This book underscores the essential principles of photocatalysis and provides an update on its scientific foundations, research advances, and current opinions, and interpretations. It consists of an introduction to the concepts that form the backbone of photocatalysis, from the principles of solid-state chemistry and physics to the role of reactive oxidizing species. Having recognised the organic link with chemical kinetics, part of the book describes kinetic concepts as they apply to photocatalysis. The dependence of rate on the reaction conditions and parameters is detailed, the retrospective and prospective aspects of the mechanism of photocatalysis are highlighted, and the adsorption models, photocatalytic rate expressions, and kinetic disguises are examined. This book also discusses the structure, property, and activity relationship of prototypical semiconductor photocatalysts and reviews how to extend their spectral absorption to the visible region to enable the effective use of visible solar spectrum. Lastly, it presents strategies for deriving substantially improved photoactivity from semiconductor materials to support the latest applications and potential trends.

This complete revision of Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants, Volume 1 builds upon Ernest E. Ludwig’s classic text to further enhance its use as a chemical engineering process design manual of methods and proven fundamentals. This new edition includes important supplemental mechanical and related data, nomographs and charts. Also included within are improved techniques and fundamental methodologies, to guide the engineer in designing process equipment and applying chemical processes to properly detailed equipment. All three volumes of Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants serve the practicing engineer by providing organized design procedures, details on the equipment suitable for application selection, and charts in readily usable form. Process engineers, designers, and operators will find more chemical petrochemical plant design data in: Volume 2, Third Edition, which covers distillation and packed towers as well as material on azeotropes and ideal/non-ideal systems. Volume 3, Third Edition, which covers heat transfer, refrigeration systems, compression surge drums, and mechanical drivers. A. Kayode Coker, is Chairman of Chemical & Process Engineering Technology department at Jubail Industrial College in Saudi Arabia. He’s both a chartered scientist and a chartered chemical engineer for more than 15 years. and an author of Fortran Programs for Chemical Process Design, Analysis and Simulation, Gulf Publishing Co., and Modeling of Chemical Kinetics and Reactor Design, Butterworth-Heinemann. Provides improved design manuals for methods and proven fundamentals of process design with related data and charts Covers a complete range of basic day-to-day petrochemical operation topics with new material on significant industry changes since 1995.

Substantially revising and updating the classic reference in the field, this handbook offers a valuable overview and myriad details on current chemical processes, products, and practices. No other source offers as much data on the chemistry, engineering, economics, and infrastructure of the industry. The Handbook serves a spectrum of individuals, from those who are directly involved in the chemical industry to others in related industries and activities. It provides not only the underlying science and technology for important industry sectors, but also broad coverage of critical supporting topics. Industrial processes and products can be much enhanced through observing the tenets and applying the methodologies found in chapters on Green Engineering and Chemistry (specifically, biomass conversion), Practical Catalysis, and Environmental Measurements; as well as expanded treatment of Safety, chemistry plant security, and Emergency Preparedness. Understanding these factors allows them to be part of the total process and helps achieve optimum results in, for example, process development, review, and modification. Important topics in the energy field, namely nuclear, coal, natural gas, and petroleum, are covered in individual chapters. Other new chapters include energy conversion, energy storage, emerging nanoscience and technology. Updated sections include more material on biomass conversion, as well as three chapters covering biotechnology topics, namely, Industrial Biotechnology, Industrial Enzymes, and Industrial Production of Therapeutic Proteins.

Das erfolgreiche und gut eingeführte Werk Biochemie der Ernährung von Gertrud Rehner und Hannelore Daniel liegt nunmehr in der dritten Auflage vor und eignet sich als Lehrbuch für Studenten der Ernährungswissenschaft wie auch als Nachschlagewerk für Ernährungswissenschaftler, Mediziner, Biologen und Chemiker. Bei diesem didaktisch herausragenden Lehrbuch stehen die Zell- und Organfunktionen im Vordergrund. Den Autorinnen gelingt es damit, einen verständlichen Zusammenhang zwischen den biochemischen Fakten und den Prozessen der Ernährungsphysiologie herzustellen. Ergänzt werden die Texte durch anschauliche zweifarbige Abbildungen. Stimmen zu den vorigen Auflagen ”Das mit dem didaktischen Geschick hervorragend aufgebaute und griffig gegliederte, den anspruchsvollen, bis in die molekularen Dimensionen führenden Stoff mit zahlreichen Abbildungen, Tabellen, und Formeln sehr anschaulich vermittelnde Werk verrät Lehrerfahrung und Einfühlungsvermögen. ... Für Studierende der Ernährungswissenschaft sollte das als Lehrbuch beworbene Werk zur Prüfungslektüre erhoben werden.“ Berthold Gaßmann in Ernährungsumschau ”Das lehrerprobte Team im Studiengang Ernährungswissenschaft in Gießen hat die Lücke gefüllt und für Studierende der Ernährungswissenschaften, ernährungsmedizinisch interessierte Medizinstudenten und Diätassistenzberufe aus der riesigen Fülle des Stoffes der Biochemie und Molekularbiologie jene Stoffe ausgewählt, die für ernährungsbiochemische Komplexe wichtig sind.“ Hamburger Ärzteblatt ”Dies ist ein in mehrfacher Hinsicht ungewöhnliches Buch. Zu den wichtigsten Besonderheiten gehört die grundsätzliche didaktische Vorgehensweise. ... Seine besondere Konzeption, die vermittelten Inhalte sowie viele Abbildungen, sehr durchdacht konzipiert, instruktiv und mit eindrucksvoller Einfachheit entworfen, dürften ihm eine zahlreiche Leserschaft sowohl unter Studenten als auch Fachkollegen der Ernährungswissenschaft, Medizin, Biochemie und Biologie sichern.“ H.-J. F. Zunft in Ernährungsforschung ”Treffende und breit angelegte Information über die biochemischen Abläufe der menschlichen Ernährung / Stoffwechsels.“ Prof. Dr. Hubertus Brunn, Universität Gießen
