Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants 2nd Edition
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants, 2nd Edition has been hailed as a major contribution to the plant sciences literature and critical acclaim has been matched by global sales success. Maintaining the scope and focus of the first edition, the second will provide a major update, include much new material and reorganise some chapters to further improve the presentation. This book is meticulously organised and richly illustrated, having over 1,000 full-colour illustrations and 500 photographs. It is divided into five parts covering: Compartments, Cell Reproduction, Energy Flow, Metabolic and Developmental Integration, and Plant Environment and Agriculture. Specific changes to this edition include: * Completely revised with over half of the chapters having a major rewrite. * Includes two new chapters on signal transduction and responses to pathogens. * Restructuring of section on cell reproduction for improved presentation. * Dedicated website to include all illustrative material. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants holds a unique place in the plant sciences literature as it provides the only comprehensive, authoritative, integrated single volume book in this essential field of study.

Principles of Physical Chemistry, Second Edition uniquely uses simple physical models as well as rigorous treatments for understanding molecular and supramolecular systems and processes. In this way the presentation assists students in developing an intuitive understanding of the subjects as well as skill in quantitative manipulations. The unifying nature of physical chemistry is emphasized in the book by its organization – beginning with atoms and molecules, and proceeding to molecular assemblies of increasing complexity, ending with the emergence of matter that carries information, i.e. the origin of life, a physicochemical process of unique importance. The aim is to show the broad scope and coherence of physical chemistry.
This book contains authoritative reviews regarding the field of Organometallic Chemistry, written by highly qualified experts within the area, and reviewed by other experts before publication. Because of this high standard, AOC is one of the most cited journals in both Organic and Inorganic Chemistry fields. * high quality of the articles* expertise of authors* careful editing that provides an easy-to-read material
About the Author
Pedro J. P rez (1965) graduated in Chemistry in 1987 in Sevilla. He received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry (1991) at the Universidad de Sevilla, under the direction of Prof. Ernesto Carmona. As a Fulbright Scholar, he then joined Prof. Brookhart’s group at UNC-Chapel Hill (USA) where he started the research related to the use of copper-based catalysts for diazo decomposition. In 1994 he was invited research at DuPont Exptal station (Wilmington, Delaware). In 1993 he moved to a new University founded in Huelva, as an Assistant Professor (1993-1995), later becoming Lecturer (1995) and finally Professor of Inorganic Chemistry (2005). The general research interest of his group is related to the development of late transition-metal complexes for their use as catalysts in transformations with hydrocarbons. He is also responsible of the Homogeneous Catalysis Laboratory, an Associate Unit to the Spanish National Council of Research (CSIC), that is part of the Center for Research in Sustainable Chemistry at the Universidad de Huelva. He received the Inorganic Chemistry Award of the Royal Society of Chemistry of Spain (RSEQ) in 2007. From 2010 he is President of the Organometallic Division of the RSEQ and since 2011 he is also Secretary General of RSEQ. Currently he is also member of the Advisory Boards of Organometallics and European Journal of Inorganic Chemsitry.
A comprehensive and up-to-date overview of alkyne chemistry, taking into account the progress made over the last two decades. The experienced editors are renowned world leaders in the field, while the list of contributors reads like a “Who?s Who” of synthetic organic chemistry. The result is a valuable reference not only for organic chemists at universities and in the chemical industry, but also for biologists and material scientists involved in the modern synthesis of organic compounds and materials.

Professor Barry M. Trost obtained a Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, USA) and directly moved to the University of Wisconsin (USA) where he was promoted to Professor of Chemistry in 1969 and subsequently became the Vilas Research Professor in 1982. He joined the faculty at Stanford (USA) as Professor of Chemistry in 1987 and became Tamaki Professor of Humanities and Sciences in 1990. Professor Trost has received a number of awards, including the ACS Award in Pure Chemistry (1977), the ACS Award for Creative Work in Synthetic Organic Chemistry (1981), the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung Award (1984), Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award (1989), the Belgian Organic Synthesis Symposium Elsevier Award (2000), the Nichols Medal (2000), the Yamada Prize (2001), the ACS Cope Award (2004), and the Nagoya Medal (2008). Professor Trost has been elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Sciences (1982) and a member of the National Academy of Sciences (1980). He has served as editor and on the editorial board of many books and journals, including being Associate Editor of the “Journal of the American Chemical Society” (1974-80). He has held over 125 special university lectureships and presented over 270 plenary lectures at national and international meetings. He has published two books and over 900 scientific articles. He edited the compendium “Comprehensive Organic Synthesis” consisting of nine volumes and serves on the editorial board for the reference databases “Science of Synthesis” (Thieme) and “Reaxys” (Elsevier). Professor Chao-Jun Li received his Ph.D at McGill University (Montreal, Canada) and did a NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University (USA). He was on the faculty at Tulane University (New Orleans, USA) until 2003. Since 2003, he has been at McGill University where he currently holds a Canada Research Chair (in Green Chemistry) and an E. B. Eddy Chair Professorship. He has published over 300 scientific publications and received numerous awards including the US Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award and the Canadian Green Chemistry and Engineering Award. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (Academy of Science) and is an Associate Editor for “Green Chemistry” of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK).
Discover a new generation of organic nanomaterials and their applications
Recent developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology have given rise to a new generation of functional organic nanomaterials with controlled morphology and well-defined properties, which enable a broad range of useful applications. This book explores some of the most important of these organic nanomaterials, describing how they are synthesized and characterized. Moreover, the book explains how researchers have incorporated organic nanomaterials into devices for real-world applications.
Featuring contributions from an international team of leading nanoscientists, Organic Nanomaterials is divided into five parts:
- Part One introduces the fundamentals of nanomaterials and self-assembled nanostructures
- Part Two examines carbon nanostructures—from fullerenes to carbon nanotubes to graphene—reporting on properties, theoretical studies, and applications
- Part Three investigates key aspects of some inorganic materials, self-assembled monolayers, organic field effect transistors, and molecular self-assembly at solid surfaces
- Part Four explores topics that involve both biological aspects and nanomaterials such as biofunctionalized surfaces
- Part Five offers detailed examples of how organic nanomaterials enhance sensors and molecular photovoltaics
Most of the chapters end with a summary highlighting the key points. References at the end of each chapter guide readers to the growing body of original research reports and reviews in the field.
Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of organic nanomaterials, this book is recommended for researchers in chemistry, physics, materials science, polymer science, and chemical and materials engineering. All readers will learn the principles of synthesizing and characterizing new organic nanomaterials in order to support a broad range of exciting new applications.
