The octanol-water partition coefficient is a laboratory-measured property of a substance. It provides a thermodynamic measure of the tendency of the substance to prefer a non-aqueous or oily milieu rather than water (i.e. its hydrophilic/lipophilic balance). Partition coefficients are used extensively in medicinal chemistry, drug design, ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry. The partition coefficient is recognized by governmental and international agencies (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, OECD) as a physical property of organic pollutants equal in importance to vapour pressure, water solubility and toxicity. Octanol-Water Partition Coefficients is a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the thermodynamics of partitioning and of the octanol-water pair. In addition, all current methods of measurement are reviewed, strengths and weaknesses are noted and recommendations for particular applications are given. Current methods of calculation of partition coefficients are similarly surveyed and described. Five of the most popular computerized methods are tested for predictive accuracy for drugs, pollutants, aminoacids, etc. The book will be of interest not only to solution chemists, but to any chemists who use partition coefficients. It provides a thorough understanding of the fundamentals and offers clear guidance on the choice of methods of measurement and calculation. Contents: Introduction, Thermodynamics and Extrathermodynamics of Partitioning, Experimental Methods of Measurement, Discussion of Measurement Methods, Methods of Calculating Partitioning Coefficients, Discussion of LogKow Predictive Methods The Wiley Series in Solution Chemistry fills the increasing need to present authoritative, comprehensive and fully up-to-date accounts of the many aspects of solution chemistry. Internationally recognized experts from research or teaching institutions in various countries are invited to contribute to the series.

An Attempt Has Been Made In This Book To Examine The Writings Of The Oxbridge Scholars Who Have Based Their Studies On Different Assumptions And Have Tried To Cover Various Issues Related To The Partition Of India. The Author Has Made A Serious Effort To Trace The Course Of The British Historiography Of India S Partition. In The Light Of New Research And Facts, Several Age-Old, Deliberate But Fallacious Assumptions And Constructs Have Been Deconstructed. In The Process Of This Analysis Several Gaps Have Been Detected And The Underlying Aims Of The Imperialist Efforts Have Been Exposed. On The Top Of It, Various Sophisticated Versions Of The Theories Of Civilizing Mission And Whiteman S Burden In The Post-Colonial Context Have Been Challenged On Several Counts. In Spite Of Several Changes In The Imperialist Writings, It Has Been Found That Even The Neo-Imperial Historians Have Been Extending Their Support To The Several Myths, Deliberately Created By The Orthodox Imperial Ideologues About India S Past And Present. The Only Difference Is That The Former Have Been More Delicate And Sophisticated In Their Presentations. Thus, This Book Opens Up New Areas For Further Research And Will Generate More Curiosity Among The Students Of Indian, Pakistani And British History And Those Who Are Concerned With The Problems Of Nationalism And Decolonisation.

The Spoils of Partition

Bengal and India, 1947–1967

The partition of India in 1947 was a seminal event of the twentieth century. Much has been written about the Punjab and the creation of West Pakistan; by contrast, little is known about the partition of Bengal. This remarkable book by an acknowledged expert on the subject assesses the social, economic and political consequences of partition. Using compelling sources, the book, which was originally published in 2007, shows how and why the borders were redrawn, how the creation of new nation states led to unprecedented upheavals, massive shifts in population and wholly unexpected transformations of the political landscape in both Bengal and India. The book also reveals how the spoils of partition, which the Congress in Bengal had expected from the new boundaries, were squandered over the twenty years which followed. This is an intriguing and challenging work whose findings change our understanding and its consequences for the history of the subcontinent.

Dit boek is een literaire studie naar Zuid-Aziatische Engelstalige fictie vanaf midden jaren vijftig tot de late jaren tachtig over de afscheiding van Pakistan en Bangladesh van India, oftewel de Partitie. Het is een fascinerend verhaal over het ontstaan van een nieuw literair genre. Romanschrijvers van verschillende generaties geven hun kijk op dit beslissende moment in de Zuid-Aziatische geschiedenis. In het begin beschreven zij de catastrofe, later werd er meer getheoretiseerd. Aan de hand van zes romans, van onder andere Salman Rushdie, laat Roy zien welke factoren bepalend zijn geweest voor de grote thema's en verhaallijnen in deze romans.

Given the presence of a wide variety of contaminants in theenvironment, it is important to understand what drives acontaminant from one medium to another, as well as the manner andextent to which a contaminant associates with the different mediaor phases within a local environmental system. Partition andAdsorption of Organic Contaminants in Environmental Systemsforms a comprehensive resource on the behavioral characteristics ofcontaminants so that appropriate strategies can be adopted toeither prevent or minimize their adverse impacts on human welfareand natural resources. Cary Chiou’s far-reaching text depicts the processes bywhich nonionic organic contaminants are sorbed to natural bioticand abiotic substances. This book focuses on physical principlesand system parameters that affect the contaminant uptake by soilfrom water, air, and other media; by fish from water; and by plantsfrom soil and water. As contaminant uptake by natural organicsubstances is often predominantly a partition interaction, thepartition characteristics in several solvent-water model mixturesare treated in detail to elucidate the relevant physicochemicalparameters. The account of contaminant sorption to soils, fish, andplants is strengthened by companion chapters on: Fundamentals of solution theory Interphase partition equations Fundamentals of adsorption theory Vapor adsorption on mineral and carbonaceous solids No other single source in the field delivers as compelling acombination of background understanding and "state-of-the-science"comprehension of current issues. Ideally suited for agraduate-level environmental course, Partition and Adsorptionof Organic Contaminants in Environmental Systems alsoserves as a technical guide to current and future research in thefield.

The Jewish Agency's Partition Plan in the Mandate Era

In 1937 the Royal Commission headed by Lord Peel proposed solving the Arab-Jewish conflict by partitioning Palestine into two nation-states. The concept of partition in exchange for a state was acceptable to the Jewish Agency Executive, but not the details set out by the Royal Commission. Thus in 1937-38 the Agency formulated an alternative plan for consideration by the British authorities. At the core of the proposal was the issue of borders. However, the Agency's suggestions and preparations for a Jewish state addressed additional elements, including the question of Jerusalem; population transfer; the status of the Arab minority in the future Jewish state; and plans covering foreign policy, immigration and development, religion and state, finance and security. In this work Yossi Katz shows that the Jewish Agency Executive plans - though never implemented - was not an isolated episode, but had short- and long-term implications from the Jewish perspective.

Decision Crossroads in the Zionist Movement

Some seventy-five years after the boundaries of the British Mandate for Palestine were set, the State of Israel still lacks a defined territory and agreed-upon boundaries, except for its boundary with Egypt. This book examines this unusual situation, concentrating especially on the perceptions of territory and boundaries within the Zionist movement. Galnoor discusses the period from the first territorial decision in 1919 up to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, placing special emphasis on the relatively unknown Zionist, Palestinian, and Arab positions regarding territorial partition in 1937. And he argues that although dramatic changes have occurred in the international and regional arena, the partners to the conflict, the security considerations, and the international dilemmas, the 1937 decision contained the parameters of the choices that have confronted Arab and Israeli leaders ever since. His findings are of direct relevance to the ongoing Arab-Israeli peace negotiations, which once again revolve around the trade-off between national goals and territorial aspirations.
