about

    The demonstrations capture interest, teach, inform, fascinate, amaze, and perhaps, most importantly, involve students in chemistry. Nowhere else will you find books that answer, "How come it happens? . . . Is it safe? . . . What do I do with all the stuff when the demo is over?"
    Shakhashiri and his collaborators offer 282 chemical demonstrations arranged in 11 chapters. Each demonstration includes seven sections: a brief summary, a materials list, a step-by-step account of procedures to be used, an explanation of the hazards involved, information on how to store or dispose of the chemicals used, a discussion of the phenomena displayed and principles illustrated by the demonstration, and a list of references.

Bassam Z. Shakhashiri is professor of chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and founder of the Institute for Chemical Education.  He is a recipient of the  American Chemical Society's James Flack Norris Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Teaching of Chemistry as well as many other awards.
