Already a rapidly growing field, virtual and augmented reality have the potential to become a revolutionary part of the chemistry education, dissemination and communication toolbox, improving accessibility and engagement for learners, giving researchers new ways to disseminate their work, and helping non-scientists responsible for funding and policy understand and engage with complex topics with ease. Virtual and Augmented Reality in Chemistry Education, Dissemination and Communication provides a snapshot of currently available options and explains how educators and researchers can go about designing, finding and applying these tools. Beginning with an introduction to the topic, Virtual and Augmented Reality in Chemistry Education, Dissemination and Communication goes on to explore the unique challenges and opportunities afforded by these approaches, providing a solid introduction to the fundamental principles of the technologies available, outlining common issues and discussing how to overcome them. The information is supported with case studies by educators and researchers working in different areas of chemistry with different aims, experience levels and budgets, providing practical examples of what can be achieved and helping users either get started with VR/AR, or improve their use of these tools. Written by a team of experts with practical experience of developing, adapting and applying these tools to address a highly varied range of STEM problems, Virtual and Augmented Reality in Chemistry Education, Dissemination and Communication is an insightful guide to this rapidly growing field for anyone interested in enhancing their chemistry teaching or communication, developing new methods of disseminating their research, or understanding the needs of chemistry researchers in this area.

Kinetics of Photoinduced Reactions

  • 1st Edition
  • August 1, 2027
  • Gonzalo Angulo + 2 more
  • English
The fruitful interaction between the fields of chemical kinetics and photophysics has led to a spectacular increase in our fundamental understanding of reactivity. Significant developments in the technology of light creation, manipulation, and chemical kinetic theory have been made. The field of kinetics more broadly has also greatly evolved in recent years, especially in the field of bimolecular reactions, but these developments need to be made more accessible to a wider cohort of experimentalists. Kinetics of Photoinduced Reactions addresses the current gap between theory and experimental techniques in chemical kinetics. The book provides a single resource which can be used not only to guide performing measurements, but also undertake data analysis and facilitate comparison with modern physical theories. Many laboratories in fundamental and applied research now make use of photophysical methods; very often, these laboratories are formed by practitioners of other areas with little training or knowledge of what are nonetheless often deceivingly simple methods. This book collects current knowledge from both a theoretical and practical perspective, aiming to provide learners and practitioners in all the associated fields (kinetics, photochemistry, materials science, catalysis) with a single, fundamental resource and a practical working guide. The text can be used to design and perform experiments in photokinetics and to properly analyse the results for extracting quantitative information. In addition to that, the very informative field of magnetic field effects in photochemical reactions is also addressed, given that it provides with unique tools to unveil reaction mechanisms and provides a connection to emerging fields, such as quantum biology and spintronics. Kinetics of Photoinduced Reactions is written primarily for graduate students, staff in higher education and researchers in the fields of physical chemistry, chemical physics, materials science, and catalysis.

Properties of Polymers

  • 5th Edition
  • July 1, 2027
  • Pellegrino Musto + 3 more
  • English
Properties of Polymers, originally written by D. W. van Krevelen (1914-2001), has been an authoritative, widely cited book for decades that has been used all over the world since its first edition way back in 1972. Its primary objective has always been to correlate properties with chemical structure and to describe methods that permit the estimation and prediction of numerical properties from chemical structure including the solid, liquid, and dissolved states of polymers. This fifth edition constitutes a major update in view of the major advancements in the Polymer Science domain since the previous edition published in 2009. It maintains the core objectives and the spirit of the previous editions, grounded in the concept of additive group contributions and a strong pedagogical approach to a reference work. Newly written chapters directly address the critical, forward-looking issue of sustainability considerations for polymers, whilst there is reference throughout the book to important new topic areas including bioplastics, composites, and hybrids. In addition, a significant focus of this new edition is the description and presentation of contemporary approaches for the prediction of polymer properties and emerging polymer structures. New chapters have been introduced dealing with the latest developments in the field of computational chemistry modelling with reference to the topics covered in each part. These approaches, based on machine learning, can be used for the generation, modelling, and update of polymer libraries to support functional materials discovery. Unavailable at the time when the book was first conceived and during later editions, they nonetheless fit perfectly within the spirit of the book and – in a sense – were anticipated by the outstanding vision of D. W. van Krevelen. Properties of Polymers, Fifth Edition is written for a range of scientists active in the polymer science field: primarily chemical engineers, polymer technologists and polymer reaction engineers; material scientists and material science engineers in the laboratory, in engineering departments at universities and in development teams, as well as advanced undergraduate, graduate and PhD students seeking to gain a comprehensive understanding of polymer chemical structure.

Polymerization Kinetics

  • 1st Edition
  • March 1, 2027
  • Eduardo Vivaldo-Lima + 1 more
  • English
This book provides a much-needed resource for the Polymer Reaction Engineering (PRE) field covering polymerization kinetics, mathematical modelling, and polymer reactor design. Literature on this topic has historically been very fragmented; for example, information on crucial, recently developed areas such as Controlled Radical Polymerization (CRP) or Reversible-Deactivation Radical Polymerization (RDRP) and its variants in particular have been historically poorly documented and explained. The chapters are designed to assist the reader in understanding the problems encountered in the design and operation of polymerization reactors, giving them a knowledge of polymerization reaction kinetics and the ability to model these processes effectively. They show the aspiring modeler how to construct a reaction mechanism, create determination system parameters such as rate coefficients, (numerically) integrate sets of chemical kinetic equations, and effectively analyze the results. The book has a particular emphasis on mathematical modelling and its application to polymer reactors; while there are many courses and texts on numerical techniques, the application of these to a particular area can be a challenge. This text, with its explicit focus on polymer kinetics, will greatly ease the path to an effective and accurate model. Polymerization Kinetics is written primarily for upper undergraduate/graduate level students and researchers/academics in polymer chemistry and chemical engineering as well as materials/polymer science and engineering, with relevance to adjacent and overlapping fields where polymerization issues are addressed including biochemistry, biochemical engineering, physics, and general engineering areas.
