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.
Geophysical Monitoring as A Means to Carbon Capture and Storage and the Energy Transition involves four sections: What is the Energy Transition and why storage so important; selecting sites for storage; advanced monitoring technology; and moving forward to integrating Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) within the Energy Transition. To provide the public and others with the confidence to move forward with a structured and cost-effective energy transition, this book provides the necessary evidence that we can store CO2 safely and effectively and use this as a significant component of the energy transition.Geophysical Monitoring as A Means to Carbon Capture and Storage and the Energy Transition is written by experts in the field who have practiced the science and engineering associated with subsurface CCS for years. CCS is an integral component of the new energy transition. Science, engineering, and technology applications are important for site selection, characterization and monitoring to assure safe storage in the subsurface and energy sustainability in the future.
Characterization of Micro and Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications is a helpful guide for industry researchers, academicians, regulatory experts and material scientists working in the field of pharmaceuticals, cosmeceuticals, nutraceuticals, agriculture, food, fragrance, and in the chemical industries. It aims to provide a one-stop resources on all the analytical techniques used in the field of micro and nanoparticles evaluation and characterization. The book's chapters bring together knowledge on current analytical methodologies, limitations and advances in the in vitro analysis field.Users from the equipment industry will benefit from its innovations by understanding the needs of researchers and the challenges of current techniques. With the expectation of "high-quality data" essentially dependent on the analytical methodology applied for characterization, this is integral to success. For routine products like tablets, capsules, and solutions, the regulatory guidelines, product-specific monographs, and pharmacopoeial annexures are set and "standard of operation." However, for nano-micro pharmaceuticals, regulatory guidelines are still evolving.
Treatise on Geochemistry, Third Edition, 12 volume set, is an invaluable resource for geoscientists and others seeking to understand the origin, evolution, and functioning of our inhabited world, in service of a sustainable future.Our need to understand our planet is being reshaped by two ongoing scientific revolutions: the discovery of thousands of exoplanets and the advent of the Anthropocene. These seemingly disparate revolutions challenge us to understand what makes a planet habitable and how inhabited planets work. Geochemical knowledge and discovery are at the heart of this challenge, the crossroads where all geoscience subdisciplines meet – much as chemistry is often said to be the central science, geochemistry is the “central geoscience”. Treatise on Geochemistry fills the gap between mature and established geochemical knowledge and the rapidly evolving frontiers of the field.
