Venina dos Santos, Rosmary Nichele Brandalise, Michele Savaris, “Engineering of Biomaterials”

English | EPUB | 2017 | 92 Pages | ISBN : 3319586068 | 3 MB

This book focuses on biomaterials of different forms used for medical implants. The authors introduce the characteristics and properties of biomaterials and then dedicate special chapters to metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite biomaterials.
Case studies on sterilization methods by biomaterials are also presented. Finally, the authors describe the degradation and effects of biomaterials in living tissue.

Have you ever wished you could speed up your organic syntheses without losing control of the reaction? Flash Chemistry is a new concept which offers an integrated scheme for fast, controlled organic synthesis. It brings together the generation of highly reactive species and their reactions in Microsystems to enable highly controlled organic syntheses on a preparative scale in timescales of a few seconds or less.
Flash Chemistry: Fast Organic Synthesis in microsystems is the first book to describe this exciting new technique, with chapters covering:
– an introduction to flash chemistry
– reaction dynamics: how fast is the act of chemical transformation, what is the rate of reaction, and what determines the selectivity of a reaction?
– examples of why flash chemistry is needed: the rapid construction of chemical libraries, rapid synthesis of radioactive PET probes, and on-demand rapid synthesis in industry
– the generation of highly reactive species through thermal, microwave, chemical, photochemical, and electrochemical activation
– microsystems: What are microsystems and how are they made? Why is size so important? What are the characteristic features of microsystems?
– conduction and control of extremely fast reactions using microsystems
– applications of flash chemistry in organic synthesis
– polymer synthesis based on flash chemistry
– industrial applications of flash chemistry
Flash Chemistry: Fast Organic Synthesis in Microsystems is an essential introduction to anyone working in organic synthesis, process chemistry, chemical engineering and physical organic chemistry concerned with fundamental aspects of chemical reactions an d synthesis and the production of organic compounds.

The cocaine that was though to be a harmless recreational drug of the affluent during the 1970s became a scourge in America by the mid-1980s. Cocaine and its derivative Crack, are now a multi-billion dollar illegal international industry that has invaded the streets of America and there is little evidence that it can be stopped.

People have consumed alcoholic drinks for thousands of years Although it is legal to drink, alcohol can be as addictive and dangerous as illegal drugs such as cocaine. Alcohol abuse leads to many social and personal problems, from drunk driving fatalities to destruction of the human body.
