This book enables readers to see the connections in organic chemistry and understand the logic. Reaction mechanisms are grouped together to reflect logical relationships. Discusses organic chemistry as it is applied to real-world compounds and problems. Electrostatic potential plots are added throughout the text to enhance the recognition and importance of molecular polarity. Presents problems in a new “Looking-Ahead” section at the end of each chapter that show how concepts constantly build upon each other. Converts many of the structural formulas to a line-angle format in order to make structural formulas both easier to recognize and easier to draw.

This text relies on only introductory level physics and chemistry as the foundation for understanding liquid crystal science. Liquid crystals combine the material properties of solids with the flow properties of fluids. As such they have provided the foundation for a revolution in low- power, flat-panel display technology LCDs. In this book, the essential elements of liquid crystal science are introduced and explained from the perspectives of both the chemist and the physicist.; The text begins with an historical account of the discovery of liquid crystals and continues with a description of how different phases are generated and how different molecular architectures affect liquid crystalline properties. The rest of the book is concerned with understanding and explaining the properties of the various types of liquid crystals, and in the final part of the book, the technology of LCDs is discussed and illustrated.

Wenn es knallt und stinkt, dann ist Chemie im Spiel! "Chemie für Dummies" macht deutlich, dass Chemie nicht nur aus Formeln, sondern vor allem aus unzähligen interessanten Stoffen, Versuchen und Reaktionen besteht. In diesem etwas anderen Chemie-Buch lernen Sie die Grundlagen der Chemie kennen und erfahren, wo sich chemische Phänomene im Alltag bemerkbar machen. John T. Moore macht für Sie so schwer vorstellbare Begriffe wie Atom, Base oder Molekül begreiflich und zeigt, wie man mit dem Periodensystem umgeht. Mit Übungsaufgaben am Ende eines jeden Kapitels können Sie dann noch Ihr Wissen überprüfen.

Dieses Lehrbuch wendet sich an Studenten der Physik, der Physikalischen Chemie und der Theoretischen Chemie. Aufbauend auf Grundkenntnissen der Atom- und Quantenphysik vemitteln die Autoren den Stoff, der zum Grundwissen eines jeden Physikstudenten gehört. Für den Studenten der Chemie bedeuten die in diesem Buch vorgestellten Konzepte das theoretische Grundgerüst für sein Fachgebiet. Dieses Gerüst befähigt ihn, den ungeheuren Erfahrungsschatz der Chemie auf wenige Prinzipien, nämlich die der Quantentheorie, zurückzuführen. Zwei untrennbar miteinander verknüpfte Themenbereiche werden behandelt: die chemische Bindung und die physikalischen Eigenschaften der Moleküle. Erstmals behandelt ein Lehrbuch die Molekülphysik und Quantenchemie in dieser Kombination mit der Zielsetzung, das Grundlegende und Typische herauszuarbeiten, und so dem Studenten einen Überblick über dieses so wichtige und reizvolle Gebiet zu vermitteln. Darüber hinaus vermittelt das Buch Ausblicke auf neue Entwicklungen, etwa die Erforschung der Photosynthese, die Physik supramolekularer Funktionseinheiten und die molekulare Mikroelektronik.

An Introduction to the Physical Chemistry of Food

Familiar combinations of ingredients and processing make the structures that give food its properties. For example in ice cream, the emulsifiers and proteins stabilize partly crystalline milk fat as an emulsion, freezing (crystallization) of some of the water gives the product its hardness and polysaccharide stabilizers keep it smooth. Why different recipes work as they do is largely governed by the rules of physical chemistry. This textbook introduces the physical chemistry essential to understanding the behavior of foods. Starting with the simplest model of molecules attracting and repelling one another while being moved by the randomizing effect of heat, the laws of thermodynamics are used to derive important properties of foods such as flavor binding and water activity. Most foods contain multiple phases and the same molecular model is used to understand phase diagrams, phase separation and the properties of surfaces. The remaining chapters focus on the formation and properties of specific structures in foods – crystals, polymers, dispersions and gels. Only a basic understanding of food science is needed, and no mathematics or chemistry beyond the introductory college courses is required. At all stages, examples from the primary literature are used to illustrate the text and to highlight the practical applications of physical chemistry in food science.

Biological Inorganic Chemistry: A New Introduction to Molecular Structure and Function, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive discussion of the biochemical aspects of metals in living systems. The fascinating world of the role of metals in biology, medicine and the environment has progressed significantly since the very successful Second Edition of the book published in 2012. Beginning with an overview of metals and selected nonmetals in biology, the book supports the interdisciplinary nature of this vibrant area of research by providing an introduction to basic coordination chemistry for biologists and structural and molecular biology for chemists. Having built this accessible foundation, the book progresses to discuss biological ligands for metal ions, intermediary metabolism and bioenergetics, and methods to study metals in biological systems. The book also covers metal assimilation pathways; transport, storage, and homeostasis of metal ions; sodium and potassium channels and pumps; magnesium phosphate metabolism and photoreceptors; calcium and cellular signaling; the catalytic role of several classes of mononuclear zinc enzymes; the biological chemistry of iron; and copper chemistry and biochemistry. In addition, the book discusses nickel and cobalt enzymes; manganese chemistry and biochemistry; molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, and chromium; non-metals in biology; biomineralization; metals in the brain; metals and neurodegeneration; metals in medicine and metals as drugs; and metals in the environment. Now in its Third Edition, this popular and award-winning resource highlights recent exciting advances and provides a thorough introduction for both researchers approaching the field from a variety of backgrounds, as well as advanced students. Includes a thorough survey of metals in biological systems: in the human body, in medicine and in the environment Previous winner (Second Edition) of the 2013 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) from the Text and Academic Authors Association Features new sections: an overview of the different functions of essential metal ions; toxic metals in diagnosis and therapeutics; crystal and ligand field theory and their limitations; molecular orbital theory; genetic and molecular biological approaches to study metals; more complex cofactors and their biosynthesis; photosynthetic oxidation of water; man-made environmental pollution; and metals as poisons

This innovative split version of INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY gives students a solid foundation of the chemistry of the human body, consistently demonstrating that a strong background in molecular structure and properties leads to better understanding of biochemical interactions. The strength of this book is its readability and its application to normal human biochemical pathways, as well as its discussion of biochemical conditions present in diseases. This textbook is identical to the longer book by this author called General, Organic, and Biochemistry with these exceptions: it contains fewer chapters and those chapters are numbered differently than they are in the longer book. OWL does not have a separate course (with the eBook or without eBook) for the shorter book, so links on this page to purchase access will take you to the longer book.
