The Mechanisms of Reactions at Transition Metal Sites

Author: Richard A. Henderson
Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand
ISBN: 0198557469
Release Date: 1993
Genre: Science

Understanding the mechanisms of the reactions at transition metal sites is a key component in designing synthetic methods, developing industrial homogeneous catalysts, and investigating metalloenzymes. These mechanisms are therefore an essential part of undergraduate chemistry courses. This primer provides a broad-based, systematic guide to the fundamentals of transition-metal mechanistic chemistry, including substitution, electron transfer, and reactions of ligands. It serves as an ideal text for undergraduate students with a foundation in basic inorganic chemistry but who are new to inorganic reaction mechanisms.

Problems in Structural Inorganic Chemistry

Author: Wai-Kee Li
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191633058
Release Date: 2012-10-11
Genre: Science

This book consists of over 300 problems (and their solutions) in structural inorganic chemistry at the senior undergraduate and beginning graduate level. The topics covered comprise Atomic and Molecular Electronic States, Atomic Orbitals, Hybrid Orbitals, Molecular Symmetry, Molecular Geometry and Bonding, Crystal Field Theory, Molecular Orbital Theory, Vibrational Spectroscopy, and Crystal Structure. The central theme running through these topics is symmetry, molecular or crystalline. The problems collected in this volume originate in examination papers and take-home assignments that have been part of the teaching of the book's two senior authors' at The Chinese University of Hong Kong over the past four decades. The authors' courses include Chemical Bonding, Elementary Quantum Chemistry, Advanced Inorganic Chemistry, X-Ray Crystallography, etc. The problems have been tested by generations of students taking these courses.

Inorganic Chemistry in Biology

Author: Patricia C. Wilkins
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: UOM:39015048553377
Release Date: 1997

Providing a good starting survey of the field, this book emphasizes the importance of inorganic chemistry in biological systems. The basic background of the interactions of atoms, molecules and especially metal ions, with biomolecules covers about a quarter of the book. The remainder discusses the biologically important elements, and their occurrence and functions in biomaterials - these are illustrated by certain roles in humans, fishes, beetles, and plants and in varied human diseases,such as cystic fibrosis methemoglobemia, and thalassemia. This upper level undergraduate textbook for students of chemistry and biology is the only current short book covering, briefly, most areas of bioinorganic chemistry.

Two phase flow and heat transfer

Author: P. B. Whalley
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: UOM:39015037779348
Release Date: 1996
Genre: Literary Criticism

This concise and heavily illustrated book is exclusively concerned with gas-liquid two-phase flows. The first part deals with adiabatic flows, that is flows without the addition or removal of heat. Topics include flow pattern maps and homogenous flow. The second part deals with heat-transfer in two-phase flows: boiling and condensation. It is concerned with issues like pressure drop flow, flooding, the drift flux model, and nucleation. The various types of heat transfer are identified and methods to calculate them are provided. Two-phase flow and heat transfer processes are commonly encountered in heat exchanges (distillation and condensation) and in pipelines. The book is intended for readers interested in chemical and mechanical engineering.
