For the first time: A comprehensive Overview on Resins! Resins nowadays are still the subject of much interest, with applications in many branches of industrial production. Increasingly stringent specific market requirements and the demand for better quality control and product consistency mean that chemists, engineers, and application technicians are not merely satisfied with the knowledge of the physical data of the basic chemical products they are using. The raw materials, their production processes and special physical and chemical characteristics relevant to their applications are increasingly of interest. This book points out the extent to which raw materials, manufacturing processes, and chemical composition of resins influence their application and performance.
The text is designed for undergraduates interested in the functions of the human body as preparation for medical school, or for graduate programs in health-related disciplines. The book covers the basics of physiology while avoiding excessive overlap with introductory biology or neuroscience.
Organic chemistry is often perceived to be incomprehensible and disjointed from general chemistry. And while scientists ponder the complexity of nature and provide us with concepts of bonding, descriptions of organic mechanisms, and explanations of reactivity in functional groups, there is another reason why organic chemistry is so important—organic chemistry makes up our life. In What’s the Matter?—Personalizing Principles of Organic Chemistry, Dr. Nichole Coleman uses everyday imagery to personalize organic principles in a way that will help students understand not only how atoms behave but also how atoms and molecules feel. The goal is to help students of organic chemistry and those generally interested in chemistry understand the basic chemical principles of organic chemistry through the power of metaphor and analogy.
Describing exciting new developments in the field of organic molecular materials which have transformed the use of materials in the modern world in the last 20 years or so, the focal point of 'Functional Organic and Polymeric Molecular Materials' is the concept of 'molecular functionality - macroscopic reality'. That is, the close relationships between the properties of isolated, discrete molecules and those of assembled arrays of molecules in thin films or crystals. Organic chemistry provides materials researchers with the wonderful opportunity to design bulk materials whose properties at the macroscopic level reflect closely the modelled or actual behaviour of individual molecules or small...
"A thorough grounding in statistics is necessary for a career in any experimental science, but many students find themselves intimidated by the subject. Hampton and Havel have written this text with these students in mind. While providing the theory and assumptions necessary for a deep understanding of statistics, they make it approachable and keep it relevant to the interests of biology students. Their examples and exercises show how to choose the appropriate statistical method for a particular hypothesis and how to execute that method using problems encountered by real-world biologists. The second edition has been ambitiously updated and reorganized, facilitating clearer connections between topics and improving clarity of those that are logically distinct."--BOOK JACKET.
This revised workbook/lab text consists of 21 projects that can be executed with readily available materials, a minimum of elaborate equipment and a reasonable amount of preparation time. Early projects deal with biochemistry and cytochemistry; the middle ones focus on organelles and their physiology; and later activities explore more advanced molecular topics such as restriction mapping strategies. New to this edition: a concise section on statistics covering the mean, standard deviation and standard error; and a chapter designed to enable students to write up their work as a lab report.
