Vitamin E is an important dietary constituent which helps in the defence against cellular damage. The process of its absorption from food and its utilization by the body is an intricate series of reactions. It is also used therapeutically in treating numerous diseases and conditions such as skin damage and the prevention of pathological lesions in major organs, and has been shown to be an important factor in preventing heart disease and cancer. Over 100 chapters from international contributors make this book the most comprehensive reference work in describing both the positive and negative effects and actions of Vitamin E. Chapters are divided into subsections which cover: nomenclature, biochemical, physical and chemical aspects of vitamn E related compounds; dietary and nutritional influences and effects; cocktails, anti-oxidants mixtures and novel analogues; general physiological systems, metabolism and metabolic stress; brain, neurological and optical systems; reproductive systems, fetus and infant; musculo-skeletal systems and exercise; cardiovascular and pulmonary systems; skin; hepatic, nephrotic and gastrointestinal systems; immune and haematological systems and cancer.

Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage of progress in the major areas of chemical research. Written by experts in their specialist fields the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, supplying regular critical in-depth accounts of progress in particular areas of chemistry. For over 80 years the Royal Society of Chemistry and its predecessor, the Chemical Society, have been publishing reports charting developments in chemistry, which originally took the form of Annual Reports. However, by 1967 the whole spectrum of chemistry could no longer be contained within one volume and the series Specialist Periodical Reports was born. The Annual Reports themselves still existed but were divided into two, and subsequently three, volumes covering Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. For more general coverage of the highlights in chemistry they remain a 'must'. Since that time the SPR series has altered according to the fluctuating degree of activity in various fields of chemistry. Some titles have remained unchanged, while others have altered their emphasis along with their titles; some have been combined under a new name whereas others have had to be discontinued. The current list of Specialist Periodical Reports can be seen on the inside flap of this volume.

Since the original publication of this book in 1992, the bleaching process has continued to attract the attention of researchers and the edible-oil industry. In this 2nd edition, the reader is directed to more modern techniques of analysis such as flame-atomic adsorption, graphite furnace atomic adsorption, and atomic emission spectrometry involving direct current plasma (DCP) and inductively coupled plasma (ICP). It also discusses the Freundlich Equation and reports on high-temperature water extraction, high- temperature oxidative aqueous regeneration, and extraction with supercritical CO2. Finally, various degumming methods improved over the past several decades are discussed Second edition features the progress in the bleaching and purifying of fats and oils since the mid-1990s Includes extensive details on the adsorptive purification of an oil prior to subsequent steps in the process, including refining and deodorization Offers practical considerations for choosing membranes, filtration equipment, and other key economic consideratons

Rodd's Chemistry of Carbon Compounds

The publication of this volume continues the supplementation of the second edition of Rodd's Chemistry of Carbon Compounds thus keeping this major work of reference up-to-date. The contents of this volume supplement chapters 20, 21, and 22 of Volume IVE of the second edition. Chapter 22 of the second edition was a reproduction of chapter IX of the original edition and was published as a tribute to Sir Robert Robinson. Advances in this area have been incorporated into the main text of the supplement. Although the chapters in this book stand on their own, they are intended to be read in conjunction with the parent chapters in the second edition.

Biochemistry of Insects reviews the state of knowledge in insect biochemistry. The book begins by examining the function of carbohydrates in regulating and maintaining the life processes of insects. This is followed by separate chapters on the functional roles of lipids and proteins in insects; and protein synthesis in insects. Subsequent chapters cover the chemistry of insect cuticle; the structure, distribution, and chemistry of insect biochromes; and chemical control of insect behavior. Also discussed are the biochemical aspects of the natural products used by insects in defensive contexts; the reaction of insecticides and related compounds with their targets; detoxification mechanisms in insects; and genetic variation in natural populations. Designed to serve as a basic textbook in field, this volume should be equally useful as an auxiliary text for most relevant courses in insect biology, particularly insect physiology, insect ecology, insect control, and economic entomology. The book should also serve as an important reference source for the advanced student, the research scientist, and the professional entomologist seeking authoritative details of relevant areas of subject matter.
