Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) have several applications, such as encompassing gas adsorption, separation, catalysis, sensing, chemical warfare reagent degradation, and the removal of pollutants from aqueous media. The pressing challenge of extracting common pollutants, including heavy metal ions, anions, oil, and radionuclides from water sources is a critical issue due to the widespread problem of environmental contamination. Various approaches have been explored for this purpose, such as sorbents, chemical precipitation, and traditional membrane separation. However, these methods often suffer from inadequate selectivity and low pollutant uptake. Developing water-stable MOFs is the key to advancing effective water purification techniques, but the primary challenge lies in crafting MOF structures that can maintain their stability when exposed to water. Water-Stable Metal-Organic Frameworks (WSMOFs) presents water-stable metal-organic frameworks for mitigating environmental pollutants, i.e. sensing and degradation/removal applications to protect the ecological system both environmental and aquatic life from various types of toxic pollutants released from industries.

Over the past 50 years, more than 20,000 natural compounds have been identified in the marine environment, with an increasing focus on marine metabolites as potential sources for developing effective therapeutic agents. The field of marine drug discovery has seen remarkable growth in recent years, with numerous marine-derived therapeutic candidates in various stages of clinical trials or awaiting approval. The ocean is a potential source of natural products with diverse pharmacological properties, including antimicrobial, anticancer, antiviral, antioxidative, and anti-inflammatory activities. However, commercializing marine natural products has been challenging due to low yields and specificity of specialized (secondary) metabolites. Marine Specialized (Secondary) Metabolites and their Diverse Applications provides a broad overview of marine specialized metabolites and their potential in various industries. With comprehensive coverage, relevance to current trends, interdisciplinary approach, and practical applications, this book includes specific compounds or organisms, with a particular focus on addressing the challenges and limitations associated with them.

Antimicrobial Peptides: A Roadmap for Accelerating Discovery and Development covers the most important efforts of scientists and engineers worldwide to accelerate the process of discovery, production, and eventual market penetration of more potent antimicrobial peptides. These efforts have been fueled by emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and data science, molecular and CFD simulations, easy-to-use process simulation packages, microfluidics, 3D-printing, among many others. Such technologies can now be implemented and scaled up quickly and at relatively low cost in low-budget production facilities, critical to moving to sustainable and marketable products worldwide.Discovering novel antimicrobial peptides rationally and cost-effectively has emerged as one of the significant challenges of modern biotechnology. Thus far, this process has been tedious and costly, resulting in molecules with activities far below those needed to address the current challenge of microbial resistance to antibiotics that takes the lives of thousands of people around the world every year. Finally, the book also highlights how multidisciplinary teams have assembled to address the challenges of manufacturing, biological testing, and clinical trials to finally reach complete translation.

Neutrons, X-rays, and Light: Scattering Methods Applied to Soft Condensed Matter, Second Edition addresses the possibilities provided by scattering techniques in the study of soft matter. It fills the gap between fundamental scattering processes, which are described by the general theoretical framework of elastic and quasi-elastic interaction of radiation with matter and state-of-the-art applications to specific soft matter systems. The first part of the book is dedicated to the use of general principles for the measurement and analysis of scattered intensity: elementary scattering process, data reduction, general theorems, and reciprocal space and its link to structural and dynamical information in direct space.In the second part, methods and techniques are further discussed, including resolution effects, contrast variation, static and dynamic light scattering, quasi-elastic neutron scattering, and reflectometry and grazing incidence techniques. Part three deals with the state of the art of scattering studies of typical soft matter systems (polymers, self-assembled surfactant systems, microemulsions, liquid crystals, colloids, aggregates, biological systems) with dedicated chapters for particle interactions, and modelling. Part four highlights special applications, from turbid media to scattering under external constraints, and industrial applications.

Deep Eutectic Solvents highlights well-established research and technology on applications of DESs in corrosion sciences, protein chemistry, and organic synthesis, as well as separation science. This book provides state-of-the-art research that will revolutionize modern practices. Neoteric solvents have been proposed as a better substitute to these harmful organic solvents, and scientists have come up with various neoteric solvents in the last few years like Deep Eutectic solvents (DESs). DESs are defined as a system formed from a eutectic mixture of Lewis or Brønsted acids and bases with various ionic species- whereas ionic liquids (ILs) consist of a discrete anion and a cation.DESs stand out as a greener and cheaper neoteric solvent as compared to ILs. DESs are denser than water and fairly polar, thus can be utilized as non-aqueous substitute to water in many separation processes. DESs have very high distribution coefficient of solutes, and even dissolves gases and metal oxides selectively. They also readily dissolve organic macromolecules, thereby becoming useful in pharmacological applications.
