Author biography

Steve Langford received his BSc(Hons) and PhD from the University of Sydney. After postdoctoral work in the UK under the auspices of a Ramsay Memorial Fellowship, and at the University of New South Wales as an ARC Postdoctoral Fellow, he joined the School of Chemistry at Monash University in 1998. Early on, he became 1st Year Chemistry Coordinator and undertook all aspects of curriculum development. He teaches all aspects of organic and supramolecular chemistry in Monash’s undergraduate program and is known for his enthusiastic and entertaining teaching style. In 2005 Dr Langford was awarded the Dean’s Excellence in Science Teaching Award and was also promoted to Associate Professor. He is also the winner of a Carrick Citation Award for 2006. His research interests focus on concept transfers from nature, particularly in the areas of photosynthesis and genetic encoding. Using this knowledge his research is aimed at understanding and treating motor neuron disease and in molecular electronics applications. He has published over 70 research articles and was awarded a 2006 Young Investigator Award by the Society of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines. At present, he is Chair of Organic Chemistry.

Dalius S. Sagatys received his BSc(Hons) degree in chemistry from the University of Queensland (Brisbane) and his PhD from the Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago) in 1970. After three years as Joliot Curie Fellow of the Commissariat á L’Energie Atomique, Université de Paris VII (Paris), he worked at the International Patents Institute in Rijswijk, Holland and from there returned to Brisbane where he joined the then Queensland Institute of Technology in 1982. From the beginning he became interested in the design and implementation of chemistry courses for very different student requirements such as those in the fields of nursing, engineering and the built environment as well as developing a chemistry bridging course for students with no chemistry background at all. His research interests have been centred on the synthesis and structure determination of complexes of the Group 15 elements specifically arsenic, antimony and bismuth.

Adrian George from the University of Sydney has joined the Australian author team for the 3rd edition. Adrian’s role has been to review content across the general and organic chemistry chapters, to ensure seamless integration of examples, application and references.
