The Chemistry of Beer: The Science in the Suds

Discover the science of beer and beer making. Ever wondered just how grain and water are transformed into an effervescent, alcoholic beverage? From prehistory to our own time, beer has evoked awe and fascination; it seems to have a life of its own. Whether you're a home brewer, a professional brewer, or just someone who enjoys a beer, The Chemistry of Beer will take you on a fascinating journey, explaining the underlying science and chemistry at every stage of the beer making process. All the science is explained in clear, non-technical language, so you don't need to be a PhD scientist to read this book and develop a greater appreciation for the world's most popular alcoholic drink.

Spectroscopic Properties of Inorganic and Organometallic Compounds

This series provides an unequalled source of information on an area of chemistry that continues to grow in importance. Divided into sections mainly according to the particular spectroscopic technique used, coverage in each volume includes: NMR (with reference to stereochemistry, dynamic systems, paramagnetic complexes, solid state NMR and Groups 13-18); nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy; vibrational spectroscopy of main group and transition element compounds and coordinated ligands; and electron diffraction. Reflecting the growing volume of published work in the field, researchers will find this an invaluable source of information on current methods and applications.

Solid State Chemistry and Its Applications- Student Edition, 2nd Edition

Solid State Chemistry and its Applications, 2nd Edition: Student Edition is an extensive update and sequel to the bestselling textbook Basic Solid State Chemistry , the classic text for undergraduate teaching in solid state chemistry worldwide

Physical Chemistry of Macromolecules: Macro to Nanoscales

Knowledge of thermodynamics is a necessary tool for describing and understanding the physical behavior of new polymers and polymer blends, for instance, compatibility of components, rheological properties, morphological features, and mechanical properties. This book summarizes in a fairly comprehensive manner the recent technical research accomplishments in the area of thermodynamics, characterizations, and applications of polymer blends.

Organometallic Chemistry: Volume 39 (Specialist Periodical Reports)

A series of critical reviews and perspectives focussing on specific aspects of organometallic chemistry interfacing with other fields of study are provided. For this volume, the critical reviews cover topics such as the activation of "inert" carbon-hydrogen bonds, ligand design and organometallic radical species. For example, Charlie O'Hara discusses how mixed-metal compounds may perform the highly selective activation of C-H bonds and, in particular, how synergic relationships between various metals are crucial to this approach. The chemistry of a remarkable series of air-stable chiral primary phosphine ligands is discussed in some depth by Rachel Hiney, Arne Ficks, Helge MĀ³ller-Bunz, Declan Gilheany and Lee Higham.

Homogeneous Catalysis: Mechanisms and Industrial Applications

Over the last decade, the area of homogeneous catalysis with transition metal has grown in great scientific interest and technological promise, with research in this area earning three Nobel Prizes and filing thousands of patents relating to metallocene and non-metallocene single site catalysts, asymmetric catalysis, carbon-carbon bond forming metathesis and cross coupling reactions.

Nanoscience and Computational Chemistry: Research Progress

This book provides innovative chapters covering new methodologies and important applications in the fields of nanoscience and computational chemistry. The book offers scope for academics, researchers, and engineering professionals to present their research and development works that have potential for applications in several disciplines of nano and computational chemistry.

Toxins and Biologically Active Compounds from Microalgae, Volume 1

This book provides a structured account of the existing knowledge of toxic algae, the chemistry of the toxins they produce, the effects these substances exert in humans and wildlife, as well as the strategies envisaged to protect public health and the environment. It covers recent advances in the understanding of the biology of toxin producers and the factors involved in the appearance and dynamics of harmful algae blooms, the factors affecting toxin production, the synthesis of toxins both in natural producers and by chemical means in a lab, and the toxin groups posing continuing and novel hazards to living systems.

Inorganic Chemistry (2nd edition)

This textbook provides essential information for students of inorganic chemistry or for chemists pursuing self-study. The presentation of topics is made with an effort to be clear and concise so that the book is portable and user friendly.

Introduction to Software for Chemical Engineers

The field of chemical engineering is in constant evolution, and access to information technology is changing the way chemical engineering problems are addressed.

Lanthanum- Compounds, Production and Applications

Lanthanum is a chemical element with the symbol La and atomic number 57. Lanthanum is a silvery white metallic element that belongs to group 3 of the periodic table and is a lanthanoid. It is found in some rare-earth minerals, usually in combination with cerium and other rare earth elements. Lanthanum compounds have numerous applications such as catalyst, additives in glass, carbon lighting for studio lighting and projection, ignition element in lighters and torches, electron cathode, scintillator, and others. This book reviews research on the biomedical applications of lanthanum; the effect of lanthanum in heterogeneous catalysts; lanthanum strontium manganites for application as cathodes in solid oxide fuel cells, and others.

Binding, Transport and Storage of Metal Ions in Biological Cells

Metal ions play key roles in biology. Many are essential for catalysis, for electron transfer and for the fixation, sensing, and metabolism of gases. Others compete with those essential metal ions or have toxic or pharmacological effects.
