Selected Papers Of William N. Lipscomb, Jr., The: A Legacy In Structure-function Relationships Hardback

Edited by Jianpeng (Baylor College Of Medicine, Usa) Ma

Part of the Icp Selected Papers series


This book compiles a wonderful collection of original scientific articles from a group of outstanding scientists from around the world who worked or have been affiliated with the Nobel Laureate Professor William N Lipscomb, Jr. throughout his scientific career. Lipscomb is a long-standing icon in the fields of structural chemistry and structural biology.

One particularly interesting feature of this book is that accompanying each article is a commentary from each contributor, and a brief biography of them.

Among the contributors are Nobel Laureates Roald Hoffmann, AdaYonath, and Thomas A Steitz.

In addition, Lipscomb's son, James Lipscomb, comments on Lipscomb's life and science from a very unique perspective.These very personal anecdotes from a group of remarkable scientists are especially enlightening for young scientists in learning how to conduct science in general and on how a youth may grow into a great scientist.

This book will appeal to young students worldwide, and will serve to encourage some of the brightest minds to enter and excel in science.
