  • 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...

  • Enzymatic polymerization of phenolic compounds by oxidoreductasesby Mohamed Ghoul; Latifa Chebil

    Springer 2012; US$ 49.95

    The enzymatic polymerization of phenolic compounds continues to generate interest in several diverse fields such as food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. The use of these compounds for their antioxidant properties is limited by their low solubility and thermal stability. Polymerization can improve their solubility and their thermal stability thus creating... more...
