Chemical Sciences Roundtable, National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences, "Are Chemical Journals Too Expensive and Inaccessible?

Chemical Sciences Roundtable, National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences, "Are Chemical Journals Too Expensive and Inaccessible?: A Workshop Summary to the Chemical Sciences Roundtable"
Publisher: National Academy Press | 2005 | 44 Pages | ISBN: 0309095905 | PDF | 3.9 MB

On October 25-26, 2005, the Chemical Sciences Roundtable held a workshop to explore issues involving those who use and contribute to chemical literature, as well as those who publish and disseminate chemical journals. As a follow-up to the workshop, a summary was written to capture the presentations and discussions that occurred during the workshop. As a forum to discuss chemistry journals within the larger context of scientific, technical and medical journal publishing, the workshop covered whether chemists and chemical engineers have unique journal needs and, if so, whether these needs are being met in the current journal publishing environment. Workshop participants also tackled how open access publishing might be applied to the chemical literature, such as to provide authors more freedom to distribute their articles after publication and allowing free access to chemical literature archives.

From the Back Cover

Handling of powders and bulk solids is a critical industrial technology across a broad spectrum of industries, from minerals processing to bulk and fine chemicals, and the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Bulk Solids Handling: Equipment Selection and Operation provides an overview of the major technologies involved in the storage and handling of particulate materials from large grains to fine cohesive materials. Topics covered include characterisation of individual particles and bulk particulate materials, silo design for strength and flow, pneumatic conveying systems, mechanical conveying, and small scale operations. Guidance is given on appropriate equipment choices depending on the type of material to be handled, and applications and limitations of current bulk solids handling equipment are discussed. The reader will then be in a better position to diagnose solids handling and processing problems in industry, and to deal with experts and equipment suppliers from an informed standpoint.
With contributions from leading academic and industry experts, the book is essential for anyone who has responsibility for handling, storage, processing or production involving particulate materials. It is designed to be equally applicable to engineers, scientists and technologists, working in for example agriculture, construction, food, bulk and fine chemicals industries, minerals and metals, pharmaceuticals, power generation and waste handling.


Qinguo Fan - Chemical Testing of Textiles

Qinguo Fan - Chemical Testing of Textiles
Woodhead Publishing | 2005 | ISBN: 1855739178 | Pages: 336 | PDF | 2.79 MB

It has long been my desire to contribute to a textbook that is solely devoted to the
chemical analysis of textiles. Thus, when Woodhead Publishing contacted me
about editing this book, I enthusiastically accepted the offer. Now, with the hard
work of a team of contributors who are professors, material researchers and textile
analysts from Canada, Britain, Germany and the United States of America, and the
great assistance offered by the staff at Woodhead Publishing, this book has become
a reality.
The book was initially intended to be read by students in the textile chemistry
field who are supposed to have taken organic chemistry. As realized later, this
book may also serve as a guide for textile professionals working in laboratories for
chemicals testing. Some of these textile professionals may or may not be trained in
this specialized area of chemistry, or, if they were trained, they may have been
working outside the chemistry specialism for a long time. Therefore, the heavy
chemistry content has been reduced and more fundamental chemical concepts and
rudimentary procedures have been introduced. It has not been easy to balance the
theoretical and practical parts of the content. As it is, this book seems more inclined
to the practical with many basic aspects pertaining to the chemical analysis of
textiles. Readers who have an avid chemistry mindset or who want to know all the
detailed procedures, experimental set-up and data analysis could find the references
at the end of every chapter more useful with regard to each individual test
introduced in the chapter. In most cases, the chemical analysis is done with a test
method regulated and updated by a professional organization, like the American
Association of Textile Chemist and Colorists (AATCC), the Society of Dyers and
Colourists (SDC), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and
the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Some test methods may
be adopted by a few organizations.
It should, however, be noted that a particular chemical property of materials can
be tested in different ways. The test method introduced in this book may not
necessarily be the most suitable one for the job. Sometimes, a new test method may
have to be developed or established for new materials coming to the market. For
example, nanotechnology can now be employed to process textiles. The claimed
advantages could be novel properties, combined properties by a simple operation
or smart properties (intelligent responsive properties). The challenge is how to
evaluate the performances and properties associated with nanotechnology. At
present, no easily accessible means is available to determine simply whether or not
the ‘nano’ textiles are processed using nanotechnology or if they possess nanomaterials.
Of course, the traditional properties of ‘nano’ textiles can still be tested
by the currently available methods, but we want to know something about the
‘nano’ properties in this case. Therefore, test methods must, of necessity, be
updated and developed to reflect the trend of new materials. Users of the test
methods should be aware of the latest developments and keep using appropriate
and updated test methods.

Product Description:

Filled with industrial examples emphasizing the practical applications of crystallization methodologies

Based on the authors' hands-on experiences as process engineers at Merck, Crystallization of Organic Compounds guides readers through the practical aspects of crystallization. It uses plenty of case studies and examples of crystallization processes, ranging from development through manufacturing scale-up. The book not only emphasizes strategies that have been proven successful, it also helps readers avoid common pitfalls that can render standard procedures unsuccessful.

The goal of this text is twofold:

  • Build a deeper understanding of the fundamental properties of crystallization as well as the impact of these properties on crystallization process development.

