Atmospheric Pollution is a theme which is becoming increasingly important as the discussion on global warming becomes ever more relevant. This textbook introduces the different concepts of Atmospheric Pollution and also introduces the reader to the underlying principles of physics and chemistry, which are constants in this discussion.
A Wet Look At Climate Change
The term “Climate Change” has become popular but is not new to our planet. Our climate changes, sometimes dramatically, sometimes gradually, but it always changes. We hear about the wettest month on record, countrywide floods, record high and low temperatures, global warming...how do these changes in weather affect things around us? “A Wet Look at Climate Change” introduces the basics about moisture in air, which is the driving force for our weather. The subsequent chapters cover a range of everyday examples showing the impact these weather changes have around our home, garden and workplace.
All the basic concepts of pharmacokinetics (PKs) are described, with an emphasis on understanding what parameters such as bioavailability, volume of distribution and clearance tell us about the behaviour of a particular drug. The use of PKs in both a drug development and a clinical setting are covered. The essential mathematical basis of PKs is explained, but excessive mathematical complexity is avoided. For all key equations, practical examples of their use are provided. There are plenty of practice questions (along with model answers). Additional spreadsheets are provided on the net.
Maths for Chemists - Chemistry Maths 1
Chemistry Maths 1 teaches Maths from a “chemical” perspective and is the first of a three part series of texts taken during a first-year university course. It is the Maths required by a Chemist, or Chemical Engineer, Chemical Physicist, Molecular Biologist, Biochemist or Biologist. Tutorial questions with fully worked solutions are used and structured on a weekly basis to help the students to self-pace themselves. Coloured molecular structures, graphs and diagrams bring the text alive. Navigation between questions and their solutions is by page numbers for use with your PDF reader.
This e-book book aimed at undergraduates and practitioners who have an interest in food process engineering. It is designed to provide an overview of the many operations associated with the processing of raw food materials to produce products which are creative, palatable and safe to eat. It covers basic food chemistry and ingredients through to mixing, unsteady steady state heat transfer in freezing for preservation and thermal processing and sterilization.
Bioethanol: Science and technology of fuel alcohol
Biofuels play significant roles in decarbonisation of our future energy needs and act to mitigate deleterious impacts of greenhouse gas emissions. Bioethanol - fermentation-derived fuel alcohol - is the world’s leading transportation biofuel and is currently produced from cereal and sugarcane feedstocks. However, the future lies with more sustainable fermentation substrates, including bio-wastes from agriculture and woody biomass.
Hydrocarbons - Physical Properties and their Relevance to Utilisation
The book is concerned with properties such as density, refractive index, acoustic impedance and electrical conductivities of hydrocarbon substances. Pure organic compounds feature early in the book chiefly to set benchmark values for the various physical properties later discussed for hydrocarbon products. These include petroleum products across the entire distillation range as well as petroleum residue. Natural gas condensate, liquefied gases, coal tars, biodiesels and alcohol fuels also feature in the book.
Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry - Key ideas and their experimental basis
The aim of the book is to introduce students to the basic ideas of inorganic chemistry and to show where they come from. It starts from chemical observations, and develops the ideas from these. It complements texts that start from the quantum theory of atoms and molecules and take a more physical approach.
The three-dimensional shape of a protein determines its function. The shape of proteins can change by small or large amounts; another term for shape is conformation.
Molecular Conformations introduces the fundamental physical and biochemical concepts that determine the conformation of a protein. The book starts by describing how DNA is converted into proteins and then continues with those factors that influence conformational change in a protein.
Polymer Science and Technology
This book covers polymerisation and polymers at a basic level, with emphasis on the delineation of the concepts and their relevance in practical terms. Highlighting the attractive features of polymers as engineering materials, it should appeal to those involved in learning and teaching as well as those working in the polymer-related industry. Topics include polymerisation, production methods for polymers and physical, mechanical and thermal properties. As a textbook it can be covered in two halves, concentrating on polymer-chemistry and polymer-physics related topics.
