Polymers are huge molecules that are encountered in nature as well as in our modern technology. This book introduces students to polymers, their properties, and some of the many ways polymers are found in the modern world. Polymers are created through chemical reactions known as polymerizations, and the majority are produced through two basic reaction types. The first type of polymerization reaction is known as a condensation polymerization. The second type of reaction is known as chain-growth polymerization. Since many polymers are made of long, flexible chains, they become easily tangled, much like a bowl of cooked spaghetti. The disordered tangling of the polymer chains create what is known as an amorphous structure. Amorphous polymers are typically transparent and much easier to melt to make materials like kitchen cling film.

3D Printing with Biomaterials: Towards a Sustainable and Circular Economy.
  Van Wijk, A.J.M/ 9781614994855/ Price:EUR 35.00
Book Cover Additive manufacturing or 3D printing, manufacturing a product layer by layer, offers large design freedom and faster product development cycles, as well as low startup cost of production, on-demand production and local production. In principle, any product could be made by additive manufacturing. Even food and living organic cells can be printed. We can create, design and manufacture what we want at the location we want. 3D printing will create a revolution in manufacturing, a real paradigm change. 3D printing holds the promise to manufacture with less waste and energy. We can print metals, ceramics, sand, synthetic materials such as plastics, food or living cells. However, the production of plastics is nowadays based on fossil fuels. And that¡¦s where we witness a paradigm change too. The production of these synthetic materials can be based also on biomaterials with biomass as feedstock. A wealth of new and innovative products are emerging when we combine these two paradigm changes: 3D printing and biomaterials. Moreover, the combination of 3D printing with biomaterials holds the promise to realize a truly sustainable and circular economy.

Book Cover Ours is an age of incredible breakthrough in science and technology. Man has blazed a trail into outer space, built 'thinking machines' and made a giant progress, but yet he is not fully aware of what exactly is inside the atom. The nucleus, however remains somewhat a riddle. How are the nucleons packed within a tiny nucleus? What is the nature of nuclear force? How can the nucleus be smashed open to harness the tremendous energy, it yields? The master theorists and experimenters have designed and built huge machines called accelerators to probe into the nucleus and solve nuclear mysteries. Particle science has gained prominence and has emerged as exciting field of research. It is imperative, therefore, that the young people interested in science read this book. It is our firm belief that this book will also help many with the crucial choice-their further studies and future occupation. We feel this will make very interesting reading without unnecessarily taxing the mind, but at the same time imparting the knowledge required to complement a prescribed course on the topic.

SD04-411 High Temperature Thermodynamic Studies on the Transuranium Oxides and Their Solid Solutions.
  Gotcu-Freis, Petronela/ 9781607507796/ Price:EUR 65.00
A growing demand for energy supply worldwide, coupled with the necessity to reduce emission of greenhouse gases, has led to a renewed interest in nuclear energy as an alternative to fossil fuels for electricity production in the last years. One of the main drawbacks to the development of nuclear energy as a power source has traditionally been the problem of waste disposal. Thermal reactors have a limited capability to burn the minor actinides (such as Np, Am and Cm) which are formed by neutron capture under irradiation and represent the main source of today's nuclear waste problem. Two waste management options are currently available: spent fuel is either conditioned for final storage or it is recycled to extract reusable materials like uranium and plutonium before the remaining materials are vitrified for storage. This book explores a third option: the partitioning of minor actinides from the spent fuel, followed by their transmutation to produce short-lived fission products. Such technologies exploit the waste in a practical and valuable way. The book presents the high-temperature thermodynamic studies of the transuranium oxides and their solid solutions, obtained from the vapor pressure measurements at high temperatures on actinide oxide samples using a Knudsen cell coupled with a mass spectrometer. The experimental work was complemented by thermodynamic evaluations and modelling. Each chapter is dedicated to a systematic study on actinide oxide and constitutes a paper which has been already published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.

