Was eignet sich besser zum Einstieg in ein neues Fachgebiet als ein in der Muttersprache verfasster Text? So manch angehender Biophysiker hätte sich den englischen 'Biophysics' von Cotterill schon lange als deutsche Übersetzung gewünscht. Hier ist sie: sorgfältig strukturiert und ausgewogen wie das englische Original, mit dem Vorzug der schnelleren Erfaßbarkeit. Vom Molekül bis zum Bewusstsein deckt der "Cotterill" alle Ebenen ab. Er setzt nur wenig Grundwissen voraus und ist damit für die Einführungsvorlesung nach dem Vordiplom ideal. Zusätzliche Anhänge mit mathematischen und physikalischen Grundlagen machen das Lehrbuch auch für Chemiker und Biologen attraktiv.

The most comprehensive reference on fluorescent nanodiamond physical and chemical properties and contemporary applications Fluorescent nanodiamonds (FNDs) have drawn a great deal of attention over the past several years, and their applications and development potential are proving to be manifold and vast. The first and only book of its kind, Fluorescent Nanodiamonds is a comprehensive guide to the basic science and technical information needed to fully understand the fundamentals of FNDs and their potential applications across an array of domains. In demonstrating the importance of FNDs in biological applications, the authors bring together all relevant chemistry, physics, materials science and biology. Nanodiamonds are produced by powerful cataclysmic events such as explosions, volcanic eruptions and meteorite impacts. They also can be created in the lab by high-pressure high-temperature treatment of graphite or detonating an explosive in a reactor vessel. A single imperfection can give a nanodiamond a specific, isolated color center which allows it to function as a single, trapped atom. Much smaller than the thickness of a human hair, a nanodiamond can have a huge surface area that allows it to bond with a variety of other materials. Because of their non-toxicity, nanodiamonds may be useful in biomedical applications, such as drug delivery and gene therapy. The most comprehensive reference on a topic of rapidly increasing interest among academic and industrial researchers across an array of fields Includes numerous case studies and practical examples from many areas of research and industrial applications, as well as fascinating and instructive historical perspectives Each chapter addresses, in-depth, a single integral topic including the fundamental properties, synthesis, mechanisms and functionalisation of FNDs The first book published by the key patent holder with his research group in the field of FNDs Fluorescent Nanodiamonds is an important working resource for a broad range of scientists and engineers in industry and academia. It will also be a welcome reference for instructors in chemistry, physics, materials science, biology and related fields.

Für Studenten im Grund- und Hauptstudium aus allen Bereichen der Bioorganischen Chemie und der Biologischen Chemie sowie der Chemischen Biologie und der Biochemie. - Sind Vorkenntnisse erforderlich? Nein, nur Grundkenntnisse in organischer Chemie. - Wie gliedert sich das Buch? Nach den wichtigsten biochemischen Stoffwechselwegen mit ihren Reaktionsmechanismen und der zugrunde liegenden molekularen Logik, nach denen die Natur die Moleküle des Lebens ineinander umwandelt. Die wichtigsten Stoffwechselwege der verschiedenen Hauptklassen von Biomolekülen (Lipide, Kohlenhydrate, Aminosäuren und Nucleotide) werden vorgestellt und Themen wie Ionisierungszustände, Stereochemie, Prochiralität und andere wesentliche Merkmale der Struktur und Reaktivität verständlich erklärt.

Principles and Applications of ESR Spectroscopy fills the gap between the detailed monographs in ESR spectroscopy and the general textbooks in molecular physics, physical chemistry, biochemistry or spectroscopy. The latter only briefly explain the underlying theory and do not provide details about applications, while the currently available ESR textbooks are primarily focused on the technique as such. This text is based upon the authors’ long experience of teaching the subject to a mixed audience, in the extreme case ranging from physics to biology. The potential of the method is illustrated with applications in fields such as molecular science, catalysis and environmental sciences, polymer and materials sciences, biochemistry and radiation chemistry/physics. Theoretical derivations have in general been omitted, as they have been presented repeatedly in previous works. The necessary theory is instead illustrated by practical examples from the literature.
