The Analytical Chemistry of Cannabis, Second Edition provides analytical chemistry methods that address the latest issues surrounding cannabis-based products. Since the first edition was published in 2015, the cannabis industry and their portfolio of recreational and medicinal products has continued to grow and evolve rapidly. The plethora of marketed strains of cannabis and cannabinoid-containing products, combined with the lack of industry standards and labelling requirements, adds to the general perception of poor-quality control and limited product oversight. The methods described in this leading-edge volume help to support the manufacturing, labelling, and distribution of safe and consistent products with known chemical content and demonstrated performance characteristics. The book treats analytical chemistry within the context of the diverse issues surrounding medicinal and recreational cannabis in a manner designed to foster understanding and rational perspective in non-scientist stakeholders as well as scientists who are concerned with bringing a necessary degree of order to a field now characterized by confusion and contradiction. The second edition will provide an update to the basic information regarding chemistry and pharmacology of cannabis and cannabinoids and will further illustrate how analytical chemistry and scientific methods can address, inform, and eventually resolve the variety of challenges faced by industry, consumers, regulators, and researchers are currently experiencing. The Analytical Chemistry of Cannabis, Second Edition is written for a broad spectrum of analytical chemists, pharmacologists, medical doctors, clinical trials specialists, public health officials, international food and drug monitoring agencies, forensics specialists, law enforcement officers. It will also be invaluable to advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses in pharmacy, pharmacology, experimental therapeutics, analytical chemistry, and forensics.

Computational Methods for the Multiscale Modelling of Soft Matter

  • 1st Edition
  • October 1, 2025

  • English
Due to the hierarchical organization of morphology in soft materials and their slow dynamics, a single modelling technique does not suffice to simulate them. The wide range of modelling approaches available span many time and length scales, making it challenging for newcomers to the field to know how to critically assess the tools and to determine which is most appropriate for any given problem. This book provides a concise and clear description of a variety of simulation methods to model these ubiquitous materials. The list of techniques includes numerical and molecular modelling ones and covers several time and length scales. Along with the fundamental concepts of the theory behind the methods, a comprehensive set of examples taken from the broad pool of soft materials is included. These exemplify how, thanks to the increased computational resources nowadays available to almost any research group, computational methods have become a powerful tool to sit alongside other experimental characterizations and show their increasing relevance for the manufacturing sector. Chapters illustrate how modelling techniques can be used to aid interpretation of experimental data, and how experiments can be used to parameterise models. In addition to enabling informed decisions to be made about the modelling tools to adopt for a given problem, the book will enable those who might already be experts in one technique to transition to other tools more easily. This will become increasingly important as multiscale tools become increasingly sophisticated and sufficiently well developed to be used by more casual users of simulation tools. Bringing together all these modelling approaches and applications into one coherent volume, Computational Methods for the Multiscale Modelling of Soft Matter provides a one-stop resource that is written primarily for postgraduate students and researchers in materials science, computational physics and chemists and chemical engineering interested in learning about simulation methods for soft materials as polymers, surfactants, and colloids.

  • English
Supercritical Fluid Chromatography and Extraction defines the concept of contemporary practice in supercritical fluid chromatography and extraction and how it should be implemented in laboratory science for analysis, isolation, and production. Supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) is a rapidly developing laboratory technique for the separation and identification of compounds in mixtures. Significant improvements in instrumentation have rekindled interest in SFC in recent years and enhanced its standing in the scientific community. Many scientists are familiar with column liquid chromatography and its strengths and weaknesses, but the possibilities brought to the table by SFC are less well-known and are underappreciated.Supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) has been widely used for several decades, especially in the food industry, but is now diversifying its application fields. This book is a valuable resource for chemical engineers and chemists working with supercritical fluid at both preparative and process-scale applications; this includes researchers, academics and students working in various fields. This book is also a great introduction for anyone interesting in beginning their work within the fields of SFC and SFE to consolidate their knowledge and improve their skills.

Coordination Chemistry of s-Block Metals

  • 1st Edition
  • September 1, 2025
  • Masashi Hojo
  • English
Coordination Chemistry of s-Block Metals: New Aspects and Its Role in Solution Reactions covers the reaction chemistry and coordination chemistry of s-block metal ions in common solutions, crystallization of s-block metal compounds from solutions and their structures, and the biochemistry of s-block ions in living things. The complex formation of s-block metal ions with crown ethers was discovered by J. C. Pederson in 1967, and since then, host-guest chemistry of s-block metal ions have been highly developed. In recent years, many lighter metal coordination polymers have been synthesized actively. In this book, some “salt effects” or abnormal phenomena are accounted for in terms of coordination interaction with s-block metal ions in solution. The mechanism of enhanced oxidation ability of dilute nitric acid is discussed and the dissolution of pure gold in seawater with nitric acid is demonstrated. This important reference book will be useful to inorganic chemists, specifically those working in solution chemistry, main group metal chemistry and supramolecular chemistry, both in industry and academia.
