Designing Dendrimers 

Research on dendrimers has exploded in the last 15 years, moving from the establishment of synthetic methodologies, particularly in the early years up to the end of nineties, towards sophisticated and wide-ranging applications. Dendrimers play an important role in many different areas, spanning from basic…


Microstructure and Properties of Micro- and Nanoscale Materials, Films, and Coatings (NAP 2019): Selected Articles from the International Conference … (NAP 2019) (Springer Proceedings in Physics) 

This book presents the findings of experimental and theoretical (including first-principles molecular dynamics simulation) studies of nanostructured and nanocomposite metal-based materials, and nanoscale multilayer coatings fabricated by physical or chemical vapor deposition, magnetron sputtering, electrospark alloying, ionic layer absorption, contact melting, and high-current electron beam…


The History of Grinding 

An in-depth examination of the oldest engineering process, The History of Grinding begins at the start of agriculture and outlines how size reduction developed over the centuries(without completely immersing the reader in technical detail). Great technical achievements have led to the machines of today, which…


Fundamentals of Aqueous Metallurgy 

This comprehensive technical reference provides an overview of aqueous metallurgy and its applications in mineral processing operations. The text presents the physicochemical principles of various water-based processes, including interfacial phenomena, hydrometallurgy, and metallurgical kinetics. Written as a text for college- and graduate-level instruction, the book…


Molecular Assembly of Biomimetic Systems 

This handy reference details state-of-the-art preparation of molecular assemblies of biotechnologically relevant biomimetic systems (artificial proteins, peptides, molecular motors, photosensitive systems) with an emphasis on biomimetic membranes, capsules, and interfaces. Medical applications such as drug release, gene therapy, and tissue engineering as well as biosensing,…
