Non-First Order Degradation and Time-Dependent Sorption of Organic Chemicals in Soil

Pesticides are essential tools for crop protection and disease prevention. These agricultural chemicals (and their associated uses) continue to be subject to increased regulatory scrutiny, even though modern pesticides have become safer, more effective, and target specific. Pesticide persistence, off-target movement to ground and surface water systems, and potential for impacting non-target organisms are the major focus for regulator...

Szycher's Handbook of Polyurethanes, Second Edition

"Overall, the 2nd ed of Szycher's Handbook of Polyurethanes offers excellent and crucial new information on polyurethanes technology. It is of essential help for readers to understand better all aspects relevant to this field, from fundamentals of polyurethanes to their development, applications and commercial aspects. Remember Robert Quillen’s quote that ‘if we wish to make a new world we need to have the material ready'? From this ...

5 Steps to a 5 AP Chemistry, 2014-2015 Edition

Five steps to a 5 are really well written and take a more friendly approach to these AP subjects than the Barron's ones. They talk things out in a logical and relatable manner and make good examples to draw on to explain concepts. While this book doesn't have that many practice tests, the answers are well responded to and this book is well paired with a Barron's one just for the practice tests. The planner this book has is really goo...

Charged Aerosol Detection for Liquid Chromatography and Related Separation Techniques

The first book devoted exclusively to a highly popular, relatively new detection technique Charged Aerosol Detection for Liquid Chromatography and Related Separation Techniques presents a comprehensive review of CAD theory, describes its advantages and limitations, and offers extremely well-informed recommendations for its practical use. Using numerous real-world examples based on contributors’ professional experiences, it provides p...

Refractories Handbook

... There is a wealth of detail in this work, a collection of contribution from 17 authors, including Schacht himself, which will probably be more useful in the hands of those whose jobs are to assess refractory failures, develop containment systems that are not currently commercially available, or to challenge standard conventions with the aim of making long-term improvements. The book will be a useful addition to any library on ref...
