Research Interests Organic chemistry and physical organic chemistry; stereochemistry and mechanisms of thermal reactions of simple hydrocarbons. Education A. Kenan Jr. Research Focus Creditable mechanistic descriptions to account for simple organic chemical reactions remain elusive in spite of serious efforts to gain them.

Detailed experimental characterizations of reactions exhibiting more than one reaction path from reactant to product can contribute to attaining fresh mechanistic insights on just how specific transformations take place. Examples of published work representative of our efforts along these lines include studies of thermal stereomutations of cyclopropanes, structural isomerizations of vinylcyclopropanes to cyclopentenes and vinylcyclobutanes to cyclohexenes, and degenerate isomerizations of cycloalka-1,3-dienes.

Rather, it is because of an estate bequest.

Norris died in ; his wife died in The bequest was used initially to fund an annual award for outstanding achievement in chemistry teaching. The first was given in , and the Norris education award has been granted annually ever since.

But in , the bequest had grown so large that a committee was formed to consider additional ways to make good use of the money. The establishment of a second annual award, this time in physical organic chemistry, was a result. By the time the second Norris Award was established, physical organic chemistry had become a hot area of research.

Bartlett of Harvard University, helped enhance the status of physical organic chemistry.

The conference continues today, noted Edward M. Arnett of Duke University. Physical organic chemistry gained greater legitimacy as the importance of its research achievements became increasingly apparent, and the Norris Award tracked that progress.

Hammett of Columbia University. Hammett became the second Norris awardee. In , he developed the Hammett equation, relating reaction rates to equilibrium constants for some aromatic reactions.

With the recent flowering of the organic synthesis field, physical organic chemistry has seemed to be shrinking or perhaps is just being absorbed into the toolkit of the synthetic chemist. The only Nobel Prize that can be reasonably attributed to a physical organic chemist is the award to George Olah, although Jeffrey I. Seeman has recently made a strong case that R.

Woodward was actually a physical organic chemist in disguise I. James Flack Norris was an early physical organic chemist, before the discipline received its name.

This book provides insight into the fundamentals of the field, and each chapter is devoted to a major discovery or to noted physical organic chemists, including Paul Schleyer, William Doering, and Glen A. Other books in this series. Free Radicals in Foods Michael J.
