Napoleon's Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History by Penny Le Couteur, Jay Burreson

By Penny Le Couteur, Jay Burreson

Napoleon's Buttons is the attention-grabbing account of seventeen teams of molecules that experience drastically encouraged the process historical past. those molecules supplied the impetus for early exploration, and made attainable the voyages of discovery that ensued. The molecules ended in grand feats of engineering and spurred advances in medication and legislation; they decided what we now devour, drink, and put on. a transformation as small because the place of an atom can result in huge, immense changes within the houses of a substance-which, in flip, can lead to nice old shifts.

With energetic prose and one eye on colourful and strange information, Le Couteur and Burreson supply a unique method to comprehend the shaping of civilization and the workings of our modern world.

Houben-Weyl Methods in Organic Chemistry: Organo-Fluorine by Bernd Baasner, H. Hagemann, J.-C. Tatlow

By Bernd Baasner, H. Hagemann, J.-C. Tatlow

Volume E10 Organo-Fluorine Compounds from the acclaimed Houben-Weyl sequence is now to be had in a WORKBENCH version. a different source within the box, this 5-volume set presents a accomplished treatise of the instruction and reactivity of organo-fluorine compounds provided within the top of the range layout synonymous with the Houben-Weyl sequence. Now on hand in a workbench version to provide a chief resource of targeted details at once within the lab.

Houben-Weyl Vol. E10 Organo-Fluorine Compounds is a serious survey of the tutorial and patent literature, geared up in a scientific and based manner and awarded in five volumes. In quantity E10a part A information the various diversity of fluorinating brokers used to make C-F bonds. In Volumes E10b/1 and E10b/2 part B describes intimately equipment for the synthesis of fluorinated compounds from organo-fluorine precursors (the construction block approach), whereas in part C are defined common reactions and reactivity of organo-fluorides. A accomplished index is equipped in quantity E10c.

Houben-Weyl Vol. E10 Organo-Fluorine Compounds is written through prime specialists within the box and may turn out to be a useful device for the scholar and researcher alike good into the following millennium.

Organic Synthesis: State of the Art 2007 - 2009 by Douglass Taber

By Douglass Taber

Natural synthesis is a colourful and quickly evolving box; we will now cyclize amines without delay onto alkenes. just like the first books during this sequence, Organic Synthesis: cutting-edge 2003-2005 and Organic Synthesis: state-of-the-art 2005-2007, this reference leads readers speedy to crucial contemporary advancements. years of Taber's renowned weekly on-line column, "Organic Chemistry Highlights", as featured at the site, are consolidated right here, with cumulative indices of all 3 volumes during this sequence. vital issues which are coated variety from strong new tools for C-C bond building to uneven organocatalysis and direct C-H functionalization.

This go-to reference makes a speciality of crucial contemporary advancements in natural synthesis, and incorporates a succinct research of the importance and applicability of every new man made strategy. It information and analyzes greater than twenty advanced overall syntheses, together with the Sammakia synthesis of the Macrolide RK-397, the Ley synthesis of Rapamycin, and the Kobayashi synthesis of (-)-Norzoanthamine.

Excitations in organic solids by Vladimir M. Agranovich, Gerard Czajkowski

By Vladimir M. Agranovich, Gerard Czajkowski

Over the last decade our services in nanotechnology has complex significantly. the potential of incorporating within the comparable nanostructure various natural and inorganic fabrics has spread out a promising box of study, and has significantly elevated the curiosity within the research of homes of excitations in natural fabrics. during this e-book not just the basics of Frenkel exciton and polariton conception are defined, but in addition the digital excitations and digital strength transfers in quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum dots, at surfaces, at interfaces, in skinny motion pictures, in multilayers, and in microcavities. one of the new subject matters within the publication are these dedicated to the optics of hybrid Frenkel-Wannier-Mott excitons in nanostructures, polaritons in natural microcavities together with hybrid organic-inorganic microcavities, new suggestions for natural gentle emitting units, the blending of Frenkel and charge-transfer excitons in natural quasi one-dimensional crystals, excitons and polaritons in a single and two-dimensional crystals, floor digital excitations, optical biphonons, and Fermi resonances by way of polaritons. All new phenomena defined within the publication are illustrated by means of on hand experimental observations. The ebook could be helpful for scientists operating within the box of photophysics and photochemistry of natural solids (for instance, natural light-emitting units and sunlight cells), and for college kids who're getting into this box. it really is partially according to a booklet by means of the writer written in 1968 - "Theory of Excitons" - in Russian. but the new e-book contains in basic terms five chapters from this model, all of which were up-to-date. the ten new chapters include discussions of latest phenomena, their concept and their experimental observations.

Polymer Synthesis: Theory and Practice by Dietrich Braun

By Dietrich Braun

Emphasis is on a vast description of the final tools and methods for the synthesis, amendment and characterization of macromolecules. those extra basic chapters should be supplemented by means of chosen and distinctive experiments. as well as the preparative features, the ebook additionally supplies the reader an influence at the relation of chemical structure and morphology of Polymers to their homes, in addition to on their software parts. hence, an extra textbook are usually not wanted on the way to comprehend the experiments.

The fifth version comprises a variety of alterations: in recent times, so-called practical polymers that have distinctive electric, digital, optical and organic houses, have won progressively more in curiosity. This textbook was once hence supplemented via recipes which describe the synthesis of those fabrics in a brand new bankruptcy "Functional polymers". including new experiments in bankruptcy 3,4 and five the ebook now includes greater than one hundred twenty recipes that describe a variety of macromolecules.

From the reports of contemporary editions:

"This is a wonderful e-book for all polymer chemists engaged in synthesis examine reports and schooling. it's educationally sound and has very good laboratory artificial examples. the basics are good performed for the educating of scholars and references are resonably updated. As in prior matters, there are sections facing an advent; constitution and nomenclature; equipment and methods for synthesis, characterization, processing and amendment of polymers.

....The authors have famous the next adjustments from past variants- a brand new part on correlations of constitution, morphology and homes; revision and expansion of different estate and characterization techniques; extra new experiments comparable to managed radical polymerization; enzymatic polymerizations; microelmulsions; and electric accomplishing polymers.

This is a top quality textbook at a cheap fee and will be regarded as an appropriate reference for all engaged in artificial components of polymer research." (Eli M. Pearce, Polytechnic college, Brooklyn, long island, USA)
