Handbook of Astrobiology

1st Edition

Vera M. Kolb
December 17, 2018

Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life on Earth. This exciting and significant field of research also investigates the potential existence and search for extra-terrestrial life in the Solar System and beyond. This is the first handbook in this...

Lectures in Geochemistry

1st Edition

Alexey B. Ptitsyn
August 29, 2018

This book is a brief summary of the course of lectures in Geochemistry for undergraduate and graduate students from other than Geological Departments (chemists, biologists, ecologists and naturalists). It describes the Earth’s structure and some geological processes. The modern geochemical concepts...

Metal and Ceramic Biomaterials: Volume II: Strength and Surface

1st Edition

Ducheyne
December 08, 2017

The understanding of the in vivo performance of synthetic materials is largely dependent upon a profound knowledge of the properties of the materials in question. Analogous to materials science in its broadest sense, the basis for biomaterials science is formed by microstructural there. It is...

Macromolecular Materials

1st Edition

Hastings
December 08, 2017

This volume deals with some basic considerations of structure and its relation to function. After outlining some basic principles in the first chapter, including manufacturing effects, structural determination is discussed in detail. This is important since adequate characterization in terms of...

Synthesis of Biocomposite Materials: Chemical and Biological Modifications of Natural Polymers

1st Edition

Yukio Imanishi
December 08, 2017

Biomaterials have been used for artificial-organ and bioreactor materials, and have gained importance for enhancement of human welfare. This book summarizes research devoted to creating useful biofunctional materials by chemical modification of natural polymers, and forecasts future development....

Physical Sensors for Biomedical Applications

1st Edition

Michael R. Neuman
November 29, 2017

The material in this book is based upon a two-day workshop on solid state physical sensors for biomedical applications held in Huron, Ohio, December 8-9, 1977. The individual sections of the book are based upon presentations made by the authors at the workshop. Each presentation was transcribed and...

Bioceramics Calcium Phosphate

1st Edition

K. de Groot
November 29, 2017

The first chapters are fundamental, in that the physical chemistry of calcium phosphate salts is discussed, along with mineralization (with emphasis on teeth) and remodelling of mineralized tissues. Thereafter follows a treatment of the influence of implants o surrounding hard tissues. This topic...

Indwelling and Implantable Pressure Transducers

1st Edition

D.G. Flemming
November 29, 2017

In the first two chapters of this book there is information about the needs and potential applications of indwelling transducers both present and past, and will go into detail about many topics such as the fundaments of blood pressure transducers, studies of the intestinal motility and clinical...

1st Edition

J.N. Martin
October 12, 2017

This volume comprises the proceedings of a three-day meeting held at the Royal Society, London, UK on 22,23,24 April 1987. The combined second International Symposium on Geochemistry and Health and 5th European Meeting of the Society for Environmental Geochemistry and Health was sponsored by the...

Biogeochemistry of Trace Metals: Advances In Trace Substances Research

1st Edition

Domy C. Adriano
July 13, 2017

Biogeochemistry of Trace Metals is a compendium of the most recent information available on the effects of trace metals in soil quality and its potential threat on the transfer of these contaminants to consumers. Most of the chapters in the book were presented as papers during the First...

Interfacial Chemistry of Rocks and Soils

1st Edition

Noemi M. Nagy, Jozsef Konya
June 16, 2017

Knowledge of the basic interactions that take place between geological materials and different substances is the first step in understanding the effects of adsorption and other interfacial processes on the quality of rocks and soils, and on driving these processes towards a beneficial or neutral...
