Natural Gas Engineering Handbook

This book is written primarily for natural gas production and processing engineers and college students of senior level. It is not the authors' intention to simply duplicate general information that can be found in other books. This book also gathers the authors' experiences gained through years of teaching the course of natural gas engineering at universities. The mission of the book is to provide engineers a handy guideline to designing, analyzing, and optimizing natural gas production and processing systems. This book can also be used as a reference for college students of undergraduate and graduate levels in petroleum engineering.

Nanocatalysis, a subdiscipline of nanoscience, seeks to control chemical reactions by changing the size, dimensionality, chemical composition, and morphology of the reaction center and by changing the kinetics using nanopatterning of the reaction center. This book offers a detailed pedagogical and methodological overview of the field. Readers discover many examples of current research, helping them explore new and emerging applications.

A Prehistory of Polymer Science

Polymer science is now an active and thriving community of scientists, engineers and technologists, but there was a time, not so long ago, when there was no such community. The prehistory of polymer science helps to provide key insights into current issues and historical problems. The story will be divided into an ancient period ( from Greek times to the creation of the molecular consensus), a nascent period (from Dalton to Kekule to vant Hoff) and a period of paradigm formation and controversy (from Staudinger to Mark to Carothers). The prehistory concludes with an account of the epochal 1935 Discussion of the Faraday Society on Polymerization. After this meeting an active community engaged in trying to solve the central problems defined by the discussions.

Handbook of High performance liquid chromatography, Second Edition

Chromatography(fromGreek???achroma"color" and ???fe??graphein"to write") is the collective term for a set oflaboratory techniquesfor theseparation of mixtures. It involves passing a mixture dissolved in a "mobile phase" through astationary phase, which separates theanalyteto be measured from other molecules in the mixture based on differential partitioning between the mobile and stationary phases. Subtle differences in a compound'spartition coefficientresult in differential retention on the stationary phase and thuschangingthe separation.Chromatography may be preparative or analytical. The purpose of preparative chromatography is to separate the components of a mixture for further use (and is thus a form of purification). Analytical chromatography is done normally with smaller amounts of material and is for measuring the relative proportions of analytes in a mixture. The two are not mutually exclusive.

This book is the result of an International conference gathering the most recents results in this field. The studies on Biohydrogels have had a rapid, exponential evolution in the last decades. Starting from one of the first applications of hydrogels in surgery, polyvinylalcohol crosslinked with formaldehyde under the trade name of Ivalon, we passed through PolyHema hydrogels as contact lens materials, hydrophilic polyurethanes (HPU), biodegradable hydrogels for both reconstructive surgery and pharmaceutical delivery systems, and finally more recently, one decade old, the thermoreversible and transient network hydrogels. Of course all these classes of hydrogels have been always and continuously studied, improving their performance and field of applications. Recently, most of them have been used as scaffolds for cells, even stem ones, for regenerative applications (tissue engineering). Nevertheless hydrogels are odd materials and many studies still have to be carried out to fully understand their behaviour from mechanical, physicochemical and biological point of view.
