The Science of Thai Cuisine Chemical Properties and Sensory Attributes


The Science of Thai Cuisine: Chemical Properties and Sensory Attributes
English | 2023 | ISBN: 1032023287 | 273 Pages | PDF (True) | 14 MB
Lists of the most popular or delicious dishes in the world always include Thai food. Sriracha sauce has gone from a dipping sauce made in a small town in Thailand to become a recognizable flavor in cuisine worldwide. With a reputation of being hot and spicy, it is not uncommon to see those who try Thai food for the first time shedding tears and sporting a red nose. Yet, the Thai national cuisine has gained a high degree of global recognition and admiration despite Thailand being a relatively small country. Is this down to sheer luck, its being an extensive work of art, or, possibly, because of scientific literacy?

Chemical Sensors An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers


Chemical Sensors: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers by Peter Gr√ľndler
English | PDF | 2007 | 274 Pages | ISBN : 3540457429 | 2.9 MB
Research in the area of chemical and biochemical sensors and the development of respective applications is still growing rapidly. In the last decade it has become evident that the successful development of chemical and biochemical sensors resistant to the harsh conditions in the various routine applications calls for a cooperation between chemists and engineers.Thus, this book aims at instructing researcher and practitioners in both disciplines in a strictly systematic, interdisciplinary and practice-oriented way about the basic technology of chemical and biochemical sensors. This concise volume bridges the gap between the different "ways of thinking" in chemistry, physics and engineering. It provides a firm grounding for engineers, industrial and academic researcher in the field, for practitioners and novices as well as for advanced students.

DNA-Encoded Chemical Libraries


DNA-Encoded Chemical Libraries
English | 2022 | ISBN: 1071625446 | 225 Pages | PDF (True) | 9 MB
This volume discusses protocols that cover synthesis, screening by selection, and analysis of DNA-encoded chemical libraries (DEL). Chapters in this book focus on methods used to practice DEL technology and include solution phase library synthesis using a variety of chemistries; DNA encoding of chemical structure; design, preparation and analysis of target proteins and tool compounds; screening of soluble protein targets by affinity selection; DEL qPCR, preparative PCR and DNA sequence analysis; computational methods used to analyze selections and choose compounds for resynthesis; and analysis of hit compounds. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Instrumental Analysis Chemical IT (De Gruyter Textbook)


English | 2022 | ISBN: 3110689642 | 304 pages | True PDF EPUB | 71.06 MB
This book introduces the techniques of Instrumental Analysis with respect to fundamental basics, technical realization, key applications, major strengths and limitations. The approach used is to highlight differences and consolidate similarities of the techniques, focusing especially on the viewpoint of the laboratory rather than on the scientific ideal or the limits of what is possible.

Chemical Shifts and Coupling Constants for Phosphorus-31 Part 2


Chemical Shifts and Coupling Constants for Phosphorus-31: Part 2 By R. R. Gupta, M. D. Lechner, V. Gupta (eds.)
2014 | 2498 Pages | ISBN: 3642416128 | PDF | 20 MB
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is based on the fact that certain nuclei exhibit a magnetic moment, orient by a magnetic field, and absorb characteristic frequencies in the radiofrequency part of the spectrum. The spectral lines of the nuclei are highly influenced by the chemical environment i.e. the structure and interaction of the molecules. NMR is now the leading technique and a powerful tool for the investigation of the structure and interaction of molecules. The present Landolt-Börnstein vol.III/35 "Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Data" is therefore of major interest to all scientists and engineers who intend to use NMR to study the structure and the binding of molecules. Vol. III/40H is divided into three subvolumes, all of them describing NMR-data about 31P.

Basic Principles and Calculations in Chemical Engineering, 9th Edition (Final Release)


English | 2023 | ISBN: 013732717X, 978-0131406346 | 752 pages | True EPUB | 57.57 MB
This book is intended to serve as an introduction to the principles and techniques used in the field of chemical, petroleum, and environmental engineering. Although the range of subjects deemed to be in the province of chemical engineering has broadened over the last decade, the basic principles involved in chemical engineering remain the same. This book lays a foundation of certain information and skills that can be repeatedly employed in subsequent courses as well as in professional life. Much of the previous edition has been rewritten. One new topic (Chapter 20) on adsorption has been added.Reorganization: Although each chapter has been revised, the sequence of the topics and the format remain about the same. The Seventh edition takes individual topics that were previously in one long chapter, and makes them individual short chapters of them so that readers can feel a sense of accomplishment more rapidly and review more definitively.In addition to the revised learning tutorial place

The Chemical Weapons Taboo


The Chemical Weapons Taboo By Richard M. Price
2007 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 0801473942 | PDF | 15 MB
Richard M. Price asks why, among all the ominous technologies of weaponry throughout the history of warfare, chemical weapons carry a special moral stigma. Something more seems to be at work than the predictable resistance people have expressed to any new weaponry, from the crossbow to nuclear bombs. Perceptions of chemical warfare as particularly abhorrent have been successfully institutionalized in international proscriptions and, Price suggests, understanding the sources of this success might shed light on other efforts at arms control.To explore the origins and meaning of the chemical weapons taboo, Price presents a series of case studies from World War I through the Gulf War of 1990-1991. He traces the moral arguments against gas warfare from the Hague Conferences at the turn of the century through negotiations for the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993. From the Italian invasion of Ethiopia to the war between Iran and Iraq, chemical weapons have been condemned as the "poor man’s bomb." Drawing upon insights from Michel Foucault to explain the role of moral norms in an international arena rarely sensitive to such pressures, he focuses on the construction of and mutations in the refusal to condone chemical weapons.
