Smart polymers are macromolecules capable of undergoing rapid, reversible
phase transitions from a hydrophilic to a hydrophobic microstructure. These
transitions are triggered by small shifts in the local environment, such as
slight variations in temperature, pH, ionic strength, or the concentration of
specific substances like sugars.
Smart polymers have an extensive range of applications, but this book
focuses solely on their roles within the fields of bioseparation and biomedicine.
Until recently, polymers were considered to be passive participants
within these fields.
Tuyển tập báo cáo các nghiên cứu khoa học quốc tế ngành hóa học dành cho các bạn yêu hóa học tham khảo đề tài: Luminescence of colloidal CdSe/ZnS nanoparticles: high sensitivity to solvent phase transitions
This book is based on a short graduate course given by one of us
(M.G) at New York University and at Bar-Ilan University, Israel.
The decision to publish these lectures as a book was made, after
some doubts, for the following reason. The theory of phase transitions,
with excellent agreement between theory and experiment, was
developed some forty years ago culminating in Wilson’s Nobel prize
and the Wolf prize awarded to Kadanoff, Fisher and Wilson.
The aims of thesis: studying of the phase structure of LSM and LSMq with two different forms of symmetry breaking term: the standard case and non – standard case; studying of the effect from neutrality condition on the phase structure of LSM and LSMq; studying of the chiral phase transition in compactified space

Modern physics is confronted with a large variety of complex spatial structures;
almost every research group in physics is working with spatial data. Pattern formation
in chemical reactions, mesoscopic phases of complex fluids such as liquid
crystals or microemulsions, fluid structures on planar substrates (well-known
as water droplets on a window glass), or the large-scale distribution of galaxies
in the universe are only a few prominent examples where spatial structures
are relevant for the understanding of physical phenomena....
Using synchrotron X-ray diffraction the thermal behaviour
was studied of the cubic phases in the 1-monooleoyl-rac-glycerol (MO)/n-octyl-b-D-glucopyranoside (OG)/
system with 58 or 45 wt % MO concentration and varying
H2O contents. These MO contents correspond to a
Pn3mcubic single-phase or aPn3mcubic phase in excess
water on the binary MO/water axis of the ternary phase
diagram. The cubic liquid crystalline phases are stable with
small fractions of OG, while higher OG concentrations
trigger a cubic-to-lamellar phase transition. ...
Acicular BaTiO3 particles were developed using solution systems. The morphology of BaC2O4
0.5H2O was controlled to acicular shape. Its phase transition to BaTiO3 was realized by
introducing Ti ions from the coprecipitated amorphous phase. Acicular BaTiO3 particles have
an aspect ratio as high as 18 and the particle size can be controlled by varying the growth
period of BaC2O4 · 0.5H2O which governs the size of BaC2O4 · 0.5H2O particles. Acicular
particles of crystalline BaTiO3 can be used for ultra-thin multilayer ceramic capacitors. ...
Dynamical systems theory in mathematical biology and environmental science
has attracted much attention from many scientific fields as well as mathematics.
For example, “chaos” is one of its typical topics. Recently the preservation
of endangered species has become one of the most important issues
in biology and environmental science, because of the recent rapid loss of
biodiversity in the world. In this respect, permanence or persistence, new
concepts in dynamical systems theory, seem important.

The field of molecular biophysics is introduced in the following pages.
The presentation focuses on the simple underlying concepts and demonstrates
them using a series of up to date applications. It is hoped that the
approach will appeal to physical scientists who are confronted with
biological questions for the first time as they become involved in the
current biotechnological revolution.
The field of biochemistry is vast and it is not the aim of this textbook
to encompass the whole area.
The International Symposium on Nuclear Structure Physics (NP2001) was
held in Gottingen Germany, March 5-8, 2001. The aim of the Symposium
was to discuss recent achievements and new initiatives for research in nuclear
structure and to celebrate the career of Peter von Brentano.
