Solar Fuel Generation

Yatendra S. Chaudhary
January 17, 2017

As the search for renewable sources of energy grows more urgent, more and more attention is focusing on the blueprint offered by biological photosynthesis for translating the energy of our Sun into energy rich molecules like H2 and carbohydrates, commonly known as "solar fuels." These solar fuels...

Kinetics in Materials Science and Engineering

Dennis W. Readey
January 12, 2017

"A pedagogical gem…. Professor Readey replaces ‘black-box’ explanations with detailed, insightful derivations. A wealth of practical application examples and exercise problems complement the exhaustive coverage of kinetics for all material classes." –Prof. Rainer Hebert, University of Connecticut...

Vitamin B12: Advances and Insights

Rima Obeid
January 11, 2017

Cobalamin (vitamin B12) was discovered in the first half of the 20th century. Vast amount of information on the role of the vitamins in human health and disease became available. Cobalamin science was, however, based on theoretical concepts that have been accepted without further proof of facts and...

High brightness metal vapor lasers have become the most bright and powerful in the visible spectral range among all existing laser types, resulting in numerous applications ranging from purely fundamental research to practical application in large-scale commercial problems such as isotope selection...

Silicone Dispersions

Yihan Liu
December 16, 2016

Silicone is an important class of materials used in applications that range from industrial assembly to everyday consumer products. Silicones are often delivered and synthesized in dispersion forms, the most common being liquid-in-liquid (emulsion), solid-in-liquid (suspension), air-in-liquid (foam...

Poorly Soluble Drugs: Dissolution and Drug Release

Gregory K. Webster, Robert G. Bell, J. Derek Jackson
December 16, 2016

This book is the first text to provide a comprehensive assessment of the application of fundamental principles of dissolution and drug release testing to poorly soluble compounds and formulations. Such drug products are, vis-à-vis their physical and chemical properties, inherently incompatible with...

Nanocomposites in Electrochemical Sensors

Samira Bagheri, Iraj Sadegh Amiri, Amin Termeh Yousefi, Sharifah Bee Abd Hamid
December 09, 2016

Nanotechnology has become one of the most important fields in science. Nanoparticles exhibit unique chemical, physical and electronic properties that are different from those of bulk materials, due to their small size and better architecture. Nanoparticles can be used to construct novel sensing...
