Covalent Organic Frameworks

1st Edition

Atsushi Nagai
January 24, 2020

Rational synthesis of extended arrays of organic matter in bulk, solution, crystals, and thin films has always been a paramount goal of chemistry. The classical synthetic tools to obtain long-range regularity are, however, limited to noncovalent interactions, which usually yield structurally more...

The Shroud of Turin: First Century after Christ!

2nd Edition

Giulio Fanti, Pierandrea Malfi
January 10, 2020

The Shroud of Turin is the most important and studied relic in the world. The many scientific studies on the relic until today have failed to provide conclusive answers about the identity of the enveloped man and the dynamics regarding the image impressed therein. This book not only addresses these...
