December 22, 2016

A follow-up to the experimental and instrumental aspects described in Basic Principles of Analytical Ultracentrifugation, the volume Sedimentation Velocity Analytical Ultracentrifugation: Discrete Species and Size-Distributions of Macromolecules and Particles describes the theory and practice of...

Ultrafast Dynamics at the Nanoscale: Biomolecules and Supramolecular Assemblies

Stefan Haacke, Irene Burghardt
December 21, 2016

Ultrafast Dynamics at the Nanoscale provides a combined experimental and theoretical insight into the molecular-level investigation of light-induced quantum processes in biological systems and nanostructured (bio)assemblies. Topics include DNA photostability and repair, photoactive proteins,...

High-brightness Metal Vapour Lasers: Volume I: Physical Fundamentals and Mathematical Models

V. M. Batenin, V. V. Buchanov, A. M. Boichenko, M. A. Kazaryan, I. I. Klimovskii, E. I. Molodykh
December 19, 2016

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...

Complementary and Alternative Medicines in Prostate Cancer: A Comprehensive Approach

K. B. Harikumar
December 06, 2016

Recent global cancer statistical data has clearly indicated that prostate cancer is currently the second most frequently diagnosed cancer (at 15% of all male cancers) and globally the sixth leading cause of cancer death in males. This book is a summary of prostate cancer, covering its incidence,...

NMR of Liquid Crystal Dendrimers

Carlos Rodrigues da Cruz, João L. Figueirinhas, Pedro J. Sebastião
December 05, 2016

Dendrimers are hyperbranched molecules with well-defined nanometer-scale dimensions. Important technological applications of these systems, both in biomedicine and materials science, have been recently proposed. Liquid crystal dendrimers are fascinating materials that combine the characteristics of...

Measurement Uncertainty in Forensic Science: A Practical Guide

Suzanne Bell
December 02, 2016

In the courtroom, critical and life-changing decisions are made based on quantitative forensic science data. There is often a range in which a measured value is expected to fall and, in this, an inherent uncertainty associated with such measurement. Uncertainty in this context is not error. In fact...
