FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOCHEMISTRY
FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOCHEMISTRY
S.S. Haque, Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, India,
ISBN 978-1-910889-04-6
325 pages - Hardback - September 2015; £85.00/$130.00

Biochemistry or biological chemistry is the study of biochemical aspects of life. Biochemistry governs all living organisms and living processes. The aim of biochemistry is to describe life's processes at the molecular level that is, applying the principles and methods of chemistry to determine molecular structure from which it is often possible to explain biological function. Biochemical studies lead us to a fundamental understanding of life. Biochemistry has a profound impact on our understanding of medicine, health, nutrition, and the environment. More...


MOLECULAR THEORY OF ADSORPTION IN POROUS SOLIDS
MOLECULAR THEORY OF ADSORPTION IN POROUS SOLIDS
Yu.K. Tovbin, Karpov Institute of Physical Chemistry, Moscow,
ISBN 978-1-907343-82-7
Approx 650 pages - Hardback - May, 2016; £100.00/$150.00

The processes in porous solids form the basis of many traditional and advanced technologies: catalytic, sorption, membrane, electrochemical, chromatographic, purification and separation of liquid and gas mixtures, capillary condensation and desorption, multiphase filtration and spraying, wetting, impregnation and drying of a wide range of disperse systems, both synthesised and natural, including the processes of transfer of matter in different soils, etc.

The monograph is the first step in describing from the same viewpoint the entire range of the problems in calculating equilibrium and dynamic characteristics of the adsorption processes in porous solids on the molecular level. More...


ISOTOPICITY PARADIGM:  ISOTOPIC RANDOMNESS IN THE DIGITAL UNIVERSE
ISOTOPICITY PARADIGM: ISOTOPIC RANDOMNESS IN THE DIGITAL UNIVERSE
Alexander Berezin (Canada)
ISBN-13: 978-1-910889-08-4
250 pages - Hardback - July 31 2015
£65.00/$95.00

The world we live it is made of atoms and most atoms have 2 or more stable isotopes. This book discusses the isotopic diversity of chemical elements under the unifying idea of "isotopicity". That allows to describe in a singular way a broad range of effects of isotopic randomness in physics and chemistry of solid and liquid systems, material science, nano-technology and engineering ("isotopic engineering"), biology, informatics, quantum computing, etc. The book can be equally read by professionals (scientists, academics, students, engineers) as well as by a broad segment of the lay public, it does not have mathematical technicalities and it is highly interdisciplinary in its scope and style.
