Macromolecules in Solution and Brownian Relativity Book Review:

Macromolecules in Solution and Brownian Relativity illustrates the recent picture of statistical physics of polymers and polymer solutions that emerges from some paradigms of contemporary science joint together. Among its principal aims are discussing the consequences of a novel self-diffusion theory, which benefits from an extension towards relativistic-like principles, and the generalization of usual concepts met in polymer science in terms of geometry alone. The monograph gives the whole fundamentals necessary to handle the view proposed, which is set in the final chapters. All the formers see about to provide the reader with a comprehensive treatation of the necessary fundamentals of classical, relativistic, quantum and statistical mechanics. Among the most important mechanical theories ever developed, a chapter on the Brownian movement and another on macromolecules prepare the ground that is specific to face universality and scaling behaviors in polymer solutions. The scope of the book is therefore two-fold: On the one hand, it wishes to involve the readers and scholars into a new research on polymer physics and chemistry. On the other, to get close chemical physicists and physical chemists to disciplines which, traditionally, are far from their direct fields of interest. Cross-disciplinarity Novelty Potentiality

Physicochemical Approaches to the Characterization of Pharmaceutical Systems Book Review:

Chemical physics and thermodynamics cover a role of the outermost importance in the study of many pharmaceutical-based disciplines, especially whenever a thorough understanding of the involved chemical reactions or materials processing becomes highly desirable. In this line, the present book aims at providing any reader or worker in these fields with a consistent experimental data analysis, carried out exhaustively by a number of theoretical models and discussed in any necessary detail. In comparison with the existing texts, ours will include more practical aspects, with examples of calculus taken from or inspired to the modern literature. It will also tackle the most advanced chemical estimation methods employed in pharmaceutical sciences, taking care of communicating as best as possible a modern way of looking at the arguments involved. In this respect, observe that the ongoing bibliography on open questions which were formerly neglected is now continuously growing. The chapters developing the mathematical modeling will be organized so as to explain and quantify the physical and chemical frames of the complex systems met by pure and applied researchers in their daily activity. The theoretical sections, in particular, will take care of any method assuring an efficient coding for the employed procedures (as those relying on macroscopic or statistical thermodynamics) and of describing the experimental tests for the scrutinized molecular systems. As an example, any equation of state must be able to provide, in addition with density, enthalpy, fugacity coefficients and phase equilibrium conditions, with every (partial) thermodynamic derivative with respect to temperature, pressure and any quantity assigning the mixture composition. We will also emphasize the physical chemistry characterization of the active compounds, and concentrate on their crystal, amorphous and polymorphic forms, as well as on the roles played by their states of matter. An appropriate monographic section will thus be devoted to the application of X-ray diffraction to non-structural issues, like atomic and molecular vibrations, order-disorder transitions, theories of the defect solid state, crystal imperfections, and to structural problems such as the so-called "crystallite size" approaches (see, for instance, Scherrer’s and Warren-Averbach’s, sometimes hardly applicable with the necessary accuracy). At that point, we will try to argue whether the current thermal experiments, normally employed to check the assumptions coming from solid state physics and thermochemistry, may (or may not) introduce some novelty or original prospect within the modern arena of pharmaceutical sciences. A chapter on solubility and precipitation kinetics, particularly on how to exploit and modify their variables in a number of relevant cases, will then be presented. In another one, we will approach the most advanced methods which can estimate (the macroscopic) chemical features from theoretical and numerical tools, avoiding in this way the expenses connected with usual laboratory routes. The plenty of techniques illustrated in the literature, unfortunately, are often unable to return satisfactory estimations of properties associated with complex molecular geometries. Our intention in this respect will be supplying several guidelines bringing to better evaluations of some, at least, among the most important drug, polymer and biopolymer characteristics. A final step, now more related to molecular topology, chemical graph theories and several issues of "group contributions" in physical chemistry, will be inquiring on the relationship between the (atomic/molecular) shape of organic compounds and their larger-scale (thermodynamic) features. This is a long-standing problem of physics and chemistry that, on considering the number of open questions in this matter, could find here the room for new insights, statements and formal approaches.

