* Topics range from basic notations to complex subjects like nucleic acid chemistry and recombinant DNA technology
* Each chapter includes a brief explanation of the concept and covers necessary definitions, theory and rationale for each type of calculation
* Recent applications of the procedures and computations in clinical, academic, industrial and laboratories are cited throughout the text

New to this Edition:
* Updated and increased coverage of real time PCR and the mathematics used to measure gene expression
* More sample problems in every chapter for readers to practice concepts.




A Guide to Safe Material and Chemical Handling (Wiley-Scrivener)

A Guide to Safe Material and Chemical Handling (Wiley-Scrivener).
By Nicholas P. Cheremisinoff

  • Wiley-Scrivener
  • Number Of Pages: 480
  • Publication Date: 2010-03-15
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0470625821
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780470625828

Product Description:

There have been many volumes written that claim to be the most "comprehensive" compendium or on chemical data. These wieldy volumes are often too big and extraneous to be useful to the practicing engineer. This new volume aims to be the most useful "go to" volume for the working engineer, scientist, or chemist who needs quick answers to daily questions about materials or and doesn't want to go on long searches through voluminous tomes or lengthy internet searches. Covering only the most commonly used chemicals in the most important processes in industry,A Guide to Safe Material and Chemical Handling includes industrial chemicals, such as gases, fuels, and , which are not incorporated in most "comprehensive" on materials and chemical properties. Safety plans and procedures that can be implemented by any engineer or plant manager by following the easy, step-by-step instructions in the book are also provided.

Classic and Advanced Ceramics: From Fundamentals to Applications

Classic and Advanced Ceramics: From Fundamentals to Applications.
By Robert B. Heimann

Publisher: Wiley-VCH
Number Of Pages: 573
Publication Date: 2010-07-20
ISBN-10 / ASIN: 3527325174
ISBN-13 / EAN: 9783527325177

Product Description:

Based on the author's lectures to graduate students of geosciences, physics, chemistry and materials science, this didactic handbook covers basic aspects of ceramics such as composition and structure as well as such advanced topics as achieving specific functionalities by choosing the right materials. The focus lies on the thermal transformation processes of natural raw materials to arrive at traditional structural ceramics and on the general physical principles of advanced functional ceramics. The book thus provides practice-oriented information to readers in research, development and engineering on how to understand, make and improve ceramics and derived products, while also serving as a rapid reference for the practitioner. The choice of topics and style of presentation make it equally useful for chemists, materials scientists, engineers and mineralogists.
