The Chemistry of Radical Polymerization 3rd Edition
The Chemistry of Radical Polymerization, Third Edition, is completely updated with the latest trends, terminology, and applications in this fast-moving field. This comprehensive reference contains crucial foundational information that will help users understand the factors which control radical polymerization, along with practical content to support the design of polymer syntheses, and critical evaluation of the latest developments and their impact on research and practice. Covering vital processes that chemistry researchers, practitioners, and advanced students need to know, the book includes new content on the growing area of heterogeneous polymerization, including emulsion, miniemulsion, microemulsion, and dispersion polymerization. This new edition also explores recent progress in methods of control, including those not based on reversible deactivation radical polymerization or living radical polymerization. The coverage of RAFT polymerization has also been thoroughly updated to match the current IUPAC recommendation as well as to correspond with this exciting area of active research.

Focused, streamlined, and designed throughout to meet the needs of the one-term GOB Lab course, this manual features 14 easy-to-follow experiments (6 general chemistry, 4 organic chemistry, and 4 biochemistry) that include clear directions and illustrate the key concepts important for an allied health career. Pre- and post-lab questions for every experiment test the reader’s ability to apply concepts.
About the Author
Joseph M. Landesberg is a professor in the Department of Chemistry at Adelphi University. He came to Adelphi University in the fall of 1966. Prior to that, he was at Columbia University where he took a postdoctoral position with Professor Gilbert Stork. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University where he wrote his thesis under the guidance of Professor Roy A. Olofson. Dr. Landesberg did his undergraduate work at Rutgers University.

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 .
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.
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.
