Focusing on complex naturally-occurring and synthetic supramolecular arrays, this work describes the mechanism by which transition metal complexes bind to DNA and how the DNA scaffold modifies the photochemical and photophysical properties to bound complexes. It includes details of photoinduced electron transfer between intercalated molecules, and examines thermally and photochemically induced electron transfer in supramolecular assemblies consisting of inorganic molecular building blocks.
Thermophysical Properties of Liquid Crystals offers directions for the theoretical study of the structure and properties of nematic, smectic and cholesteric liquid crystals. It elucidates the molecular structure of chiral nematics and examines the optical and thermodynamic properties of liquid crystals in supercooled states. Further, it provides data on solutions of liquid crystals, including information on density and enthalpy, gives state diagrams of different types of solutions, and covers ot
LIPIDAT is a convenient compilation of thermodynamic data and bibliographic information on lipids. Over 11,000 records in 15 information fields are provided. The book presents tabulations of all known mesomorphic and polymorphic phase transition types, temperatures, and enthalpies for synthetic and biologically derived lipids in dry, partially hydrated, and fully hydrated states. It also includes the effect of pH, protein, drugs, salt, and metal ion concentration on these thermodynamic values.
Create powerful strategies for your nonprofit organization to achieve breakthrough performance in mission impactDoes your nonprofit have a reliable way of knowing the impact its making? Beginning with an eye-opening discussion of what strategy is, Mission Impact: A Breakthrough Strategy for Nonprofits reveals how the process of strategy development should be designed with authoritative coverage of mission impact, vision, five year strategic stretch goals, strategy implementation, and management.
