Recently retired, I taught physical chemistry at Southern Connecticut State University since 1966. I received my undergraduate degree in 1960 from the University of Connecticut and my Ph.D. degree in chemistry in 1964 from Harvard University. My areas of research have included nuclear magnetic resonance of solids, preparation and characterization of organo-silicon-nitrogen polymers, characterization of the physical properties of asphalt at low-temperature, X-ray crystallography, synthesis and properties of superconductors, quantum chemistry, and presently the physical chemistry of the atmosphere. I am the author of:
"Applied Mathematics for Physical Chemistry," now in its third edition. Pearson Prentice Hall (2004).
"Physical Chemistry for the Life Sciences," Prentice Hall, (now translated into Japanese)
"Global Warming for Dim Wits: A Scientist's Perspective of Climate Change," Universal Publishers (2010).
I have published a book review on the principles of spectroscopy, several papers in the areas of nuclear magnetic resonance and crystal structure, and my work was cited in papers presented by colleagues at several Pittsburgh Conferences in Cleveland.
