Analytical Applications of Ionic Liquids reviews the current research in analytic chemistry, covering subjects as diverse as separation science, chromatography, spectroscopy and analytical electrochemistry.As scientific developments have moved into the 21st century, they have increasingly had to take into account the effects on the environment, both locally and globally. Ionic liquids promise entirely new methods for solution chemistry which could improve the quality of measurements and eliminate the negative impact of waste on the environment. Because of this, the search for applications of ionic liquids is growing in every area of analytical chemistry. Here, material is presented by specialists, giving a critical overview of the current literature surrounding this increasingly prominent topic. Analysis is carried out on latest achievements and applications, followed by critical discussion of possible future developments.As well as stimulating further research among established analytical chemists, this book can also be used for undergraduate and graduate courses on chemistry and chemical technology.

Providing a streamlined, clear pathway through A&P Anatomy & Physiology, Sixth Edition answers the demand for a leaner version of Elaine Marieb and Katja Hoehn's best-selling Human Anatomy & Physiology while maintaining its trusted, accurate approach. This streamlined text excludes coverage of pregnancy & human development, heredity, and the developmental aspects of body systems, while providing coverage of key A&P concepts. With the newly revised Sixth Edition, Marieb and Hoehn introduce a clear pathway through A&P that helps students and instructors focus on key concepts and make meaningful connections. The new modular organization makes key concepts more readily apparent and understandable to students, and new "Why This Matters" videos help students see why the content is important not only for their course, but also for their future careers. An expanded suite of learning tools in the book and in MasteringA&P guide students through important concepts. Also available with MasteringA&P. MasteringA&P is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Instructors ensure that students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics(TM). Students can further master concepts after class through assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts. Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MasteringA&P does not come packaged with this content. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MasteringA&P, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MasteringA&P, search for: 0134201663 Anatomy & Physiology Plus MasteringA&P with eText -- Access Card Package, 6/e Package consists of: *0134283384 / 9780134283388 MasteringA&P with Pearson eText -- ValuePack Access Card -- for Anatomy & Physiology, 6/e*0134156412 / 9780134156415 Anatomy & Physiology, 6/e.

Nanomaterials have been used for years in industries such as consumer products, textile production, and biomedicine, yet the literature outlining their use in environmental causes is limited. The safety, toxicity, transportation, and removal of this technology must be addressed as nanotechnology and nanomaterial use is expected to grow. Applying Nanotechnology for Environmental Sustainability addresses the applications of nanomaterials in the field of environmental conservation and sustainability, and analyses the potential risks associated with their use. It elucidates the scientific concepts and emerging technologies in nanoscience and nanotoxicity by offering a wide range of innovative topics and reviews regarding its use. This publication is essential for environmental engineers, researchers, consultants, students, regulators, and professionals in the field of nanotechnology.

Arsenic is a naturally occurring element and, as such, it is present in the environment and in our food and drink. It can even be involved in supporting life processes. However, due to its toxicity, there is concern about its presence in our diet. This book examines the real risks and impacts of arsenic in our lives. Looking at arsenic and its compounds, this book explores the presence of arsenic in food and water, the need to clarify its toxicity, and current scientific and public misconceptions about arsenic. It also looks at the use of arsenic in medicine, from cancer treatments to alternative therapies such as homeopathy. Following on from "Is Arsenic an Aphrodisiac?: The Sociochemistry of an Element", this book continues the authors work in addressing the issues surrounding arsenic. It is a fascinating read for general readers as it unveils the reality of our exposure to arsenic in our daily lives.
