There are few fields of science that carbon-14 has not touched. A radioactive isotope of carbon, it stands out for its unusually long half-life. Best known for its application to estimating the age of artifacts-carbon dating-carbon-14 helped reveal new chronologies of human civilization and geological time. Everything containing carbon, the basis of all life, could be placed in time according to the clock of radioactive decay, with research applications ranging from archeology to oceanography to climatology. In Hot Carbon, John F. Marra tells the untold story of this scientific revolution. He weaves together the workings of the many disciplines that employ carbon-14 with gripping tales of the individuals who pioneered its possibilities. He describes the concrete applications of carbon-14 to the study of all the stuff of life on earth, from climate science's understanding of change over time to his own work on oceanic photosynthesis with microscopic phytoplankton. Marra's engaging narrative encompasses nuclear testing, the peopling of the Americas, elephant poaching, and the flax plants used for the linen in the Shroud of Turin. Combining colorful narrative prose with accessible explanations of fundamental science, Hot Carbon is a thought-provoking exploration of how the power of carbon-14 informs our relationship to the past.

Made to Measure - New Materials for the 21st Century (Paperback, New Ed): Philip Ball Made to Measure - New Materials for the 21st Century (Paperback, New Ed)
Philip Ball
R995 R781 Discovery Miles 7 810 Save R214 (22%) Ships in 12 - 17 work days

"Made to Measure" introduces a general audience to one of today's most exciting areas of scientific research: materials science. Philip Ball describes how scientists are currently inventing thousands of new materials, ranging from synthetic skin, blood, and bone to substances that repair themselves and adapt to their environment, that swell and flex like muscles, that repel any ink or paint, and that capture and store the energy of the Sun. He shows how all this is being accomplished precisely because, for the first time in history, materials are being "made to measure": designed for particular applications, rather than discovered in nature or by haphazard experimentation. Now scientists literally put new materials together on the drawing board in the same way that a blueprint is specified for a house or an electronic circuit. But the designers are working not with skylights and alcoves, not with transistors and capacitors, but with molecules and atoms.

This book is written in the same engaging manner as Ball's popular book on chemistry, "Designing the Molecular World," and it links insights from chemistry, biology, and physics with those from engineering as it outlines the various areas in which new materials will transform our lives in the twenty-first century. The chapters provide vignettes from a broad range of selected areas of materials science and can be read as separate essays. The subjects include photonic materials, materials for information storage, smart materials, biomaterials, biomedical materials, materials for clean energy, porous materials, diamond and hard materials, new polymers, and surfaces and interfaces.

Olga Voskresenskaya
R3,257 Discovery Miles 32 570 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

An approach to the investigation of the thermodynamic and kinetic stability of variable-valence metal complexes has been developed. Concepts of the generalised inverse problems of quantitative instrumental analysis and the complex formation equilibria are introduced. The procedure for this investigation is regarded as a sequential procedure for solving these two inverse problems. The classical methods for investigating the complex formations in solution are analysed in terms of these in-verse problems. Their generalisations are given to determine together with the formation constants also redox-decomposition rate constants of variable-valence metal complexes and the rate law of numerous redox processes, for which the rate-determining step is the decay of an intermediate complex, are presented. Classification is discussed and their implementation on the examples of the study of the complexation and in-tramolecular redox decomposition of cerium(IV) hydroxo complexes with some dicarboxylic, oxycarboxylic acids and aliphatic polyatomic alcohols in dependence on acidity (pH 0.73.4) of a sulphate medium at the ionic strength I=2 and temperatures of 10.043.0 C by UV-Vis spectroscopy and pH measurements. The region of existence, composition, ligand speciation, stability constants of the complexes [CeOH(H-xR)n]3-nx, rate constants, and activation energies of the intramolecular redox decomposition were determined for these complexes on the sulphate background. The rate law of the redox process occurring in the studied systems on the basis of the calculated constants and set of all the chemical and algebraic equations describing the equilibria in systems is derived, and the quantitative model of this process is created. The existence of positive correlation between thermodynamic and kinetic stability of the complexes [CeOHH-xR]3-x with x > 2 and its absence for x > 2 was found on the sulphate background. Discussed also are the computational aspects of solving the regarded generalised problems. This book is well-suited for researchers in the chemistry of co-ordination compounds, physical chemistry, and biochemistry, as well as faculty and advanced students.

