  • Biopolymer electrolytes : fundamentals and applications in energy storage / Y.N. Sudhakar, M. Selvakumar, D. Krishna Bhat
    QD 382 P64 S83 2018eb

    Biopolymer Electrolytes: Fundamentals and Applications in Energy Storage provides the core fundamentals and applications for polyelectrolytes and their properties with a focus on biopolymer electrolytes. Increasing global energy and environmental challenges demand clean and sustainable energy sources to support the modern society. One of the feasible technologies is to use green energy and green materials in devices. Biopolymer electrolytes are one such green material and, hence, have enormous application potential in devices such as electrochemical cells and fuel cells.

    Features a stable of case studies throughout the book that underscore key concepts and applications Provides the core fundamentals and applications for polyelectrolytes and their properties Weaves the subject of biopolymer electrolytes across a broad range of disciplines, including chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, environmental science, and pharmaceutical science

  • Reaction rate theory and rare events / Baron Peters
    QD 502 P48 2017eb

    Reaction Rate Theory and Rare Events bridges the historical gap between these subjects because the increasingly multidisciplinary nature of scientific research often requires an understanding of both reaction rate theory and the theory of other rare events. The book discusses collision theory, transition state theory, RRKM theory, catalysis, diffusion limited kinetics, mean first passage times, Kramers theory, Grote-Hynes theory, transition path theory, non-adiabatic reactions, electron transfer, and topics from reaction network analysis. It is an essential reference for students, professors and scientists who use reaction rate theory or the theory of rare events.

    In addition, the book discusses transition state search algorithms, tunneling corrections, transmission coefficients, microkinetic models, kinetic Monte Carlo, transition path sampling, and importance sampling methods. The unified treatment in this book explains why chemical reactions and other rare events, while having many common theoretical foundations, often require very different computational modeling strategies.

    Offers an integrated approach to all simulation theories and reaction network analysis, a unique approach not found elsewhere Gives algorithms in pseudocode for using molecular simulation and computational chemistry methods in studies of rare events Uses graphics and explicit examples to explain concepts Includes problem sets developed and tested in a course range from pen-and-paper theoretical problems, to computational exercises

  • Introduction to Heterocyclic Chemistry / Peter A. Jacobi
    QD 400 J33 2019eb
    A unique approach to a core topic in organic chemistry presented by an experienced teacher to students and professionals

    Heterocyclic rings are present in the majority of known natural products, contributing to enormous structural diversity. In addition, they often possess significant biological activity. Medicinal chemists have embraced this last property in designing most of the small molecule drugs in use today. This book offers readers a fundamental understanding of the basics of heterocyclic chemistry and their occurrence in natural products such as amino acids, DNA, vitamins, and antibiotics. Based on class lectures that the author has developed over more than 40 years of teaching, it focuses on the chemistry of such heterocyclic substances and how they differ from carbocyclic systems.

    Introductory Heterocyclic Chemistry offers in-depth chapters covering naturally occurring heterocycles; properties of aromatic heterocycles; π-deficient heterocycles; π-excessive heterocycles; and ring transformations of heterocycles. It then offers an overview of 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions before finishing up with a back-to-basics section on nitriles and amidines.

    Presents a conversational approach to a fundamental topic in organic chemistry teaching Offers a unique look at this core organic chemistry topic via important naturally occurring and/or biologically active heterocycles Based on the author's many years of class lectures for teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level as well as pharmaceutical-industry courses Clear, concise, and accessible for advanced students of chemistry to gain a fundamental understanding of the basics of heterocyclic chemistry
    Introductory Heterocyclic Chemistry is an excellent text for undergraduate and graduate students as well as chemists in industrial environments in chemistry, pharmacy, medicinal chemistry, and biology.

  • Software-assisted method development in high performance liquid chromatography / editors Szabolcs Fekete (University of Geneva, Switzerland), Imre Molnár (Institute of Applied Chromatography, Berlin, Germany)
    QD 79 C454 S64 2019
    This handbook gives a general overview of the possibilities in recent developments in chromatographic retention modeling. As a result of the latest developments in modeling software, several new features are now accessible, opening a new level in HPLC method development.Many of these current possibilities in software assisted liquid chromatographic method modeling for analytical purposes are presented. Several modes of chromatography, including Reversed-Phase Liquid Chromatography (RPLC), Ion Exchange Chromatography (IEX), Hydrophobic Interaction Chromatography (HIC), and Hydrophilic Interaction Liquid Chromatography (HILIC) are explained in detail. For all these chromatographic modes, the most important variables for tuning retention and selectivity are exposed.Beside the industrial and practical benefits of retention modeling, the possibilities in teaching and education are also illustrated. Finally, numerous representative industrial examples are shown, to highlight the benefits, time and cost savings offered by state-of-the-art software assisted HPLC method development.
