Chemicals often have a negative Image among the general public. But there is no material world or indeed human beings without chemicals. The material world is operated by chemicals. The title ‘Chemicals for Life and Living’ implies that the material world is staged and played by chemicals. The book consists of five parts and an appendix. Part 1 – Essentials for life; Part 2 – Enhancing health; Part 3 – For the fun of life; Part 4 – Chemistry of the universe and earth, and Part 5 - Some negative effects of chemicals. The appendix gives a brief summary of what chemistry is all about, including a short chapter of chemical principles. No quantitative calculations are included in this book so that it is appealing for everyone – not just chemists.

Living with the Stars tells the fascinating story of what truly makes the human body. The body that is with us all our lives is always changing. We are quite literally not who we were years, weeks, or even days ago: our cells die and are replaced by new ones at an astonishing pace. The entire body continually rebuilds itself, time and again, using the food and water that flow through us as fuel and as construction material. What persists over time is not fixed but merely a pattern in flux. We rebuild using elements captured from our surroundings, and are thereby connected to animals and plants around us, and to the bacteria within us that help digest them, and to geological processes such as continental drift and volcanism here on Earth. We are also intimately linked to the Sun's nuclear furnace and to the solar wind, to collisions with asteroids and to the cycles of the birth of stars and their deaths in cataclysmic supernovae, and ultimately to the beginning of the universe. Our bodies are made of the burned out embers of stars that were released into the galaxy in massive explosions billions of years ago, mixed with atoms that formed only recently as ultrafast rays slammed into Earth's atmosphere. All of that is not just remote history but part of us now: our human body is inseparable from nature all around us and intertwined with the history of the universe.

The people profiled in this book tell how you can create a positive life when you no longer can work, shop, attend church and public events or socialize without unpleasant, or worse, consequences to your health from low-level chemical exposures. Living with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity is a collection of personal stories describing the lives and coping strategies of people with MCS from all over North America. It describes dozens of alternatives to the kinds of isolation and hopelessness that threaten people with this illness. Laced with inspiration, courage and humor, these stories dispel myths associated with people who have MCS, and will help others to articulate their own experience of the illness to family, friends, coworkers, and health care providers. Foreword by Pamela Reed Gibson of James Madison University. Appendices include a medical overview, resources for further information and support, and a sociologists' view of MCS by Steve Kroll-Smith, director of the Environmental Social Science Research Institute, University of New Orleans. Includes photographs of persons whose lives are described.

In this book, the authors describe the long journey from formless inanimate matter to man, explaining the nature and the logic of the physical-chemical processes involved. It stresses the limitations of reductionism analyses of these processes as complexity increases and novel properties emerge. And, in particular, the authors develop the idea that it was chemical change of the environment that allowed evolution of life to occur and that this evolution required successive addition of new message systems and information codes connected, compatible, and cooperative with previous extant systems. In doing so, the authors analyze the relationship between chemical element content and speciation both in inanimate and living systems in terms of fundamental units and variables or composite (derived) units and variables. Through such analysis, the authors conclude that chemical speciation is very much a matter of chemical cooperation (order versus disorder) while biological speciation requires cooperative flow of chemicals and energy (organization versus disorder). They argue that chance mutations of DNA are far too simple to provide a basis for evolution and biological diversity, though it is a representation of such diversity. It is the survival strength of systems of molecular machinery which separate and generate living species. In the final chapter, they analyze the effect of man's activities on the present global and local ecosystems and speculate on the possible nature of the emergent properties to be expected from an ever-increasing complexity of information based modern societies.

If you have ever wondered how we get from the awesome impersonality of the Big Bang universe to the point where living creatures can start to form, and evolve into beings like you, your friends and your family, wonder no more. Steve Miller provides us with a tour through the chemical evolution of the universe, from the formation of the first molecules all the way to the chemicals required for life to evolve. Using a simple Hydrogen molecule – known as H-three-plus - as a guide, he takes us on a journey that starts with the birth of the first stars, and how, in dying, they pour their hearts out into enriching the universe in which we live. Our molecular guide makes its first appearance at the source of the Chemical Cosmos, at a time when only three elements and a total of 11 molecules existed. From those simple beginnings, H-three-plus guides us down river on the violent currents of exploding stars, through the streams of the Interstellar Medium, and into the delta where new stars and planets form. We are finally left on the shores of the sea of life. Along the way, we meet the key characters who have shaped our understanding of the chemistry of the universe, such as Cambridge physicist J.J. Thomson and the Chicago chemist Takeshi Oka. And we are given an insider’s view of just how astronomers, making use of telescopes and Earth-orbiting satellites, have put together our modern view of the Chemical Cosmos.

Rapid progress has been made in the discipline of biochemical engineering and biotechnology for bioprocess development during the last 50 years. Process Biotechnology: theory and practice has been written with the consideration that tutorial practice is as important as understanding the subject theoretically. This book is an introductory tutorial book involving multidisciplinary principles. Principal innovations that have been made in biosystem-related developments have been emphasized through tutorials in this book. The first few chapters cover theoretical aspects of biochemical and chemical engineering concerns in biotechnological advances in a concise manner. The rest have been dedicated to the tutorial aspects of this multidisciplinary subject. This book covers biological, ecological, chemical, and biochemical engineering topics related to the subject. It provides much needed theory-based solved numerical problems for practice in quantitative evaluation of various parameters relevant to process biotechnology. It will be useful for students who would like to further their careers as biotechnologists and can be used as a self-study text for practicing engineers, biotechnologists, microbiologists, and scientists involved in bioprocessing research and other related fields.
