Chemistry: Books and E-books
A guide to Chemistry resources for researchers, graduates, and undergraduates.
Chemical Health Threats by Raquel Duarte-Davidson (Editor); Tom Gaulton (Editor); Stacey Wyke (Editor); Samuel Collins (Editor)This book covers recent developments in the implementation of a European collaboration for assessing cross-border toxicological threats. It discusses the European guidelines for the risk assessment and management of serious international public health dangers. It covers REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & restriction of Chemicals) directives and the work of the ASHT (Alerting System for Chemical Health Threats) project. It is applicable to regulators, toxicologists, poisons centres, industrialists and COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) specialists.

Understanding Intermolecular Interactions in the Solid State by Deepak Chopra (Editor)Technological and computational advances in the past decade have meant a vast increase in the study of crystalline matter in both organic, inorganic and organometallic molecules. These studies revealed information about the conformation of molecules and their coordination geometry as well as the role of intermolecular interactions in molecular packing especially in the presence of different intermolecular interactions in solids. This resulting knowledge plays a significant role in the design of improved medicinal, mechanical, and electronic properties of single and multi-component solids in their crystalline state. Understanding Intermolecular Interactions in the Solid State explores the different techniques used to investigate the interactions, including hydrogen and halogen bonds, lone pair-pi, and pi-pi interactions, and their role in crystal formation. From experimental to computational approaches, the book covers the latest techniques in crystallography, ranging from high pressure and in situ crystallization to crystal structure prediction and charge density analysis. Thus this book provides a strong introductory platform to those new to this field and an overview for those already working in the area. A useful resource for higher level undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers across crystal engineering, crystallography, physical chemistry, solid-state chemistry, supramolecular chemistry and materials science.

Organic Catalysis for Polymerisation by Andrew Dove (Editor); Haritz Sardon (Editor); Stefan Naumann (Editor)In recent years polymerisation using organocatalysts has become an appealing alternative to more traditional metal-based catalysts. Conferring numerous advantages including low cost and ease of use, as well as the ability to precisely control the synthesis of advanced polymer structures, organocatalysts are increasingly used in polymer synthesis. Organic Catalysis for Polymerisationprovides a holistic overview of the field, covering all process in the polymer synthesis pathway that are catalysed by organic catalysts. Sub-divided into two key sections for ease of use, the first focuses on recent developments in catalysis and the applications of catalysts to the full range of polymerisations that they have been utilised in; the second concerning monomers, arranges the field by monomer type and polymerisation mechanism. The book will therefore, provide a complimentary view of the field, providing both an overview of state-of-the-art catalyst development and also the best methodologies available to create specific polymer types. Edited by leading figures in the field and featuring contributions from researchers across the globe, this title will serve as an excellent reference for postgraduate students and researchers in both academia and industry interested in polymer chemistry, organic chemistry, catalysis and materials science.
