Currently there is no concise teaching text aimed at 2/3rd year undergraduates on organosulfur chemsitry. Organosulfur chemistry is widely taught at this level. After a brief introductory chapter the main part of the book deals with the preparation and chemical properties of the principal types of organosulfur compounds classified under the headings: Divalent sulfur compounds, Tricoordinate sulfur compounds, and Tetracoordinate sulfur compounds. In choosing examples to illustrate the text, the guiding principle has been that the illustrations should provide insight into and an understanding of the characteristic features of organosulfur chemistry. Two concluding chapters deal, on the one hand, with applications of organosulfur compounds in organic synthesis and, on the other, with a brief summary of organoselenium chemistry, highlighting the similarities and differences with respect to organosulfur chemistry.

Sulfur compounds contaminate many industrially important feedstocks and, on release to the atmosphere as sulfur oxides, can cause widespread damage to the ecosystem. The main objectives of The Sulfur Problem: Cleaning Up Industrial Feedstocks are to demonstrate the importance of eliminating sulfur contaminants from the environment and the measures necessary to effect this. Using a systematic and pedagogical approach, the reader is first presented with the problem. Current technology for solving it is then outlined together with appropriate theory on the synthesis, structure and sorption behaviour of the materials used. Relevant characterisation techniques are described with reference to typical sorbents, to demonstrate how the sorption behaviour of the materials correlates with their properties. The book is unique in blending together aspects of environmental chemistry, materials/solid state chemistry, surface chemistry, catalysis and separation processes to address the problem of sulfur contaminants in a wide range of feedstocks.

The carbonyl group is the commonest functional unit of organic chemistry and a thorough understanding of its reactivity is fundamental for organic synthesis. It appears in many classes of compound, of which aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acid derivatives are the most important. This Primer covers the chemistry of these classes within an up-to-date mechanistic framework which embraces reactions with simple nucleophiles (hydration, acetal formation, and condensation with aminonucleophiles); enols and enolates; and their reactions with electrophiles, including alkylating agents and carbonyl groups. Core Carbonyl Chemistry is central to organic chemistry and will be invaluable to students taking chemistry or biochemistry courses at University.

All the basic principles of the field of aromatic chemistry are clearly presented in this important account. Many compounds of industrial and biological significance are used as examples with consideration given to structure, reactions, and properties. Topics such as thermodynamic versus kinetic control and pericyclic reactions are also introduced. In addition to benzene and the classes of aromatic compounds derived from it, the text covers polycyclic arenes, and the small and large ring systems which are embraced by the wider definition of aromaticity. The text will be especially useful for courses in organic chemistry.

Organophosphorus Chemistry: A Practical Approach in Chemistry provides a practical introduction to the field by mixing a brief review of the subject area with key experimental details and sample procedures. Phosphorus is an element that has been central to the development of our modern way of life. Its chemistry plays a key role in the development of such important areas as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, modern materials and molecular biology. Much of this work requires a sound understanding of the organic chemistry of phosphorus and this volume is designed to instruct the reader in the essential methodology used. Topics covered include phosphines, applications of phosphorus (III) and (V) compounds as reagents in synthesis, the chemistry of phosphorus ylides, applications of the Wittig reaction in the synthesis of heterocyclic and carbocyclic compounds, preparation of Iminophosphoranes and their synthetic applications in the aza-Wittig reaction, phospho-transfer processes leading to [P-C] bond formation, low valent phosphorus compounds and phosphorus methods in oligonucleotide chemistry. It is intended not only for the specialist in organophosphorus chemistry, but also for the organic chemist with little experience in the field who wishes to add phophorus-based techniques to his or her ensemble of synthetic methods.

This book describes the coordination chemistry of macrocyclic ligands. Common types of ligands are introduced and strategies for the synthesis of the free ligands and their metal complexes are discussed. It describes the unique thermodynamic and kinetic properties of macrocyclic complexes and presents important applications. The book is suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate students and assumes a knowledge of organic and inorganic chemistry at the second-year undergraduate level.

This concise and heavily illustrated book is exclusively concerned with gas-liquid two-phase flows. The first part deals with adiabatic flows, that is flows without the addition or removal of heat. Topics include flow pattern maps and homogenous flow. The second part deals with heat-transfer in two-phase flows: boiling and condensation. It is concerned with issues like pressure drop flow, flooding, the drift flux model, and nucleation. The various types of heat transfer are identified and methods to calculate them are provided. Two-phase flow and heat transfer processes are commonly encountered in heat exchanges (distillation and condensation) and in pipelines. The book is intended for readers interested in chemical and mechanical engineering.

It has been recognised for many years that power ultrasound has great potential for uses in a wide variety of processes in the chemical and allied industries. Reported applications include cleaning, sterilisation, flotation, drying, degassing, defoaming, soldering, plastic welding, drilling, filtration, homogenisation, emulsification, dissolution, deaggregation of powder, biological cell disruption, extraction, crystallisation and, more recently, as a stimulus for chemical reactions. With the increasing use of power ultrasound in chemistry comes the need for specialist text books covering this emerging discipline. This book is suitable for chemists and chemical engineers at all levels who wish to gain a rapid insight into what is becoming a standard method in the chemical laboratory. It is designed to answer the following questions: What is sonochemistry? Why is it important? What systems are affected by sonochemistry? What are the major applications of this technique? What types of ultrasonic equipment are available? How do the different types of equipment compare? How is the equipment best configured for chemical applications? What parameters can be changed to optimise sonochemical results? What equipment is available for the scale-up of sonochemistry?

This informative text introduces the techniques and areas of application of modern electroanalysis, which has a particularly important role with current environmental concerns, both in the laboratory and in the field. It is a unique self- contained text which starts by describing the basic principles of the necessary electrochemistry and then moves on to electrochemical sensors and their mode of functioning. Potentiometric sensors are described, including many types of selective electrode. Following this, amperometric and voltametric sensors are presented together with the various instrumentation and electrode modification strategies to enhance sensitivity and selectivity. A final chapter shows the range of applications of modern electroanalysis, with particular emphasis on trace species, and indicates future trends. Bibliography is provided to enable the reader to gain a further understanding of the topic through textbooks and specialist research journals. This clear and accessible text will be an invaluable study aid for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of chemistry, biochemistry, chemical technology, industrial chemistry and environmental science. Graduate chemists and biochemists in industry and in analytical laboratories, and students of engineering, pharmacology and related biomedical sciences will also find this book useful.
