  • Indoor and Outdoor Nanoparticlesby Mar Viana

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 259.00

    This volume provides an overviewof the determinants of the release of and exposure to airborne nanoparticles. Whetherintentionally manufactured or unintentionally generated during industrial processes,the release of nanoparticles can result in significant worker exposure, whichmust be dealt with adequately by means of dedicated risk assessments to... more...

  • High-Entropy Alloysby Michael C. Gao; Jien-Wei Yeh; Peter K. Liaw; Yong Zhang

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 199.00

    This book provides a systematic and comprehensive description of high-entropy alloys (HEAs). The authors summarize key properties of HEAs from the perspective of both fundamental understanding and applications, which are supported by in-depth analyses. The book also contains computational modeling in tackling HEAs, which help elucidate the formation... more...

  • The Encapsulation Phenomenonby Yan Voloshin; Irina Belaya; Roland Krämer

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 279.00

    This fundamental book presents the most comprehensive summary of the current state of the art in the chemistry of cage compounds. It introduces different ways of how ions and molecules can be encapsulated by three-dimensional caging ligands to form molecular and polymeric species: covalent, supramolecular, and coordination capsules. The authors introduce... more...

  • Organogelsby Jean-Michel Guenet

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 54.99

    This book provides a physics-oriented introduction to organogels with a comparison to polymer thermoreversible gels whenever relevant. The past decade has seen the development of a wide variety of newly-synthesized molecules that can spontaneously self-assemble or crystallize from their organic or aqueous solutions to produce fibrillar networks, namely... more...

  • Controlled Synthesis of Pt-Ni Bimetallic Catalysts and Study of Their Catalytic Propertiesby Yuen Wu

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 99.00

    This thesis focuses on the controlled synthesis of Pt?Ni bimetallic nanoparticles and the study of their catalytic properties. It discusses in detail the nucleation mechanism and the growth process of bimetallic systems, which is vital for a deeper understanding of the design of bimetallic catalysts. The author presents four pioneering studies: (1)... more...
