Inorganic Chemistry Fourth Edition provides essential information for students of inorganic chemistry and is updated throughout. The presentation of topics is made with an effort to be clear and concise so that the book is portable and user friendly. The text emphasizes fundamental principles—including molecular structure, acid-base chemistry, coordination chemistry, ligand field theory, and solid state chemistry. It is organized into five major themes (structure, condensed phases, solution chemistry, main group and coordination compounds) with several chapters in each. There is a logical progression from atomic structure to molecular structure to properties of substances based on molecular structures, to behavior of solids, etc.The textbook contains a balance of topics in theoretical and descriptive chemistry. For example, the hard-soft interaction principle is used to explain hydrogen bond strengths, strengths of acids and bases, stability of coordination compounds, etc. Discussion of elements begins with survey chapters focused on the main groups, while later chapters cover the elements in greater detail. Each chapter opens with narrative introductions and includes figures, tables, and end-of-chapter problem sets.This new edition features updates throughout, with an emphasis on bioinorganic chemistry and a new chapter on nanostructures and graphene. More in-text worked-out examples encourage active learning and prepare students for their exams.This text is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level students enrolled in the Inorganic Chemistry course. This core course serves Chemistry and other science majors. The book may also be suitable for biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, and other professionals who wish to learn more about this subject area.

Green Building: An Engineering Approach fills a void in green building which has good textbook options for practitioners, architects, and sustainability experts, but not an engineering focused textbook focused on green building. This new text takes an engineering approach to evaluating green building techniques, systems, and materials. The book examines the built environment from inside out, looking at minimizing environmental impacts while also considering the economics and energy use and efficiency. While not a test-prep book, it will provide the knowledge foundation that will help prepare the students to take the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design accreditation exam.As students are often unclear on the evolving employment prospects in this field, particularly for the engineer, the textbook also features six case studies showing different career pathways for engineers in this arena.

Typical pathways for modelling interatomic interactions involve the plotting of potential energy against radial displacement, but such approaches can be computationally costly. Canonical Approaches to Interatomic Interactions: Theory and Applications provides an overview of the field and presents a replicable, novel force-based approach that demonstrates accurate and quantitative interrelations between weakly bound and strong covalently bound intermolecular interactions.Beginning with an introduction to Potential Energy Surfaces (PES) and modern approaches in Part 1, Part 2 goes on to describe Canonical Approaches in detail, including methodologies and data to allow replication. Part 3 then goes on to outline some key applications, before future directions are discussed in Part 4.Sharing the insight of its progressive authors, Canonical Approaches to Interatomic Interactions: Theory and Applications is an informative guide for all those working with interatomic interactions and PES, including researchers in in chemical kinetics and bonding, molecular mechanics, quantum chemistry and molecular modelling.

Data-driven Analysis and Modeling of Turbulent Flows explains methods for the analysis of large fields of data, and uncovering models and model improvements from numerical or experimental data on turbulence. Turbulence simulations generate large data sets, and the extraction of useful information from these data fields is an important and challenging task. Statistical learning and machine learning have provided many ways of helping, and this book explains how to use such methods for extracting, treating, and optimizing data to improve predictive turbulence models. These include methods such as POD, SPOD and DMD, for the extraction of modes peculiar to the data, as well as several reduced order models.This resource is essential reading for those developing turbulence models, performing turbulence simulations or interpreting turbulence simulation results.

Supercritical Fluids in Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Technologies: From Controlled Drug Release Formulation describes the well-studied, but previously not well summarised supercritical fluid technologies useful for pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. Supercritical technologies have been described over the last 20 years as innovative and capable of solving many problems relating to conventional chemical processes such as extraction, crystallization, foaming, drying precipitation, aerogels fabrications. This is generally true but there remain exceptions and limitations.Featuring extensive case studies and examples presenting from lab-scale to industrial scale, the author highlights the innovations of the described processes, but also their drawbacks, such as the difficulties to generalize the process application to several drugs and biomolecules. The book provides a critical overview on the necessity of process optimization case-by case that have limited the use of these dense gases in larger scale pharmaceutical or biomedical industrial production.Supercritical Fluids in Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Technologies: From Controlled Drug Release Formulation to Tissue Engineering will appeal to graduate and postdoc level students and researchers primarily in chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, and chemical engineering. R&D scientists at pharma and biotech companies and postdoc students studying advanced pharmaceutical technologies for drug delivery and tissue engineering, medical biomedical technology and bioengineering will also find the book useful for reference.

The book's chapters are structured to be easier to understand and more accessible to the target audience. Split into three distinct sections, it examines foundational knowledge surrounding DFT, covering key concepts such as the Thomas-Fermi model and Hohenberg-Kohn-Sham theory, 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.
