Electron transfer reactions: inorganic, organometallic, and by Stephan S. Isied

By Stephan S. Isied

Starts with a historic assessment via Henry Taube. Overviews the advances pioneered by way of Taube, together with mechanisms of electron move reactions, cost move complexes, and *p again bonding results in metal-ligand interactions. Discusses functions of rules of electron move to different components of chemistry and biology corresponding to the selective and regulated oxidation of natural useful teams, polymerization catalysis, steel organic interactions with DNA, organic electron move reactions, and new imaging brokers in diagnostic drugs.

Radiology by Amit Mehta, Douglas P. Beall

By Amit Mehta, Douglas P. Beall

A concise and accomplished assessment of findings and differential diagnoses stumbled on at the oral board exam for diagnostic radiology. Drawing on pertinent and key differential diagnoses, the authors have assembled and arranged the diagnoses probably to seem at the examination and illustrated them with crucial photographs to augment the findings linked to every one differential. also, with each one discovering set is equipped a mnemonic to reinforce remember of any lacking elements of the differential that might be thought of very important. as a result of their concise presentation, many instances could be tested, interpreted, accomplished, and memorized very quickly in one sitting. because the majority of situations comprise prototypical representations of pathology, the ebook additionally serves as a very good reference resource for a few years after the reader has taken and handed the oral board exam. A CD-ROM variation of the e-book (ISBN: 1-58829-928-7), offered individually, is offered to be used at the reader's computer or PDA.
