Fluorine and health : molecular imaging, biomedical materials and pharmaceuticals by Alain Tressaud( )

19 editions published in 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fluorine and Health presents a critical multidisciplinary overview on the contribution of fluorinated compounds to resolve the important global issue of medicinal monitoring and health care. The involved subjects are organized in three thematic parts devoted to Molecular Imaging, Biomedical Materials and Pharmaceuticals. Initially the key-position of partially fluorinated low molecular weight compounds labelled either with the natural 19F-isotope for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or labelled with the radioactive [18F]-isotope for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is highlighted. Both non-invasive methods belong to the most challenging in vivo imaging techniques in oncology, neurology and in cardiology for the diagnosis of diseases having the highest mortality in the industrialized countries. The manifold facets of fluorinated biomaterials range from inorganic ceramics to perfluorinated organic molecules. Liquid perfluorocarbons are suitable for oxygen transport and as potential respiratory gas carriers, while fluorinated polymers are connected to the pathology of blood vessels. Another important issue concerns the application of highly fluorinated liquids in ophthalmology. Moreover, fluorine is an essential trace element in bone mineral, dentine and tooth enamel and is applied for the prophylaxis and treatment of dental caries. The various origins of human exposure to fluoride species is detailed to promote a better understanding of the effect of fluoride species on living organisms. Medicinally relevant fluorinated molecules and their interactions with native proteins are the main focus of the third part. New molecules fluorinated in strategic position are crucial for the development of pharmaceuticals with desired action and optimal pharmacological profile. Among the hundreds of marketed active drug components there are more than 150 fluorinated compounds. The chapters will illustrate how the presence of fluorine atoms alters properties of bioactive compounds at various biochemical steps, and possibly facilitate its emergence as pharmaceuticals. Finally the synthetic potential of a fluorinase, the first C-F bond forming enzyme, is summarized. - New approach of topics involving chemistry, biology and medicinal techniques - Transdisciplinar papers on fluoride products - Importance of fluoride products in health - Updated data on specific topics
Advanced inorganic fluorides : synthesis, characterization, and applications by Tsuyoshi Nakajima( )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book summarizes recent progresses in inorganic fluorine chemistry. Highlights include new aspects of inorganic fluorine chemistry, such as new synthetic methods, structures of new fluorides and oxide fluorides, their physical and chemical properties, fluoride catalysts, surface modifications of inorganic materials by fluorination process, new energy conversion materials and industrial applications. Fluorine has quite unique properties (highest electronegativity; very small polarizability). In fact, fluorine is so reactive that it forms fluorides with all elements except with the lightest noble gases helium, neon and argon. Originally, due to its high reactivity, fluoride chemistry faced many technical difficulties and remained undeveloped for many years. Now, however, a large number of fluorine-containing materials are currently produced for practical uses on an industrial scale and their applications are rapidly extending to many fields. Syntheses and structure analyses of thermodynamically unstable high-oxidation-state fluorides have greatly contributed to inorganic chemistry in this decade. Fluoride catalysts and surface modifications using fluorine are developing a new field of fluorine chemistry and will enable new syntheses of various compounds. The research on inorganic fluorides is now contributing to many chemical energy conversion processes such as lithium batteries. Furthermore, new theoretical approaches to determining the electronic structures of fluorine compounds are also progressing. On the industrial front, the use of inorganic fluorine compounds is constantly increasing, for example, in semi-conductor industry. "Advanced Inorganic Fluorides: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications" focuses on these new features in inorganic fluorine chemistry and its industrial applications. The authors are outstanding experts in their fields, and the contents of the book should prove to be of valuable assistance to all chemists, graduates, students and researchers in the field of fluorine chemistry

Progress in science, progress in society by Alain Tressaud( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses current societal debates around the globe. Written by respected researchers from France, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Portugal and Italy, the chapters are based on presentations given at a conference organized by the European Academy of Sciences, in partnership with the Royal Academy of Belgium and French Academy of Sciences, in Brussels (Belgium) in November 2016. The book approaches science and society from a perspective of progress. Does progress in science ultimately translate into progress in society? How can we ensure that scientific progress becomes both materially and intellectually beneficial for society, including people who are far away from or socially excluded from it? Progress is a common feature of science and of human societies. There is no doubt that one of the driving forces of the material and intellectual progress of mankind has been science and technology. However, these are not the only forces acting on human history, so that the role of science and technology is not always fully recognized and sometimes even rejected. The various chapters of this book cover many aspects of these issues, arriving at valuable new insights

Préparation et caractérisation d'hydroxy-et d'oxyhydroxyfluorures d'aluminium, de fer ou de chrome : corrélation entre la composition / structure, la stabilité thermique et les propriétés acides by Loïc Francke( )

2 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il s'agissait dans ce travail de préparer des composés fluorés de structure de type HTB ou hollandite au sein desquels la présence d'autres anions tels que OH- ou encore O2- viennent se substituer au fluor. Nous avons voulu dans ce travail mieux comprendre par une approche " chimie du solide " les propriétés de morphologie, de stabilité thermique et d'acidité des ces composés. Des études par diffraction neutronique couplées à une analyse par FTIR nous ont permis de mieux appréhender leurs propriété physico-chimiques. Nos résultats ont mis en avant les rôles joués par les cations, les anions et la structure sur les différentes propriétés et notamment l'importance d'un nouveau paramètre, [khi]/r, qui permet d'expliquer à la fois la force des sites acides et la stabilité thermique de ces composés. L'eau de constitution, le taux et la nature des groupements OH' sont des paramètres clefs qui conditionnent la stabilité thermique et les propriétés acido-basiques de ces composés à anions mixtes
Cristallochimie des composés de terres rares à anions mixtes : propriétés d'absorption UV-visible by Damien Pauwels( )

2 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work deals with the synthesis of new rare earth-based mixed anions (O, S, F) compounds and their UV-visible absorption properties. New rare earth oxyfluorosulfides have been prepared. Structural determinations have been undertaken by means of several diffraction techniques (X-ray, neutrons, electrons). Most of these networks are related to the matlockite PbFCl or the a-La2O3 structural type. One of these compositions exhibits an incommensurate modulated structure, deriving from that of La2O2S by a shearing mechanism. The origin of absorption properties of these materials has been analysed from a study combining band structure calculations and valence band XPS experiments. Optical absorption properties of different compounds have been correlated to their structural features

Nouveaux oxydes et oxyfluorures divisés à base de cérium à propriétés anti-UV by Laetitia Sronek( )

2 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work deals with the synthesis and the characterization of Ce1-xCaxO2-x oxides and new Ce1-xCaxO2-x-y/2Fy oxyfluorides. The Ce1-xCaxO2-x oxides are well known for their UV-shielding ability. Then, the original feature of this work is the incorporation of Ca2+ and F- ions into ceria CeO2 leading to interesting optical properties. The strong electronegative character of F- ions contributes to reduce the electronic polarizability of the network and then the refractive index in visible range compared to Ce-Ca based oxides. 19F NMR spectroscopy was used to study the local environment of fluoride ions. The cerium local environment, the final fluorine content and the physico-chemical properties depend also on the tetravalent cations (Zr4+, Sn4+) partially substituted for Ce4+ cations. Finally, the fluorination of ceria is reported.The UV-shielding properties of these compositions are evaluated and correlated to the chemical composition and to structural features