VD04-245 Computer Aided Process and Product Engineering, 2-Vols/Set.
  Puigjaner, Luis/ 9783527308040/ Price:US$ 415.00
Computer aided process engineering (CAPE) tools have been very successfully used in process design and product engineering for a long time. In particular, simulation and modelling tools have enabled engineers to analyse and understand the behaviour of selected processes prior to building actual plants. CAPE tools are also widely applied to monitor and optimize the operating conditions of existing plants, thus minimizing raw materials and energy usage, and reducing wastes and emissions. The aim of design or retrofit of chemical processes is to produce profitably products that satisfy the societal needs, ensuring safe and reliable operation of each process, as well as minimising any effects on the environment. This involves the conceptual design or retrofit of plants and processes, the investigation of novel manufacturing approaches. Interactions between the process and the control system operability, manufacturability, environment protection and safety are key issues that can only be addressed by proper integration of several tools.

VD04-243 Handbook of Homogeneous Hydrogenation, The., 3-Vols/Set.
  de Vries, Johannes G./ 9783527311613/ Price:US$ 905.00
Hydrogenation is one of the most important and widely used reactions in chemistry. It is indispensable for pharmaceutical, agrochemical and fine chemical industry, while numerous other applications are to be found in academia and industrial chemistry. Its significance is also reflected in the fact that the 2001 Noble Prize was awarded to Knowles and Noyori -- two pioneers in the field. This multi-volume handbook is the first to include all hydrogenation reactions catalyzed by soluble transition metal-based catalysts. As such, it presents in 25 clearly structured chapters the catalysts, the scope of their application, mechanistic aspects, asymmetric methods, combinatorials catalysis, recycling methods and industrial examples. The 36 authors adopt an applied approach, emphasizing those aspects important for industrial use. Following an historic introduction and a look at the mechanism of homogeneous hydrogenation, the book goes on to deal with kinetics, spectroscopic techniques and the homogeneous hydrogenation of alkenes, alkynes, dienes, aldehydes, ketones, esters and anhydrides. Further chapters are devoted to aromatic and heteroaromatic hydrogenation, dehalogenation reactions, homogeneous polymer, transfer and diastereoselective hydrogenations. Five chapters deal with asymmetric hydrogenations, and the whole is rounded off with a look at such techniques as high throughput experimentation and ligand libraries, two-phase aqueous hydrogenations, immobilization and catalyst deactivation. With some 2,000 illustrations and 50 tables, this is a must-have for everyone working in the chemicals and pharmaceutical industries, as well as for graduate students in chemistry.

VD04-226 Separations for the Nuclear Fuel Cycle in the 21st Century.
  Lumetta, Gregg J./ 9780841239319/ Price:US$ 355.00
This book constitutes the proceedings from a symposium titled Separations for the Nuclear Fuel Cycle in the 21st Century which was held in March 2004. This symposium focused on assessing the current state-of-the art in nuclear separations science and technology, and on identifying R&D directions required to enable nuclear separations to meet 21st Century demands for waste minimization, environment protection, safety, and security. Several recent developments have elevated the importance of this topic including: the potential effects of global warming caused by carbon dioxide emissions from burning of fossil fuels; rising demand for the electric power that is needed to raise the global standard of living; geopolitical issues such as those related to nuclear proliferation and nuclear terrorism. Although expansion of fission-based nuclear power would help reduce the potential for global warming, future development of the nuclear fuel cycle must be weighed against the issues of proliferation and management of irradiated fuel. Separations will play a central role in addressing these issues. The subject matter of this book is organized into five topical areas. These are: 1) current trends and direction to the future, 2) aqueous processing, 3) emerging separations systems, 4) actinide/lanthanide separations, and 5) solution-solid interactions. This collection of papers provides a snapshot of the current state of nuclear separations chemistry and can be used to help guide future directions in this critical technological field.

