Abstract

Virtually all recent textbooks for elementary organic chemistry courses now offer substantial components of physical organic chemistry, an emerging discipline first known by that name in 1940. It may come as a surprise to learn of an elementary textbook using many physical principles was published in 1935 by Howard J. Lucas of the California Institute of Technology. A comparison will be made of the subject matter of the Lucas book with two highly respected texts of about the same period, written by Paul Karrer and Louis and Mary Fieser.
