Download The Elements: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short by Philip Ball PDF

By Philip Ball

This Very brief creation is an exhilarating and non-traditional method of figuring out the terminology, houses, and type of chemical parts. It strains the background and cultural effect of the weather on humankind, and examines why humans have lengthy sought to spot the ingredients round them.

The publication comprises chapters on specific parts reminiscent of gold, iron, and oxygen, displaying how they formed tradition and know-how. having a look past the Periodic desk, the writer examines our dating with topic, from the easy imaginative and prescient of the Greek philosophers, who believed there have been 4 elements--earth, air, fireplace, and water--to the paintings of modern day scientists in developing components akin to hassium and meitnerium.

Packed with anecdotes, The Elements is a hugely attractive and enjoyable exploration of the basic query: what's the international made up of?

Download Thymic Hormones and Lymphokines: Basic Chemistry and by Robert C. Gallo, Suresh K. Arya, Stephan G. Lindner, Flossie PDF

By Robert C. Gallo, Suresh K. Arya, Stephan G. Lindner, Flossie Wong-Staal (auth.), Allan L. Goldstein (eds.)

The 3rd Annual Symposium on overall healthiness Sciences attracted over four hundred scientists from 15 international locations. It was once held on the nationwide Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. The subject of this assembly was once "Thymic Hormones and Lymphokines: simple Chem­ istry and medical Applications." The assembly emphasised the state-of-the-art with reference to chemistry, mech­ anism of motion, and medical functions of thymic hormones and lymphokines. as well as the 5 classes, the chairmen of every consultation have been requested to arrange a synthesis and review of every of the periods. a number of the chairmen used this time to summarize the recent fabric provided whereas others addressed vital parts of clash and terminology. The chairmen of the plenary classes ready brief precis papers which were included into this quantity on the finish of every significant part. We additionally invited a number of of the scientists who took half within the poster shows to publish brief papers. as well as the medical classes, there have been awards and lectures. One, the Abraham White distinctive technology Award, used to be given to Dr. Robert C. Gallo, who gave the keynote lecture. He used to be famous for his pioneering examine and clinical contributions to our figuring out of the law of hematopoietic cellphone differentiation and the position of viruses within the improvement of human leukemias.

By Dr. Edwin Weber, Prof. Dr. Fritz Vögtle (auth.), Professor Dr. Fritz Vögtle, Dr. Edwin Weber (eds.)

The medical and sensible curiosity in coronands (crown ethers), cryptands, podands as complexing brokers for cations in addition to for anions and impartial low molecular species is indisputable 1,2). The chemistry of crown compounds is gradually expanding. approximately 250 unique papers facing crown chemistry seemed in basic terms in 1980. New molecules· with crown ether homes are continually synthesized and new functions discov,?red. due to loss of area, just a small variety of the unique guides is males­ tioned the following. therefore, within the literature compilation just some, yet appropriate works are chosen for every bankruptcy. every time attainable, reference is made to reports or review-like articles by myself through which origin,al works could be consulted. The stories given lower than ref. 1) are thought of to be the main proper. The formulae provided within the figures may be understood as consultant constructions outlining a selected box. 2 category of Oligo-/Multidentate impartial Ligands and in their Complexes this day, a contrast is made among the classical ring oligoethers (crown ethers) and monocyclic coronands, oligocyclic round cryptands and the acyclic podands with recognize to topological elements 3). This type and the topology are illustrated in Fig. 1, every one determine representing the minimal variety of donor atoms and chain segments attribute of every category of compounds. Multidentate mono­ cyclic ligands with any kind of donor atoms are known as coronands ("crown compounds"), whereas the time period crown ether might be reserved for cyclic oligoethers completely containing oxygen as donor atom.

Download Biogeochemical Processes at The Land-Sea Boundary by Pierre Lasserre PDF

By Pierre Lasserre

There's an intuitive trust between scientists that every estuary or lagoon is exclusive and varied. Similarities do exist, even though, and this ebook makes an attempt to spotlight a few universal homes and maybe a few leading edge perspectives on biogeochemical approaches, and organic fluxes that are of critical main issue within the knowing of the land-sea boundary. The contents are dependent upon lectures given at a Seminar organised because the clinical part of the seventeenth normal assembly of SCOR, held on the Station Biologique de Roscoff, France, on 22-24 October 1984. the unique lectures were considerably prolonged and revised so one can provide a fuller remedy of the topic. The contributions establish vital techniques influencing (I) Behaviour of chemical species, (II) Nutrient biking and mechanisms of natural differences and (III) Uptake of hint components by means of residing structures. the relationship among terrestrial and oceanic platforms is a sensible one and the implications of this linkage at the very huge number of coastal structures are profound.

By Lars Öhrström

Este es un libro sobre el descubrimiento y el desastre, l. a. guerra y los angeles ciencia - y l. a. relación entre los seres humanos y los elementos químicos que componen nuestro planeta. Lars Öhrström nos acerca a una gran variedad de elementos, del azufre al plomo, a través de historias de personas ordinarias y extraordinarias de todo el mundo. Nos enteraremos de por qué el dirigible Hindenburg fue trágicamente llenado de hidrógeno en lugar de helio o qué quitaesmalte de uñas jugó un papel clave en los angeles primera guerra mundial. En cada capítulo, nos conoceremos las propiedades específicas de cada elemento y de los conceptos y principios que han permitido a los científicos darles un uso práctico. Estas son las fascinantes (y a veces terroríficas) historias de l. a. química en acción.

By Peter J. Quinn, Xiaoyuan Wang

This quantity supplies an updated account of the houses of the sessions of lipids which are situated within the membranes of all cells. those lipids shape the fundamental structural elements of the plasma membrane liable for keeping the unique identification of the mobile from its atmosphere and mediating the circulate of significant solutes into and out of the mobile. The membrane lipids additionally characterize reservoirs of signaling molecules that modulate a number of physiological methods. The presentation offers a balanced standpoint of what's presently recognized in regards to the functionality of those lipids in fit cells and tissues and what effects keep on with malfunctions of their synthesis and metabolism.
