December 13, 2017

Designed for scientists and engineers involved in the physical chemistry of antioxidants, the Handbook of Antioxidants contains comprehensive data on the thermodynamics and reactivity of antioxidants. It includes: bond dissociation energies of antioxidants such as phenols (O-H bonds), aromatic...

The Symmetric Group in Quantum Chemistry

R. Pauncz
December 08, 2017

This is the first book to provide comprehensive treatment of the use of the symmetric group in quantum chemical structures of atoms, molecules, and solids. It begins with the conventional Slater determinant approach and proceeds to the basics of the symmetric group and the construction of spin...

Nonequilibrium Processes in Catalysis

Oleg V. Krylov
November 29, 2017

Nonequilibrium Processes in Catalysis presents modern ideas and experimental data (e.g., molecular beams, laser technique) on adsorption and catalysis, the mechanism of energy exchange in the processes of particles interaction with a surface, and the lifetimes of excited particles on a surface....

Dichroic Dyes for Liquid Crystal Displays

Aleksandr V. Ivashchenko
November 29, 2017

This book provides a systematic presentation of issues pertaining to the development of dichroic dyes applied in electrooptical systems for displaying and processing data. It explains the theory of the guest-host effect and the methodology of engineering dichroic dye (DD) molecules with specified...

Thermodynamic and Kinetic Aspects of the Vitreous State

S.V. Nemilov
November 29, 2017

This is the first book to logically present the major problems of the vitreous state within the framework of irreversible thermodynamics. Filled with elementary explanations for difficult problems, this easily understood text/reference treats in detail the criteria of glass transition, the...

Graph-Theoretical Matrices in Chemistry

Dusanka Janezic, Ante Milicevic, Sonja Nikolic, Nenad Trinajstic
November 22, 2017

Graph-Theoretical Matrices in Chemistry presents a systematic survey of graph-theoretical matrices and highlights their potential uses. This comprehensive volume is an updated, extended version of a former bestseller featuring a series of mathematical chemistry monographs. In this edition, nearly...

Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation

Cyril Bernard Lucas
October 23, 2017

Atomic and molecular beams are employed in physics and chemistry experiments and, to a lesser extent, in the biological sciences. These beams enable atoms to be studied under collision-free conditions and allow the study of their interaction with other atoms, charged particles, radiation, and...

Computational Approaches for the Prediction of pKa Values

George C. Shields, Paul G. Seybold
October 18, 2017

The pKa of a compound describes its acidity or basicity and, therefore, is one of its most important properties. Its value determines what form of the compound—positive ion, negative ion, or neutral species—will be present under different circumstances. This is crucial to the action and detection...

The Molecular Theory of Adsorption in Porous Solids

Yu. K. Tovbin
October 13, 2017

In the adsorption phenomenon the substances from the external environment the gas or liquid are absorbed by a solid surface (adsorbent). Adsorption is used to separate gaseous and liquid mixtures, for drying and purification of gases and liquids. This reference broadly explores the calculation of...

Electrospun Polymer Nanofibers

Arkadii Arinstein
October 06, 2017

Discussing the electrospinning process, the book covers in great depth the current research interest in nanoscience and nanotechnology, especially electrospinning of polymer nanofibers. The main distinction of the proposed book from others devoted to the electrospinning process is in the...

Biomolecular Kinetics: A Step-by-Step Guide

Clive R. Bagshaw
October 05, 2017

"a gem of a textbook which manages to produce a genuinely fresh, concise yet comprehensive guide"–Mark Leake, University of York "destined to become a standard reference…. Not just a ‘how to’ handbook but also an accessible primer in the essentials of kinetic theory and practice."–Michael Geeves,...
