  • The Rudolf Mössbauer Storyby Michael Kalvius; Paul Kienle

    Springer 2012; US$ 89.95

    The "Rudolf Mossbauer Story" recounts the history of the discovery of the "Mossbauer Effect" in 1958 by Rudolf Mossbauer as a graduate student of Heinz Maier-Leibnitz for which he received the Nobel Prize in 1961 when he was 32 years old. The development of numerous applications of the Mossbauer Effect in many fields of sciences... more...

  • Smart Membrane Materials and Systemsby Liang-Yin Chu

    Springer 2011; US$ 179.00

    "Smart Membrane Materials and Systems: From Flat Membranes to Microcapsule Membranes" comprehensively and systematically treats modern understanding of smart or intelligent membranes with environmental stimuli-responsive functions. The contents range from flat membranes to microcapsule membranes with various response properties, such as thermo-response,... more...

  • Specific Intermolecular Interactions of Organic Compoundsby Alexei K. Baev

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    Prof. Baev presents in his book the development of the thermodynamic theory of specific intermolecular interactions for a wide spectrum of organic compounds: ethers, ketones, alcohols, carboxylic acids, and hydrocarbons. The fundamentals of an unconventional approach to the theory of H-bonding and specific interactions are formulated based on a concept... more...

  • A Prehistory of Polymer Scienceby Gary Patterson

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    Polymer science is now an active and thriving community of scientists, engineers and technologists, but there was a time, not so long ago, when there was no such community. The prehistory of polymer science helps to provide key insights into current issues and historical problems. The story will be divided into an ancient period ( from Greek times... more...

  • Two Studies in Gas-Phase Ion Spectroscopyby Matthew J. Simpson

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis Matthew Simpson reportstwo areas of work in gas ion spectroscopy, each investigation in itself worthy of a PhD. The first study uses tunable vacuum-ultraviolet radiation from a synchrotron to identify negative ions from twenty four photoexcited polyatomic molecules in the gas phase. From these experiments, Matthew collects a vast amount... more...

  • Fluorescent Proteins Iby Gregor Jung

    Springer 2011; US$ 309.00

    Fluorescent proteins are intimately connected to research in the life sciences. Tagging of gene products with fluorescent proteins has revolutionized all areas of biosciences, ranging from fundamental biochemistry to clinical oncology, to environmental research. The discovery of the Green Fluorescent Protein, its first, seminal application and the... more...

  • Late Transition Metal-Carboryne Complexesby Zaozao Qiu

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Zaozao Qiu shows in this thesis that transition metals can mediate or catalyze the cycloaddition or coupling reactions of carboryne with alkynes or alkenes to afford benzocarboranes, alkenylcarboranes or dihydrobenzocarboranes. These results represent powerful strategies to assemble useful complex molecules from very simple precursors in a single operation.... more...

  • Ultrasonic Coal-Wash for De-Ashing and De-Sulfurizationby B. Ambedkar

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    This study focuses on the physical aspects of ultrasonic de-ashing and de-sulfurization, such as cavitation, streaming and their combined effects. Ambedkar Balraj proposes an ultrasound-assisted coal particle breakage mechanism and explores aqueous and solvent-based ultrasonic techniques for de-ashing and de-sulfurization. Ambedkar designs a Taguchi... more...

  • High- and Low-Valent tris-N-Heterocyclic Carbene Iron Complexesby Carola S. Vogel

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Carola Vogel's PhD thesis focuses on the synthesis, and structural and spectroscopic characterization of the first high valent iron nitride complexes. In her interdisciplinary and collaborative research Carola also describes the reactivity studies of a unique iron (V) nitride complex with water. These studies show that quantitative yields of ammonia... more...