SD04-342 Direct Oxidation of Benzene to Phenol: Investigation of the Active Iron Species in [FE, AL]MFI Catalysts by 57 FE Mossbauer Spectroscopy.
  Taboada, Jerome B./ 9781586036911/ Price:EUR 55.00
Fe-containing ZSM-5 zeolite, or [Fe,Al]MFI, is known to catalyse various chemical reactions. Recently, it has gained increasing attention for its catalytic performance in the direct oxidation of benzene to phenol, using N2O as oxidant (BTOP). However, despite extensive efforts, the nature of the active sites in the [Fe,Al]MFI catalyst for the BTOP reaction is still largely unknown. This is mainly due to various synthesis and activation methods of [Fe,Al]MFI catalysts that have led to different interpretations. Nevertheless, there seems to be a consensus in open literature that steam-treatment of isomorphously substituted [Fe,Al]MFI zeolite forms a particular extra-framework iron species that is catalytically active in the BTOP reaction. In situ 57Fe Mossbauer studies show that there are several active sites for the direct oxidation of benzene to phenol. These active sites are most likely small clusters of iron species with low nuclearity (e.g. enzyme-like systems). Subjecting the [Fe,Al]MFI catalysts to several controlled treatments confirms that there is a distribution of several extra-framework iron species, even at ppm levels. Thus, this heterogeneous catalyst is simply heterogeneous in terms of the extra-framework iron species formed after steam-treatment, which makes it difficult to establish a direct relationship between structure and activity in the BTOP reaction.
SD04-339 Biwic 2006 13th International Workshop on Industrial Crystallization.
  Jansens, P. J./ 9781586036584/ Price:EUR 88.00
Industrial Crystallization continues to be a fertile but also a rapidly changing field of research. The changes are the consequence of a shift of focus in industry where rapid expansion occurs in fine chemicals, food and pharmaceuticals. In research we see an increasing attention for manipulation of product quality with an emphasis on polymorphism and nano-particles, a shift of focus from design of large continuous dedicated crystallizers to control of batch-wise operated basic equipment, an increasing attention for modeling and optimization of precipitation and anti-solvent crystallization processes and a concentration on crystallization of organic molecular compounds instead of inorganic salts. The successful series of BIWIC workshops on industrial crystallization were initiated and are to this day coordinated by Professor Joachim Ulrich. By allowing this workshop to travel over the world from Halle in Germany to Rouen in France to Kyongju in South Korea and to Delft in the Netherlands, the BIWIC workshop has become a truly international forum for scientific debate without losing its informal atmosphere.

VD04-230 Cyclic Separating Reactors.
  Silveston, Peter/ 9781405131568/ Price:US$ 308.00
Cyclic Separating Reactors is a critical examination of the literature covering periodically operated separating reactors incorporating an adsorbent as well as a catalyst, aiming to establish the magnitude of performance improvement available with this type of reactor compared to systems in which the reactor and separator are separate units. The adequacy of present models is considered by comparison of simulation and experimental studies, and gaps in understanding or experimental verification of model predictions are identified. Separating reactors, including chromatographic reactors and pressure swing reactors, are an expeditious means of process intensification, reducing both capital and operating costs, particularly where reactions are equilibrium limited. For this reason, cyclically operating separating reactors are attracting considerable interest across the range of chemical manufacturing industries, so this book is a timely and valuable summary of the literature available to the engineer. Following an introduction to multifunctional reactors and to periodic reactor operation, Cyclic Separating Reactors covers both chromatographic and pressure swing adsorption reactors, and is written for chemical engineers in both industry and academe. * First book to critically examine the literature surrounding Cyclically Operating Separating Reactors providing a straightforward entry to, and detailed appraisal of, the literature, so the reader does not have to engage in an expensive and time consuming literature review * Evaluates current models and understanding to give the engineer clear information on what performance can be expected of these reactors and where current information needs to be augmented when designing systems for commercial operation.

