Lecture Title

Reflections on Connections Between Teaching and Research

About the Lecture

A university professor is expected to both teach and do research, but the unique role is teaching students to do research. I have been fortunate to benefit from a synergy between teaching and research. Several of my research projects were suggested through my teaching, and several of my teaching efforts were inspired by my research. Among the topics to be discussed are: vibronic borrowing in MCD, ipso factors, proton exchange in amides, aldol condensation, nonlinear least-squares analysis of kinetics, polynomial coefficients, one-bond C–H coupling constants in OCH fragments, nucleophilic addition to a para-benzene diradical, and the IUPAC Glossary of Physical Organic Chemistry.

About the Speaker

Born in 1938 in Pittsburgh, Charles L. Perrin graduated from Harvard College in 1959 and received his PhD in 1963 from Harvard University, under the direction of the late F. H. Westheimer. He next was an NSF Postdoc with Andrew Streitwieser at UC Berkeley. In 1964 he joined the founders of the new campus at UC San Diego, where he is now Distinguished Professor of Chemistry (not emeritus). He has won awards for both teaching and research. His research spans a broad range of structural and mechanistic organic chemistry, including anomeric effects, stereoelectronic control, isotope effects, dynamic NMR, ionic solvation, symmetry of hydrogen bonds, a highly accurate NMR titration method for relative acidities, malonic anhydrides, the discovery of nucleophilic additions to a para-benzyne diradical, and the protonation of the resulting "naked" aryl anion. His teaching, not only to students but also to professional chemists, has resulted in a textbook, Mathematics For Chemists, two ACS Audio Courses, articles in J. Chem. Ed., a chapter, "Physical Organic Chemistry", in the Academic Press Encyclopedia of Physical Science and Technology, and contributions to the IUPAC Glossary of Physical Organic Chemistry.
