Templated DNA Nanotechnology: Functional DNA Nanoarchitectonics

1st Edition

Thimmaiah Govindaraju
October 31, 2018

Nucleic acids have structurally evolved over billions of years to effectively store and transfer the genetic information. The disruptive thinking of Nadrian Seeman in the 1980s led to utilizing DNA as nanomolecular building blocks to construct emergent molecular systems and nanomaterial objects....

Phylogeny and Evolution of Bacteria and Mitochondria

1st Edition

Mauro Degli Esposti
October 30, 2018

Life on earth began with bacteria, which now colonize every corner of the planet. As the ancestors of mitochondria, bacteria are also fundamental for our cells. Most bacteria look alike, but have very different functions. Therefore, knowing the functional profile of bacteria helps understand their...

Liquid Marbles: Formation, Characterization, and Applications

1st Edition

Andrew T. Tyowua
October 24, 2018

Certain small solid particles are surface-active at fluid interfaces and thus are able to stabilize materials previously considered impossible to stabilize in their absence. Liquid marbles, particle-coated non-sticking liquid droplets, represent one of these materials. Preparation of liquid marbles...

K. S. Siddiqi, Leo M.L. Nollet
October 24, 2018

There is an increasing interest by consumers for high-quality food products with a clear geographical origin. With these products in demand, suitable analytical techniques are needed for the quality control. Current analytical approaches are mass spectrometry techniques, spectroscopic techniques,...

Lubricant Blending and Quality Assurance

1st Edition

R. David Whitby
October 24, 2018

Many people, including those involved in the manufacturing, marketing and selling of lubricants, believe that blending lubricants is simply a matter of putting one or more base oils and several additives into a tank of some kind and stirring them around to mix them. Blending lubricants that meet...
