Download Chemische Sensoren: Eine Einführung für Naturwissenschaftler by Peter Gründler PDF

By Peter Gründler

Die Forschung und Anwendungsentwicklung in dem Bereich chemischer und biochemischer Sensoren ist weiterhin in einem schnellen Wachstum begriffen. Die Erfahrungen des letzten Jahrzehnts haben jedoch gezeigt, dass die erfolgreiche Entwicklung solcher Sensoren, die auch den harten Routinebedingungen in den vielf?ltigen Anwendungsgebieten widerstehen, nur dann m?glich ist, wenn Chemiker und Ingenieure kooperieren. Daher ist es das Ziel dieses Lehrbuches, sowohl Chemikern als auch Ingenieuren, Lebensmittel- und Biotechnologen in einer streng systematischen aber sehr praxisorientierten Darstellung die Technologie und die Anwendung chemischer Sensoren nahezubringen. Der interdisziplin?re Ansatz ?berbr?ckt die unterschiedlichen Denkweisen in Chemie, Physik und Ingenieurwissenschaften erfolgreich.

Download Modern Batteries. Intro to Electrochemical Power Sources by C. Vincent, Bruno Scrosati PDF

By C. Vincent, Bruno Scrosati

In accordance with the profitable first version, this publication supplies a basic theoretical advent to electrochemical strength cells (excluding gasoline cells) by way of a complete remedy of the primary battery forms - masking chemistry, fabrication features and functions. there were many alterations within the box over the past decade and plenty of new platforms were commercialised. because the contemporary creation of battery powered customer items (mobile telephones, camcorders, lap-tops etc.) complex energy resources became way more very important. this article presents an updated account of batteries that's obtainable to someone with a simple wisdom of chemistry and physics.

Download Quantum Modeling of Complex Molecular Systems by Jean-Louis Rivail, Manuel Ruiz-Lopez, Xavier Assfeld PDF

By Jean-Louis Rivail, Manuel Ruiz-Lopez, Xavier Assfeld

This multi-author contributed quantity contains methodological advances and unique functions to real chemical or biochemical phenomena which have been impossible earlier than the elevated sophistication of contemporary desktops. The chapters comprise special experiences of the advancements of assorted computational innovations, used to check complicated molecular structures similar to molecular drinks and strategies (particularly aqueous solutions), liquid-gas, solid-gas interphase and biomacromolecular systems.

Quantum modeling of advanced molecular structures is an invaluable source for graduate scholars and fledgling researchers and is usually a good significant other for learn execs engaged in computational chemistry, fabric technological know-how, nanotechnology, physics, drug layout, and molecular biochemistry.

Download Chemistry and Physics of Solid Surfaces IV by W. E. Spicer (auth.), Professor Ralf Vanselow, Professor PDF

By W. E. Spicer (auth.), Professor Ralf Vanselow, Professor Russel Howe (eds.)

At the overseas summer season Institute in floor technological know-how (ISISS), that is held bienially at the Campus of the college of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, invited audio system current instructional overview lectures throughout the process one week. nearly all of the displays care for the gas-solid interface, yet at times correct studies touching on liquid-solid or solid-solid interfaces are incorporated. The objective of ISISS was once defined within the first ISISS book: "We realize that the foreign summer time Institute in floor technology should still foster mutual knowing and interplay between theorists and experimentalists within the a variety of components of floor technological know-how. growth could be accomplished purely after we sometimes peek over the fence into neighboring parts, no longer rather a lot to amuse ourselves that the grass is greener at the different aspect as to benefit from their development and, probably both fruitfully, from their barriers and setbacks. additionally, it's a major activity in any box of technology to evaluate, take count number of what's performed and, what's extra very important, to indicate in destiny instructions. " because the starting place of ISISS in 1973, the invited audio system - internation­ best friend famous specialists of their sector of specialization - were requested to jot down evaluate articles too. we needed during this method to make sure that the most important attainable crew of scientists may benefit from the unique overview concept.

Download Tanning Chemistry: The Science of Leather by Anthony D. Covington PDF

By Anthony D. Covington

Even within the twenty first Century, the manufacture of leather-based keeps an air of the darkish arts, nonetheless slightly shrouded within the mysteries of a millennia previous, craft dependent undefined. regardless of the easiest efforts of some scientists over the past century or so, a lot of the knowledge of the rules of tanning continues to be in accordance with acquired knowledge and event. leather-based is made of (usually) the hides and skins of animals - huge animals reminiscent of livestock have hides, small animals resembling sheep have skins. the outside of any animal is essentially composed of the protein collagen, so it's the chemistry of this fibrous protein and the homes it confers to the surface with which the tanner is such a lot involved.

In addition, different parts of the outside influence on processing, influence at the chemistry of the fabric and impression at the houses of the product, leather-based. for that reason, it really is valuable to appreciate the relationships among epidermis constitution on the molecular and macro degrees, the alterations imposed via enhancing the chemistry of the cloth and the eventual houses of the leather.This publication goals to give a contribution to altering the pondering within the undefined, to proceed development a physique of clinical figuring out, aimed toward improving the sustainability of an which produces a special crew of fabrics, derived from a ordinary resource. The technology of leather-based is the one present textual content on tanning technology, and addresses the medical ideas which underpin the procedures interested by making leather-based. it's occupied with the chemical amendment of collagen, sooner than tanning and the tanning reactions particularly. the topic is roofed within the following order: collagen chemistry, collagen constitution, epidermis constitution, processing to organize for tanning, the tanning strategies and processing after tanning.

• the purpose of the publication is to supply leather-based scientists and technologists with an figuring out of ways the reactions paintings, the character in their results and the way the tactics might be managed and altered.
• the target is to synthesise a systematic view of leather-based making and to reach at an realizing of the character of tanning - how the big variety of chemistries hired within the paintings can switch the homes of collagen, making leather-based with diverse homes, specifically conferring assorted levels of stabilisation as measured through the hydrothermal balance. Environmental concerns will not be handled as a separate topic - the effect of leather-based making at the setting is a thread operating in the course of the textual content, with the belief that higher figuring out of the technological know-how of leather-based making will bring about more advantageous processing.
• The publication additionally displays at the methods leather-based know-how could boost sooner or later according to the root of realizing the clinical ideas which are exploited. it is also a subject matter index, references and a thesaurus.
• The e-book offers the reader with insights into the position technology performs in leather-based know-how and gives basic realizing, which may be the foundation for clinical and technological learn and improvement for the good thing about the worldwide leather-based industry.
• The booklet is aimed toward scholars, leather-based scientists and technologists, in either academia and undefined, in leather-based creation and in chemical provide homes.
