Book Excerpt :

This book presents the fundamental scientific principles of long afterglow phosphorescent materials and a comprehensive review of both commercialized afterglow materials and the latest advances in the development of novel long afterglow materials. It is designed to supply much needed information about inorganic and organic afterglow materials, including detailed treatment of structure, classification, preparation techniques, characterization, surface modification chemistry, and optical measurements. Special attention is given to technological applications such as photovoltaics, photocatalytic reactions, and lighting and molecular sensing. Although traditional long afterglow phosphors have been widely investigated and used in industry, and significant efforts have recently been made toward the use of these materials for bioimaging, there is to date no scientific monograph dedicated to afterglow materials. This book not only provides a beginners’ guide to the fundamentals of afterglow luminescence and materials, but also gives skilled researchers essential updates on emerging trends and efforts. The work provides a special focus on organic afterglow materials, which offer several advantages such as light-weight, flexible, and wide varieties; mild preparation conditions; and good processability. This book is aimed at postgraduate students, researchers, and technologists who are engaged in the synthesis, development, and commercialization of afterglow materials. It represents essential reading on interdisciplinary frontiers in the materials science, chemistry, photophysics, and biological aspects of afterglow materials.

Based on inorganic chemistry, it is intended as a reader for graduate students and young researchers beginning work in ceramics. The importance of the book is that it provides a scientific understanding of structure, properties, and processing from the chemical aspect, leading to creation of future ceramics. Ceramics have high hardness, strength, thermal and chemical stability, as well as various electromagnetic functions. To take full advantage of ceramics, their use has been advanced to engineering and electronic ceramics. Most ceramics have been fabricated by powder processing, and new technologies have also evolved such as CVD and sol-gel methods: new ceramics aimed at new functions of highly pure oxides and artificial nitrides, carbides, and borides; fine ceramics focused on precise control of composition and microstructure; and design of unique morphology, such as nanoparticles, nanofibers, nanosheets, mesoporous materials, and hybrids. Materials are composed of atoms and molecules. They are assembled into crystals and are amorphous, leading to 3-D micro/nano structures. In addition to the topics described above, this book shows the importance of chemistry for materials design at the nanometer scale, and that chemistry develops new fields of environment, energy, informatics, biomaterials, and other areas.

Book Short Summary:

Fluorescence and Phosphorescence Spectroscopy: Physicochemical Principles and Practice deals with the physicochemical principles and applications of fluorescence and phosphorescence spectroscopy in experimental biology and chemistry. Topics covered include the absorption of light by molecules; instrumentation for the measurement of fluorescence and phosphorescence; solvent and acidity effects on electronic spectra; and polarization of fluorescence and phosphorescence. Comprised of four chapters, this book begins with a discussion on photophysical processes in isolated molecules and molecules in solution, paying particular attention to thermal equilibration of electronically excited molecules, phototautomerism, and coordination by metal ions. The next chapter describes the instrumentation for measuring fluorescence and phosphorescence, which consists essentially of a light source to electronically excite the sample; a monochromator to separate the light of desired energy from the source; a sample compartment; a second monochromator to isolate the sample's fluorescence energy from the excitation energy; a photodetector to translate the fluorescent light into an electrical signal; and a readout system such as a galvanometer or a recorder, coupled with an amplifier to determine the intensity of fluorescent light that is emitted. The final chapter is devoted to various applications of fluorescence and phosphorescence spectroscopy, including the analysis of organic and inorganic compounds. This monograph is written primarily for analytical chemists and biological scientists.

Book Short Summary:

“The Naturalist In La Plata” is a collection of essays by Argentinian naturalist William Henry Hudson, first published in 1895. They primarily concern the Pampas, an area in the South American lowlands where Hudson grew up, and constitute a masterful blend of scientific content and interesting stories, anecdotes, and other titbits from his observations of the area. Contents include: "The Desert Pampas", "Cub Puma, Or Lion Of America", "Wave Of Life", "Some Curious Animal Weapons", "Fear In Birds Parental And Early Instincts", "The Mephitic Skunk", "Mimicry And Warning Colours In Grasshoppers", "Dragon-fly", "Storms", and "Mosquitoes And Parasite Problems". William Henry Hudson (1841 – 1922) was an Argentinian naturalist, author, and ornithologist. He was one of the founding members of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, and is best known for his novel “Green Mansions” (1904). Other notable works include “A Crystal Age” (1887) and “Far Away and Long Ago” (1918), which has since been adapted into a film. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