SD04-325 Radiation Inactivation of Bioterrorism Agents.
  Gazso, L. G./ 9781586034887/ Price:EUR 116.00
The use of and problems associated with biological weapons have been of concern to NATO and non-NATO military organizations for many years. Until recently, most of the readily available literature addressed the military issues associated with the possible use of biological weapons on the battlefield, the medical effects of the various agents, and what was known about medical prophylaxis and treatments. Information on other needed countermeasures, such as decontamination, or public health issues associated with exposure of civilian populations, were largely overlooked. This perspective changed dramatically after the contamination of the US Mail system with powdered anthrax spores. Among the significant problems and defensive weaknesses that the anthrax attack revealed was the importance, but lack of established industrial-scale decontamination methods for large volumes of heterogeneous objects or for complex physical environments. Ultimately, these two microbial decontamination problems were solved in very different ways. The contaminated mail was treated with ionizing radiation while the contaminated government buildings were treated with vapor / gas-phase chemicals. Both the decontamination of the mail and establishing a process for prophylactic treatment of the mail, were solved relatively quickly. This was in large part due to the robust radiation biology and technical base derived from the industrial use of ionizing radiation. Contributing to the speed of response was the fact that the attack occurred within the United States and in the 'home town' of many of the technical experts and decision makers, allowing official response to be coordinated rapidly.
SD04-314 Cheminformatics Developments: History, Reviews, and Current Research.
  Noordik, J.H./ 9781586034504/ Price:EUR 160.00
The developments in information technology in the last decades of the 20th century have fundamentally changed the way in which scientific information is being communicated and used. A scientific discipline where the impact of these changes has been particularly significant is (bio)chemistry. Up to less than 25 years ago, molecular modeling was a hardly-existent computational chemistry niche, only practiced at those few institutes that could afford the very expensive specialised hardware. Also rapid access to not only the primary literature but, possibly even more importantly, to the factual primary data about millions of chemical compounds, to reactions, structures, and spectra, and to the genomic data of various organisms including humans, can only be provided by digital storage and retrieval techniques. This book seeks to document some key developments in computerized chemical information in the last two decades of the past century. To put the developments into a historic perspective, the three opening chapters present review articles on the founding, the history, and the operation of three different representative European computer chemistry institutes. These introductory chapters are personal accounts of history and development and clearly show the different approaches and aims in setting up these (academic) research and/or service facilities for computer-aided chemistry and cheminformatics.

Fundamentals of Oil Chemistry: Nature of Asphaltenes and Resins.
  Unger, F.G./ 9781898326946/ Price:¢G 80.00
The aim of this book is to take the science of oil chemistry from a dead end where it was placed by the attempts to explain the nature of oil colloidal particles on the basis of the inefficient 'symbiosis' of electro-chemical considerations and organic chemistry. For this purpose, the authors apply, to oil chemistry, quantum mechanics, homolytic dissociation, discovered by Homberg in 1900, and critically review the results of physical methods of chemical analysis in application to oil problems. In conclusion, they clarify the main differences between oil-like systems and objects in organic and in organic chemistry, i.e. they formulate the fundamental aspects of oil chemistry. It is hoped that the book will be of interest to experts working in the area of oil and allied sciences, i.e. geochemistry, processing of oil and other natural organic substances, experts in storage, application, transport and trading with oil products, oils and derivatives in the industry of coal gasification, peat, shale, in road construction and waterproofing of installations. The book may prove to be very useful to students of organic chemistry in examining homolytic phenomena and also all readers concerned with oil chemistry.
Fatigue Crack Propagation and Delamination Growth in Glare.
  Alderliesten, R./ 9789040725883/ Price:EUR 44.00
This thesis presents the investigation into the fatigue crack propagation behaviour and delamination growth behaviour of the Fibre Metal Laminate Glare. This phenomenon is studied for constant-amplitude loading, which is significant for fatigue loading of aircraft pressurized fuselages. As defined in the first chapter, the objective of the investigation is twofold: Firtst, to obtain a clear understanding and a detailed characterisation of the failure mechanisms in Glare under fatigue loading, and second, to obtain an accurate prediction model for fatigue crack propagation in Glare accounting for fibre bridging and delamination. The major concept in this thesis is that the stress intensity at a crack tip in the metal layers of a Fibre Metal Laminate is the factor determining the extension of that crack under cyclic loading. This means that the stress intensity factor can be described with Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics, including the contribution of the fibre layers and the with the crack growth associated delamination behaviour. This investigation covers the theoretical analysis of the crack growth phenomenon and a complementary experimental programme to support and validate the new prediction model. This investigation has been restricted to through cracks with the same crack length in all metal layers.

