PNIE Principles of Biochemistry 5th Edition
Principles of Biochemistry provides a concise introduction to fundamental concepts of biochemistry, striking the right balance of rigor and detail between the encyclopedic volumes and the cursory overview texts available today. Widely praised for accuracy, currency, and clarity of exposition, the Fifth Edition offers a new student-friendly design, an enhanced visual program, new Application Boxes, contemporary research integrated throughout, and updated end-of-chapter problems.
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.
Explains how GIS enhances the development of chemical fate and transport models
Over the past decade, researchers have discovered that geographic information systems (GIS) are not only excellent tools for managing and displaying maps, but also useful in the analysis of chemical fate and transport in the environment. Among its many benefits, GIS facilitates the identification of critical factors that drive chemical fate and transport. Moreover, GIS makes it easier to communicate and explain key model assumptions.
Based on the author’s firsthand experience in environmental assessment, GIS Based Chemical Fate Modeling explores both GIS and chemical fate and transport modeling fundamentals, creating an interface between the two domains. It then explains how GIS analytical functions enable scientists to develop simple, yet comprehensive spatially explicit chemical fate and transport models that support real-world applications. In addition, the book features:
- Practical examples of GIS based model calculations that serve as templates for the development of new applications
- Exercises enabling readers to create their own GIS based models
- Accompanying website featuring downloadable datasets used in the book’s examples and exercises
- References to the literature, websites, data repositories, and online reports to facilitate further research
- Coverage of important topics such as spatial decision support systems and multi-criteria analysis as well as ecological and human health risk assessment in a spatial context
GIS Based Chemical Fate Modeling makes a unique contribution to the environmental sciences by explaining how GIS analytical functions enhance the development and interpretation of chemical fate and transport models. Environmental scientists should turn to this book to gain a deeper understanding of the role of GIS in describing what happens to chemicals when they are released into the environment.