Brownian Motion Book Review:

This textbook is an introduction to the Brownian motion of colloids and nano-particles, and the diffusion of molecules. One very appealing aspect of Brownian motion, as this book illustrates, is that the subject connects a broad variety of topics, including thermal physics, hydrodynamics, reaction kinetics, fluctuation phenomena, statistical thermodynamics, osmosis and colloid science. The book is based on a set of lecture notes that the authors used for an undergraduate course at the University of Utrecht, Netherland. It aims to provide more than a simplified qualitative description of the subject, without getting bogged down in difficult mathematics. Each chapter contains exercises, ranging from straightforward ones to more involved problems, addressing instances from (thermal motion in) chemistry, physics and life sciences. Exercises also deal with derivations or calculations that are skipped in the main text. The book offers a treatment of Brownian motion on a level appropriate for bachelor/undergraduate students of physics, chemistry, soft matter and the life sciences. PhD students attending courses and doing research in colloid science or soft matter will also benefit from this book.

Colloids and the Depletion Interaction Book Review:

Colloids are submicron particles that are ubiquitous in nature (milk, clay, blood) and industrial products (paints, drilling fluids, food). In recent decades it has become clear that adding depletants such as polymers or small colloids to colloidal dispersions allows one to tune the interactions between the colloids and in this way control the stability, structure and rheological properties of colloidal dispersions. This book offers a concise introduction to the fundamentals of depletion effects and their influence on the phase behavior of colloidal dispersions. Throughout the book, conceptual explanations are accompanied by experimental and computer simulation results. From the review by Kurt Binder: "They have succeeded in writing a monograph that is a very well balanced compromise between a very pedagogic introduction, suitable for students and other newcomers, and reviews of the advanced research trends in the field. Thus each chapter contains many and up to date references, but in the initial sections of the chapters, there are suggested exercises which will help the interested reader to recapitulate the main points of the treatment and to deepen his understanding of the subject. Only elementary knowledge of statistical thermodynamics is needed as a background for understanding the derivations presented in this book; thus this text is suitable also for advanced teaching purposes, useful of courses which deal with the physics for soft condensed matter. There does not yet exist any other book with a similar scope..... The readability of this book is furthermore enhanced by a list of symbols, and index of keywords, and last not least by a large number of figures, including many pedagogic sketches which were specifically prepared for this book. Thus, this book promises to be very useful for students and related applied sciences alike." Eur. Phys. J. E (2015) 38: 73

Molecular Theory of Solutions Book Review:

This book presents new and updated developments in the molecular theory of mixtures and solutions. It is based on the theory of Kirkwood and Buff which was published more than fifty years ago. This theory has been dormant for almost two decades. It has recently become a very powerful and general tool to analyze, study and understand any type of mixtures from the molecular, or the microscopic point of view. The traditional approach to mixture has been, for many years, based on the study of excess thermodynamic quantities. This provides a kind of global information on the system. The new approach provides information on the local properties of the same system. Thus, the new approach supplements and enriches our information on mixtures and solutions.

Time Resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy in Biochemistry and Biology Book Review:

At the time that the editors conceived the idea of trying to organize the meeting on which the contents of this volume are based and which became, in March 1980, a NATO Advanced Study Institute, the techniques of time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy, in both the nanosecond and sub-nanosecond time-domains, might reasonably have been said to be coming of age, both in their execution and in the analysis and interpretation of the results obtained. These techniques, then as now, comprised mainly a number of pulse methods using laser, flash-lamp or, most recently, synchrotron radiation. In addition, significant developments in the more classical phase approach had also rendered that method popular, utilizing either modulation of an otherwise continuous source or, again recently, the ultra-rapid pulse rate attainable with a synchrotron source. In general terms, time-resolved fluorescence studies are capable, under appropriate conditions, of supplying direct kinetic information on both photophysics and various aspects of molecular, macromolecular and supramolecular structure and dynamics. The nanosecond and sub-nanosecond time-scales directly probed render these techniques particularly appropriate in studying relaxation and fluctuation processes in macromolecules, particularly biopolymers (e. g. proteins, nucleic acids), in supramolecular assemblies such as cell membranes, and in a variety of relatively simpler model systems.
