The Structure and Properties of Water - download pdf or read online

The authors have correlated many experimental observations and theoretical discussions from the clinical literature on water. subject matters lined contain the water molecule and forces among water molecules; the thermodynamic homes of steam; the buildings of the ices; the thermodynamic, electric, spectroscopic, and delivery homes of the ices and of liquid water; hydrogen bonding in ice and water; and types for liquid water.

Karl Kadish, Roger Guilard, Kevin M. Smith's The Porphyrin Handbook. Applications of Phthalocyanines PDF

The Porphyrin guide, quantity 19: purposes of Phthalocyanines offers details pertinent to each point of the chemistry, synthesis, spectroscopy, and constitution of phthalocyanines. This publication examines the biology and clinical implications of porphyrin structures. equipped into 5 chapters, this quantity starts with an outline of the fundamental photobiology of phthalocyanines, their structure–activity relationships, mechanisms of motion in a number of organic platforms, and their capability functions for numerous scientific reasons.

Download e-book for iPad: The Chemistry of the Non-Metals by P. Powell

This ebook is a brand new try and interrelate the chemistry of the non-metals. within the early chapters, basic compounds of the non-metals with the halogens, hydrogen, and oxygen are surveyed, allowing a wide quarter of chemistry to be mentioned with no the load of too many proof. The structural relationships within the elemental types of the non-metals are then used as an advent to the catenated compounds, together with the boron hydrides.

Example text

There are mainly five types of sensitivity [38]. 1 Sensitivity to Impact This represents the ease with which an explosive can be set off by a blow impact and is expressed in terms of the distance through which a standard weight is allowed to drop to cause an explosive to explode. 2 Sensitivity to Friction This represents the ease with which an explosive can be set off by a blow friction and is expressed in terms of what occurs when a pendulum of known weight scrapes across an explosive (ignites or explodes or snaps or crackles).

3 Sensitivity and Sensitiveness These two terms: ‘sensitivity’ and ‘sensitiveness’ are referred in the context of explosives, propellants and pyrotechnics and relate to two rather similar properties of explosives that is, ‘ease of initiation’ and ‘propagating capability’. In some circles, it is customary to use ‘sensitivity’ to mean ‘ease of initiation’ whereas 20 1 Salient Features of Explosives ‘sensitiveness’ to mean ‘propagating capability’. In others, the converse is believed to be true and in yet others, these terms are used synonymously.

Subsequently, Bowden and Yoffe developed a well-known concept of ‘hot spots’ and the initiation of explosion from ‘hot spots’ created by thermal factors, crystal hardness and shapes [47]. According to Bowden and Yoffe, when a solid or liquid explosive is subjected to impact or friction, the explosion which may result is generally thermal in origin. That is to say the mechanical energy is first degraded to heat and concentrated in a small localized region to form a ‘hot spot’. The size of the ‘hot spot’ is of the order of 10−3 to 10−5 cm in diameter.
