  • Food Structure and Moisture Transferby Valérie Guillard; Claire Bourlieu; Nathalie Gontard

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 49.95

    It's well known that the structural characteristics of food materials influence their mass transfer, especially their water transfer properties during such processes as drying, hydration, and storage. In porous cereal-based products, for example, effective water diffusivity is highly affected by the volume fraction and distribution of both solid and... more...

  • Gold Nanoparticles for Physics, Chemistry and Biologyby Catherine Louis; Olivier Pluchery

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 129.00

    The fascination with gold is a story which spans millennia, however scientists have recently found a new interest for gold when it is divided into miniscule grains, such as gold nanoparticles. This scientific enthusiasm started in various fields of science in the middle of the 1980s and the present book offers a panorama of the major scientific achievements... more...

  • Radical Abundanceby K. Eric Drexler

    PublicAffairs 2013; US$ 28.99

    K. Eric Drexler is the founding father of nanotechnology—the science of engineering on a molecular level. In Radical Abundance , he shows how rapid scientific progress is about to change our world. Thanks to atomically precise manufacturing, we will soon have the power to produce radically more of what people want, and at a lower cost. The result... more...

  • The Social Life of Nanotechnologyby Barbara Herr Harthorn; John W. Mohr

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    This book addresses the interconnections and tensions between technological development, the social benefits and risks of new technology, and the changing political economy of a global world system as they apply to the emerging field of nanotechnologies. The basic premise, developed throughout the volume, is that nanotechnologies have an undertheorized... more...

  • Energy and Information Transfer in Biological Systemsby Francesco Musumeci; Larissa S. Brizhik; Mae-Wan Ho

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 273.00

    This volume contains papers based on the workshop “Energy and Information Transfer in Biological Systems: How Physics Could Enrich Biological Understanding”, held in Italy in 2002. The meeting was a forum aimed at evaluating the potential and outlooks of a modern physics approach to understanding and describing biological processes, especially... more...

  • Frontiers of Scienceby Hwa-Tung Nieh

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 251.00

    The International Symposium on Frontiers of Science was held to celebrate the 80th birthday of Chen Ning Yang, one of the great physicists of the 20th century and arguably the most-admired living scientist in China today. Many of the world's great scientists — including sixteen Nobel laureates, Fields medallists and Wolf Prize winners —... more...

  • Biopolymer Nanocompositesby Alain Dufresne; Sabu Thomas; Laly A. Pothan; Richard F Grossman; Domasius Nwabunma

    Wiley 2013; US$ 191.00

    Sets forth the techniques needed to create a vast array of useful biopolymer nanocomposites Interest in biopolymer nanocomposites is soaring. Not only are they green and sustainable materials, they can also be used to develop a broad range of useful products with special properties, from therapeutics to coatings to packaging materials. With contributions... more...

  • Soft Fibrillar Materialsby Jing Liang Li; Xiang Yang Liu

    Wiley 2013; US$ 170.00

    As one of the most important classes of soft materials, supramolecular materials are of a mixture of networks of molecular chains/fibrils and a liquid. These self-assembled fibrous/ molecular architectures exhibit various functionalities, ie. superhydrophobicity or superior mechanical strength, etc. and consist of the controllable structures. They... more...

  • Organic and Hybrid Solar Cellsby Lukas Schmidt-Mende; Jonas Weickert

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 1,120.00

    With the increasing world-energy demand there is a growing necessity for clean and renewable energy. The sun being one of the most abundant potential sources accounts for less than 1% of the global energy supply. The market for solar cells is one of the most strongly increasing markets, even though the prize of conventional solar cells is still quite... more...
