About the Author:

Donald L. Pavia earned his BS degree in chemistry from Reed College and his PhD in organic chemistry from Yale University. In 1970, he joined the faculty at Western Washington University as Assistant Professor and now holds the rank of Professor. He is the coauthor of two organic laboratory books that include techniques and experiments: INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC LABORATORY TECHNIQUES: A MICROSCALE APPROACH, 4e (Brooks/Cole), and INTRODUCTION TO LABORATORY TECHNIQUES: A SMALL-SCALE APPROACH, 2e (Brooks/Cole), as well as MICROSCALE AND MACROSCALE TECHNIQUES IN THE ORGANIC LABORATORY (Brooks/Cole), which highlights techniques to be used with a faculty member's own experiments. Professor Pavia's research interests center on the synthesis and reactions of valence tautomeric and photochromic compounds, especially pyrylium-3-oxide tautomers. Autoxidations are a special interest. His other interests include the use of computers in teaching organic chemistry, both for lecture presentation and for the simulation of laboratories. He is the author of several computer programs. One such program is SQUALOR (Simulated Qualitative Organic Analysis) for which he won the 1986 EDUCOM/NCRIPTAL award. The program is designed for teaching the methods for solving organic unknowns. Professor Pavia's personal interests include classical music, opera, woodworking, metalworking, and antique trains. He and his wife, Neva-Jean, have three children.

Gary M. Lampman earned his BS degree in chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles, and his PhD in organic chemistry from the University of Washington. In 1964, he joined the faculty at Western Washington University as Assistant Professor, rising to Professor in 1973. He received the Outstanding Teaching Award for the College of Arts and Sciences in 1976. Teaching has always been an important part of his life. Contact with students invigorates him. He is the coauthor of two organic laboratory books that include techniques and experiments: INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC LABORATORY TECHNIQUES: A MICROSCALE APPROACH, 4e (Brooks/Cole), and INTRODUCTION TO LABORATORY TECHNIQUES: A SMALL-SCALE APPROACH, 2e (Brooks/Cole), as well as MICROSCALE AND MACROSCALE TECHNIQUES IN THE ORGANIC LABORATORY (Brooks/Cole), which highlights techniques to be used with a faculty member's own experiments. Professor Lampman also is the author of the computer program for teaching organic nomenclature: ORGANIC NOMENCLATURE: AN INTRODUCTION TO THE IUPAC SYSTEM. His research interests center on synthetic methods involving the reaction of free radicals on unsaturated cobaloximes (vitamin B12 model compounds), synthesis of strained small ring compounds, and chemical education. He is the author of 18 papers in these areas. He is a member of the American Chemical Society (Organic and Chemical Education divisions), Sigma Xi, and the Washington College Chemistry Teachers Association.

George S. Kriz is Professor of Chemistry at Western Washington University. He earned his B.S. degree in chemistry from the University of California, and his Ph.D. from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN. In 1967 he joined the faculty at Western Washington University. He served as the General Chair of the 17th Biennial Conference on Chemical Education for 2001-2002. Professor Kriz was honored with the Peter J. Elich Excellence in Teaching Award (College of Arts and Sciences), Western Washington University, in 2000.

He is the co-author with Donald Pavia, Gary Lampman and Randall Engel of two organic laboratory books that include both techniques and experiments: INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC LABORATORY TECHNIQUES: A MICROSCALE APPROACH, Fourth Edition (Brooks/Cole, 2007), and INTRODUCTION TO LABORATORY TECHNIQUES: A SMALL-SCALE APPROACH, Second Edition (Brooks/Cole, 2005). Their book, MICROSCALE AND MACROSCALE TECHNIQUES IN THE ORGANIC LABORATORY (Brooks/Cole, 2002), includes techniques only, and can be used with a faculty member's own experiments. He is a co-author, with Donald Pavia and Gary Lampman, of an organic spectroscopy book INTRODUCTION TO SPECTROSCOPY, Third Edition (Brooks/Cole, 2001).

Professors Kriz's research interests include: developing new experiments for the organic chemistry laboratory; chemical education and the teaching of chemistry courses for general-understanding audiences; and determination of the structures of natural products using spectroscopic methods.

George and his wife Carolyn have two children, Kenneth and Michelle, and two step-children, Sonja and Erik. Hobbies and special interests include George's musical talents, singing (bass) in a classical choral music ensemble, while also being a devoted fan of the Seattle Mariners. George enjoys outdoor activities including golf and fishing, swimming and traveling.
