New Edition The fully revised and expanded 10th edition decodes over 145,000 different abbreviations for periodical titles and selected monographs in all fields. Over 14,900 new entries were added since the previous edition. Volume 1 lists in a single alphabet abbreviations commonly used for periodicals together with their full titles. Volume 2 is arranged alphabetically by periodical title, rather than by abbreviation. Volume 3 supplements the 10th edition of Periodical Title Abbreviations by adding approximately 10,000 newly coined or newly found abbreviations.
Organic Chemistry: The Name Game: Modern Coined Terms and their Origins is a lighthearted take on the usually difficult and systematic nomenclature found in organic chemistry. However, despite the lightheartedness, the book does not lose its purpose, which is to serve as a source of information on this particular subject of organic chemistry. The book, arranged into themes, discusses some organic compounds and how they are named based on their structure, makeup, and components. The text also explains the use of Greek and Latin prefixes in nomenclature and many other principles in nomenclature. The book also includes an appendix that contains very useful information on nomenclature, such as the etymology of certain element and chemical names, numerical prefixes, and the Greek alphabet. The text is not only for students who wish to be familiarized with a different style of organic chemistry nomenclature, but also for professors who aim to give students an enjoyable yet memorable learning experience.
An international, interdisciplinary, and interreligious retrospective examination of Hans Jonas (1903-1993) that engages his ideas in light of Existentialism, utopian thought, process philosophy and theology, Zionism, and environmentalism.
Advances in Polymer Science enjoys a longstanding tradition and good reputation in its community. Each volume is dedicated to a current topic, and each review critically surveys one aspect of that topic, to place it within the context of the volume. The volumes typically summarize the significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years and discuss them critically, presenting selected examples, explaining and illustrating the important principles, and bringing together many important references of primary literature. On that basis, future research directions in the area can be discussed. Advances in Polymer Science volumes thus are important references for every polymer scientist, as well as for other scientists interested in polymer science - as an introduction to a neighboring field, or as a compilation of detailed information for the specialist.
This book introduces readers to hydrogen as an essential energy carrier for use with renewable sources of primary energy. It provides an overview of the state of the art, while also highlighting the developmental and market potential of hydrogen in the context of energy technologies; mobile, stationary and portable applications; uninterruptible power supplies and in the chemical industry. Written by experienced practitioners, the book addresses the needs of engineers, chemists and business managers, as well as graduate students and researchers.
Chemistry plays a very important role in the emerging field of synthetic biology. In particular, chemical synthetic biology is concerned with the synthesis of chemical structures, such as proteins, that do not exist in nature. With contributions from leading international experts, Chemical Synthetic Biology shows how chemistry underpins synthetic biology. The book is an essential guide to this fascinating new field, and will find a place on the bookshelves of researchers and students working in synthetic chemistry, synthetic and molecular biology, bioengineering, systems biology, computational genomics, and bioinformatics.
This work presents a comprehensive survey of important anionic surfactants. It delineates current manufacturing technologies, methods of analysis, practical applications, environmental behaviour and the physicochemical and toxicological properties of surfactants and their related by-products. The uses of anionic surfactants in the cleaning, cosmetic, textile, leather, food, petroleum, metalworking and paper industries, are encompassed.
