Molecules That Amaze Us

Paul May, Simon Cotton
October 23, 2014

"This new book is by two knowledgeable and expert popularizers of chemistry and deals exclusively with molecules and compounds rather than with the simpler atoms and elements. It is based on the very successful ‘Molecule of the Month’ website that was begun by Paul May fifteen years ago and to...

Nanostructural Bioceramics: Advances in Chemically Bonded Ceramics

Leif Hermansson
August 20, 2014

Biomaterials are produced in situ and in vivo in the body using mainly hydration reactions, that is, reactions between phosphates, silicates or aluminates, and water. The nanostructural integration of these biomaterials in the body is controlled by six mechanisms. The biomaterial interaction with...
