His Brother's Keeper: A Story from the Edge of Medicine

Stephen Heywood was once twenty-nine years outdated while he discovered that he used to be death of ALS -- Lou Gehrig's sickness. virtually in a single day his older brother, Jamie, grew to become himself right into a genetic engineer in a quixotic race to medication the incurable. His Brother's Keeper is a strong account in their tale, as they go back and forth jointly to the sting of medication.

The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe

An eye-opening, unique number of stunning, never-before-seen photographic representations of the 118 parts within the periodic desk.

The parts are what we, and every thing round us, are made from. yet what number parts has a person really obvious in natural, uncombined shape? the weather offers this infrequent chance. in keeping with seven years of study and images, the images during this publication make up the main whole, and visually arresting, illustration to be had to the bare eye of each atom within the universe. prepared so as of visual appeal at the periodic desk, each one point is represented via a variety that features a beautiful, full-page, full-color photo that the majority heavily represents it in its purest shape. for instance, at -183°C, oxygen turns from a drab fuel to a gorgeous faded blue liquid.

Also incorporated are interesting proof, figures, and tales of the weather in addition to facts at the homes of every, together with atomic weight, density, melting and boiling aspect, valence, electronegativity, and the yr and placement within which it was once found. numerous extra photos convey every one point in just a little altered varieties or as utilized in quite a few functional methods. The element's place at the periodic desk is pinpointed on a mini rendering of the desk and an illustrated scale of the element's boiling and/or melting issues seems on each one web page besides a density scale that runs alongside the ground.

Packed with attention-grabbing details, this mix of stable technological know-how and lovely inventive images is the right present booklet for each sentient creature within the universe.

The science of ethanol

This booklet covers all elements related to the creation and use of ethanol. themes contain the optimization of uncooked fabrics, strength, capital, strategy model-based laptop keep watch over, and human assets to provide ethanol. It compares and contrasts techniques to arrange ethanol utilizing biotechnology techniques to arrange ethanol from chemical synthesis.

Example text

The wavelength falls, the interaction may be sufficiently strong to induce an internal photoelectric effect in which electrons from an 46 Peter Hayfield inner band level are excited to an outer level. With the noble metals, the excitation of a d-band electron gives rise to a specific absorption and hence color. The absorption in copper begins near 4600 A and the metal therefore reflects the complimentary visible spectrum colors and is reddish in appearance. In gold, absorption begins at a lower wavelength, and hence more yellow can occur in the reflected light than with copper, giving gold its characteristic color.

ELLIPSOMETRY IN CORROSION TECHNOLOGY Peter Hayfield Imperial Metals Industries, Ltd. Birmingham, England INTRODUCTION Ellipsometry is a technique for examining interfaces, in which use is made of the change in the polarization of light that occurs on reflection at an oblique angle of incidence. It may be used to determine either the optical parameters of one of the media involved, or, if an interfacial film is present, the thickness and optical properties of the layer. The attraction in applying the technique to corrosion studies is in measuring the thickness of corrosion films, and usually this can be done in situ with little or no interference to the reaction under investigation.
