“I cannot recommend this fascinating book highlyenough.” –Simon Cotton, Chemistry & Industry,September 2014 “In conclusion: A comprehensive introduction to theworld of odours, not only for chemists.” –review inGerman: Monika Paduch, Gefahrstoffe - Reinhaltung Luft, October2014 A comprehensive overview of fragrance chemistry Fragrance materials are universal, from personal care productsto household cleaners, laundry products, and more. Although many ofthe scents themselves are synthesized in a lab, the actualmechanism of odour has long baffled chemists who attempt to modelit for research. In Chemistry and the Sense of Smell,industry chemist Charles S. Sell explores the chemistry and biologysurrounding the human detection and processing of odour, providinga comprehensive, single-volume guide to the totality of fragrancechemistry. The correlation between molecular structure and odour is muchmore complex than initially thought, and the intricacies of themechanism by which the brain interprets scent signals leaves muchto be discovered. This book provides a solid foundation offragrance chemistry and highlights the relationship betweenresearch and industry with topics such as: The analysis and characterization of odour The role scent plays in our lives The design and manufacture of new fragrance ingredients The relationship between molecular structure and odour The mechanism of olfaction Intellectual challenges and the future of the field Complete with illustrations that clarify difficult concepts andthe structures of the molecules under discussion, Chemistry andthe Sense of Smell is an all-inclusive guide to the science ofscent. For professionals in the fragrance industry or relatedfields, this book is one resource that should not beoverlooked.

From cooking to medicine, from engineering to art, chemistry—the science of molecules—is everywhere. A celebration of the molecules of chemistry, Every Molecule Tells a Story celebrates the molecules responsible for the experiences of everyday life: the air we breathe; the water we drink; the chemicals that fuel our living; the steroids that give us sex; the colours of the seasons; the drugs that heal us; and the scented molecules that enrich our diet and our encounters with each other. You can’t see them, but you know that they are there. Unveiling the structures of poisonous "natural" substances and beneficial man-made molecules, this book brushes away any preconceived notions about chemistry to demonstrate why and how molecules matter.

Encyclopedia of Applied Plant Sciences, Second Edition presents both foundational and applied information on plants used by humans as sources of food, raw materials, and amenity purposes. It highlights how the underlying science and information links through to applications in practical situations. Since the last edition was published, the role of applied science in agricultural production has been brought into greater focus as fluctuations in global food production feed through into prices and availability to consumers. At the same time, technological advances are changing the way plant science is done. This Second Edition has been expanded to include specific chapters on the leading crops and crop-types, as well as updated chapters on plant development, photosynthesis, metabolism, nutrition, reproduction, seed biology, plant pests and diseases, weed biology, and responses to environmental stresses. The updated chapters reflect progress, particularly in genome sequencing and molecular genetics and biotechnology, including genetic modification, that have taken place since the first edition was published. In addition, the book places these developments in the wider context of biodiversity, food security, intellectual property, and ethical considerations. Presents complete, up-to-date, authoritative information on over 25 separate areas of plant science, covering both theory and applications Edited and written by a distinguished international group of editors and contributors Provides concise, easy to read gateway entries to topics, each supplemented with a further reading list that allows practitioners, students, and researchers to delve deeper into each topic

Get a good start in flavor and fragrance chemistry! This book presents a survey of those natural and synthetic fragrance and flavor materials which are commercially available, produced and used on a relatively large scale and which are important ingredients for the creation of fragrance and flavor compositions because of their specific sensory characteristics, e.g., smell, taste. It provides information on their properties, methods employed in their manufacture, and their areas of application. This is the 5th edition of the classic "Bauer-Garbe". '...The excellent and concise introduction to this unique industry is followed by extensive information on nearly 500 of the most used fragrance and flavor compounds. Names, molecular formula, physical data, odor and flavor descriptions, uses, and a number of processes for the larger scale production of chemicals are all included. Successive chapters deal with essential oils, animal secretions, quality control, toxicology and literature. The formula, name and CAS registry number index are an invaluable and timely addition.' - Parfumer and Flavorist '...Data that would normally have to be selected from many different books are available in one source with this book...with over 800 citations throughout the text, this is a nearly inexhaustible source of information.' - Euromaterials

Witzig, warmherzig, skurril.- Kluge Frauenliteratur. Harley ist nach drei gescheiterten Ehen vom Leben enttäuscht. In der Hoffnung auf einen Neuanfang geht sie ins australische Provinznest Karakaook, um dort ein Heimatmuseum aufzubauen und eine alte Brücke als Touristenattraktion zu vermarkten. Eine leichte Aufgabe, wäre da nicht der Ingenieur Douglas, der jene alte, aber baufällige Brücke abreißen soll. Douglas, ein schüchterner Mensch, beobachtet Harley aus sicherer Entfernung. Und obwohl die Brücke sie zu Widersachern macht, überwiegt bei beiden schließlich die Neugier. Warmherzig-ironisch und mit bestechendem Blick für Situationskomik beschreibt Kate Grenville zwei Menschen, die trotz vieler Widrigkeiten und skurriler Hindernisse schließlich ihr Glück finden.

Viele chemische Stoffe und Verbindungen werden nicht in reiner Form angewandt. Um die beste Entfaltung des Wirkstoffes zu ermöglichen oder die optimalen Handels- oder Verkaufsform zu erreichen, schließen sich an die Synthese und Reinigung die Aufbereitung und Formulierung an. Die Palette der Handelsformen reicht von Pulvern, Agglomeraten, Granulaten, Suspensionen, Slurries, Emulsionen, Mikroemulsionen, Mikrokapseln, Instantpräparaten, Liposomen bis hin zu Tabletten und Dragees. Die Formulierung kann je nach Präparat in einer einfachen Mischoperation bestehen oder kompliziertere verfahrenstechnische Schritte, wie Zerkleinern, Dispergieren, Emulgieren, Agglomerieren, Solubilisieren, Trocknen usw. einschließen. Sie spannt den Bogen von der Kolloid- und Grenzflächenchemie zur Verfahrenstechnik. In diesem Buch werden die für den Formulierungschemiker in der Industrie wesentlichen physikalisch-chemischen Grundlagen und Anwendungen in der chemischen Industrie, z.B. für Pharmazeutika, Agrochemikalien, Pigmente, Farbstoffe, Lebensmittel, Additive, Waschmittel und Kosmetika sowie die geeigneten Hilfsmittel für die Struktur-Wirkungsbeziehung übersichtlich und praxisnah beschrieben.
