'Chemical Principles of Textile Conservation' provides must-have knowledge for conservators who do not always have a scientific background. This vital book brings together from many sources the material science necessary to understand the properties, deterioration and investigation of textile artefacts. It also aids understanding of the chemical processes during various treatments, such as: cleaning; humidification; drying; disinfestation; disinfection; and the use of adhesives and consolidants in conservation of historical textiles. Textile conservators will now have ready access to the necessary knowledge to understand the chemistry of the objects they are asked to treat and to make informed decisions about how to preserve textiles. The combination of a chemist and a conservator provides the perfect authorial team. It ensures a unique dual function of the text which provides textile conservators with vital chemical knowledge and gives scientists an understanding of textile conservation necessary to direct their research. The many practical examples and case studies illustrate the utility of the relatively large chemical introduction and the essential chemical information which is included. The case studies, many illustrated in colour, range from the treatment of the Ghandis' clothes, high-altitude flying suits and a Mary Quant raincoat, to the Hungarian Coronation Mantle.

An authoritative introduction to the scientific principles underlying environmental pollution, this book covers the transport, toxicity, and analysis of pollutants and discusses the major types of contaminant chemicals. Students will gain an understanding of the scientific principles of pollution at the chemical level and be able to approach the contentious issues in a rational way. Taking a pollution oriented approach, the authors discuss legislative limits, analysis of metals, oestrogenic chemicals, indoor and vehicular pollution, pesticides, dioxin-like substances, and more.

This book is an authoritative monograph on the recent progresses in the chemistry of bioluminescence. It provides a comprehensive overview of the past and the latest developments in understanding the biochemical mechanisms of some 35 different types of luminous organisms, together with information helpful to students and researchers in an Appendix. It is the first and only book that provides chemical information on all currently known bioluminescence systems. Dr Shimomura is the leading practitioner in the field for the past half century, and is best known for his discovery of the jellyfish photoprotein aequorin and the green fluorescent protein. Fully revised since its publication in 2006, it now incorporates the most recent advances in the subject area. A new section on "Green Fluorescent Protein" has been added at the end of Chapter 4. It contains an extensive reference section.

Henry Jay Forman, Jon Fukuto and Martine Torres "Research is to see what everybody else has seen and to think what nobody else has thought. " -- Albert Szent-Gyorgyi Several years ago, one of us put together a book that dealt with various aspects of oxidative stress and introduced the concept of signal transduction by oxidants. Since then, the interest in the mechanisms by which reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) can modulate the cell’s response has tremendously grown, paralleling the intense efforts towards identifying new signaling pathways in which phosphorylation/dephosphorylation events take center stage. Evidence is now mounting that production of these species by the cells is required for their function from growth to apoptosis and numerous signaling pathways have been identified where the participation of ROS and RNS is apparent (see Chapters 11-14, 16 and 18). Thus, the field is no more limited to the group of free radical aficionados who have pioneered this area of research but has now gone mainstream. While it is satisfactory for those of us who have been working on this topic for a long time, it has the risk of becoming the “fashionable” motto where those molecules, still mysterious to some, become responsible for everything and anything.

Covers the current state of theoretical and experimental studies of oligomeric mixed systems from the physico-chemical standpoint and provides a technologist with the means for the quantitative approach to preparing liquid oligomeric compositions and choosing proper operating conditions for their processing into materials and articles. Recommendations are given on the practical use of found physico-patterns as well as the physico-chemical analysis of the effect of the composition ingredients on the final properties.
