Energetic Materials: Particle Processing and Characterization
Incorporation of particular components with specialized properties allows one to tailor the end product's properties. For instance, the sensitivity, burning behavior, thermal or mechanical properties or stability of energetic materials can be affected and even controllably varied through incorporation of such ingredients. This book examines particle technologies as applied to energetic materials such as propellants and explosives, thus filling a void in the literature on this subject. Following an introduction covering general features of energetic materials, the first section of this book describes methods of manufacturing particulate energetic materials, including size reduction, crystallization, atomization, particle formation using supercritical fluids and microencapsulation, agglomeration phenomena, special considerations in mixing explosive particles and the production of nanoparticles. The second section discusses the characterization of particulate materials. Techniques and methods such as particle size analysis, morphology elucidation and the determination of chemical and thermal properties are presented. The wettability of powders and rheological behavior of suspensions and solids are also considered. Furthermore, methods of determining the performance of particular energetic materials are described. Each chapter deals with fundamentals and application possibilities of the various methods presented, with particular emphasis on issues applicable to particulate energetic materials. The book is thus equally relevant for chemists, physicists, material scientists, chemical and mechanical engineers and anyone interested or engaged in particle processing and characterization technologies.

This handbook provides the first-ever inside view of today's integrated approach to rational drug design. Chemoinformatics experts from large pharmaceutical companies, as well as from chemoinformatics service providers and from academia demonstrate what can be achieved today by harnessing the power of computational methods for the drug discovery process. With the user rather than the developer of chemoinformatics software in mind, this book describes the successful application of computational tools to real-life problems and presents solution strategies to commonly encountered problems. It shows how almost every step of the drug discovery pipeline can be optimized and accelerated by using chemoinformatics tools-from the management of compound databases to targeted combinatorial synthesis, virtual screening and efficient hit-to-lead transition. It is an invaluable resource for drug developers and medicinal chemists in academia and industry.

New Developments in Polymer Analytics II
The two volumes New Developments in Polymer Analytics deal with recent progress in the characterization of polymers, mostly in solution but also at s- faces. Despite the fact that almost all of the described techniques are getting on in years, the contributions are expected to meet the readers interest because either the methods are newly applied to polymers or the instrumentation has achieved a major breakthrough leading to an enhanced utilizaton by polymer scientists. The first volume concentrates on separation techniques. H. Pasch summarizes the recent successes of multi-dimensional chromatography in the characteri- tion of copolymers. Both, chain length distribution and the compositional h- erogeneity of copolymers are accessible. Capillary electrophoresis is widely and successfully utilized for the characterization of biopolymers, particular of DNA. It is only recently that the technique has been applied to the characterization of water soluble synthetic macromolecules. This contributrion of Grosche and Engelhardt focuses on the analysis of polyelectrolytes by capillary electopho- sis. The last contribution of the first volume by Coelfen and Antonietti sum- rizes the achievements and pitfalls of field flow fractionation techniques. The major drawbacks in the instrumentation have been overcome in recent years and the triple F techniques are currently advancing to a powerful competitor to size exclusion chromatography.

Lecture Notes on Principles of Plasma Processing
Plasma processing of semiconductors is an interdisciplinary field requiring knowledge of both plasma physics and chemical engineering. The two authors are experts in each of these fields, and their collaboration results in the merging of these fields with a common terminology. Basic plasma concepts are introduced painlessly to those who have studied undergraduate electromagnetics but have had no previous exposure to plasmas. Unnecessarily detailed derivations are omitted; yet the reader is led to understand in some depth those concepts, such as the structure of sheaths, that are important in the design and operation of plasma processing reactors. Physicists not accustomed to low-temperature plasmas are introduced to chemical kinetics, surface science, and molecular spectroscopy. The material has been condensed to suit a nine-week graduate course, but it is sufficient to bring the reader up to date on current problems such as copper interconnects, low-k and high-k dielectrics, and oxide damage. Students will appreciate the web-style layout with ample color illustrations opposite the text, with ample room for notes. This short book is ideal for new workers in the semiconductor industry who want to be brought up to speed with minimum effort. It is also suitable for Chemical Engineering students studying plasma processing of materials; Engineers, physicists, and technicians entering the semiconductor industry who want a quick overview of the use of plasmas in the industry.

Until now, the literature has offered a rather limited approach to the use of fundamental kinetics and their application to catalytic reactions. Subsequently, this book spans the full range from fundamentals of kinetics and heterogeneous catalysis via modern experimental and theoretical results of model studies to their equivalent large-scale industrial production processes. This second edition includes significant new developments, with all the chapters updated by way of recent examples and relevant new literature. With its focus on practical application, rather than theory, the result is key knowledge for students at technical universities and professionals already working in industry. From Reviews of the First Edition: 'I am impressed by the coverage of the book and it is a valuable addition to the catalysis literature and I highly recommend purchase' (Energy Sources) '...this excellent book is highly recommended to students at technical universities, but also entrants in chemical industry. Furthermore, this informative handbook is also a must for all professionals in the community.' (AFS) 'Overall, this is a valuable book that I will use in teaching undergraduates and postgraduates.'

Modern Advances in Chromatography
Chromatography is the separation method for biological molecules from the analytical to the preparative scale. Few of the recent advances in life science, whether in proteomics or in the industrial production of recombinant therapeutics, would have been possible without the help of chromatographic separations. Concomitantly, chromatography nowadays stands for much more than a batch column packed with porous particles. In this book eminent experts from academia and industry introduce the reader to some of the recent new developments in this exciting area. Ranging from evolving nanoanalytical techniques to advances in the material sciences and artificial antibodies and finally continuous large scale separations of the most fragile biologicals, this book should provide interesting reading material for students and practitioners from various fields.

Stabilizing and Optimizing Control for Time-Delay Systems: Including Model Predictive Controls
Stabilizing and Optimizing Control for Time-Delay Systems introduces three important classes of stabilizing controls for time-delay systems: non-optimal (without performance criteria); suboptimal (including guaranteed costs); and optimal controls. Each class is treated in detail and compared in terms of prior control structures. State- and input-delayed systems are considered. The book provides a unified mathematical framework with common notation being used throughout. Receding-horizon, or model predictive, linear quadratic (LQ), linear-quadratic-Gaussian and H controls for time-delay systems are chosen as optimal stabilizing controls. Cost monotonicity is investigated in order to guarantee the asymptotic stability of closed-loop systems operating with such controls. The authors use guaranteed LQ and H controls as representative sub-optimal methods; these are obtained with pre-determined control structures and certain upper bounds of performance criteria. Non-optimal stabilizing controls are obtained with predetermined control structures but with no performance criteria. Recently developed inequalities are exploited to obtain less conservative results. To facilitate computation, the authors use linear matrix inequalities to represent gain matrices for non-optimal and sub-optimal stabilizing controls, and all the initial conditions of coupled differential Riccati equations of optimal stabilizing controls. Numerical examples are provided with MATLAB (R) codes (downloadable from http://extras.springer.com/) to give readers guidance in working with more difficult optimal and suboptimal controls. Academic researchers studying control of a variety of real processes in chemistry, biology, transportation, digital communication networks and mechanical systems that are subject to time delays will find the results presented in Stabilizing and Optimizing Control for Time-Delay Systems to be helpful in their work. Practitioners working in related sectors of industry will also find this book to be of use in developing real-world control systems for the many time-delayed processes they encounter.
