By Charles E. Taylor,Jonathan T. Kwan

This publication had its genesis in a symposium on fuel hydrates provided on the 2003 Spring nationwide assembly of the yank Institute of Chemical Engineers. The symposium consisted of twenty papers provided in 4 classes over days. extra visitor authors have been invited to supply continuity and canopy themes now not addressed throughout the symposium. gasoline hydrates are a special category of chemical substances the place molecules of 1 compound (the visitor fabric) are enclosed, with out bonding chemically, inside an open strong lattice composed of one other compound (the host material). these kinds of configurations are referred to as clathrates. The visitor molecules, u- best friend gases, are of an acceptable measurement such that they healthy in the cage shaped by means of the host fabric. Commonexamples of gasoline hydrates are carbon dioxide/water and methane/water clathrates. At normal strain and temperature, methane hydrate includes by way of quantity a hundred and eighty occasions as a lot methane as hydrate. the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has expected that there's extra natural carbon c- tained as methane hydrate than all other kinds of fossil fuels mixed. in truth, methane hydrates may supply a fresh resource of power for numerous centuries. Clathrate compounds have been first chanced on within the early 1800s whilst Humphrey Davy and Michael Faraday have been experimenting with chlorine-water mixtures.

A Handbook of Magnetochemical Formulae (Elsevier Insights)

Magnetochemistry is worried with the examine of magnetic homes in fabrics. It investigates the connection among the magnetic houses of chemicals and their atomic and molecular constitution. This swiftly turning out to be box has a few purposes, and the measuring and examining of magnetic homes is frequently carried out through scientists who're now not experts within the box.

High Temperature Properties and Thermal Decomposition of Inorganic Salts with Oxyanions

20 years in the past writer Kurt Stern produced 4 monographs for the nationwide Bureau of criteria at the high-temperature houses of inorganic salts containing oxyanions. even supposing relied upon through scientists and engineers worldwide, those monographs have now develop into more and more tough to entry and more and more superseded.

Advanced Inorganic Chemistry: Applications in Everyday Life

Complicated Inorganic Chemistry: purposes in daily life connects key issues at the topic with real stories in nature and lifestyle. Differing from different foundational texts with this emphasis on functions and examples, the textual content uniquely starts with a spotlight at the shapes (geometry) dictating intermolecular forces of sights, resulting in reactivity among molecules of alternative shapes.
