DAVID J. MORRISSEY, PhD, is a Professor of Chemistry and faculty member of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Lab at Michigan State University.
GLENN T. SEABORG, PhD (deceased), was a Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, and cofounder and chairman of the Lawrence Hall of Science. He is credited with discovering ten new elements, including plutonium and one that now bears his name, seaborgium. In 1951, Dr. Seaborg and his colleague Edwin McMillan were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for research into transuranium elements.
"...an authoritative, comprehensive but succinct, state-of-the-art textbook for advanced students as well as a valuable reference source for practicing scientists and engineers." (The Chemical Educator, March/April 2006)
