Most widely held works by Geoffrey Rayner-Canham
A devotion to their science : pioneer women of radioactivity by Marelene F Rayner-Canham( )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 2,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains 17 full biographies and 6 briefer accounts of most of the early women pioneers in the study of radioactivity
Creating complicated lives : women and science at English-Canadian universities, 1880-1980 by Marianne Gosztonyi Ainley( )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ainley argues that we must look at the lives of women scientists through a new historical lens that takes into account both the advances of science and concurrent debates about the advancement of women. Rather than having linear career trajectories, many women shifted fields, coped with discrimination, and endeavoured to find niches in which they could make significant contributions."--Pub. desc
Harriet Brooks : pioneer nuclear scientist by Marelene F Rayner-Canham( )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chemistry was their life : pioneer British women chemists, 1880-1949 by Marelene F Rayner-Canham( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British chemistry has traditionally been depicted as a solely male endeavour. However, this perspective is untrue: the allure of chemistry has attracted women since the earliest times. Despite the barriers placed in their path, women studied academic chemistry from the 1880s onwards and made interesting or significant contributions to their fields, yet they are virtually absent from historical records." "Comprising a unique set of biographies of 141 of the 896 known women chemists from 1880 to 1949, this work attempts to address the imbalance by showcasing the determination of these women to survive and flourish in an environment dominated by men. Individual biographical accounts interspersed with contemporary quotes describe how women overcame the barriers of secondary and tertiary education, and of admission to professional societies. Although these women are lost to historical records, they are brought together here for the first time to show that a vibrant culture of female chemists did indeed exist in Britain during the late 19th and early 20th centuries."--Jacket
Women in chemistry : their changing roles from alchemical times to the mid-twentieth century by Marelene F Rayner-Canham( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eilhard Mitscherlich (1794-1863) holds an important position among the chemists who created the basis of postLavoisier chemistry. His discoveries of iso- and polymorphism; his pioneering work on catalysis; and his research on benzene and benzene derivatives, the formation of ethers, and alchoholic fermentation belong to the truly fundamental achievements of classical chemistry. In 1822, at the instigation of his mentor Berzelius, Mitscherlich became the successor of Klaproth both as member of the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences and as full professor at the Friedrich-Wilhelm University. Despite his long quarrels with Liebig, the most influential chemist in Germany, Mitscherlich remained the most eminent representative of chemistry in Prussia. When he died, an epoch of chemistry in Berlin drew to an end
Descriptive inorganic chemistry by Geoffrey Rayner-Canham( Book )

81 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This bestselling text introduces descriptive inorganic chemistry in a less rigorous, less mathematical way. The book uses the periodic table as basis for understanding chemical properties and uncovering relationships between elements in different groups. Rayner-Canham and Overton's text also familiarizes students with the historical background of inorganic chemistry as well as with its crucial applications (especially in regard to industrial processes and environmental issues), resulting in a comprehensive appreciation and understanding of the field and the role it will play in their fields of further study."--Publisher's website
A chemical passion : the forgotten story of chemistry at British independent girls' schools, 1820s-1930s by Marelene F Rayner-Canham( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors reveal that from the 1820s to the 1930s chemistry teaching flourished in girls' independent schools in Britain. The fruit of years of research in the archives of dozens of schools, this account reveals the hidden history of a landmark achievement in the education of women
Allgemeine und anorganische Chemie by M Binnewies( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in German and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das erfolgreiche Grundlagenlehrbuch jetzt in durchgehend überarbeiteter Neuauflage Die viel gelobte Einführung in die Allgemeine und Anorganische Chemie ist für die 3. Auflage vollständig überarbeitet und aktualisiert worden. Das erweiterte Autorenteam - Michael Binnewies, Maik Finze, Manfred Jäckel, Peer Schmidt und Helge Willner - hat zahlreiche neue Inhalte eingearbeitet und den Text an anderen Stellen gestrafft, um das Lehrbuch wieder optimal auf die Bedürfnisse der Chemiestudierenden im Haupt- und Nebenfach zuzuschneiden. Es besticht weiterhin durch die ausgewogene und klare Stoffdarstellung sowie die vielen Einblicke in hochaktuelle Themen und Anwendungen. Die Beschreibung großtechnischer Verfahren ist ebenso auf den neuesten Stand gebracht worden wie die Diskussion der zunhmend wichtiger werdenden seltenen Elemente. Rohstoffe für Zukunftstechnologien, Schweißen und Löten, Magnetwerkstoffe und Wärmespeicher sind Themen neuer Exkurse. Kurze Zusammenfassungen an den Kapitelenden werden den Lernenden die Prüfungsvorbereitungen erleichtern. Setzt neue Maßstäbe in der Grundausbildung angehender Chemiker. Wird sich für Studierende in Diplom- und Bachelor-Studiengängen rasch als unentbehrlicher Begleiter durch die ersten Semester erweisen - und vielfach auch darüber hinaus. Schweizerische Laboratoriums-Zeitschrift Vorteilhaft ist die gute Einbindung der Praktikumsinhalte des Grundstudiums. Angenehm lesen sich die Exkurse, welche die allgemeinen Lehrinhalte des Buches um Themen wie „Untersuchungsmethoden" oder „Chemie in Natur, Alltag und Technik" geschickt ergänzen. Hilfreich sind die eingebundenen Übungsaufgaben am Ende der Kapitel. Nachrichten aus der Chemie Abgerundete Darstellung der Allgemeinen und Anorganischen Chemie mit vielen aktuellen Beispielen. Prof. Dr. Peter Volgnandt, Technische Hochschule Nürnberg Hervorragendes Buch, ideal zur Einführung, zeitgemäße Aufmachung. Prof. Dr. Oliver Tepner, Universität Regensburg Ich habe noch nie ein Lehrbuch mit mehr Vergnügen gelesen. In Verständlichkeit / Didaktik und in den Bezügen zur Chemie im Alltag unschlagbar. Prof. i. R. Dr. W. Kläui, Universität Düsseldorf

2 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is designed to focus on the properties of selected ... important and unusual elements and compounds. However, to understand inorganic chemistry, it is crucial to tie this knowledge to the underlying chemical principles and hence provide explanations for the existence and behavior of compounds. For this reason, almost half the chapters survey the relevant concepts of atomic theory, bonding, intermolecular forces, thermodynamics, acid-base behavior, and reduction-oxidation properties as a prelude to and preparation for the descriptive material.-Pref