VD04-146 In-Situ Spectroscopy of Catalysts.
  Weckhuyse, B. M./ 9781588830265/ Price:US$ 399.00
Probing events that occur in a catalyst under working conditions is a very important topic in many fields of chemistry. In order to identify reaction intermediates and active sites in a working catalyst, the development of characterization techniques, the design and construction of appropriate in-situ cells and reactor probes are inevitable. Various types of spectroscopy, diffraction methods and scattering techniques can be used to achieve the ultimate goal of determining and understanding quantitative structure/composition-activity/selectivity relationships in catalysts. Therefore, such detailed knowledge about the active sites should enable scientists to design - in a rational way - new and efficient catalysts for sustainable production of bulk and fine chemicals as well as for the removal of harmful compounds in industrial catalytic processes. This book aims to give an overview of the different characterization techniques currently available for performing in-situ studies on catalytic materials. Both the possibilities and limitations are illustrated by many case studies. This is a unique book providing a comprehensive coverage of the latest developments in this very important and rapidly expanding field of catalysis.

SD04-313 Research on Physics Education : Proceedings of the International School of Physics Enrico Fermi Course Clvi 156.
  Redish, E. F./ 9781586034252/ Price:EUR 200.00
Physics Education research is a young field with a strong tradition in many countries. However, it has only recently received full recognition of its specificity and relevance for the growth and improvement of the culture of Physics in contemporary Society for different levels and populations. This may be due on one side to the fact that teaching, therefore education, is part of the job of university researchers and it has often been implicitly assumed that the competences required for good research activity also guarantee good teaching practice. On the other side, and perhaps more important, is the fact that the problems to be afforded in doing research in education are complex problems that require a knowledge base not restricted to the disciplinary physics knowledge but enlarged to include cognitive science, communication science, history and philosophy. The topics discussed here look at some of the facets of the problem by considering the interplay of the development of cognitive models for learning Physics with some reflections on the Physics contents for contemporary and future society with the analysis of teaching strategies and the role of experiments the issue of assessment and cultural aspects. Information is also given on the organizations involved in connecting various aspects of Physics Education: the International Commission on Physics Education, the European Physical Society and the European Physics Education Network.

  Robinson, B. H./ 9781586033828/ Price:EUR 142.00
Human aging is perhaps the most complex and important subject that will be facing science and societies in the next century. People seem to be living longer and remaining more active than their parents and grandparents, caused by to social and demographic shifts that must be accommodated by society. On the other hand it presents perplexing questions about the underlying processes and determinants of healthy aging. This book gives a design for research that will increase our understanding of the factors that influence healthy aging and can lead to improvements in reducing the levels of disability in the population. Its focus is on bio-behavioural and psychological factors contributing to healthy aging. Since human aging is determined by many interacting conditions inside and outside of the organism, research should concentrate on ecological relationships between the human organism and its social and physical environment. Not only individual characteristics associated with aging are discussed in this book, but also their impacts on society. The information presented in ¡¥Aging in Europe¡¦ has not been available in any single source before. In many ways this book provides a model of gaining knowledge through cooperation that should guide us in the next century and beyond.
