There are ingredients, and then there are Ingredients. An ingredient is what we're used to thinking about in the kitchen - things like tomatoes, tofu or thyme. An Ingredient is what those things are made of. There are millions of ingredients, but only eight Ingredients: Waters, Sugars, Carbs, Lipids, Proteins, Minerals, Gases and Heat. Ingredient isn't a book of recipes - instead, it's about learning to see beneath the surface of food, exposing the moving parts that cause every failure and every triumph in every kitchen. You can apply the mindset laid out in Ingredient to any recipe or technique, regardless of your skill level or how you like to cook. Home cooks will feel ready to take on any recipe, and restaurant cooks will feel prepared for anything that comes out of the fire. Beginners will have a lifeline if something goes wrong, and masters will improve dishes they've been cooking for years. Fans of old-school cuisine will understand classic preparations like never before and the innovation-minded will advance the art of cooking even further. Renowned culinary scientist Ali Bouzari illuminates the elemental world of food and unlocks the secrets of ingredients in a lively, engaging and accessible way that dramatically changes the way we look at our food.

From the reviews:
"Professor Bruckner has further refined his already masterful
synthetic organic chemistry classic; the additions are seamless and
the text retains the magnificent clarity, rigour and precision
which were the hallmark of previous editions. The strength of the
book stems from Professor Bruckner s ability to provide lucid
explanations based on a deep understanding of physical organic
chemistry and to limit discussion to very carefully selected
reaction classes illuminated by exquisitely pertinent examples,
often from the recent literature. The panoply of organic synthesis
is analysed and dissected according to fundamental structural,
orbital, kinetic and thermodynamic principles with an effortless
coherence that yields great insight and never over-simplifies. The
perfect source text for advanced Undergraduate and Masters/PhD
students who want to understand, in depth, the art of synthesis
"Bruckner s Organic Mechanisms accurately reflects the way
practicing organic chemists think and speak about organic
reactions. The figures are beautifully drawn and show the way
organic chemists graphically depict reactions. It uses a
combination of basic valence bond pictures with more sophisticated
molecular orbital treatments. It handles mechanisms both from the
"electron pushing perspective" and from a kinetic and energetic
view. The book will be very useful to new US graduate students and
will help bring them to the level of sophistication needed to be
serious researchers in organic chemistry."
"This is an excellent advanced organic chemistry textbook that
provides a key resource for students and teachers alike."
This is the first book to provide a comprehensive overview of the

Time is an important factor in physical and natural sciences. It characterizes the progress of chemical and biochemical processes. Mass spectrometry provides the means to study molecular structures by detecting gas-phase ions with the unique mass-to-charge ratios. Time-resolved mass spectrometry (TRMS) allows one to differentiate between chemical states that can be observed sequentially at different time points. Real-time mass spectrometric monitoring enables recording data continuously with a specified temporal resolution. The TRMS approaches introduced during the past few decades have shown temporal resolutions ranging from hours down to microseconds and beyond. This text covers the key aspects of TRMS. It introduces ion sources, mass analyzers, and interfaces utilized in time-resolved measurements; discusses the influence of data acquisition and treatment; finally, it reviews most prominent applications of TRMS in the studies of reaction kinetics and mechanism, physicochemical phenomena, protein structure dynamics, biocatalysis, and metabolic profiling. It will assist science and engineering students to gain a basic understanding of the TRMS concept, and to recognize its usefulness. In addition, it may benefit scientists who conduct molecular studies in the areas of chemistry, physics and biology.
