Die Makromolekulare Chemie (Polymerchemie) beschaftigt sich mit der Synthese, Isolierung, Charakterisierung und Modifizierung von gro?en Molekulen (Polymere). Diese Molekule konnen aus bis zu Hunderttausenden gleicher oder unterschiedlicher Bausteine (Monomere) bestehen und sind meistens als Ketten oder Netzwerke angeordnet. Neben den Biopolymeren (z.B. Zellulose, Enzyme, DNS) sind vor allem die synthetischen Polymere Polyethylen, Polypropylen, PVC, Polystyrol (Styropor), Nylon oder Teflon von gro?em Interesse. Die dritte Auflage der «Makromolekularen Chemie» wurde komplett uberarbeitet und aktualisiert, wobei das bewahrte Konzept, die Synthese, Charakterisierung, Eigenschaften und Reaktionen von Polymeren klar und anschaulich darzustellen, beibehalten wurde. Es gibt neue Kapitel zu aktuellen Trends in der Polymerchemie, z.B. Polymerblends, Polymere durch palladiumkatalysierte Kreuzkupplung, enzymatische Polymerisation, Polymere fur die Optoelektronik, ferroelektrische Polymere und MALDI-TOF-Massenspektrometrie zur Charakterisierung von Polymeren. Au?erdem wurde jedes Kapitel um eine kurze Zusammenfassung der wichtigsten Inhalte erweitert. Das Buch ist unentbehrlich fur Studenten der Chemie und Materialwissenschaften im Bachelor- und Masterstudiengang, die die entsprechende Vorlesung nachbereiten bzw. sich auf die Prufung vorbereiten wollen, aber auch fur (Polymer-)Chemiker, die sich schnell und erfolgreich in das Gebiet einarbeiten wollen.

Environmental awareness in Germany is closely linked to washing powder. The mountains of foam in many rivers during the hot summer of 1958 showed how Western lifestyles were incompatible with the environment: the surfactants in washing powder were biologically upgradeable or, at best, hardly degradable. This played a large role in creating environmental consciousness and in strengthening research into washing powders. Here the author disseminates the chemical, biological and physical knowledge behind modern washing processes to all interested parties; schools, students, and lab workers; to all who need, use and – above all – pass on this knowledge: teachers, trainers, lecturers, consultants, professional associations, consumer agencies, societies, government agencies and other private or state-run institutions will appreciate this detailed, yet readily comprehensible source.

Proteins Biochemistry and Biotechnology 2e is a definitive source of information for all those interested in protein science, and particularly the commercial production and isolation of specific proteins, and their subsequent utilization for applied purposes in industry and medicine. Fully updated throughout with new or fundamentally revised sections on proteomics as, bioinformatics, protein glycosylation and engineering, well as sections detailing advances in upstream processing and newer protein applications such as enzyme-based biofuel production this new edition has an increased focus on biochemistry to ensure the balance between biochemisty and biotechnology, enhanced with numerous case studies. This second edition is an invaluable text for undergraduates of biochemistry and biotechnology but will also be relevant to students of microbiology, molecular biology, bioinformatics and any branch of the biomedical sciences who require a broad overview of the various medical, diagnostic and industrial uses of proteins. • Provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of protein biochemisty and protein biotechnology • Includes numerous case studies • Increased focus on protein biochemistry to ensure balance between biochemisty and biotechnology • Includes new section focusing on proteomics as well as sections detailing protein function and enzyme-based biofuel production "With the potential of a standard reference source on the topic, any molecular biotechnologist will profit greatly from having this excellent book. « (Engineering in Life Sciences, 2004; Vol 5; No. 5) “Few texts would be considered competitors, and none compare favorably.» (Biochemistry and Molecular Education, July/August 2002) «…The book is well written, making it informative and easy to read…» (The Biochemist, June 2002)

This book is aimed at students taking courses on evolution in universities and colleges. Its approach and its structure are very different from previously-published evolution texts. The core theme in this book is how evolution works by changing the course of embryonic and post-embryonic development. In other words, it is an evolution text that has been very much influenced by the new approach of evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo'. Key themes include the following: developmental repatterning; adaptation and coadaptation; gene co-option; developmental plasticity; the origins of evolutionary novelties and body plans; and evolutionary changes in the complexity of organisms. As can be seen from this list, the book includes information across the levels of the gene, the organism, and the population. It also includes the issue of mapping developmental changes onto evolutionary trees. The examples used to illustrate particular points range widely, including animals, plants and fossils. «I have really enjoyed reading this book. One of the strengths of the book is the almost conversational style. I found the style easy to read, but also feel that it will be invaluable in teaching. One of our tasks in university level teaching is to develop students' critical thinking skills. We need to support them in their intellectual development from a „just the facts“ approach to being able to make critical judgements based on available evidence. The openness and honesty with which Arthur speaks to uncertainty in science is refreshing and will be a baseline for discussions with students.» -Professor Patricia Moore, Exeter University «This book, written as an undergraduate text, is a really most impressive book. Given the burgeoning interest in the role of developmental change in evolution in recent times, this will be a very timely publication. The book is well structured and, like the author's other books, very well written. He communicates with a clear, lucid style and has the ability to explain even the more difficult concepts in an accessible manner.» –Professor Kenneth McNamara, University of Cambridge The companion site can be found at www.wiley.com/go/arthur/evolution.

Putting Information First focuses on Luciano Floridi’s contributions to the philosophy of information. Respected scholars stimulate the debate on the most distinctive and controversial views he defended, and present the philosophy of information as a specific way of doing philosophy. Contains eight essays by leading scholars, a reply by Luciano Floridi, and an epilogue by Terrell W. Bynum Explains the importance of philosophy of information as a specific way of doing philosophy Focuses directly on the work of Luciano Floridi in the area of philosophy of information, but also connects to contemporary concerns in philosophy more generally Illustrates several debates that arise from core themes in the philosophy of information

An Introduction to LTE explains the technology used by 3GPP Long Term Evolution. The book covers the whole of LTE, both the techniques used for radio communication between the base station and the mobile phone, and the techniques used for signalling communication and data transport in the evolved packet core. It avoids unnecessary detail, focussing instead on conveying a sound understanding of the entire system. The book is aimed at mobile telecommunication professionals, who want to understand what LTE is and how it works. It is invaluable for engineers who are working on LTE, notably those who are transferring from other technologies such as UMTS and cdma2000, those who are experts in one part of LTE but who want to understand the system as a whole, and those who are new to mobile telecommunications altogether. It is also relevant to those working in non technical roles, such as project managers, marketing executives and intellectual property consultants. On completing the book, the reader will have a clear understanding of LTE, and will be able to tackle the more specialised books and the 3GPP specifications with confidence. Key features – Covers the latest developments in release 10 of the 3GPP specifications, including the new capabilities of LTE-Advanced Includes references to individual sections of the 3GPP specifications, to help readers understand the principles of each topic before going to the specifications for more detailed information Requires no previous knowledge of mobile telecommunications, or of the mathematical techniques that LTE uses for radio transmission and reception
