Synthesis of Six- and Seven-Membered Heterocycles: The Role of DMF and its Synthesis compares different synthetic approaches using DMF, including the advantages and disadvantages of those reactions, green methods, and the sustainability of reported synthetic methodologies, especially the microwave methods. The book presents several methodologies for the synthesis of six- and seven-membered heterocyclic compounds using dimethylformamide. Users will find the most up-to-date information in this fast-moving field which can be particularly challenging. With DMF drawing the attention of synthetic organic chemists, this book will help readers understand further developments in the uses of dimethylformamide beyond just its use as a polar solvent. As it can be expected that the use of dimethylformamide as a precursor will continue to grow in organic synthesis with new applications in sustainable and green chemistry, this book provides an ideal primer on the topics covered.

Nanotechnology for Oil-Water Separation: From Fundamentals to Industrial Applications explores how nanotechnologically engineered solutions (modified meshes, carbon nanotubes, functionalized fabrics, textile or hybrid elements for bio-membranes, nanofibrous materials, and many more) can be used to remediate current damage to the environment for a better tomorrow. Design and fabrication of low-cost, effective and environmentally friendly micro/nanomaterials exhibiting strong wettability properties and mechanical and chemical stability are examined, along with current research developments and possible future directions, making this book an essential read for researchers, advanced students, and industry professionals with an interest in nanotechnology and sustainable (bio)technologies. The increasing amounts of industrial substances released by petrochemical, steel or gas-generating plants and food-processing factories into water poses an ever more serious environmental threat. Due to the significant adverse impact on the natural ecosystem, aquatic organisms and human health, the scientific community has made its priority to find sustainable methods to separate oil-water mixtures.
