Advances in Chemical Physics - Stuart A. Rice (Editor); Aaron R. Dinner (Editor)
Call Number: Online eBook
ISBN: 9781118755983
Publication Date: 2014-03-14
The cutting edge of research in chemical physics Each volume of the Advances in Chemical Physics series discusses aspects of the state of diverse subjects in chemical physics and related fields, with chapters written by top researchers in the field. Reviews published in "Advances in Chemical Physics" are typically longer than those published in journals, providing the space needed for readers to fully grasp the topic, including fundamentals, latest discoveries, applications, and emerging avenues of research. Volume 155 explores: Modeling viral capsid assembly Charges at aqueous interfaces, including the development of computational approaches in direct contact with the experiment Theory and simulation advances in solute precipitate nucleation A computational viewpoint of water in the liquid state Construction of energy functions for lattice heteropolymer models, including efficient encodings for constraint satisfaction programming and quantum annealing "Advances in Chemical Physics" is ideal for introducing novices to topics in chemical physics and serves as the perfect supplement to any advanced graduate class devoted to its study. The series also provides the foundation needed for more experienced researchers to advance research studies.

While it is not difficult to find data in many cases, what advice can you get on the quality of the data retrieved? Chemical Information for Chemists could help with this problem and more. This book is a chemical information book aimed specifically at practicing chemists. Written and edited by experts in the field, it is ideal for chemists who lack a chemical information professional able to teach basic and intermediate techniques in retrieving and evaluating information using the unique entry points of the chemical literature, including structure, formula, substructure, and sequence. Aimed at students on undergraduate and graduate courses, it could also be a useful guide to new information specialists who are facing the challenging diversity of chemical literature.

Calculations in Chemistry - Eric A. Nelson; Donald J. Dahm
Call Number: Collier Campus Circulation QD39.3.M3 D34 2013
ISBN: 9780393912869
Publication Date: 2012-07-17
Recent research has documented that in K-12 programs over the past decade, instruction in math computation has been de-emphasized. Calculations in Chemistry addresses these gaps in student background, applying the findings of recent scientific research on cognition, fluency in applied mathematics, and reading comprehension, to prepare students for the rigor and pace of general chemistry.

The Chemical History of Color - Mary Virginia Orna
Call Number: Collier Campus Circulation QD473 .O76 2013
ISBN: 3642326412
Publication Date: 2012-10-06
In this brief, Mary Virginia Orna details the history of color from the chemical point of view. Beginning with the first recorded uses of color and ending in the development of our modern chemical industry, this rich, yet concise exposition shows us how color pervades every aspect of our lives. Our consciousness, our perceptions, our useful appliances and tools, our playthings, our entertainment, our health, and our diagnostic apparatus - all involve color and are based in no small part on chemistry.

Call Number: Streaming Video
Publication Date: 2014
Have you ever wondered if certain chemicals can make you irresistible to the opposite sex? James May, with the help of dynamic motion graphics, distills the sensuous secrets and explains how our world is really just one big laboratory. He discovers whether we can turn lead into gold; reveals how what you flush down your toilet could actually be making you money; explains how the booze in your bottle could power a jet; and discusses why the elements in the periodic table are just like us-they don’t all get along.

Chemical Analysis Techniques - Video Education Australasia.

Publication Date: 2014
Chemical analysis has wide-ranging applications, from its use in many different industries such as mining, environmental management and chemical manufacturing, to forensic science and cutting-edge medical testing and procedures. This high quality production explores a range of important chemical analysis techniques, including chromatography, mass spectrometry, infra-red and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). It explains how chemical principles are applied in the various analysis techniques and how it is possible to identify very specific chemical elements and compounds using them. Students of Chemistry will find the structure of this outstanding resource, together with the graphics and other visual imagery, engaging and effective in explaining the range of concepts covered.

Breaking the Wall of Sustainable Chemistry
Call Number: Streaming Video
Publication Date: 2012
In this video from the 2011 Falling Walls Conference, Paul Chirik introduces the philosophy of green chemistry as a means of combating the plague of pollution. Chirik’s work in designing products and processes that minimize the use and generation of hazardous substances has been recognized by institutions like the New York Academy of Sciences and the American Chemical Society. His research group at Princeton University is focused on discovering transition metal catalyzed reactions that reduce fossil fuel consumption, use base rather than precious metals, and minimize waste streams - as well as on developing new synthetic methods for the conversion of atmospheric nitrogen into more value-added chemicals and the replacement of heavy metals in organic synthesis and catalysis with Earth-abundant elements. While this holistic sustainable approach to chemistry already boasts of important industrial applications, it also promises long-term environmental and geopolitical impact.
