It also provides a beautiful table with solubility, environmental fate, and hazard data. It then concludes the solvent section with how to design new solvents, and ultimately how to design syntheses without solvents.

It then explores the use of alternative reagents - such as biologically produced reagents, and even the use of light as a reagent. This section moves into a wonderful section on how to design a reaction efficiently and cleanly, providing green metrics like "atom economy.
