The Springer Handbook of Odor is the definitive guide to all aspects related to the study of smell and their impact on human life. For the first time, this handbook aligns the senso-chemo-analytical characterization of everyday smells encountered by mankind, with the elucidation of perceptual, hedonic, behavioral and physiological responses of humans to such odors. From birth onwards we learn to interact with our environment using our sense of smell. Moreover, evolutionary processes have engendered a multi-faceted communication that is supported - even dominated - by olfaction. This compilation examines the responses of humans to odors at different stages of life, thereby building a foundation for a widely overseen area of research with broader ramifications for human life. The expert international authors and editor align aspects, concepts, methodologies and perspectives from a broad range of different disciplines related to the science of smell. These include chemistry, physiology, psychology, material sciences, technology but also disciplines related to linguistics, culture, art and design. This handbook, edited by an internationally renowned aroma scientist with the support of an outstanding team of over 60 authors, is an authoritative reference for researchers in the field of odors both in academia and in industry and is also a useful reference for newcomers to the area.

In this eye-opening expos , acclaimed health journalist and National Geographic contributor Maryn McKenna documents how antibiotics transformed chicken from local delicacy to industrial commodity--and human health threat--uncovering the ways we can make America's favorite meat safer again. What you eat matters--for your health, for the environment, and for future generations. In this riveting investigative narrative, McKenna dives deep into the world of modern agriculture by way of chicken: from the farm where it's raised directly to your dinner table. Consumed more than any other meat in the United States, chicken is emblematic of today's mass food-processing practices and their profound influence on our lives and health. Tracing its meteoric rise from scarce treat to ubiquitous global commodity, McKenna reveals the astounding role of antibiotics in industrial farming, documenting how and why "wonder drugs" revolutionized the way the world eats--and not necessarily for the better. Rich with scientific, historical, and cultural insights, this spellbinding cautionary tale shines a light on one of America's favorite foods--and shows us the way to safer, healthier eating for ourselves and our children.

The first edition of this handbook was a tremendous success, collating the scientific literature on this topic that had otherwise been rather limited and scattered throughout numerous journals and patents. The result was a comprehensive resource that addresses the preparation, selection, and use of pharmaceutically active salts, examining the opportunities for increased efficacy and improved drug delivery provided by the selection of an optimal salt. This second, revised edition is designed to meet the continued interest in both the topic and the book.
Altogether, the contributions to this book by international team of authors from academia and pharmaceutical industry reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the science involved in selection of suitable salt forms for new drug products. They present the necessary theoretical foundations as well as a wealth of detailed practical experience in the choice of pharmaceutically active salts, taking great care to address every conceivable aspect of the preparation of pharmaceutical salts.
An introductory chapter presents a concise review of the various objectives in the pursuit of pharmaceutically active salts, followed by the theoretical background of salt formation. There then follow chapters on the practice of salt formation in an industrial R&D environment, as well as regulatory and patent issues. Practical examples for the practitioners at the lab bench are provided, before the book concludes with a comprehensive annotated compilation of the individual salt-forming acids and bases with their relevant properties, followed by an appendix containing tables with the acids and bases sorted alphabetically and by pKa, supplemented with other useful facts and data.
An essential reference for students of medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, and an indispensable handbook for R&D chemists, analytical chemists, biologists, development pharmacists, regulatory and patent specialists, and medicinal scientists engaged in preclinical development of drugs. In addition, this comprehensive and up-to-date guide is an instructive companion for all scientists involved in the research and development of drugs and, in particular, of pharmaceutical dosage forms.

This first advanced textbook covering the fundamentals and industry applications of process intensification (PI) discusses both the theoretical and conceptual basis of the discipline. Since interdisciplinarity is a key feature of PI, the material contained in the book reaches far beyond the classical area of chemical engineering. Developments in other relevant disciplines, such as chemistry, catalysis, energy technology, applied physics, electronics and materials science, are extensively described and discussed, while maintaining a chemical engineering perspective. Divided into three major parts, the first introduces the PI principles in detail and illustrates them using practical examples. The second part is entirely devoted to fundamental approaches of PI in four domains: spatial, thermodynamic, functional and temporal. The third and final part explores the methodology for applying fundamental PI approaches in practice. As well as detailing technologies, the book focuses on safety, energy and environmental issues, giving guidance on how to incorporate PI in plant design and operation -- safely, efficiently and effectively.

R1,356 R966 Discovery Miles 9 660 Save R390 (29%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

This book comprehensively argues for more future benchmarking between nations. Since the initial food safety benchmarking report was published in 2008, the sharing of data and protocols among nations has dramatically increased. It was intended to identify and evaluate common elements among global food safety systems. More specifically, benchmarking identifies those countries that employ comparatively best practices to assess, manage, and communicate the risks related to the safety of food and their respective food systems. The overarching intent of this benchmarking assessment, however, is to stimulate exchange and discussion on food safety performance among nations.
