Transportation systems and vehicles play an important role in modern life. They would not be possible without fuel. This handbook gives a comprehensive overview of various types of fuels used to power vehicles of all kinds and the processes to produce these fuels. The main focus is on automotive fuels, however, aviation and marine fuels are described as well as alternative and novel fuels, such as ethanol, methanol, natural gas and others.
The book is not only valuable for students and graduated scientists from various industries like oil and automobile companies, but also for journalists interested in this field.
About the Author
Barbara Elvers studied chemistry at the University of Hamburg from 1970 to 1979 where she received her PhD in carbohydrate chemistry. After working in a research project in biochemistry at the university hospital in Hamburg she moved to the United States of America in 1980 where she was employed as a visiting scientist at SRI, Palo Alto, in the life science department. She started working for VCH in 1985, first as a freelance translator of textbooks in chemistry, and from 1987 onwards as an editor of Ullmann’s Encyclopedia. One of the main subjects of her editorial work was the acquisition of authors and articles in the field of energy generation and fuels. Dr. Elvers has been living in Hamburg since 1996, working as an editor for Ullmann’s and other reference works and for the Wiley-VCH journal Starch/Stärke.
The Eighth Edition of Zumdahl and DeCoste’s best-selling INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY: A FOUNDATION combines enhanced problem-solving structure with substantial pedagogy to enable students to become strong independent problem solvers in the introductory course and beyond. Capturing student interest through early coverage of chemical reactions, accessible explanations and visualizations, and an emphasis on everyday applications, the authors explain chemical concepts by starting with the basics, using symbols or diagrams, and conclude by encouraging students to test their own understanding of the solution. This step-by-step approach has already helped hundreds of thousands of students master chemical concepts and develop problem-solving skills. The book is known for its focus on conceptual learning and for the way it motivates students by connecting chemical principles to real-life experiences in chapter-opening discussions and “Chemistry in Focus” boxes.

About the Author
Dr. Manoj Desai began his career in the pharmaceutical industry at Pfizer Inc, Central Research Division, Groton, CT (1986-1994) before moving to Chiron Corporation (1994-2003) as Director of medicinal chemistry; he was promoted to Vice President, lead discovery and medicinal chemistry (2000). In October 2003, he was appointed Vice President of medicinal chemistry at Gilead Sciences. At Pfizer, he was responsible for the medicinal chemistry efforts that lead to the discovery of oral Substance P antagonist CP-99994 which became the basis for the discovery of the new anti-emetics. At Chiron he formulated macrobead technology for the synthesis and screening of compound libraries for HTS and built the medicinal chemistry department with focus on kinase inhibitors. At Gilead, he was an active proponent to develop a pharmacoenhancer devoid of antiviral activity to improve the pharmacokinetics of integrase inhibitor elvitegravir. These efforts led to the discovery of Cobicistat which is one of components of StribildTM that was approved by FDA in August 2012 for the treatment of HIV infection. He is co-inventor on patents of Cobicistat (US 8,148,374), StribildTM and Ledipasvir (US 8,273,341; Phase III). Furthermore, his group at Gilead has advanced numerous compounds into clinical development for the treatment of antiviral diseases, cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Dr. Desai obtained Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the M.S. University of Baroda in 1981 working with Dr. Sukh Dev and then carried out post-doctoral fellowships at Purdue University working with Professor Herbert C. Brown (19981-1983) and at Harvard University with Professor Elias J. Corey (1983-1986). During his postdoctoral studies, he worked on natural product isolation, development of asymmetric synthetic methods using organoboranes and total synthesis of complex natural products such as retigeranic acid, ?-trans bergamotene and ginkgolide B. He has co-authored >60 publications in peer reviewed journals and is an inventor on >25 issued patents. Furthermore, Dr. Desai is Editor-in-Chief for Annual Reports in Medicinal chemistry (2012-current), and have co-edited Comprehensive Medicinal Chemistry II (volume 7). In 2013, he co-edited book titled “Successful Strategies for the Discovery of Antiviral Drugs .
