Polyurethane Immobilization of Cells and Biomolecules: Medical and Environmental Applications

Wiley | English | 2018 | ISBN-10: 1119254698 | 240 pages | EPUB | 11.59 mb

by T. Thomson (Author)

This book provides a comprehensive review of the chemistry and research illustrating the benefits of polyurethane for immobilizing cells, with dozens of case studies in medical devices and environmental engineering.
Polyurethane is a material especially suited for immobilizing cells, given its unique properties with applications ranging from environmental remediation to medical devices. While immobilization is well known among environmental engineers, specifically for enzymes, it is less well known among medical researchers.
Motivated to fill this need and directed towards biotechnologists working in environmental and medical research, Polyurethane Immobilization of Cells and Biomolecules: Medical and Environmental Applications describes research on the use of polyurethane as an immobilizing agent for cells and active molecules. After an introductory chapter on chemistry, the bulk of the book divides into two sections medical applications and environmental remediation. They are juxtaposed to create cross-fertilization, meaning a medical researcher can benefit from applications taught in the environmental section and visa-versa.
As a valuable resource for applied biotechnologists in different industries, this book offers readers key benefits including:
Offers an essential resource for medical and environmental scientists
Provides a multidisciplinary and lucid writing style that uses little or no jargon
Extrapolates current technology into advanced areas, especially environmental remediation and medical devices
Fills the gap between immobilization research and practical applications
Little or no jargon in a multidisciplinary and lucid writing style
The extrapolation of current technology into advanced areas, especially environmental remediation and medical devices
A bridge between immobilization research and practical applications

Amélia Martins Delgado, “Chemistry of the Mediterranean Diet”

English | ISBN: 3319293680 | 2016 | 259 pages | PDF | 6 MB

Have you ever wondered what makes the Mediterranean diet so healthy? Do you enjoy olives, tomatoes, Chouriço and Mozzarella, basil, rosemary and oregano, grapes, figs, and dates; and would you like to learn more about the substances they contain? Then this book is for you!
The Mediterranean diet, designated as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, has a reputation of being particularly beneficial to your health and for reducing the risk of diseases like cardiovascular disorders. Read this book to find out which chemical compounds contribute to these health benefits. Typical ingredients of the Mediterranean diet include olive oils, fresh and dried vegetables and fruits, cereals, moderate amounts of fish, dairy and meat, and various condiments and spices, typically accompanied by wine and infusions. The book will introduce you to the most typical ingredients, providing information about their use in Mediterranean cuisine and explaining more about the healthy substances they contain from their chemistry to their occurrence in the foods and the resulting intake. Summarizing important facts and data from available scientific literature, this book even gives recommendations for guidelines to a healthy diet guidelines that are becoming more and more important. In recent years, it has been observed that nutritional habits in the geographical area have started to deviate further and further away from the typical Mediterranean nutritional pattern, representing an alarming trend that this book also critically addresses, since the WHO has reported increases in obesity and malnutrition in the Mediterranean area.
Illustrations of important chemical compound structures, as well as appetizing photos of select ingredients for Mediterranean dishes, accompany the text.

These are exciting times for biofuels and renewable chemicals. A sense of urgency is driving a frenzy of activity on both research and commercialization fronts. Presciently, the American Chemical Society selected “Chemistry for a Sustainable World” as the theme for the Spring 2010 national meeting within which was organized a symposium entitled “Renewable and Sustainable Polymers”.
This book compiles a series of chapters from this symposium and provides a sampling of the promising opportunities and research directions currently underway across the globe. Included are chapters on the synthesis of materials from renewable feedstocks such as seed oils, carbohydrates and proteins as well as chapters on how advances in chemical and biological catalysis are enabling entirely new monomers and polymers.

Anne Marie Dixon, “Environmental Monitoring for Cleanrooms and Controlled Environments”

English | 2006 | ISBN: 0824723597 | PDF | pages: 254 | 2.9 mb

A critical technology in the science of contamination control, environmental monitoring is a technique that provides important data on the quality of a process, processing environment, and final product, which can aid scientists in identifying and eliminating potential sources of contamination in cleanrooms and controlled environments. In response to the scattered industry and ISO standards and technical reports on the subject, this title provides comprehensive information about environmental monitoring, including monitoring of viable and non-viable air, surfaces, water, alert and action levels, trending, procedures for responding to excursions, certification Because the interpretation of results is vital in controlling contamination, several chapters discuss the presentation of data, trending, and investigations, and how they are valuable in reducing risk to the product, process, and patient.
