This unique book, drawing on the author’s lifetime experience, critically evaluates the extensive literature on the field of Metal-Catalysed Reactions of Hydrocarbons. Emphasis is placed on reaction mechanisms involving hydrogenation, hydrogenolysis, skeletal and positional isomerisation, and exchange reactions. The motivation for fundamental research in heterogeneous catalysis is to identify the physicochemical characteristics of active centres for the reaction being studied, to learn how these may be modified or manipulated to improve the desired behavior of the catalyst, and to recognize and control those aspects of the catalyst's structure that limit its overall performance. By restricting the subject of the book to hydrocarbons, Bond has progressively developed the subject matter to include areas of importance both to researchers and to those working in the industry.
Since 1945, radiologists have turned to Caffey's Pediatric Diagnostic Imaging for the most comprehensive coverage and unparalleled guidance in all areas of pediatric radiology. Continuing this tradition of excellence, the completely revised 12th edition - now more concise yet still complete - focuses on the core issues you need to understand new protocols and sequences, and know what techniques are most appropriate for given clinical situations. "This text will obviously be of great interest not only to radiologists, also to those who work with children including all pediatric specialties. It is also extremely useful in countries with resource poor setting where there is shortage of well-tra...
Neuroanaesthesia is perhaps the branch of anaesthesia in which the expertise and competence of the anaesthetist can most significantly influence patient outcome. High quality research has driven clinical practice and led to an increasingly multimodal and multidisciplinary approach to patient care. All aspects of the modern practice of neuroanaesthesia are covered in this up-to-date, highly illustrated textbook. Aimed at the general anaesthetic department and ICU, as well as specialist neurosurgical and trauma units, this book covers the key areas needed for a firm understanding of the principles of neuroanaesthesia, such as functional anatomy, advances in bedside monitoring and imaging techniques, and then goes on to address practical issues of diagnosis and patient care. Best clinical practice is described in detail throughout, and the authors also evaluate some of the latest techniques of patient monitoring currently available, as well as looking at avenues for research that will lead to changes in practice in the future. It is an essential, one-stop review of modern neuroanaesthesia and neurocritical care for anaesthetists, intensivists and surgeons at all levels of practice.
Written and edited by leading international authorities in the field, this book provides an in-depth review of knowledge of tuberculosis of the central nervous system, with emphasis on clinical, diagnostics, and therapeutic features. Tuberculosis, one of the most lethal diseases in human history, still poses a serious threat in the world together with economic and social problems, although a great progress in the fight against this infectious disease in the last century. It covers the full range of tuberculosis of central nervous system and the chapters are organized into six sections: (1) the cranial; (2) the spinal; and (3) the peripheral portions of the nervous system; followed by (4) a section on the laboratory studies in tuberculosis; (5) a section on medical and surgical therapy; and (6) further insights into tuberculosis. This comprehensive reference book will be an ideal source for neurosurgeons, neurologists and specialists upon infectious diseases seeking both basic and more sophisticated information and surgical procedures relating to the complications associated with tuberculosis involving the spine, brain and peripheral nerves.
