The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York

By Deborah Blum

***PBS's AMERICAN event published a movie in keeping with The Poisoner's instruction manual in January 2014***

Equal components actual crime, twentieth-century background, and technological know-how mystery, The Poisoner's Handbook is "a vicious, page-turning tale that reads extra like Raymond Chandler than Madame Curie" (The big apple Observer)

A attention-grabbing Jazz Age story of chemistry and detection, poison and homicide, The Poisoner's Handbook is a page-turning account of a forgotten period. In early twentieth-century long island, poisons provided a simple route to definitely the right crime. technology had no position within the Tammany Hall-controlled coroner's place of work, and corruption ran rampant. despite the fact that, with the appointment of leader medical expert Charles Norris in 1918, the poison video game replaced eternally. including toxicologist Alexander Gettler, the duo set the justice process on fireplace with their trailblazing medical detective paintings, winning over likely unbeatable odds to develop into the pioneers of forensic chemistry and the gatekeepers of justice.

Napoleon's Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History

By Penny LeCouteur

Even though many components were proposed to give an explanation for the failure of Napoleon's 1812 Russian crusade, it has additionally been associated with whatever as small as a button-a tin button, the sort that fixed every thing from the greatcoats of Napoleon's officials to the trousers of his foot infantrymen. while temperatures drop under 56°F, tin crumbles into powder. have been the warriors of the Grande Armée fatally weakened through chilly as the buttons in their uniforms fell aside? How diverse our global can be if tin didn't fall apart at low temperatures and the French had persevered their eastward growth!

This interesting e-book tells the tales of seventeen molecules that, just like the tin of these buttons, significantly inspired the process heritage. those molecules supplied the impetus for early exploration and made attainable the resultant voyages of discovery. They led to grand feats of engineering and spurred advances in medication; lie at the back of alterations in gender roles, in legislation, and within the setting; and feature decided what we this day consume, drink, and put on.

displaying how a transformation as small because the place of an atom can result in huge, immense transformations within the houses of a substance, the authors exhibit the striking chemical connections between doubtless unrelated occasions. Napoleon's Buttons bargains a unique approach to know the way our modern international works and the way our civilization has been formed through the years.

Archimedes to Hawking: Laws of Science and the Great Minds Behind Them

Archimedes to Hawking takes the reader on a trip around the centuries because it explores the eponymous actual laws--from Archimedes' legislation of Buoyancy and Kepler's legislation of Planetary movement to Heisenberg's Uncertainty precept and Hubble's legislation of Cosmic Expansion--whose ramifications have profoundly altered our daily lives and our figuring out of the universe.
all through this interesting e-book, Clifford Pickover invitations us to proportion within the extraordinary adventures of very good, quirky, and passionate humans after whom those legislation are named. those lawgivers become a desirable, assorted, and infrequently eccentric staff of individuals. Many have been tremendous flexible polymaths--human dynamos with a possible endless provide of interest and effort and who labored in lots of diversified components in technology. Others had non-conventional educations and displayed their strange abilities from an early age. a few skilled resistance to their principles, inflicting major own suffering. Pickover examines greater than forty nice legislation, offering short and cogent introductions to the technology in the back of the legislation in addition to attractive biographies of such scientists as Newton, Faraday, Ohm, Curie, and Planck. all through, he comprises interesting, little-known tidbits in terms of the legislations or lawgiver, and he offers cross-references to different legislation or equations pointed out within the e-book. For numerous entries, he contains uncomplicated numerical examples and solved difficulties in order that readers could have a hands-on figuring out of the applying of the law.
A sweeping survey of clinical discovery in addition to an interesting portrait gallery of a few of the best minds in historical past, this incredible quantity will have interaction each person attracted to technological know-how and the actual international or within the marvelous creativity of those tremendous thinkers.

Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry (Volume 5)

By Andrew B. Hughes

This is the final of 5 books within the Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in natural Synthesis series. 

Closing a spot within the literature, this is often the single sequence to hide this significant subject in natural and biochemistry. Drawing upon the mixed services of the overseas "who's who" in amino acid study, those volumes characterize a true benchmark for amino acid chemistry, delivering a finished dialogue of the incidence, makes use of and functions of amino acids and, through extension, their polymeric kinds, peptides and proteins.

The functional price of every quantity is heightened by means of the inclusion of experimental procedures.


The five volumes hide the next topics:

Volume 1: Origins and Synthesis of Amino Acids

Volume 2: transformed Amino Acids, Organocatalysis and Enzymes

Volume three: development Blocks, Catalysis and Coupling Chemistry

Volume four: safety Reactions, Medicinal Chemistry, Combinatorial Synthesis

Volume five: research and serve as of Amino Acids and Peptides


Volume five of this sequence offers a wealth of easy methods to research amino acids and peptides. Classical methods are defined, equivalent to X-ray research, chromatographic equipment, NMR, AFM, mass spectrometry and 2D-gel electrophoresis, in addition to more moderen techniques, together with floor Plasmon Resonance and array technologies.


Originally deliberate as a six quantity sequence, Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in natural Chemistry now completes with 5 volumes yet is still complete in either scope and coverage.
