Design and Use of Relational Databases in Chemistry

By TJ O'Donnell

Optimize Your Chemical Database

Design and Use of Relational Databases in Chemistry helps programmers and clients increase their skill to go looking and manage chemical buildings and data, specially while utilizing chemical database "cartridges". It illustrates how the organizational, info integrity, and extensibility houses of relational databases are top applied whilst operating with chemical information.

The writer allows an realizing of latest relational database schemas and exhibits how one can layout new schemas that include tables of knowledge and chemical buildings. by utilizing database extension cartridges, he offers how to effectively shop and seek chemical constructions. He explains how you can obtain and set up an absolutely functioning database utilizing unfastened, open-source chemical extension cartridges inside PostgreSQL. the writer additionally discusses the best way to entry a database on a working laptop or computer community utilizing either new and current applications.

Through examples of fine database layout, this ebook exhibits you that relational databases are tips on how to shop, seek, and function on chemical information.

Making Marie Curie: Intellectual Property and Celebrity Culture in an Age of Information (science.culture)

In some ways, Marie Curie represents smooth technology. Her significant lifetime achievements—the first girl to be presented a Nobel Prize, the single lady to be provided the Prize in fields, and the one individual to be offered Nobel Prizes in a number of sciences—are studied by way of schoolchildren internationally. while, in 2009, the New Scientist performed a ballot for the “Most Inspirational lady Scientist of All Time,” the outcome used to be a foregone end: Marie Curie trounced her closest runner-up, Rosalind Franklin, profitable double the variety of Franklin’s votes. She is a task version to girls embarking on a occupation in technology, the satisfaction of 2 nations—Poland and France—and, no longer least of all, a ecu Union model for excellence in science.

Making Marie Curie explores what went into the construction of this icon of technological know-how. it's not a standard biography, or person who makes an attempt to discover the “real” Marie Curie. really, Eva Hemmungs Wirtén, by means of tracing a profession that spans centuries and a global warfare, offers an leading edge and traditionally grounded account of the way sleek technological know-how emerges in tandem with star tradition below the effect of highbrow estate in a dawning age of data. She explores the emergence of the Curie personality, the data tradition of the interval that formed its improvement, and the innovations Curie used to control and make the most her highbrow estate. How did one create and hold for oneself the personality of scientist at the start of the 20th century? What exact stipulations bore upon medical women, and on married ladies particularly? How was once French id claimed, validated, and subverted? How, and with what outcomes, used to be a systematic acceptance secured?

In its exploration of those questions and plenty of extra, Making Marie Curie presents a composite photo not just of the making of Marie Curie, however the making of recent technological know-how itself.

Chemistry

This absolutely up to date 9th version of Steven and Susan Zumdahl's CHEMISTRY brings jointly the cast pedagogy, easy-to-use media, and interactive routines that ultra-modern teachers want for his or her basic chemistry path. instead of targeting rote memorization, CHEMISTRY makes use of a considerate strategy outfitted on problem-solving. For the 9th version, the authors have extra a brand new emphasis on serious systematic challenge fixing, new serious considering questions, and new computer-based interactive examples to aid scholars how to technique and remedy chemical problems--to learn how to imagine like chemists--so that they could practice the method of challenge fixing to all features in their lives. scholars are supplied with the instruments to turn into serious thinkers: to invite questions, to use ideas and advance versions, and to judge the end result. furthermore, Steven and Susan Zumdahl crafted ChemWork, an internet application incorporated in OWL on-line internet studying to aid their process, a lot as an teacher would supply help in the course of workplace hours. ChemWork is only one of many research aids on hand with CHEMISTRY that helps the hallmarks of the textbook--a powerful emphasis on types, genuine global purposes, visible studying, and self sufficient challenge fixing. on hand with InfoTrac scholar Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Advanced Organic Chemistry: Reactions, Mechanisms, and Structure

By Jerry March

After 4 variants, it is nonetheless the reference scholars and pros expect. complicated natural Chemistry Fourth version just one reference has introduced regularly incisive, up-to date, and entire insurance of the main beneficial reactions in natural chemistry on to the fingertips of either scholars and pros: complicated natural Chemistry. prepared via response variety, a characteristic that makes transparent the elemental ideas underlying the approximately 580 reactions defined, complex natural Chemistry bargains immediate entry to every reaction's scope, obstacles, and mechanisms. Balancing well timed element and informative breadth, this new up-to-date Fourth version:

  • Describes the constitution of natural compounds, together with chemical bonding and stereochemistry
  • Reviews normal response mechanisms, together with traditional reactions and photochemical reactions
  • Includes a survey of reactions, prepared by way of response sort and wherein bonds are damaged and formed
  • Includes IUPAC's latest approach for designating response mechanisms
  • Features an index to the tools used for getting ready given sorts of compounds
  • Contains greater than 15,000 references-5,000 new to this edition-to unique papers

The Lost Elements: The Periodic Table's Shadow Side

By Marco Fontani, Mariagrazia Costa, Mary Virginia Orna

The Periodic desk of parts hasn't regularly gave the impression of it does now, a well-organized chart prepared by way of atomic quantity. within the mid-nineteenth century, chemists have been of the idea that the weather can be taken care of by means of atomic weight. notwithstanding, the weights of many components have been calculated incorrectly, and through the years it turned transparent that not just did the weather want rearranging, yet that the periodic desk contained many gaps and omissions: there have been components but to be found, and the attract of discovering one had scientists speeding to fill within the blanks. meant "discoveries" flooded laboratories, and the talk over what did and didn't belong at the periodic desk reached a fever pitch. With the invention of radioactivity, the discourse basically intensified. all through its formation, the Periodic desk of parts has noticeable fake entries, good-faith error, retractions, and useless ends. in truth, there were extra falsely proclaimed elemental discoveries all through heritage than there are parts at the desk as we all know it today.

The misplaced parts: The Periodic Table's Shadow Side collects the main striking of those circumstances, stretching from the 19th century to the current. The publication tells the tale of ways scientists have come to appreciate parts, by means of discussing the failed theories and fake discoveries that formed the trail of medical development. We study of early chemists' obdurate refusal to ignore alchemy as a sound perform, and of 1 German's intended discovery of an elemental steel that breathed. As components started to be created artificially within the 20th century, we watch the invention weather shift to desire the physicists, instead of the chemists. alongside the best way, Fontani, Costa, and Orna introduce us to the foremost figures within the improvement of contemporary periodic desk, together with Lavoisier and Mendeleev. that includes a preface from Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann, The misplaced Elements is an expansive heritage of the inaccurate aspect of chemical discovery-and finds how those blunders and gaffes have contributed to shaping the desk up to the other type of medical progress.
