Perry's Chemical Engineers' Handbook

Perry's has improved since the 6th edition of the mid-80's. The eighth edition does what it is supposed to do: provide a broad coverage of our sprawling profession. I like it that it provides comparison tables for equipment allowing an engineer to identify which unit operation works best for a given material or operating conditions. Also, the superior graphics have returned. There has been some re-shuffling of sections and the number...

Materials under Extreme Conditions: Molecular Crystals at High Pressure

High-pressure materials research has been revolutionized in the past few years due to technological breakthroughs in the diamond anvil cell (DAC), shock wave compression and molecular dynamic simulation (MD) methods. The application of high pressure, especially together with high temperature, has revealed exciting modifications of physical and chemical properties even in the simplest molecular materials. Besides the fundamental impor...

Polyhydroxyalkanoates : Biosynthesis, Chemical Structures and Applications

This book opens with an exposé on employing extremophiles as polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) producers. The authors suggest that extremophiles may be easily subjected to a long-term continuous cultivation processes, which considerably enhances overall productivity while reducing the energy demand in biopolymer production. Conversely, a range of challenges remain, including improving the metabolic capability of extremophiles, recycling of ...

Carbon, Nitrogen and Phosphorus Cycling in Forest Soils

The majority of carbon stored in the soils of the world is stored in forests. The refractory nature of some portions of forest soil organic matter also provides the slow, gradual release of organic nitrogen and phosphorus to sustain long term forest productivity. Contemporary and future disturbances, such as climatic warming, deforestation, short rotation sylviculture, the invasion of exotic species, and fire, all place strains on th...

Bioethanol and Beyond : Advances in Production Process and Future Directions

Bioethanol and Beyond: Advances in Production Process and Future Directions discusses the advances in the production process of bioethanol, ranging from first to fourth generation bioethanol. Bioethanol is currently applied besides simple fuels (biofuel): it is mixed with other fuels, such as gasoline and diesel, and used for generating renewable fuels, such as hydrogen. Advances in the industrial bioethanol (first and second generat...

Handbook of Colloid and Interface Science, Volume 1

Zum Stellenwert der Erinnerungspolitik als durchaus zweischneidiges Instrument der Herrschaftssicherung - nicht nur in kolonisierten Gesellschaften! - leistet diees Buch einen herausragenden Beitrag. --Werner Ruf in: MGZ 72/2013 Die Arbeit ist auf unnachgiebige Weise analytisch und zugleich ein Lesevergnügen. Während sie die historische Erinnerungsforschung grundsätzlich voranbringt, setzt sie neue Maßstäbe für eine politische Kultur...
