Applied Plastics Engineering Handbook: Processing and Materials (Plastics Design Library)

Applied Plastics Engineering Handbook: Processing and Materials (Plastics Design Library)
Myer Kutz

A practical reference for all plastics engineers who are seeking to answer a question, solve a
problem, reduce a cost, improve a design or fabrication process, or even venture into a new
market. Applied Plastics Engineering Handbook covers both polymer basics - helpful to bring
readers quickly up to speed if they are not familiar with a particular area of plastics processing -
and recent developments - enabling practitioners to discover which options best fit their
requirements. Each chapter is an authoritative source of practical advice for engineers, providing
authoritative guidance from experts that will lead to cost savings and process improvements.
Throughout the book, the focus is on the engineering aspects of producing and using plastics. The
properties of plastics are explained along with techniques for testing, measuring, enhancing and
analyzing them. Materials and additives are described as well as their characteristics and effects.
The technologies and machinery used in processing operations are covered with reference to
product design. And recent developments in a cross-section of applications demonstrate in a
pragmatic way, the opportunities as well as the limitations of plastics.
. Practical introductions to both core topics and new developments make this work equally valuable for newly qualified plastics engineers seeking the practical rules-of-thumb they don't teach you in school, and experienced practitioners evaluating new technologies or getting up to speed on a new field.
. The depth and detail of the coverage of new developments enables engineers and managers to gain knowledge of, and evaluate, new technologies and materials in key growth areas such as biomaterials and nanotechnology.
. This highly practical handbook is set apart from other references in the field, being written by engineers for an audience of engineers and providing a wealth of real-world examples, best practice guidance and rules-of-thumb.


Mathematics for Chemistry & Physics

Mathematics for Chemistry & Physics
George Turrell

Chemistry and physics share a common mathematical foundation. From elementary calculus to vector analysis and group theory, Mathematics for Chemistry and Physics aims to provide a comprehensive reference for students and researchers pursuing these scientific fields. The book is based on the authors many classroom experience. 

Designed as a reference text, Mathematics for Chemistry and Physics will prove beneficial for students at all university levels in chemistry, physics, applied mathematics, and theoretical biology. Although this book is not computer-based, many references to current applications are included, providing the background to what goes on "behind the screen" in computer experiments.


Human Toxicology of Chemical Mixtures, Second Edition

Human Toxicology of Chemical Mixtures, Second Edition
Harold Zeliger

In this important reference work, Zeliger catalogs the known effects of chemical mixtures
on the human body and also proposes a framework for understanding and predicting their
actions in terms of lipophile (fat soluble) / hydrophile (water soluble) interactions. The
author's focus is on illnesses that ensue following exposures to mixtures of chemicals
that cannot be attributed to any one component of the mixture.
In the first part the mechanisms of chemical absorption at a molecular and
macromolecular level are explained, as well as the body's methods of defending itself
against xenobiotic intrusion. Part II examines the sources of the chemicals discusssed,
looking at air and water pollution, food additives, pharmaceuticals, etc. Part III, which
includes numerous case studies, examines specific effects of particular mixtures on
particular body systems and organs and presents a theoretical framework for predicting
what the effects of uncharacterized mixtures might be. Part IV covers regulatory
requirements and the need to adjust recommended exposure levels for products
containing mixtures. It also contains recommendations on how to limit exposure to
mixtures in the products we use and on how to limit release of mixtures into the
environment.Providing brief summaries of each mixture and its effects, Zeliger provides a
comprehensive reference, a jumping off point for professionals (with extensive chapter
bibliographies) and an introduction to the topic for those studying traditional toxicology.
Addressing many inadequately understood illnesses and conditions such as asthma,
infertility and cancer, it will also be of interest to health professionals, environmental
scientists and lawyers.Presents a theoretical framework for predicting the effects of chemical mixtures
for which no specific data exists (this predictive aspect is important due to the
vast number of different potential chemical combinations - far too many to
comprehensively catalog).
. A quick and convenient source of hard to come by data on the rapidly developing
field of chemical mixtures, for groups including chemists and engineers,
toxicologists, health professionals and environmental scientists.
. New and updated material comprises over 30% of this timely new edition, which
includes the latest research data alongside an expanded introduction to the science
and art of predicting the toxicological properties of chemical mixtures.

Thermodynamics – Kinetics of Dynamic Systems

Thermodynamics – Kinetics of Dynamic Systems

Handbook of Nuclear Chemistry: Vol. 1: Basics of Nuclear Science; Vol. 2: Elements and Isotopes: Formation, Transformation, Distribution; Vol. 3: … Nuclear Energy Production and Safety Issues

This revised and extended 6 volume handbook set is the most comprehensive and voluminous reference work of its kind in the field of nuclear chemistry. The Handbook set covers all of the chemical aspects of nuclear science starting from the physical basics and including such diverse areas as the chemistry of transactinides and exotic atoms as well as radioactive waste management and radiopharmaceutical chemistry relevant to nuclear medicine. The nuclear methods of the investigation of chemical structure also receive ample space and attention.
The international team of authors consists of scores of world-renowned experts - nuclear chemists, radiopharmaceutical chemists and physicists - from Europe, USA, and Asia. The Handbook set is an invaluable reference for nuclear scientists, biologists, chemists, physicists, physicians practicing nuclear medicine, graduate students and teachers - virtually all who are involved in the chemical and radiopharmaceutical aspects of nuclear science.
The Handbook set also provides further reading via the rich selection of references.

Encyclopedia of Separation Science

Encyclopedia of Separation Science

The Encyclopedia of Separation Science is the most comprehensive resource available on the theory, techniques, and applications of separation science. The work presents information on three levels. The first volume contains Level 1, which provides a broad overview of the theory of the 12 main categories of separation techniques. Volumes 2-4 (Level 2) expand coverage with detailed theoretical and technical descriptions of particular techniques. The remaining Volumes 5-9 (Level 3) cover applications of these techniques from the micro to the macro, and also from the analytical laboratory bench to large-scale industrial processes. Volume 10 consists mainly of the index. Initial access to the online version offering extensive hypertext linking and advanced search tools is available with purchase. Ongoing access is maintained for a minimum annual fee. The Encyclopedia of Separation Science is the first truly comprehensive work covering the whole of separation theory, methods, and techniques. This encyclopedia will be invaluable to researchers and professionals across a wide range of areas in academia and industry.
