Visible Light-Driven Organic Synthesis covers the recent cutting-edge investigations in the field of visible light-driven organic synthesis in a single comprehensive volume. It provides information on rigorously selected reaction schemes and covers new reactions and new methods under visible light photocatalysis. It enlists more than 100 important synthetic strategies/methodologies with particular emphasis on useful reactions for organic synthesis under the mild reaction conditions reported in recent times involving carbon-carbon (C-C) and carbon-heteroatom bond-forming reactions resulting in a wide spectrum of chemical compounds, providing an outstanding source of information concerning industrial applications.The chapters are classified based on various photocatalysts that have found direct applications in organic synthesis by carrying out different kinds of organic reactions. Each chapter is dedicated to a particular photocatalyst, and each selected reaction is dealt with in a compact manner through point-wise discussion under distinct sub-headings covering the reaction type, reaction conditions, bond-forming information reaction strategy involved, general reaction scheme, examples of representative entries with chemical structures and physical properties, a suggested plausible mechanism, critical views, and literature. In addition, visible light-mediated self-sensitized organic transformations that took place without any external photocatalysts have also been covered.This book is immensely helpful to chemistry students, teachers, researchers, academicians, and chemical/agrochemical industry people to access the latest information and advances on visible light-driven organic synthesis developments.

Electrochemical Potassium Storage: Principles, Materials, and Technological Development explores a variety of battery technologies based on electrochemical potassium storage. The book covers the principles of potassium-ion batteries (organic and aqueous electrolytes), potassium metal anode batteries, potassium-sulfur (selenium) batteries, and potassium-oxygen batteries, as well as the development of electrode materials and battery cells.Batteries using potassium ions as the charge carrier to store energy operate via different electrochemical mechanisms than lithium-based batteries and thus exhibit different performance strengths, potentially leading to diverse market applications. This is particularly important as we search for environmentally and economically sustainable alternatives to conventional lithium-ion batteries.

Organic Synthesis, Fifth Edition provides a reaction-based approach to this important branch of organic chemistry. Updated and accessible, this eagerly-awaited revision offers a comprehensive foundation for graduate students coming from disparate backgrounds and knowledge levels, to provide them with critical working knowledge of basic reactions, stereochemistry and conformational principles. This reliable resource uniquely incorporates molecular modeling content, problems, and visualizations, and includes reaction examples and homework problems drawn from the latest in the current literature. There have been advancements in organic reactions, particularly organometallic reactions, and there is a need to show how these advancements have influenced current organic synthesis. The goal is to revise and update the examples of reaction examples taken from the synthesis literature from about 2017-2023. The reactions illustrate those that are used most often in modern organic synthesis, but recent examples will show their current relevance.  Where new approaches and new reactions have been developed for organic synthesis, examples will be added as new material.

Density Functional Theory: Fundamental Theory, Key Methods, and Applications provides a thorough and detailed explanation and overview of this important computational quantum mechanical modeling method and its applications. chapters are structured to be easier to understand and more accessible to the target audience. Split into three distinct sections, the book examines foundational knowledge surrounding DFT, covering key concepts such as the Thomas-Fermi model and Hohenberg-Kohn-Sham theory, looking at exchange-correlation functionals, the advantages and disadvantages of DFT compared to MO theory and other methods before exploring areas of future DFT development.The second section then examines practical methods and approaches for DFT, looking at the types of density functionals such as LSDA, GGA and meta-GGA functionals, hybrid functionals, DFTB methods, dispersion corrected functionals, Time-Dependent DFT and the Plane-wave approach. It also looks at relations between DFT and ab initio molecular dynamics and the QM/MM approach. The final section then focuses on applications and some useful case studies of use of DFT in different areas, whilst weighing up strengths and weaknesses in such applications.

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.
