Molekulare Theoretische Chemie: Eine Einführung by Lutz Zülicke

By Lutz Zülicke

Das Werk gibt eine in sich geschlossene einführende Darstellung der Grundlagen und Methoden zur theoretischen Beschreibung molekularer Strukturen und Prozesse sowie ihrer Anwendung auf Probleme der Chemie. Neben den traditionellen Kerngebieten Quantenchemie und Reaktionsdynamik werden Verfahren zur Modellbildung, praktischen Berechnung bzw. Computersimulation komplexer molekularer Systeme behandelt. Der Umfang ist so gefasst, dass damit der Stoff nicht nur für einen Basiskurs Theoretische Chemie im Rahmen der Chemieausbildung, sondern auch für anschließende vertiefende Studien zur Verfügung steht. Anschlussstellen für den Einstieg in die aktuelle Forschung und für den Einsatz theoretisch-chemischer Methoden in Nachbargebieten (Molekülspektroskopie, Biochemie u. a.) werden aufgezeigt.

Atmospheric Oxidation and Antioxidants, Volume 1 by Gerald Scott

By Gerald Scott

Oxidation through molecular oxygen is among the so much essentially vital of all chemical strategies. it's the foundation of power creation in animals and, while, a tremendous explanation for irreversible deterioration and supreme loss of life. guy makes use of oxygen definitely within the construction of power via combustion, and lots of very important business tactics within the petrochemical are in response to the managed oxidation of hydrocarbons. while, oxidation is the most reason for deterioration of foodstuffs and of many business polymers. it really is of significant sensible value that the mechanisms of oxidation and its prevention can be understood for you to make the most of the reactions of oxygen extra successfully yet, both vital, to manage the adversarial results of oxygen on man-made items and in organic structures. the 3 volumes of this paintings are directed in the direction of those targets. even though complementary to each other, the 3 volumes shape a unmarried complete and it really is was hoping that, by way of common cross-reference, readers can be enabled to make use of principles and event from different disciplines to enlighten their very own. quantity 1 studies present knowing of autoxidation, mostly at the foundation of the reactions of oxygen with characterized chemical substances. From this flows the trendy mechanism of antioxidant activities and their software in stabilization expertise.

Photoelectrochemical Hydrogen Production (Electronic by Roel van de Krol, Michael Grätzel

By Roel van de Krol, Michael Grätzel

Photoelectrochemical Hydrogen Production describes the foundations and fabrics demanding situations for the conversion of solar into hydrogen via water splitting at a semiconducting electrode. Readers will locate an research of the forged country homes and fabrics specifications for semiconducting photo-electrodes, an in depth description of the semiconductor/electrolyte interface, as well as the photo-electrochemical (PEC) mobile. Experimental suggestions to enquire either fabrics and PEC equipment functionality are defined, by means of an summary of the present state of the art in PEC fabrics and units, and combinatorial techniques in the direction of the advance of latest fabrics. ultimately, the commercial and enterprise views of PEC units are mentioned, and promising destiny instructions indicated.

Photoelectrochemical Hydrogen Production is a one-stop source for scientists, scholars and R&D practitioners beginning during this box, supplying either the theoretical heritage in addition to precious sensible info on photoelectrochemical dimension thoughts. specialists within the box enjoy the chapters on present state of the art materials/devices and destiny directions.

Structural Glasses and Supercooled Liquids: Theory, by Peter G. Wolynes, Vassiliy Lubchenko

By Peter G. Wolynes, Vassiliy Lubchenko

With contributions from 24 international specialists in different fields, and edited via world-recognized leaders in actual chemistry, chemical physics and biophysics, Structural Glasses and Supercooled beverages: conception, test, and Applications offers a contemporary, whole survey of glassy phenomena in lots of platforms in accordance with firmly validated features of the underlying molecular motions as deduced through first precept theoretical calculations, or with direct/single-molecule experimental strategies. A well-rounded view of various disordered structures the place cooperative phenomena, that are epitomized by way of supercooled drinks, occur is provided.  those platforms contain structural glasses and supercooled beverages, polymers, complicated beverages, protein conformational dynamics, and strongly interacting electron platforms with quenched/self-generated affliction.

Detailed calculations and reasoned arguments heavily corresponding with experimental information are incorporated, making the publication obtainable to an informed non-expert reader.

Statistical Physics and Irreversible Processes, Volume 2 by Stephen G. Brush

By Stephen G. Brush

Comprising volumes this paintings presents a very complete account of the advance of kinetic thought and statistical mechanics as much as the start of the twentieth century. The author's ancient researches cross a ways past the other books at the topic, filling in lots of extra info and placing the background of kinetic concept within the context of nineteenth century clinical and highbrow historical past. during certain exam of the assets, either released and unpublished, the writer throws a lot new gentle at the dynamics of medical swap, and refutes a few commonly authorised rules approximately ancient occasions. in a single component of the paintings, he demonstrates using a type of old record which has infrequently, if ever, been exploited by way of historians of technological know-how, particularly, referees' experiences. The paintings is basically directed in the direction of physicists, yet because it is not just enthusiastic about technical points of the heritage of physics but in addition offers with cultural and philosophical connections, it is going to additionally entice historians of technological know-how and philosophers. ebook 2 is finished by means of an strangely accomplished bibliography.

Biophysical Chemistry of Biointerfaces by Hiroyuki Ohshima

By Hiroyuki Ohshima

The first publication at the cutting edge examine of biointerfaces utilizing biophysical chemistry

The biophysical phenomena that ensue on biointerfaces, or organic surfaces, carry a well known position within the research of biology and drugs, and are the most important for learn on the subject of implants, biosensors, drug supply, proteomics, and lots of different vital parts. Biophysical Chemistry of Biointerfaces takes the original method of learning organic platforms by way of the foundations and techniques of physics and chemistry, drawing its wisdom and experimental ideas from a large choice of disciplines to supply new instruments to higher comprehend the complex interactions of biointerfaces. Biophysical Chemistry of Biointerfaces:

  • Provides an in depth description of the thermodynamics and electrostatics of sentimental particles

  • Fully describes the biophysical chemistry of soppy interfaces and surfaces (polymer-coated interfaces and surfaces) as a version for biointerfaces

  • Delivers many approximate analytic formulation that are used to explain a variety of interfacial phenomena and study experimental data

  • Offers special descriptions of state of the art subject matters akin to the biophysical and interfacial chemistries of lipid membranes and gel surfaces, which serves pretty much as good version for biointerfaces in microbiology, hematology, and biotechnology

Biophysical Chemistry of Biointerfaces pairs sound method with clean perception on an rising technological know-how to function an information-rich reference for pro chemists in addition to a resource of thought for graduate and postdoctoral scholars trying to distinguish themselves during this demanding field.
