Chemistry for Sustainable Technologies Excerpt :

Following the success of the first edition, this fully updated and revised book continues to provide an interdisciplinary introduction to sustainability issues in the context of chemistry and chemical technology. Its prime objective is to equip young chemists (and others) to more fully to appreciate, defend and promote the role that chemistry and its practitioners play in moving towards a society better able to control, manage and ameliorate its impact on the ecosphere. To do this, it is necessary to set the ideas, concepts, achievements and challenges of chemistry and its application in the context of its environmental impact, past, present and future, and of the changes needed to bring about a more sustainable yet equitable world. Progress since 2010 is reflected by the inclusion of the latest research and thinking, selected and discussed to put the advances concisely in a much wider setting – historic, scientific, technological, intellectual and societal. The treatment also examines the complexities and additional challenges arising from public and media attitudes to science and technology and associated controversies and from the difficulties in reconciling environmental protection and global development. While the book stresses the central importance of rigour in the collection and treatment of evidence and reason in decision-making, to ensure that it meets the needs of an extensive community of students, it is broad in scope, rather than deep. It is, therefore, appropriate for a wide audience, including all practising scientists and technologists.

The Chemistry of Bio based Polymers Excerpt :

The recent explosion of interdisciplinary research has fragmented the knowledge base surrounding renewable polymers. The Chemistry of Bio-based Polymers 2nd edition brings together, in one volume, the research and work of Professor Johannes Fink, focusing on biopolymers that can be synthesized from renewable polymers. After introducing general aspects of the field, the book’s subsequent chapters examine the chemistry of biodegradable polymeric types sorted by their chemical compounds, including the synthesis of low molecular compounds. Various categories of biopolymers are detailed including vinyl-based polymers, acid and lactone polymers, ester and amide polymers, carbohydrate-related polymers and others. Procedures for the preparation of biopolymers and biodegradable nanocomposites are arranged by chemical methods and in vitro biological methods, with discussion of the issue of “plastics from bacteria.” The factors influencing the degradation and biodegradation of polymers used in food packaging, exposed to various environments, are detailed at length. The book covers the medical applications of bio-based polymers, concentrating on controlled drug delivery, temporary prostheses, and scaffolds for tissue engineering. Professor Fink also addresses renewable resources for fabricating biofuels and argues for localized biorefineries, as biomass feedstocks are more efficiently handled locally.

Chiral Building Blocks in Asymmetric Synthesis Excerpt :

Chiral Building Blocks in Asymmetric Synthesis A comprehensive introduction to the important classes of chiral building blocks Chirality — the asymmetric quality found in certain chemical compounds — plays an essential role in our world: chiral compounds can be found in biology, pharmaceutical compounds, agrochemicals, and fragrances. The stereoselective preparation of these complex molecular constructions constitutes a challenge. To this end, modern asymmetric synthesis utilizes a variety of valuable and efficient reagents employed as chiral auxiliaries, metal complexes and organocatalysts in stereoselective catalysis, and enantiopure reactants termed as chiral building blocks. In Chiral Building Blocks in Asymmetric Synthesis, the achievements in the fields of preparation of and applications of chiral blocks are presented. In doing so, the book comprehensively discusses the important classes of these reactants as the key for the asymmetric synthesis of chiral molecules. As such, it is an indispensable resource about synthetic methods, as well as possible modifications and transformations of important classes of chiral compounds. It also highlights the importance of their use as reactants and auxiliaries in the preparation of more sophisticated molecules or supramolecular systems. In Chiral Building Blocks in Asymmetric Synthesis readers will also find: Organization according to the most important compound classes — e.g. amino acids, BINOL and its derivatives, terpenes, and others — with an emphasis on synthesis and application A focus on the use of chiral building blocks for the preparation of bioactive compounds and supramolecular assemblies Chiral Building Blocks in Asymmetric Synthesis is a useful reference for organic chemists, catalytic chemists, chemists in industry, medicinal chemists, pharmaceutical chemists, and the libraries that support them.
