By Herbert L. Hergert (auth.), Richard W. Hemingway, Joseph J. Karchesy, Susan J. Branham (eds.)

This publication used to be built from the court cases of the 1st North American Tannin convention held in Port. Angeles, Washington, August 1988. the target of the convention was once to collect individuals with a typical curiosity in condensed tannins and to advertise interdisciplinary interactions that may bring about a greater figuring out of those vital components. Anot. her target was once the publicat. ion of this booklet simply because there has no longer been a monograph dedicated to the chemistry and value of tannins for numerous many years. The booklet is geared up into sections facing the biosynthesis, constitution, re­ activities, complexation with different biopolymers, organic value, and use of tannins as strong point chemical compounds. The authors made a unique try and specialize in what we do not understand in addition to to supply a precis of what we do understand to be able to help in making plans destiny study. Our thank you visit the authors who so kindly contributed chapters and so pa­ tiently spoke back to our requests. We additionally thank Rylee Geboski and the convention support. ance employees, collage of Forestry, Oregon kingdom collage, for his or her counsel in making plans and carrying out t. he convention, and Julia Wilson, Debbie Wolfe, Helen Coletka, and Nancy Greene of the Southern wooded area test Station, Pineville, Louisiana, who typed the chapt. ers.

Download Einfuhrung in die Technische Chemie (German Edition) by Arno Behr, David W. Agar, Jakob Jörissen, Andreas J. Vorholt PDF

By Arno Behr, David W. Agar, Jakob Jörissen, Andreas J. Vorholt

Zum Lehrbuch: Dieses kompakte Einf?hrungslehrbuch vermittelt die wesentlichen Grundlagen der Technischen Chemie. Es richtet sich in erster Linie an Studierende der Chemie sowie des Chemie- und des Bioingenieurwesens und setzt lediglich solide Grundkenntnisse in organischer, anorganischer und physikalischer Chemie voraus. Das Werk ist in 19 etwa gleich lange Kapitel unterteilt, die jeweils ungef?hr dem Umfang einer doppelst?ndigen Vorlesung mit ?bung entsprechen. Die ?berschaubaren Einheiten erleichtern es auch, sich den Inhalt im Selbststudium anzueignen. Die vier Kapitelbl?cke „Grundlagen", „Reaktions- und Trenntechnik", „Verfahrensentwicklung" und „Chemische Prozesse" folgen im Wesentlichen dem „Lehrprofil Technische Chemie" des DECHEMA-Unterrichtsausschusses f?r Technische Chemie. Der Teil „Grundlagen" liefert allgemeine Definitionen und beschreibt den Weg von der Laborchemie ?ber den Technikums- bis zum Produktionsma?stab. Der Leser erh?lt hier Informationen ?ber den aktuellen Prozessverbund der chemischen Industrie und ?ber die wesentlichen Produktstammb?ume. Zwei Kapitel ?ber physikalisch-chemische Grundlagen legen die foundation f?r das Verst?ndnis der Abl?ufe in industriellen Reaktions- und Trennapparaturen. Im Teil „Reaktions- und Trenntechnik" wird zun?chst der Reaktionsteil eines chemischen Prozesses betrachtet, einschlie?lich einer ?bersicht ?ber ideale und reale Reaktortypen. Das n?chste Thema sind die thermischen und mechanischen Grundoperationen, die zur Vorbereitung von Edukten und zur Nachbereitung von Prozessstr?men von wesentlicher Bedeutung sind. Schlie?lich wird der Leser mit dem Aufbau von chemischen Flie?schemata vertraut gemacht, die die Kommunikation zwischen dem Chemiker und dem Ingenieur erleichtern. Der Teil „Verfahrensentwicklung" widmet sich den entscheidenden Aspekten bei der Auswahl eines chemischen Verfahrens f?r die industrielle Chemie. Hier geht es um Fragen wie die Auswahl der optimalen Rohstoffe, die Verwendung von Koppelprodukten und die Nutzung von Energiestr?men. Auch die bei der Verfahrensentwicklung zu ber?cksichtigenden Sicherheitsauflagen und Umweltaspekte kommen zur Sprache. Da bei der Optimierung chemischer Prozesse katalytische Reaktionen eine zentrale Rolle einnehmen, stellen eigene Kapitel die heterogene und die homogene Katalyse an wichtigen Beispielen vor. Der Teil „Chemische Prozesse" gibt einen kurzen ?berblick ?ber die wichtigsten Produktgruppen der industriellen Chemie. Von den Rohstoffen Erd?l, Erdgas und Kochsalz ausgehend werden bedeutende organische und anorganische foundation- und Zwischenchemikalien vorgestellt. Wesentliche Endprodukte der chemischen Industrie, die Polymeren und die organischen Feinchemikalien, sind ein weiteres Thema. Ausf?hrlich diskutiert werden schlie?lich auch moderne traits wie beispielsweise der langfristige Wechsel von fossilen zu nachwachsenden Rohstoffen. Jedes Kapitel ist kompakt aufgebaut und mit Abbildungen, Gleichungen, Flie?schemata, Tabellen, Apparatezeichnungen und Fotos anschaulich gestaltet. Die Kapitel enden jeweils mit einer kurzen Zusammenfassung, den „Take domestic Messages". Diese rekapitulieren noch einmal alle wesentlichen Aussagen des Kapitels und erm?glichen eine z?gige Wiederholung des Lernstoffes. Erg?nzt wird jedes Kapitel durch zehn kurze Testfragen, die sogenannten „Quickies", die sich nach sorgf?ltigem Durcharbeiten des Textes schnell l?sen lassen; die Antworten stehen zudem am Ende des Buches. Dort findet guy ferner zu allen Kapiteln die Literaturangaben, die sich auf wesentliche Nachschlagewerke und Lehrb?cher konzentrieren.
