Chemistry of Love and Sex


When the chemistry between two people is right, it’s right. But it may not be random. This book looks beyond romance to explore the chemical underpinnings of what attracts one person to another, examining chemical phenomena and the molecules associated with endogenous hormonal mechanisms and brain neurotransmission—the basis of many emotions associated with love, passion, and sex. Chemistry of Love and Sex demonstrates how these variables interact and play upon each other during varying phases of human relationships. External factors that may influence love and sex, such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food are also considered.

Address the design and synthesis of a comprehensive compilation of P(III) ligands Design and Synthesis for homogeneous catalysis. You’ll not only focus on the well-known traditional ligands that have been explored by catalysis researchers, but also promising ligand types that have traditionally been ignored mainly because of their challenging synthesis. Each ligand class is accompanied by detailed and reliable synthetic procedures. Often the rate-limiting step in the application of ligands in catalysis is the synthesis of the ligands themselves, which can often be very challenging and time consuming.

Bringing together current advances and in-depth reviews of bio-based industrial products and agricultural biotechnology, Biocatalysis and Biomolecular Engineering examines the recent energy and food crises and points out the importance of using bioCHING T.

Since work-up procedures in industry are both time- and energy-consuming processes, the interest in solid phases for industrial purposes is very high. For this reason, fast and simple synthesis has become a major focus of research over the last few years. While many books cover solid phase synthesis and combinatorial synthesis, this guide is unique in exclusively covering the other aspects of solid-phase synthesis. As such, it covers virtually everything you need to know—from supported reagents to scavengers resins, and the synthesis of natural products.

This is the first handbook to compile essential silicon-containing reagents and make use of the leading reagent database e-EROS. The book’s focus is on three key synthetic approaches with the greatest impact: use of silicon as a “temporary tether” by unifying a reactive pair of functional groups and taking advantage of their template-biased intramolecular cyclization; the specific use of the silane functionality as a hetero t-butyl group, sometimes referred to as the use a “fat proton”; and the use of the Brook rearrangement as an “anion relay stratagem.” Edited by Philip L.

Surfactants from Renewable Resources

John B. Vincent

mikael Kjellin, ingegärd Johansson, Editors

Most surfactants today are readily biodegradable and low-toxic to the aquatic environment—the two criteria for green surfactants. However, there is still interest in finding more renewable sources for surfactants and there are ways of making the building blocks for these surfactants from natural sources. This text focuses on bio-based products that have the potential to improve sustainability of natural resources and environmental quality, while competing on an economic level, and brings together, in one source, information on new biodegradable surfactants with safer properties for modern industrial formulations.

The Bioinorganic Chemistry of Chromium


John Vincent

Take a critical look at what the biochemical data indicate about chromium’s role in the body and the biological mechanisms of its toxicology. Topics covered include: • What do we know about the biochemical roles and mechanisms of chromium? • Is chromium an essential element in the mammalian diet?

• Is chromium(III) effective as a nutraceutical, a therapeutic agent, and as a supplement in animal feed? • What is the biochemistry behind the toxicology of chromium(III) and chromium(VI): the mechanisms of metabolism, genetic and epigenetic effects, and disruption of cell signalling?

Modern Drug Synthesis Jie Jack li, Douglas S. Johnson, Editors

Following Contemporary Drug Synthesis and The Art of Drug Synthesis (Wiley, 2004 and 2007) is this new book that demystifies the process of modern drug discovery for Jie Jack Li practitioners and students. An enhanced Douglas S. Johnson introduction covers areas such as background, pharmacology, SAR, PK/PD, efficacy, and safety. Focusing on the advantages of process synthesis versus the discovery synthetic route, Modern Drug Synthesis features authoritative coverage by distinguished editors and authors (some chapter authors are the actual inventor of the drug) of 20 different drug molecules.

• What are the current chromium(VI) policies and positions from regulatory agencies? Hardcover 240 pp 2012 ISBN 978-0-470-66482-7 €119.00/£90.00/CAD $215.00/USD $195.00

Greener Fischer-Tropsch Processes for Fuels and Feedstocks


peter m. maitlis, Arno de Klerk

Add this comprehensive and up-to-date overview of these titular processes, with coverage ranging from the basic science to commercial issues, to your shelf. In addition to the chemical and industrial side of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, this monograph deals with process economics as well as such green concepts as sustainability and environmental care. The result is a practical reference for researchers and engineers working on fuel processing or fuel cell technologies in industry, as well as a great introductory book for graduate courses in chemistry and chemical engineering.

First of its kind within a very hot field of topic, Supported Ionic Liquids introduces SILP materials and the fundamentals. This debut book discusses ionic liquids, porous supports, syntheses, and characterization, and features an important case study section highlighting applications within the catalytic production of: • Bulk chemicals

• Fine chemicals • Environmental processes • Biotechnology • Energy production • And gas separation. In addition, each case study features the most significant authors available describing the underlying research. A final section of concluding remarks addresses the perspectives and outlook.
