Download Science of fullerenes and carbon nanotubes by M. S. Dresselhaus PDF

By M. S. Dresselhaus

The invention of fullerenes (also referred to as buckyballs) has generated great pleasure and unfolded a brand new box of carbon chemistry. because the first e-book to be had in this subject, this quantity might be a landmark reference within the box. simply because buckyballs are primarily closed hole cages made from carbon atoms, they are often manipulated in quite a few how one can yield never-before-seen fabrics. The balls can, for example, be doped with atoms or pulled out into tubules and full of bring about supply houses of high-temperature superconductivity. Researchers can now create their very own buckyballs in a approach that's virtually so simple as making soot, making this examine as low-cost because it is unique (which has no doubt contributed to its popularity). Researchers expect that fullerenes will provide boundless possibilities within the improvement of recent items, medicines and fabrics. technological know-how of Fullerenes and Carbon Nanotubes introduces fabrics scientists, chemists, and strong kingdom physicists to the sphere of fullerenes, and discusses the original homes and functions. either present and destiny, of all periods of fullerenes. Key positive factors * First complete source on fullerenes and their purposes * presents an advent to the subject * offers an intensive dialogue of present and destiny purposes of Fullerenes * Covers all periods of fullerenes

Download The Alkali Metal Ions: Their Role for Life by Astrid Sigel, Helmut Sigel, Roland K. O. Sigel PDF

By Astrid Sigel, Helmut Sigel, Roland K. O. Sigel

MILS-16 offers an up to date evaluation of the impression of alkali steel ions on existence. Their bioinorganic chemistry and analytical decision, the forged country buildings of bio-ligand complexes and the houses of alkali steel ions in answer within the context of every kind of biologically suitable ligands are lined, this comprises proteins (enzymes) and nucleic acids (G-quadruplexes). Minerals containing sodium (Na+) and potassium (K+) are ample within the Earth's crust, making Na+ and K+ simply on hand. against this, the alkali parts lithium (Li+), rubidium, and cesium are infrequent and the radioactive francium happens basically in lines. because the intra- and extracellular, in addition to the compartmental concentrations of Na+ and K+ range considerably, homeostasis and lively delivery of those ions are vital; this comprises transporters/carriers and pore-forming ion channel proteins. platforms like Na+/K+-ATPases, H+/K+-ATPases or Na+/H+ antiporters are completely mentioned. The position of K+ in photosynthesis and the function of Na+ in charging the "battery of existence" are mentioned. additionally, the relationships among alkali steel ions and illnesses (e.g., Parkinson or aggravating mind harm) are lined and the relevance of Li+ salts in medication (pharmacology and mechanism) is reviewed. This and extra is handled in an authoritative and well timed demeanour within the sixteen stimulating chapters of quantity sixteen, The Alkali steel Ions: Their function for Life, that are written via forty four across the world famous specialists from 12 international locations. The influence of this brilliant examine sector is manifested in approximately 3000 references, over 30 tables and greater than a hundred and fifty illustrations (two thirds in color). MILS-16 additionally offers first-class details for teaching.

Astrid Sigel, Helmut Sigel, and Roland ok. O. Sigel have long-standing pursuits in Biological Inorganic Chemistry. Their examine makes a speciality of steel ion interactions with nucleotides and nucleic acids and on comparable issues. They edited formerly forty four volumes within the sequence Metal Ions in organic Systems.
