Selected Titles in Chemistry


Caccavale, F., et al. Control and Monitoring of Chemical Batch Reactors. Advances in Industrial Control,. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of new work in all aspects of industrial control.
Chebanov, V. A., et al. Azaheterocycles Based on **, *ø-Unsaturated Carbonyls. This monograph is devoted to heterocyclization of aliphatic and aromatic a,©*-unsaturated carbonyls with various binucleophiles and provides a comprehensive review of the known literature data devoted to the reactions of a,©*-unsaturated ketones, their synthetic equivalents and precursor. It is intended for chemists working in the field of experimental syntheses and theoretical investigations of nitrogen-containing heterocycles, lecturers at university and graduate students.
Demaison, J., et al. (2011). Equilibrium molecular structures : from spectroscopy to quantum chemistry. Boca Raton, CRC Press.  "Written following a new paradigm, this textbook takes advantage of the insight of world experts who have contributed chapters and relies upon its editors to seamlessly integrate the information into a unified presentation. It covers experimental and computational techniques and compares different methods. The book goes on to describe their interplay and the advantages of their combined use. It is not merely a review of the modern literature, but a true textbook that can be used by advanced students"--
Gunstone, F. D. (1979). Aliphatic and related natural product chemistry : a review of the literature published during 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980 and 1981. London, Chemical Society.          
Keller, W. D. (1957). The principles of chemical weathering : an integrated review of the principles of chemical weathering as taken from the literature, and the relation of weathering to certain aspects of geology, pedology and civilization. Columbia, Mo., Lucas Brothers.    
Lewars, E. G. and SpringerLink (Online service) Computational Chemistry Introduction to the Theory and Applications of Molecular and Quantum Mechanics. The second edition of this popular textbook has been revised to improve explanations and to add topics which were not featured in the first edition. It also contains extended, updated examples and references. The questions (the hallmark of a genuine textbook) at the end of each chapter fall into two classes: to test and reinforce the reader*€*s understanding, and to encourage deeper thought. 
Marciniec, B. and SpringerLink (Online service) Hydrosilylation A Comprehensive Review on Recent Advances. Advances In Silicon Science,. For fifty years, Hydrosilylation has been one of the most fundamental and elegant methods for the laboratory and industrial synthesis of organosilicon and silicon related compounds. Despite the intensive research and continued interest generated by organosilicon compounds, no comprehensive book incorporating the various aspects of Hydrosilylation has been published this century. The survey of the literature published over the last two decades, including ca 2000 articles, patents and reviews, enables the authors to discuss the most recent aspects of hydrosilylation advances, (i.e. catalytic and synthetic) as well as to elucidate the reaction mechanism for the given catalyst used and the reaction utilization.
Rauf, A., et al. Microwave-Induced Synthesis of Aromatic Heterocycles. SpringerBriefs in Molecular Science,.  For more than a century, heterocycles have played a crucial role in the biological and industrial development of society, becoming one of the most researched areas within organic chemistry. The first chapter of Microwave-Induced Synthesis of Aromatic Heterocycles **is based on microwave theory, the latest developments in instrumentation technology, and the various microwave technologies used for synthesis. The remainder of the chapters are divided into two sections. Section A deals with the five-membered heterocycles (pyrazoles, isoxazoles, triazoles, oxadiazoles, thiazoles, imidazoles, oxazoles, oxazolines etc.) and in Section B, various six-membered heterocycles (triazines, benzoxazoles, benzimidazoles, benzothiazoles) are presented. Both sections contain a detailed, recent literature review of microwave assisted synthesis and its applicability to various aromatic heterocyclics.
