|Photochemical Purification of Water and Air
Lowest used price: $371.72
List price: $250.00
Author: Thomas Oppenländer
While the treatment of water and exhaust gas using ultraviolet (UV) light offers both ecological and economic advantages, information on photo-initiated advanced oxidation technologies (AOTs) has been dispersed among various journals and proceedings until now. This authoritative and comprehensive handbook is the first to cover both the photochemical fundamentals and practical applications, including a description of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) and process engineering of suitable photoreactors. The author presents various real-world examples, including economic aspects, while many references to current scientific literature facilitate access to current research topics relevant for water and air industries. Throughout, over 140 detailed figures visualize photochemical and photophysical phenomena, and help in interpreting important research results.
From the foreword by James R. Bolton (President of Bolton Photosciences Inc., Executive Director of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA)): "Prof. Oppenl?nder is well qualified to write about the AOPs/AOTs, since he has contributed to this literature in a very significant manner. This book will be of considerable value to graduate students, science and engineering faculty, scientists, process engineers and sales engineers in industry, government regulators and health professionals."

|Thermoluminescence of Solids (Cambridge Solid State Science Series)
Lowest new price: $75.48
Lowest used price: $52.59
List price: $92.00
Author: S. W. S. McKeever
McKeever gives us a comprehensive survey of thermoluminescence, an important, versatile, and widely-used experimental technique. Bringing together previously isolated specialized approaches, he stresses the importance of the solid state aspects of the phenomenon and links these to applications in dating, dosimetry, and geology. The book contains chapters on analysis and special properties, on instrumentation, and on the variety of defect reaction--using the alkali halides and SiO2 as examples--that can take place within a material to yield thermoluminescence. Three chapters concerning applications discuss the features of the solid state reactions to explain some of the properties observed in practice.
|Photochemistry (Oxford Chemistry Primers)
Lowest new price: $19.44
Lowest used price: $14.48
List price: $25.00
Author: Carol E. Wayne
Photochemistry is the study of the interaction of light with matter, and this concise and clearly written book provides a very accessible introduction to the subject. When visible or ultraviolet light is absorbed by a molecule, the result often is its apparently erratic behavior, with chemical properties distinct from those of the unexcited molecule. The primary part of this volume explores the role of light in this metamorphosis, and explains the chemical processes that occur after the absorption of light. The emission of radiation as fluorescence and phosphorescence is explained in depth in a separate chapter. The final two chapters are dedicated to the impact photochemistry has on life, and to the ways Man has made use of this discipline in a variety of applications.
|Accelerated Aging: Photochemical and Thermal Aspects (Research in Conservation Technical Report)
Lowest used price: $79.95
List price: $40.00
Author: Robert L. Feller
Written by a renowned expert in the field, this book presents an overview of the results of research using accelerated aging tests. The emphasis is on the chemical aspects of photochemical stability, but thermally initiated deterioration is also discussed. Although not a "how-to" book, it does introduce the reasoning, limitations, and principles underlying the concept of accelerated aging. An extensive bibliography provides conservators and conservation scientists with an invaluable source for further research and exploration.
|Molecular Bioenergetics: Simulations of Electron, Proton, and Energy Transfer (Acs Symposium Series)
Lowest new price: $38.09
Lowest used price: $8.00
List price: $153.45
All living things rely on the efficient storage, transduction, and use of energy. For example, all free energy used by biological systems originates from solar energy stored by photosynthesis and its effective use relies on its transformation from one form to the other. In this volume, leaders in the fields of computational modeling of electron transfer, proton transfer, proton-couples electron transfer, and energy transduction present new methods for simulating bioenergetic processes and summarize applications to proteins, including the photosynthetic reaction center, bacteriorhodopsin, and cytochrome c.
|Photoreactive Polymers: The Science and Technology of Resists
Lowest new price: $30.01
Lowest used price: $21.79
List price: $150.00
Author: Arnost Reiser
Basic mechanisms and applications of photoresist chemistry in semiconductor device manufacturing, lithography, chemical engineering, and the graphic arts are discussed in this book. It gives a balanced view of the subject as it now stands and at the same time promotes an understanding of the perennial challenge of material science to meet the demands of new technology by the successful design of new materials. The presentation of the text follows the history of the subject, and the generic resist systems are described approximately in the order in which they made their appearance. This approach maintains the logic of technical development where a new material emerges in response to some deficiency in its historic precursor. The chapters dealing with the resists are interspersed with sections on the related background in photophysics, radiation chemistry, and image science. The text will be of benefit to engineers, chemists and materials scientists in the semiconductor, graphic arts, and polymer photography industries, and graduate students in chemical engineering and electronics.
