Most widely held works by John Ketcham
Chemical bonds( Visual )

3 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demonstrates how elements bond to form compounds by giving, taking, or sharing electrons. The differences between ionic and covalent bonds are explained by the use of scientific models and examples from nature. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Molecular architecture ; Signals from within( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 9 teaches how the shape and physical properties of a molecule is determined by the electronic structure of its elements and their bonds, using fats, oils, and optical isomers as examples. Program 10 examines how chemists use the interaction of radiation with matter to determine the nature and behavior of chemical structures
The periodic table ; Chemical bonds( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 7 shows the power of Mendeleev's Periodic Table, which predicted the properties of as yet undiscovered elements, and how modern chemists have refined the arrangement of the table and continue to refer to it. Program 8 demonstrates how elements bond to form compounds by giving, taking, or sharing electrons. Also discusses the differences between ionic and covalent bonds, through examples such as mineral crystals, explosives, and fertilizers
Proteins, structure and function ; The genetic code( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 23 teaches that proteins are large polymers built from twenty amino acids. The proteins hair, wool, silk, and enzymes are discussed. Program 24 explains how the human body manufactures complex proteins to sustain life and relates how traits and genetic "accidents" are passed on from generation to generation. The structure and role of the nucleic acids, DNA and RNA, are investigated
Molecular architecture( Visual )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roald Hoffmann explains how atoms connect to form molecules, and how the three-dimensional shape of a substance's molecules governs its chemistry
Carbon ; The age of polymers( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 21 introduces the organic chemistry of carbon compounds and explains the versatility of carbon's molecular structures. Program 22 explains what polymers are, how they are made, and why they are different. Also shows how chemists control the molecular structure to create polymers with special properties
The precious envelope ; The chemistry of the earth( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program 17 explains the chemistry of Earth's atmosphere. Theories of chemical evolution, ozone depletion, and the greenhouse effect are explained. Program 18 examines where minerals come from and why some elements are common and some are rare. Explores the abundance of elements and their uses in modern society
The world of chemistry by Nava Ben-Zvi( Visual )

2 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides highlights of key sequences and themes from the series; presents relationships of chemistry to the other sciences and everyday life
Carbon( Visual )

3 editions published between 1988 and 1995 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teaches the organic chemistry of carbon compounds and explains the versatility of carbon's molecular structures
Color by Stephen Quiller( Visual )

2 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the role of color and dyes in the development of modern chemistry and how color, in turn, helps chemists study the molecular world
Chemistry by Frank Cardulla( Visual )

3 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a unified view of the science and practice of chemistry. On-site footage of industrial processes illustrates the application of chemical reactions, while computer animation reveals the changes that take place at the molecular level. Interviews with distinguised scientists shed light on chemistry's historical foundations, recent developments and future directions
The World of chemistry( Visual )

2 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Program 1: The World of Chemistry. The world of chemistry is introduced by providing highlights of key sequences and themes from programs in the series. The relationships of chemistry to the other sciences ans to everyday life are presented. -- Program 2: Color. The search for new colors in the mid-1800s indirectly led to the development of modern chemistry. While producing dyes, early industrial chemists learned about chemical reactions and the properties of molecules. Today, color is used in science for everything from swimming pool test kits to DNA mapping research."--Conteneur
His music book by John Ketcham( )

1 edition published in 1802 and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chemistry of the earth( Visual )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains where minerals come from and why some elements are common and some rare. Also investigates the abundance of elements and their uses in modern society
Molecular architecture( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Teaches how the shape and physical properties of a molecule are determined by the electronic structure of its elements and their bonds. Reveals how living organisms distinguish between similar molecules (isomers)
The world of chemistry( Visual )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Shows the three states of matter on the gross and molecular levels and chronicles the history of the atom and its applications in new technology
Timothy Conkling and John Ketcham deed to Henry Sammis( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Deed conveying a piece of land in Suffolk County, N.Y., from the executors of David Conkling's will--Timothy Conkling and John Ketcham--to Henry Sammis

The World of chemistry( Visual )

1 edition published in 1988 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

El mundo de la química nos lleva a un recorrido por la ciencia que describe los elementos mas pequeños de la materia, su estructura, su forma y su función. Explica el orden y los elementos de la tabla periódica y las aleaciones químicas que se pueden hacer. Así cómo los compuestos que se encuentran en el medio ambiente. La estructura y función de las proteínas y del código genético
