Students are naturally drawn to quantum science by the intriguing behaviors of small particles. However, they can also be intimidated by the lengthy and complicated treatment found in the classroom. Understanding Quantum Science: A Concise Primer for Students of Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Physics is a highly accessible book that offers students an opportunity to grasp the most fascinating of quantum topics, without the intimidation. To be sure, math is necessary, but it is introduced as needed and kept concise. The emphasis is on the science: a certain differential equation can be solved, and when it is, we find the energies that hydrogen atom electrons are allowed to have. Each concept is developed in this manner, keeping focus on how and why it arises, and on the intriguing consequences.
This book provides a brief tour of some of the wonders of quantum science. But it is more than that, it is designed to be the most concise tour possible that truly explains how these wonders arise so that you can develop a working understanding of quantum concepts. If your goal is loftier and you wish to become a quantum specialist, the conceptual groundwork presented here, along with rationalization of the mathematics required, will position you well for higher level classes.

Edited by a team of highly respected researchers combining their expertise in chemistry, physics, and medicine, this book focuses on the use of ruthenium-containing complexes in artificial photosynthesis and medicine. Following a brief introduction to the basic coordination chemistry of ruthenium-containing complexes and their synthesis, as well as their photophysical and photochemical properties, the authors discuss in detail the major concepts of artificial photosynthesis and mechanisms of hydrogen production and water oxidation with ruthenium. The second part of the text covers biological properties and important medical applications of ruthenium-containing complexes as therapeutic agents or in diagnostic imaging. Aimed at stimulating research in this active field, this is an invaluable information source for researchers in academia, health research institutes, and governmental departments working in the field of organometallic chemistry, green and sustainable chemistry as well as medicine/drug discovery, while equally serving as a useful reference also for scientists in industry.

Biochalcogen Chemistry: The Biological Chemistry of Sulfur, Selenium, and Tellurium highlights the biological uses of heavy chalcogens as a key area of focus in bioinorganic chemistry and a unifying theme for research in a wide variety of disciplines. Recent achievements in these multidisciplinary efforts are presented that discuss the subtle, yet important roles of biochalcogens in living systems as sulfur- and selenium-containing metabolic intermediates and products (Chapters 1 and 10) and in their oxidation when coordinated to metals (Chapters 3 and 4). Chemical and instrumental tools for detecting sulfur and selenium species and their functionalities are also discussed (Chapters 2 and 6), as are new directions in biochalcogen applications to redox scavenging, both in terms of synthesis (Chapters 7 and 8) and mechanistic modeling (Chapter 9). Tellurium, with no natural biological function, is represented together with sulfur and selenium as a phasing agent in nucleic acid crystallography and for other biological studies (Chapter 5)… [From Amazon.com]
