  • A Network-Based Approach to Cell Metabolismby Oriol Güell

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.82

    This thesis uses a systems-level approach to study the cellular metabolism, unveiling new mechanisms and responses that were impossible to reach with traditional reductionists procedures. The results reported here have a potential application in areas like metabolic engineering and disease treatment. They could also be used in determining the accuracy... more...

  • Advances in Biomembranes and Lipid Self-Assemblyby Ales Iglic; Ana Garcia-Sáez; Michael Rappolt

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 227.00

    Advances in Biomembranes and Lipid Self-Assembly, Volume 26, formerly titled Advances in Planar Lipid Bilayers and Liposomes, provides a global platform for a broad community of experimental and theoretical researchers studying cell membranes, lipid model membranes, and lipid self-assemblies from the micro- to the nanoscale. Chapters in this new... more...

  • Introduction to Grapheneby Challa Vijaya Kumar; Ajith Pattammattel

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 99.95

    Introduction to Graphene: Chemical and Biochemical Applications addresses a broad range of graphene research, including the prehistory and background of graphene, synthetic approaches, characterization techniques, composites/derivatives, inorganic graphene analogues, and applications of graphene. The book’s special emphasis on solution chemistry... more...

  • Mechanics of Liquid Nano- and Microdispersed Magnetic Mediaby V. M. Polunin; A. M. Storozhenko; P.A. Ryapolov

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 199.95

    This book offers unique coverage of the mechanical properties of nano- and micro-dispersed magnetic fluids. Magnetic fluids are artificially created materials that do not exist in the nature. Researchers developing materials and devices are keenly interested in their "mutually exclusive" properties including fluidity, compressibility, and the ability... more...

  • Studies on the Plasmon-Induced Photoexcitation Processes of Molecules on Metal Surfacesby Fumika Nagasawa; Kei Murakoshi

    Springer Japan 2017; US$ 102.82

    This thesis proposes a novel way to catch light energy using an ultrasmall nanostructure. The author has developed photon-materials systems to open the way for novel photoexcitation processes based on the findings obtained from in-situ observation of the systems in which localized surface plasmon (LSP) and molecules interact strongly. The highly ordered... more...

  • Chemical Complexityby Alexander S. Mikhailov; Gerhard Ertl

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 118.19

    This book provides an outline of theoretical concepts and their experimental verification in studies of self-organization phenomena in chemical systems, as they emerged in the mid-20th century and have evolved since. Presenting essays on selected topics, it was prepared by authors who have made profound contributions to the field. Traditionally, physical... more...

  • 30th International Symposium on Shock Waves 1by Gabi Ben-Dor; Oren Sadot; Ozer Igra

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 412.53

    These proceedings collect the papers presented at the 30th International Symposium on Shock Waves (ISSW30), which was held in Tel-Aviv Israel from July 19 to July 24, 2015.

  • Multifunctional Molecular Magnets Based on Octacyanidometalatesby Kenta Imoto

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 82.73

    This thesis demonstrates the novel magnetic functionalities in cyanido-bridged metal assemblies, and as such appeals to readers in the field of materials science. The utilization of octacyanidometalates as building blocks enables the observation of (i) photo-induced magnetization due to a light-induced spin-crossover in an iron octacyanidoniobate-based... more...

  • Quantenchemieby Michael Springborg

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 45.99

    Der erfahrene Autor führt kompakt in die Grundlagen der Quantenchemie ein und macht deutlich, weshalb elektronisches Verhalten von Atomen, Molekülen sowie deren chemische Bindung nur mittels der Quantenchemie verständlich wird. Anwendungen wie die spektroskopische Charakterisierung von Substanzen und Techniken des computerunterstützten Modellierens... more...
