Structure-Property Relations by Professor Robert E. Newnham (auth.)

By Professor Robert E. Newnham (auth.)

As a boy I enjoyed to construct version airplanes, no longer the snap-together plastic types of at the present time, however the outdated Spads and Sopwith Camels made from balsa wooden and tissue paper. I dreamed of EDDIE RICKENBACKER and dogfights with the crimson Baron as I sat there sniffing aircraft glue. mom proposal i'd by no means develop as much as make a good dwelling, and moms are by no means improper. Thirty years later I sit down in a study laboratory surrounded through crystal versions and dream of what it might be wish to be 1 A tall, to arrange atoms with decide and shovel, and make humorous issues take place inside of. Professor VON HIPPEL calls it "Molecular Engineering," the construction of fabrics and units to reserve: we commence to layout fabrics with prescribed homes, to less than­ stand the molecular explanations in their failings, to construct into them secure­ guards opposed to such failure, and to reach at real yardsticks of final functionality. now not shackled to shortly to be had fabrics, we're loose to dream and locate solutions to remarkable demanding situations. it's this innovative state of affairs which makes scientists and engineers actual allies in an exceptional experience of the human brain [1]. This e-book is set structure-property relationships, extra specifically purposes of crystal chemistry to engineering difficulties. confronted with the duty of discovering new fabrics, the crystallographer makes use of ionic radii, crystal fields, anisotropic atomic groupings, and symmetry arguments as standards within the fabrics choice process.

Thermodynamic Basis of Crystal Growth: P-T-X Phase by Jacob Greenberg

By Jacob Greenberg

The homes of a few inorganic fabrics (semiconductors, and high-Tc superconductors, particularly) are strongly depending on the composition of the crystal, while the homogeneity diversity, or the utmost non-stoichiometry of the forged, is especially usually below the precision of the traditional analytical tools (roughly 0.1 at.%). accordingly, new and extra delicate tools needs to be built to probe the non-stoichiometry. for plenty of sorts of fabrics vapor strain scanning could be this kind of method. this system used to be constructed by way of the writer, and it's a means of opting for the composition of the forged, X, on the measured temperature, T, and strain, P, with an unheard of accuracy of as much as 10-4 at.% at excessive temperatures (up to 1200° C). in addition to the consequences received through the writer and his colleagues, P-T-X diagrams of different very important fabrics (e.g. III-V, IV-VI semiconductors) also are mentioned. The exposition is in elements. within the first one a geometric thermodynamic process is used for a step by step presentation of P-T-X diagrams of binary structures. the categories of diagrams most often encountered in fabrics technological know-how are mentioned. The composition of crystals grown from quite a few matrices is gifted along with the P-T-X diagrams. within the moment half examples of structures that have been lately experimentally studied are given. during the e-book emphasis is put on the section Rule argument of common solubility. this is often the place this booklet differs from the opposite (quite scarce) texts on P-T-X part diagrams. This publication could be of curiosity to the vast neighborhood of fabrics scientists, and to school teachers and their students.

Crystallography: An Introduction by Walter Borchardt-Ott (auth.)

By Walter Borchardt-Ott (auth.)

As a self-study advisor, path primer or instructing reduction, Borchardt-Ott's Crystallography is the best textbook for college students and lecturers alike. in truth, it may be utilized by crystallographers, chemists, mineralogists, geologists and physicists. in line with the author's greater than 25 years of training event, the publication has quite a few line drawings designed particularly for the textual content and various routines - with recommendations - on the finish of every bankruptcy. This third variation is the interpretation of the 7th German variation with new chapters all in favour of crystal chemistry and x-ray diffraction methods.

Principles of Protein X-Ray Crystallography by Jan Drenth

By Jan Drenth

X-ray crystallography has lengthy been an important approach for learning the constitution of proteins and different macromolecules. because the value of proteins keeps to develop, in fields from biochemistry and biophysics to pharmaceutical improvement and biotechnology, many researchers have stumbled on wisdom of X-ray diffraction is an critical software. during this new version of his crucial paintings, Dr. Jan Drenth, well-known across the world for his a variety of contributions to crystallographic study, has supplied an updated and technically rigorous creation to the subject.

Principles of Protein X-ray Crystallography presents the theoretical history essential to know how the constitution of proteins is decided at atomic answer. it truly is meant to function an advent for graduate scholars, postdoctoral researchers, and demonstrated scientists who are looking to use protein crystallography of their personal endeavors, or have to comprehend the topic so one can significantly overview the literature. New additions to the booklet comprise a bit on twinning, an extra bankruptcy on crystal progress and a dialogue of single-wavelength anomalous dispersion (SAD).

Reviews:

"The new edition... will deliver very important and important, and well timed, assurance of twinning and of unhappy phasing." – Professor John Helliwell, division of Chemistry, college of Manchester

"a entire and as much as date... unmarried resource of theory." – Duncan McRee, President, ActiveSight

About the Authors:

Dr. Jan Drenth is a professor emeritus on the Laboratory of Biophysical Chemistry on the collage of Groningen, The Netherlands.