  • Improve readers' problem-solving abilities by using actual industrial examples with real process constraints.

Crystallization of Organic Compounds begins with detailed discussions of fundamental thermodynamic properties, nucleation and crystal growth kinetics, process dynamics, and scale-up considerations. Next, it investigates modes of operation, including cooling, evaporation, anti-solvent, and reactive crystallization. The authors conclude with special applications such as ultrasound in crystallization and computational fluid dynamics in crystallization. Most chapters feature multiple examples that guide readers step by step through the crystallization of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).

With its focus on industrial applications, this book is recommended for chemical engineers and chemists who are involved with the development, scale-up, or operation of crystallization processes in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries.

Effective Personal Communication Skills for Public Relations (PR in Practice).
219 pages | Publisher: Kogan Page | October 7, 2006 | English | ISBN-10: 074944407X | PDF | 6MB

Make ideas contagious through every channel of communication
Viral marketing -- word-of-mouth marketing that spreads rapidly -- is now mainstream, but some of its concepts are still catching on in the realm of public relations. Drawing partly on the theories of evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, who used the phrase "meme" to describe a self-replicating unit of cultural information, Andy Green shows how contagious ideas --or memes -- can spread through PR communications like a virus. This stimulating, original book shows how to harness the power of communication to send out a message not just virally, but through online traditional channels as well.

Among the more than two-dozen new topics are the underlying principles of GC-MS, GC-MS-MS, LC-MS, and ICP-MS, column chromatographic cleanup, gel permeation chromatography, applications to biological sample matrices, and matrix solid-phase dispersion. The chapter on sample preparation now includes more alternatives to liquid-liquid extraction, highlighting Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME), and Stir Bar Sorptive Extraction (SBSE). The final chapter contains laboratory-tested experiments to practice the techniques appearing in the text. Appendices include a convenient glossary, applications to drinking water, computer programs for TEQA, instrument designs, and useful Internet links for practicing environmental analytical chemists.

Featuring personal insight into the theory and practice of trace analysis from a bench analytical chemist, the second edition of Trace Environmental Quantitative Analysis takes readers from the fundamental principles to state-of-the-art methods of TEQA currently used in leading laboratories.

Nanoscale Calibration Standards and Methods: 

Dimensional and Related Measurements in the Micro- and Nanometer Range 

by Günter Wilkening, Ludger Koenders

Publisher: Wiley-VCH | August 19, 2005 | ISBN: 352740502X | Pages: 541 | PDF | 11 MB

The quantitative determination of the properties of micro- and nanostructures is essential in research and development. It is also a prerequisite in process control and quality assurance in industry. The knowledge of the geometrical dimensions of structures in most cases is the base, to which other physical and chemical properties are linked. Quantitative measurements require reliable and stable instruments, suitable measurement procedures as well as appropriate calibration artefacts and methods. The seminar "NanoScale 2004" (6th Seminar on Quantitative Microscopy and 2nd Seminar on Nanoscale Calibration Standards and Methods) at the National Metrology Institute (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt PTB), Braunschweig, Germany, continues the series of seminars on Quantitative Microscopy. The series stimulates the exchange of information between manufacturers of relevant hard- and software and the users in science and industry.
Topics addressed in these proceedings are

a) the application of quantitative measurements and measurement problems in: microelectronics, microsystems technology, nano/quantum/molecular electronics, chemistry, biology, medicine, environmental technology, materials science, surface processing

b) calibration & correction methods: calibration methods, calibration standards, calibration procedures, traceable measurements, standardization, uncertainty of measurements

c) instrumentation and methods: novel/improved instruments and methods, reproducible probe/sample positioning, position-measuring systems, novel/improved probe/detector systems, linearization methods, image processing.

Nataliya Turova, Vadim G. Kessler - The Chemistry of Metal Alkoxides
Springer | 2002 | ISBN: 0792375211 | Pages: 584 | PDF | 29.52 MB

The study of the chemistry of metal alkoxides, which began more than 100 years ago, is now experiencing a renaissance due to the broad application of these compounds as molecular precursors in the synthesis of advanced technological materials based on simple and complex oxides. The solution of this problem is occupying a wide circle of inorganic chemists, technologists specializing in fine synthesis in nonaqueous media, and those working on the production of films and coatings. The application of metal alkoxides in the first step of sol-gel technology (based on hydrolysis of alkoxides with the subsequent dehydration of the hydrated oxides formed) is addressed in this monograph covering the modern literature devoted to all the steps of this process. This book is devoted to the general questions of the chemistry of metal alkoxides-the synthetic routes to them (both laboratory and technology) physiochemical properties, structure, specific features of single groups of alkoxides, theoretical principles of their use for the preparation of simple and complex oxides by the sol-gel method, and major directions of the application of this method in the preparation of functional materials. Also includes are the derivatives of single elements of first through eighth groups of the Periodic Table. The tables contain the major data on the alkoxides, phenoxides, siloxides, derivatives of polyatomic alcohols, and phenols, -- their composition, structure, preparation techniques, and major physiochemical characteristics. These tables allow the book to be used as a handbook permitting a quick and essentially complete acquaintance with the distinct compounds and the literature describing them.