R2,836 Discovery Miles 28 360 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

The important resource that explores the twelve design principles of sustainable environmental engineering Sustainable Environmental Engineering (SEE) is to research, design, and build Environmental Engineering Infrastructure System (EEIS) in harmony with nature using life cycle cost analysis and benefit analysis and life cycle assessment and to protect human health and environments at minimal cost. The foundations of the SEE are the twelve design principles (TDPs) with three specific rules for each principle. The TDPs attempt to transform how environmental engineering could be taught by prioritizing six design hierarchies through six different dimensions. Six design hierarchies are prevention, recovery, separation, treatment, remediation, and optimization. Six dimensions are integrated system, material economy, reliability on spatial scale, resiliency on temporal scale, and cost effectiveness. In addition, the authors, two experts in the field, introduce major computer packages that are useful to solve real environmental engineering design problems. The text presents how specific environmental engineering issues could be identified and prioritized under climate change through quantification of air, water, and soil quality indexes. For water pollution control, eight innovative technologies which are critical in the paradigm shift from the conventional environmental engineering design to water resource recovery facility (WRRF) are examined in detail. These new processes include UV disinfection, membrane separation technologies, Anammox, membrane biological reactor, struvite precipitation, Fenton process, photocatalytic oxidation of organic pollutants, as well as green infrastructure. Computer tools are provided to facilitate life cycle cost and benefit analysis of WRRF. This important resource: - Includes statistical analysis of engineering design parameters using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) - Presents Monte Carlos simulation using Crystal ball to quantify uncertainty and sensitivity of design parameters - Contains design methods of new energy, materials, processes, products, and system to achieve energy positive WRRF that are illustrated with Matlab - Provides information on life cycle costs in terms of capital and operation for different processes using MatLab Written for senior or graduates in environmental or chemical engineering, Sustainable Environmental Engineering defines and illustrates the TDPs of SEE. Undergraduate, graduate, and engineers should find the computer codes are useful in their EEIS design. The exercise at the end of each chapter encourages students to identify EEI engineering problems in their own city and find creative solutions by applying the TDPs.

Innovations of agri-food systems during the last 50 years have been guided by a globalized agro-industrial paradigm, which has contributed to climate change, degradation of natural resources, soil depletion, social inequalities, loss of biodiversity and various food-related health problems. Despite the increasing emphasis of food policies and research to address these issues with ecologically sustainable innovations, there are still no studies that explain how to utilize and integrate ecodesign practices in food products development in a world of finite resources. This book explains how to employ ecodesign in business models to address the economic, social, environmental, and nutritional problems that face the worlds food systems. The lessons of the ?coTroph?lia project ? a unique program implemented by a group of European agricultural higher education institutions to involve students in designing and developing food ecoinnovation projects ? are explored. Through an analysis of these projects, the authors describe the tools, methods and standards that were developed to institute ecodesign into the business models of 11 ecologically-friendly food products. This book provides operational good practices that can be implemented in educational programs and agri-food industries, to orient learning and practices towards greater sustainability.

R261 R217 Discovery Miles 2 170 Save R44 (17%) Ships in 10 - 20 work days

Seventy years ago, Erwin Schroedinger posed a profound question: 'What is life, and how did it emerge from non-life?' This problem has puzzled biologists and physical scientists ever since. Living things are hugely complex and have unique properties, such as self-maintenance and apparently purposeful behaviour which we do not see in inert matter. So how does chemistry give rise to biology? What could have led the first replicating molecules up such a path? Now, developments in the emerging field of 'systems chemistry' are unlocking the problem. Addy Pross shows how the different kind of stability that operates among replicating molecules results in a tendency for chemical systems to become more complex and acquire the properties of life. Strikingly, he demonstrates that Darwinian evolution is the biological expression of a deeper, well-defined chemical concept: the whole story from replicating molecules to complex life is one continuous process governed by an underlying physical principle. The gulf between biology and the physical sciences is finally becoming bridged. This new edition includes an Epilogue describing developments in the concepts of fundamental forms of stability discussed in the book, and their profound implications. Oxford Landmark Science books are 'must-read' classics of modern science writing which have crystallized big ideas, and shaped the way we think.
