William A. Soliman, PhD, brings forth a work which
unifies chemistry with industry, economics, and
chemical education. Dr. Soliman demonstrates the
German influence on chemistry and the connections
with the present day biotechnology, defense and
petroleum industries. While examining how German
chemists such as Liebig transformed the teaching of
chemistry, Soliman demonstrates the effects of this
to present day knowledge transfer at the university
chemistry level and then takes this a step further by
examining how the economics within various countries
have been unquestionably influenced by chemical
knowledge. Arguably, biotechnology, petroleum, and
the defense industries are among the most important
industries in the 21st century. Understanding which
countries are major influencers in these industries
will help us understand how chemical education can
transform countries into lucrative countries.
Indeed, with China and India at the forefront of
today's economic and scientific developments,
chemistry will play an important role in which
countries are the major superpowers in the centuries
