Silicon, silica and silicones each have important but separate technological roles to play for mankind in this millennium. All three have the element silicon (Si) in common but they have unique and distinctive chemistries, properties and applications. This book describes recent advances in silicones and the advanced materials which are based on the siloxane bond (Si-O). We have seen tremendous developments in silicon-based materials over the past century and yet clearly there is still much potential for new advanced materials based on the siloaxne bond. With the high abundance of silicon and oxygen on Earth, we are probably working with the most sustainable and "green" materials if we adopt the correct materials chemistry, materials processing, materials recovery and materials reuse strategies.

Silicon-Containing Dendritic Polymers (Hardcover, 2009 ed.): Petar Radivoj Dvornic, Michael J. Owen Silicon-Containing Dendritic Polymers (Hardcover, 2009 ed.)

During the last two decades silicon-containing dendritic polymers have become one of the fastest growing areas of development in polymer science. The eruption of interest in these new polymers stems from their unprecedented molecular architecture, unique resulting properties and the realization that they represent ideal building blocks for chemical nanotechnology.

This is the first book to solely focus on silicon-containing dendritic polymers. The contributions of those experts who originally introduced each field or played a major role in its progress are reported. The developments in all major areas of this field are presented from their origins to the present. It is anticipated that this text will become an invaluable guide and vanguard of reference for experienced scientists interested in the fields of polymer and material science, synthetic chemistry, and nanotechnology. It will also serve advanced graduate students either as a source of creative inspiration or as a textbook for appropriate courses.

Genetics promises to provide one of the most powerful approaches to understanding the functional pathology of the human brain. This book presents a critical review of the evidence for a genetic contribution to common psychiatric conditions and the rarer single-gene disorders that may have psychiatric presentations
The first section of the book introduces the reader to molecular biology and the techniques of molecular genetics. The coverage then moves on to consider the genetics of normal and abnormal development, followed by a look at the genetics of abnormal behaviour in adults. This section includes, amongst others, consideration of personality disorders, schizophrenia and the dementias. The final section considers the applications of the work and covers issues such as counselling and ethics, closing with a look to the future.
The editors are internationally renowned figures in this field and they have invited a team of equally eminent chapter authors.
This will be essential reading for psychiatrists and geneticists and will be essential reading for psychiatrists and geneticists and will be of interest to neurologists, psychologists and neuroscientists.

Commercial silicone-based products range from those entirely composed of silicones, to products where silicone is a small, but key component. Silicones are widely used in the polymer industtry as elastomers, pressure sensitive adhesives, in water-borne systems, biomedical products surface and interfacial agents, personal care products, processing aids, electronics encapsulents, and other applications. Silicones and Silicone-Modified Materials examines recent academic and technological developments of this growing industry.
