  • Smart Membrane Materials and Systemsby Liang-Yin Chu

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    "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...

  • Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopyby Reinhard Noll

    Springer 2012; US$ 199.00

    This book is a comprehensive source of the fundamentals, process parameters, instrumental components and applications of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The effect of multiple pulses on material ablation, plasma dynamics and plasma emission is presented. A heuristic plasma modeling allows to simulate complex experimental plasma spectra.... 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...

  • 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...

  • Fluorescent Proteins Iby Gregor Jung

    Springer 2011; US$ 329.00

    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...

  • Assessing the Functional Structure of Molecular Transporters by EPR Spectroscopyby Matthias J.N.Junk

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    In his thesis, Matthias Junk takes an innovative approach to assess the local structure and dynamics of biological and synthetic amphiphilic macromolecules capable of transporting small molecules. Replacing the latter with stable radicals, he uses state-of-the-art electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy to describe the highly relevant transport... 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...
