Gels Handbook

This major reference work, covering the important materials science area of gels, is a translation of a Japanese handbook. The three-volume set is organized to cover the following: fundamentals, functions, and environmental issues. Gels Handbook also contains an appendix, complete references, and data on gel compounds. Recently, polymer gels have attracted many scientific researchers, medical doctors, and pharmaceutical, chemical, and agricultural engineers to the rapidly growing field. Gels are considered to be one of the most promising materials in the 21st Century. They are unique in that they are soft, gentle, and can sense and accommodate environmental changes. Because of these unique characteristics gels have a huge potential in technological and medical applications. They are irreplaceable in the separation of molecules, the release of drugs, artificial skins and organs, sensors, actuators, chemical memories, and many other applications. The 21st century is also said to be the century of biotechnology, where two kinds of biopolymers play crucial roles: DNA as a bearer of genetic information and proteins as molecular machines. In spite of the dramatic progress in molecular biology and the Human Genome project, the basic principles behind the function and design of such polymeric machines are in the black box. Science and technologies that will emerge from those of polymer gels will shed light on such principles. Some researchers have already developed prototypes of artificial glands (pancreas), artificial muscles and actuators, and chemical sensors and molecular recovery systems using polymer gels. The Gels Handbook is an invaluable source of information on this rapidly growing field. It covers the entire area from the scientific basics to the applications of the materials. The authors are among the leading researchers, doctors, engineers, and patent officers in Japan. This book can be used as a textbook or an encyclopedia and is a must for those involved in gel research or applications. Key Features * Comprehensive coverage of a popular topic in materials science * Is the first english-language gels handbook * Includes numerous figures, tables, and photos

The Handbook

Writing to a Roman layman and enquiring Christian named Lawrence in AD 421, Augustine intended The Handbook : A Guide on Faith, Hope, and Love as a guide for catechesis and spiritual development. In this strikingly concise book, he breaks down Christian life to its most basic elementsfaith, hope, and loveand by examining these central commitments he provides one of the most accessible and direct introductions to Christianity and to his thought. The Handbook distills the essence of Christian belief and, whether read for spiritual growth or for its intellectual significance, shows the power of Augustine's mind and the clarity of his prose. Augustine writes with an unmatched range, drawing from classical scholarship, Christian scripture, and his own experiences to address the key issues in Christian faith, including the creation of the world, evil, original sin, Jesus and the incarnation of God, justification, baptism, the Church, faith and works, salvation, and the destiny of man. Few have ever matched Augustine's grasp of what it means to view the world as a Christian. He presents a fully formed vision of Christianity in a clear and pastoral form that keeps the reader always engaged in the practical applications of faith and leaves little doubt as to why his work continues to be read and appreciated in the present day.

Enzyme Handbook

In the five years since the appearance of the Enzyme Handbook several hundred new enzymes have been described. The Supplement includes molecu lar and kinetic data on about half of these and also on several enzymes omitted from the Handbook, information on many of the remainder will be found in Enzyme Nomenclature (1972). An incomplete search of the literature may have resulted in the omission of a number of enzymes from the Sup pleinent and I apologize to the authors whose contributlOns I have misseQ. The labour involved in compiling the data for the Supplement was greatly reduced by the kindness of Professor E. C. Webb who sent me a draft copy of Enzyme Nomenclature (1972) prior to publication. Dr. E. A. Jones ana Dr. G. S. Knaggs reviewed the entire text of the Supplement and I am grateful for their criticisms and suggestions. I also thank-the manYleople who offered constructive criticisms of the earlier Enzyme Handboo . Several of these suggestions have been incorporated into the Supplement. I am grateful to Mrs. Anna Knaggs for her expert typing and for making the manuscript ready for photomechanical reproouction, to Mrs. Lucia Barman for preparing the lists of references and the index and to the staff of Springer-Verlag for giving me every possible assistance in seeing the Supplement to completion. I am indebted to Professor E. C.
