Shifting and Rearranging: Physical Methods and the Transformation of Modern Chemistry
"In the second half of the twentieth century, chemistry underwent a profound transformation. Its object of examination, the chemical substance, was transmuted into abstract structure; its most important method, the chemical reaction, was supplemented by physical methods; and its practitioner, the chemist, was partially displaced by technical instruments. At the center of this transformation were physical methods. As much as shifts of data in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and molecular rearrangements in mass spectrometry were used to interpret the results obtained by these techniques, so their adoption in chemistry was bound to shifts and fundamental rearrangements of the discipline." (From the Preface)
