Phosphorus-containing (co)polymers are gaining wide appeal for many uses, from healthcare and medicine to energy and environmental applications. Phosphorus-Based Polymers is the first book dedicated to this topic and provides a comprehensive overview o...

Principles of Colloid and Surface Chemistry, Third Edition, Revised and Expanded

This work aims to familiarize students with the fundamentals of colloid and surface science, from various types of colloids and colloidal phenomena, and classical and modern characterization/measurement techniques to applications of colloids and surface science in engineering, technology, chemistry, physics and biological and medical sciences. The Journal of Textile Studies proclaims "High praise from peers . . .contains valuable inf...

Spin Dynamics: Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

The book assumes only a basic knowledge of complex numbers and matrices, and provides the reader with numerous worked examples and exercises to encourage understanding. With the explicit aim of carefully developing the subject from the beginning, the text starts with coverage of quarks and nucleons and progresses through to a detailed explanation of several important NMR experiments, including NMR imaging, COSY, NOESY and TROSY. Comp...

Biopesticides: State of the Art and Future Opportunities (ACS Symposium Series)

Resistance to conventional pesticides has been growing rapidly among all pests. Furthermore, there is increased public concern about the safety of conventional pesticides, and increased governmental restrictions have resulted in the need to identify new compounds that are safe and effective in controlling pests that are of concern to agriculture as well as to public and animal health. Biopesticides may aid in the control of such pest...

Chemical Technology in Antiquity (ACS Symposium Series)

"The chapters all provide a generally reliable narrative introduction to their respective topics, with careful documentation from secondary literature. [...] students without knowledge of chemistry will find clear introductions to most of the important technologies of the ancient world that made use of chemical processes." -- John Peter Oleson, Metascience

Chemistry, Process Design, and Safety for the Nitration Industry (ACS Symposium Series)

This is the third ACS Symposium Series book dealing with nitration, the first two having been published in 1976 and 1996. The nature of this 2013 publication reflects the changes worldwide in process safety management, and geographies of research and manufacturing. The contributions to this book were first presented at the 243rd ACS National Meeting in San Diego, California in March of 2012, in the Industrial and Chemical Engineering...

Trajectories of Chemistry Education Innovation and Reform

The Symposium Series of books from the American Chemical Society (ACS) serves as a repository of important trends in chemical science and education. This collection provides, in essence, a set of snapshots of the field and helps establish matters of sufficient importance to merit discussion, by highlighting the topics of specific symposia held at ACS scientific meetings. This particular volume fits within this paradigm well. Funding ...

State-of-the-Art and Emerging Technologies for Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibody Characterization, Volume 2

The focus of this volume is the characterization of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). The book focuses both on general aspects, techniques, and regulatory concerns common to any recombinant protein, as well as specific analytical results. Volume 2 therefore serves as both a foundational body of NISTmAb product knowledge as well as an evaluation of its suitability as an industry-appropriate reference material (RM). In Volume 1, a framewor...
