Brand: E Silva A M Edwards
Flavins and flavoproteins are a widely investigated and highly versatile group of compounds. Participation of these compounds in photochemistry and photobiology processes are of particular importance in the fields of biology, chemistry and medicine. Written by leading experts in the field each section of the book includes a historical overview of the subject, state of the art developments and future perspectives. Flavins: Photochemistry and Photobiology begins with the properties and applications of flavins, including their photochemistry in aqueous and organic solutions. Subsequent sections discuss riboflavin as a visible light sensitizer in the photo degradation of drugs, antiviral and antibacterial effects, the role of flavins in light induced toxicity and blue light initiated DNA repair by photolyase. Finally there are sections on the flavin based photoreceptors in plants, bacteria and eukaryotic photosynthetic flagelettes. This book brings together leading experts with a unique interdisciplinary emphasis, to provide an authoritative resource on flavins and their role in photochemistry and photobiology.

Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis is written by experts in the measurement of radioactivity. The book describes the broad scope of analytical methods available and instructs the reader on how to select the proper technique. It is intended as a practical manual for research which requires the accurate measurement of radioactivity at all levels, from the low levels encountered in the environment to the high levels measured in radioisotope research. This book contains sample preparation procedures, recommendations on steps to follow, necessary calculations, computer controlled analysis, and high sample throughput techniques. Each chapter includes practical techniques for application to nuclear safety, nuclear safeguards, environmental analysis, weapons disarmament, and assays required for research in biomedicine and agriculture.
The fundamentals of radioactivity properties, radionuclide decay, and methods of detection are included to provide the basis for a thorough understanding of the analytical procedures described in the book. Therefore, the Handbook can also be used as a teaching text.
* Includes sample preparation techniques for matrices such as soil, air, plant, water, animal tissue, and surface swipes
* Provides procedures and guidelines for the analysis of commonly encountered natural and man-made environmental radionuclides
* Covers high-sample-throughput microplate techniques and multi-detector scintillation proximity assay methods
* Describes the time-saving techniques of computer protocol-controlled automatic activity analysis
* Discusses absolute activity measurement methods for meeting scientific reporting requirements
* Presents the latest methods of rapid electronic radionuclide imaging
* Written by experts in the measurement of radioactivity
|Applied Modeling and Computations in Nuclear Science (ACS Symposium Series)
Lowest new price: $140.89
Lowest used price: $45.44
List price: $225.00
Brand: Brand: American Chemical Society
This book will broach the topics of applied nuclear science in general, and nuclear chemistry in particular where there is usually a modeling or computational component. Typically one finds several modelers presenting their work in the course of almost every symposium. It's imperative to bring all such theoretical and computational work in applied nuclear science under one umbrella and thats what this book aims to do. The nuclear scientists interested in modeling are lacking a broader forum for their research, as well as a vehicle to enable those learning related techniques. The editors intend to include several topics: radiation risk assessment, radiation transport, contaminant transport, radiation dosimetry, modeling of experiments, detection limits, nuclear data analysis and statistical aspects.

|Hiroshima to Fukushima: Biohazards of Radiation (Science Policy Reports)
Lowest new price: $117.54
Lowest used price: $90.00
List price: $139.99
Author: Eiichiro Ochiai
Set against a backdrop of the recent disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, "Hiroshima to Fukushima" examines the issue of radiation safety. The author provides important and accurate scientific information about the radioactive substances arising from nuclear power plants and weapons, including the effects of this radiation on living organisms. Currently, humankind is at a crossroads and must decide whether to phase out or increase its reliance on nuclear power as weapons and an energy source. Although a few countries, mostly European, have vowed to abolish nuclear power as an energy source, many other countries are about to increase their nuclear power programs. This book is written from a Japanese perspective and thus provides an alternative to views of Western writers. The author includes rigorous scientific analyses, however maintains a broad scope, which allows the book to be accessible to decision-makers and non-specialists.
|Crucibles: The Story of Chemistry from Ancient Alchemy to Nuclear Fission
Lowest new price: $10.99
Lowest used price: $3.02
List price: $17.95
Author: Bernard Jaffe
Brand: Bernard Jaffe
This book is a classic in the field of popular science. Standard reading since the 1930s, it is one of the few historeis of chemistry to concentrate on the lives of the great chemists. Through these dramatic and human stories, it gives an authoritative and entertaining account of the great discoveries and advances in this scientific field. After many printings in three previous editions, this book has been newly revised by the author for this fourth edition.
Beginning with Trevisan and his lifelong search for the "philosopher's stone," the author narrates the lives and discoveries of such towering figures as Paracelsus and his chemical treatment of disease; Priestley looking for phlogiston and finding oxygen and carbon dioxide, Lavoisier creating a new language of chemistry; Dalton and his Atomic Theory; Avogadro and the idea of molecules, Mendeleeff arranging the table of elements under his Periodic Law; the Curies isolating radium; Thomson discovering the electron; Moseley and his Law of Atomic Numbers; Lawrence and the construction of the cyclotron; and more. Probably the most dramatic chapter in the book, the account of the development of nuclear fission, ends the story of chemistry at its most monumental achievement. A final chapter discusses some of the consequences of nuclear fission, the discovery of nuclear fusion, and the recent work with subatomic particles.
Bernard Jaffe is the author of many other science books and several science textbooks. Upon the original publication of this book, Mr. Jaffe received the Francis Bacon Award for the Humanizing of Knowledge. The American Chemical Society's History of Chemistry Division honored him in 1973 with its Dexter Award for "distinguished achievement in the history of chemistry."

|On Beyond Uranium: Journey to the End of the Periodic Table (Science Spectra Series)
Lowest used price: $78.20
List price: $79.95
Author: Sigurd Hofmann
In the early nineteenth century chemists knew of the existence of ninety-two chemical elements, from Hydrogen to Uranium. For nearly forty years scientists thought they knew the content of our planet and all of its contents. In the late 1930s the world of chemical science began to discover elements beyond Uranium - the 'transuranics'. These new, super-heavy elements are probably not found in nature at all but can be detected, if only for a few fractions of a second, in precisely designed experiments using powerful nuclear tools. On Beyond Uranium: Journey to the End of the Periodic Table is full of exciting new concepts and tells the story of the author's quest to discover elements never before known to man.
