New methodologies and techniques for a sustainable organic chemistry by Alessandro Mordini( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chemical industries have to face the big challenge of finding adequate processes to produce large quantities of new products for which there is a present need, decreasing at the same time both the impact on the environment and the risk of disasters. These issues have led to the establishment of new concepts of sustainable development as affirmed in the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development in the early 90's and has been the subject of intensive studies in the last two decades. The book addresses this challenge collecting the recent "New Methodologies and Techniques for a Sustainable Organic Chemistry". It provides a wealth of information in the fields of - New efficient and selective catalytic processes - Use of non-usual media or environmentally benign reagents - New selective and efficient synthetic methods - New techniques based on alternative energy sources. All these topics are covered in 15 chapters written by world-renowned experts in these fields who were the lecturers of the NATO ASI NeMeTOC (2005, Siena). Since some of the authors have an industrial background, the book helps to answer virtually any questions which may arise during the development of a new environmentally benign organic process

Methods in Paleomagnetism covers the proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Paleomagnetic Methods, held in the Physics Department of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne on April 1-10, 1964. The book focuses on apparatus and techniques used in paleomagnetism and rock magnetism. The selection first offers information on sampling techniques in the field and measurement of natural remanent magnetization. Discussions focus on ballistic and spinner magnetometers; paleomagnetic sampling with a portable coring drill; portable apparatus for collecting small oriented cores; and portable f

Earthquake displacement fields and the rotation of the earth; a NATO Advanced Study Institute. Conference organized by the Department of Geophysics, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada, 22 June-28 June 1969 by L Mansinha( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seeds of this conference were sown with the publication by Press, in 1965, of a paper in which he suggested that the displacement field due to a major earthquake may extend over much greater distances than had been thought possible before. Later on, Mansinha and Smylie pointed out that if Press was correct then, since the redistri bution of significant quantities of mass was involved, the inertia tensor of the earth would be altered and thus cause the earth to wobble; this revived the idea that earth quakes might be the long sought source for maintaining the Chandler Wobble. They argued that since earthquakes are sudden events it should be worthwhile trying to determine if there was any correlation between sudden changes in the Chandler term of the pole path and major earthquakes. Furthermore, since displacements occur both before and after an earthquake it might be possible to obtain a few days warning of a major earthquake by making instantaneous observations of the pole path. Analysis of the data indicated some correlation but, as often happens in science in general and in geophysics in particular, the results were not conclusive because of imperfect theory and the need for more accurate determinations of the pole position. It soon became clear that a meeting between geophysicists and astronomers involved in this type of work would be of mutual benefit
Cell to cell signals in plant, animal, and microbial symbiosis by Silvano Scannerini( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In symbiosis, different organisms have to recognize each other and exchange material and information. While the functional morphology of symbiont cells has extensively been studied little attention has been paid to mutual interactions and cell-to-cell signals. The main topic of the book is the comparison and discussion of the short-distance signals triggering mutualism in animal and plant cells. Thus it provides a) the basis for a better understanding of various aspects of cell compatibility; b) standardisation of a common vocabulary for animal and plant symbiotic biology; c) optimization of experimental techniques for studying signals in symbiosis. The results show the differences and the general principles in the signalling processes of plant, animal and bacterial cells

Forces in scanning probe methods by H.-J Güntherodt( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The invention of scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy and near field optical microscopy has opened up a new field of research: scanning probe methods (SMP). The quality of image acquisition has made great strides in recent times, but many fundamental, unsolved problems remain unanswered about the interaction between probe tip and sample. Forces in Scanning Probe Methods contains 60 contributions dedicated to these problems. Most of the contributions are reviews, presenting condensed, relevant information, suitable for both students and specialists. The contributions cover the instrumental aspects and design of force microscopes in different environments (ambient pressure, low temperature, ultrahigh vacuum, liquids). Theory is also covered, including ab initio calculations and molecular dynamics simulations. Mechanical properties at micro and nanoscales receive intensive treatment, including adhesion, friction and wear: the friction phenomenon is one of the most hotly debated questions. Other highlights include advances in near field optical microscopy and its relation to forces, the application of force microscopy in NMR, and the observance of flux lines in high Tc superconductors. Recent advances in biology and chemistry also attract attention

Forest ecosystems, forest management, and the global carbon cycle by Michael J Apps( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globally, forest vegetation and soils are both major stores of terrestrial organic carbon, and major contributors to the annual cycling of carbon between the atmosphere and the biosphere. Forests are also a renewable resource, vital to the everyday existence of millions of people, since they provide food, shelter, fuel, raw materials and many other benefits. The combined effects of an expanding global population and increasing consumption of resources, however, may be seriously endangering both the extent and future sustainability of the world's forests. About thirty chapters cover four main themes: the role of forests in the global carbon cycle; effects of past, present and future changes in forest land use; the role of forest management, products and biomass on carbon cycling, and socio-economic impacts

Electron transport in nanosystems by Janez Bonc̆a( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics discussed at the NATO ARW included the new nanodevice applications, novel materials, mesoscopic superconductivity and biosensors. There have been many significant advances in the past two years and some entirely new directions of research are just opening up. Recent advances in nanoscience have demonstrated that fundamentally new physical phenomena are found when systems are reduced in size with dimensions, comparable to the fundamental microscopic length scales of the investigated material. Recent developments in nanotechnology and measurement techniques now allow experimental investigation of transport properties of nanodevices. Great interest in this research connected with development of spintronics, molecular electronics and quantum information processing
