An Introductory Course in Industrial Chemistry for Freshmen  Peter Rudolf Seidl, Marcio do Nascimento Magalhães, and Cristiane Rodrigues Augusto
An introductory course in industrial chemistry whose main objective is to bring a student's outlook close to that of a chemist in industry; the class is divided into classwork, labwork, and working as a team on a project with a technical and economic component. Organization, content, and modifications are described.

Fifty-Year Trends in the Chemical Industry: What Do They Mean for Chemical Education?  Chadwick A. Tolman and George W. Parshall
This article describes some of these changes from the perspectives of the authors, whose careers span most of the preceding half-century. We describe five illustrative technological developments in the industry and changes we have seen in the industrial research laboratory, and offer viewpoints on how these changes affect the educational needs of students going into industrial careers.

To Teach Chemists Engineering  Raphael Semiat and Baruch Grinbaum
Based on our experience in R&D programs in the industry, working with chemists, engineers of all disciplines and technicians, we have encountered a problem with the ability of fresh chemists and biologists to cooperate with other professional workers on mutual problems: the lack of common language, professional limitations and ways of cooperation with coworkers.

An industrial chemistry course: Bringing teachers and industry together  Fanning, James C.; Fanning, Sybil S.
Local industry is able to supply direct examples of basic chemical principles that a teacher might use in classroom. The authors are eager to share their experiences, materials, lesson plans, etc., to prepare teachers to take their own classroom excursions to local industries.

College chemistry for business students using the issues-directed approach  Adams, David L.
While chemistry and chemical technologies are important to business, business students who have taken chemistry courses geared toward science and engineering majors have learned very little and grown disenchanted with science. An introductory course for business students was created called, "Chemical technologies in the manufacturing system."

Polymer chemistry for introductory general chemistry courses  Polymer Core Course Committee in General Chemistry
There exists a breadth in what is taught today as General or Introductory Chemistry. This breadth is typically limited by topics covered in popular texts and by specifications described by the ACS Committee on Professional Training. A new committee makes an effort to recommend polymer-related topics that can be added within these limits.
