  • Understanding Spin Dynamicsby Danuta Kruk

    Pan Stanford 2015; US$ 149.95

    Experimental methods employing spin resonance effects (nuclear magnetic resonance and electron spin resonance) are broadly used in molecular science due to their unique potential to reveal mechanisms of molecular motion, structure, and interactions. The developed techniques bring together biologists investigating dynamics of proteins, material science... more...

  • C60: Buckminsterfullereneby Harold W. Kroto

    Pan Stanford 2015; US$ 34.95

    This compendium of accounts reveals the unique perspectives of many scientists who made major contributions to the Nobel Prize-winning discovery of C60 buckminsterfullerene but who have not previously published personal accounts. The introduction attempts to provide a rational framework for understanding how this discovery came about and how firmly... more...

  • C-H Bond Activation in Organic Synthesisby Jie Jack Li

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 139.95

    C?H activation involves any of a wide range of techniques, often using catalysts in which a carbon to hydrogen covalent bond of an organic compound is cleaved to replace the hydrogen with a functional group. C?H Activation for functionalization is the state of the art in organic chemistry. It enables chemists to carry out reactions in the most environmentally... more...
