Bond Orders and Energy Components: Extracting Chemical Information from Molecular Wave Functions

István Mayer
September 01, 2016

While modern computational methods can provide us with the wave function of a molecule in numerical form, most computer programs lack the sophisticated tools needed to extract chemical concepts from these wave functions. Saving researchers vast time and potential confusion, this volume collects and...

Multiphase Polymer Systems: Micro- to Nanostructural Evolution in Advanced Technologies

Andreea Irina Barzic, Silvia Ioan
September 01, 2016

Phase morphology in multicomponent polymer-based systems represents the main physical characteristic that allows for control of the material design and implicitly the development of new plastics. Emphasizing properties of these promising new materials in both solution and solid phase, this book...

Soil Phosphorus

Rattan Lal, B. A. Stewart
August 26, 2016

Phosphorus is an essential plant nutrient, but global population growth has dramatically reduced the availability of phosphorus fertilizer resources. Despite this scarcity, there remain numerous problems associated with the excessive and inappropriate use of phosphorus leading to non-point source...

Metal–Air and Metal–Sulfur Batteries: Fundamentals and Applications

Vladimir Neburchilov, Jiujun Zhang
August 24, 2016

Metal–air and metal–sulfur batteries (MABs/MSBs) represent one of the most efficient-energy storage technologies, with high round trip efficiency, a long life cycle, fast response at peak demand/supply of electricity, and decreased weight due to the use of atmospheric oxygen as one of the main...

Chiroptical Spectroscopy: Fundamentals and Applications

Prasad L. Polavarapu
August 23, 2016

This book details chiroptical spectroscopic methods: electronic circular dichroism (ECD), optical rotatory dispersion (ORD), vibrational circular dichroism (VCD), and vibrational Raman optical activity (VROA). For each technique, the text presents experimental methods for measurements and...

Proteolysis in the Interstitial Space

Salvatore V. Pizzo, Roger L. Lundblad, Monte S. Willis
August 18, 2016

Most clinical laboratory tests utilize interstitial and extravascular such as blood, urine, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), and saliva. For example, CSF is monitored in the context of cancer for both diagnostic and therapeutic reasons. And yet, our understanding of the makeup of interstitial fluids,...
