Biopolymere: Struktur und Eigenschaften by Gotthold Ebert

By Gotthold Ebert

Für das Verständnis der Eigenschaften und Funktionen von Biopolymeren, wie Nucleinsäuren, Proteinen, Polysacchariden ist die Kenntnis ihrer Struktur von grundlegender Bedeutung. Die Beziehungen zwischen der durch chemische Zusammensetzung und Sequenz der Bausteine gegebenen Primärstruktur der Moleküle und ihrer räumlichen Anordnung auf der einen und ihrer Funktion auf der anderen Seite ist bei den der Informationsspeicherung und -übermittlung dienenden Nucleinsäuren sowie bei Polypeptiden und Proteinen besonders deutlich zu erkennen. Besonderer Raum wird in diesem Zusammenhang den fibrillären Proteinen gewidmet. Änderungen der Konformation sind dabei eng mit Eigenschaften und Funktion gekoppelt. Polysaccharide dienen im pflanzlichen und tierischen Organismus als Reserve- und vor allem als Strukturmaterial, oft im Verbund mit Proteinen. Insbesondere Polysaccharide pflanzlicher Herkunft spielen als nachwachsende Rohstoffe, die jährlich in der Größenordnung von a hundred Gigatonnen synthetisiert werden, eine zunehmende Rolle. Ebenso wichtig und interessant sind aber die bemerkenswerten Eigenschaften vieler aus komplizierten Verbundsystemen bestehenden Biopolymer-Materialien. Hiervon können auch Materialwissenschaftler viele wertvolle Anregungen für die Entwicklung neuer Hochleistungs-Werkstoffe erhalten.

The Reduction of Iron Ores: Scientific Basis and Technology by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ludwig von Bogdandy, Prof. Dr. rer. nat.

By Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ludwig von Bogdandy, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Hans-Jürgen Engell (auth.)

For the English variation the publication was once revised via the authors, making an allowance for a few feedback of the readers of the German version. essentially the most very important guides within the box of iron ore aid, which seemed for the reason that 1967, were used to carry the manuscript so far as attainable modern. the sort information of Dr. okay. BOHNENKAMP of the Max-Planck-Institut fUr Eisenforschung, Dusseldorf, used to be a lot liked during this recognize. Ohapters 2.9 and 2.10, facing the relief of molten oxide slags by means of strong carbon and with the contribution of the water-gas response to iron ore relief, were extra for the English version. Ohapter 2.9 has been thoroughly revised with the sort suggestions of Dr. H. J. GRABKE, Stuttgart. Dipl.-Ing. J. LODDE contributed to this variation by means of revising the bibliography. due to the swift improvement of the blast furnace it was once essential to revise Ohapter five significantly. during this box many important feedback were made through Dipl.-Ing. G. LANGE and Dipl.-Ing. P. HEINRICH. moreover, Ohapters3 and four were completely revised via Dr.-Ing. E. FORSTER and Dr.-Ing. U. SCHIERLOH. final, yet no longer least, we need to thank our translators for his or her very good work.

Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the by P. W. Singer

By P. W. Singer

A army professional finds how technology fiction is quickly turning into fact at the battlefield, altering not only how wars are fought, but additionally the politics, economics, legislation, and ethics that encompass struggle itself

P. W. Singer’s prior books foretold the increase of non-public army contractors and the arrival of kid soldiers— predictions that proved all too actual. Now, he explores the best revolution in army affairs because the atom bomb—the introduction of robot warfare.

We are only commencing to see an immense shift in army know-how that threatens to make the stuff of I,Robot and the Terminator all too genuine. greater than seven- thousand robot platforms are actually in Iraq. Pilots in Nevada are remotely killing terrorists in Afghanistan. Scientists are debating simply how smart—and how lethal—to make their present robot prototypes. and lots of of the main popular technology fiction authors are secretly consulting for the Pentagon at the subsequent generation.

Blending historical facts with interviews from the sector, Singer vividly indicates that as those applied sciences multiply, they're going to have profound results at the entrance traces in addition to at the politics again domestic. relocating people off the battlefield makes wars more uncomplicated to begin, yet extra advanced to struggle. exchanging males with machines could avoid wasting lives, yet will reduce the morale and mental boundaries to killing. The “warrior ethos,” which has lengthy outlined soldiers’ identification, will erode, as will the legislation of conflict that experience ruled army clash for generations.

Paradoxically, those new applied sciences also will convey conflict to our doorstep. As different countries or even terrorist organisations begin to construct or purchase their very own robot guns, the robotic revolution may perhaps undermine America’s army preeminence. whereas his research is unnerving, there’s an impossible to resist gee-whiz caliber to the options Singer uncovers. Wired for War travels from Iraq to work out those robots in strive against to the latter-day “skunk works” in America’s suburbia, the place tomorrow’s applied sciences of conflict are quietly being designed. In Singer’s fingers, the way forward for conflict is as attention-grabbing because it is scary.

Reverse Technology Transfer in multinationalen Unternehmen: by Christian Rohrlack

By Christian Rohrlack

Für multinationale Unternehmen stellt das lokale Wissen ihrer Tochtergesellschaften heute einen wichtigen globalen Wettbewerbsvorteil dar. Die Bereitstellung dieses Wissens durch den erfolgreichen move von den Tochtergesellschaften zurück an die Muttergesellschaft (Reverse expertise move) erfordert jedoch andere Koordinationsmuster als bei der traditionellen Transferrichtung von der Mutter- zur Tochtergesellschaft.

Christian Rohrlack analysiert die Besonderheiten zum erfolgreichen administration von opposite know-how Transfers und zeigt die Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede in der Koordination zu traditionellen ahead know-how Transfers auf. Er diskutiert bestehende theoretische Konzepte, die er in sein Untersuchungsmodell einbezieht und anhand einer großzahligen quantitativ-empirischen Erhebung von 240 Technologietransferprojekten überprüft. Seine Ergebnisse belegen unter anderem, dass unterschiedliche Gestaltungsmuster zwischen den beiden Transferrichtungen bestehen und bei opposite know-how Transfers insbesondere die Verwendung personenorientierter Koordinationsinstrumente wie informale Kommunikation, informale conferences oder persönliche Kontakte im Vordergrund stehen.
