A collection of fundamental formulae and definitions in plasma physics vital to anyone with an interest in plasmas or ionized gases, whether in physics, astronomy or engineering. Ranging over plasma waves, flows, beams and jets, instabilities, particle drifts and kinetic theory, model equations and parametric data, this handbook will become an indispensable quick reference to the formulae needed for the active plasma researcher.
The Wiley Encyclopedia of Chemical Biology is an authoritative new work whose goal is to illuminate the crucial role of chemistry and chemical techniques in the life sciences. The encyclopedia will adopt an inclusive editorial approach, encompassing fundamental and blue-sky science as well as those areas of research that have more immediate medical or commercial applications. The scope and structure of the work will reflect the multidimensional character of chemical biology, focusing in particular on the fundamental science of biological structures and systems, the use of chemical and biological techniques to elucidate that science, and the applications of this knowledge in areas as diverse as drug discovery, sensor technology, and catalysis. Major topics areas covered in the encyclopedia: Chemical Views of Biology Biomolecules within the Cell Chemistry of Biological Processes and Systems Chemical Biology of Cellular Compartments Synthetic Molecules as Tools for Chemical Biology Technologies and Techniques in Chemical Biology Applications of Chemical Biology
Continuing the tradition of providing significant and interesting procedures, Organic Syntheses, Collective Volume XII is a compilation of revised editions of Annual Volumes 85 through 89. The contents of this volume are organized by primarily by reaction type, with the precise classification made according to the bias of the editor, who attempted to ascertain the primary purpose or utility of the procedure.
"A thoroughly updated and expanded new edition, this work features a logical, detailed, and self-contained coverage of the latest materials characterization techniques. Reflecting the enormous progress in the field since the last edition, this book details a variety of new powerful and accessible tools, improvements in methods arising from new instrumentation and approaches to sample preparation, and characterization techniques for new types of materials, such as nanomaterials. Researchers in materials science and related fields will be able to identify and apply the most appropriate method in their work"--
An authoritative reference on the processing and finishing of polymeric materials for scientists and practitioners Owing to their versatility and wide range of applications, polymeric materials are of great commercial importance.
