This volume is the fourth in a series of annual reviews on progress in the research and technology, both basic and applied, of chemical sensors. New principles, new devices, and the detailed mechanism of various chemical sensors are described. Chemical sensors continue to grow rapidly in importance encompassing a broad spectrum of technologies covering safety, pollution, fuel economy, medical engineering and industrial processes. More than half the papers in this volume are relevant to biosensing, a strategic field for medical and health care equipment, especially in geriatric medicine. Frequent health checks at home will be increasingly necessary as the proportion of the aged in the population steadily grows. In some cases health conditions will have to be monitored constantly to give warnings or provide emergency assistance at the right time. Because biochemical substances play major roles in physiological processes such as metabolism, excitation and contraction of skeletal muscle and neurotransmission, chemical sensing of the related biochemical substances will eventually become indispensable. Each chapter is written by an expert active in the front lines of chemical sensor research. Not only is the technological essence of the subject provided, but also the background and philosophy, an evaluation of achievements to date and problems to be dealt with. Each topic is described in sufficient depth to be useful to researchers worldwide.

Chemical sensors are integral to the automation of myriad industrial processes and everyday monitoring of such activities as public safety, engine performance, medical therapeutics, and many more. This 4 volume reference work covering simulation and modeling will serve as the perfect complement to Momentum Press's 6 volume reference works 'Chemical Sensors: Fundamentals of Sensing Materials' and 'Chemical Sensors: Comprehensive Sensor Technologies', which present detailed information related to materials, technologies, construction and application of various devices for chemical sensing. This 4 volume comprehensive reference work analyzes approaches used for computer simulation and modeling in various fields of chemical sensing and discusses various phenomena important for chemical sensing such as bulk and surface diffusion, adsorption, surface reactions, sintering, conductivity, mass transport, interphase interactions, etc. In this work it will be shown that theoretical modeling and simulation of the processes, being a basic for chemical sensors operation, could provide considerable progress in choosing both optimal materials and optimal configurations of sensing elements for using in chemical sensors. Each simulation and modeling volume in the present series reviews modeling principles and approaches peculiar to specific groups of materials and devices applied for chemical sensing. Volume 2: Conductometric-Type Sensors covers phenomenological modeling and computational design of conductometric chemical sensors based on nanostructured materials such as metal oxides, carbon nanotubes and graphene. This volume contains an overview of the approaches used to quantitatively evaluate characteristics of sensitive structures in which electric charge transport depends on the interaction between the surfaces of the structures and chemical compounds in the surrounding.

Neuropathology of Drug Addictions and Substance Misuse, Volume 2: Stimulants, Club and Dissociative Drugs, Hallucinogens, Steroids, Inhalants and International Aspects is the second of three volumes in this informative series and offers a comprehensive examination of the adverse consequences of the most common drugs of abuse. Each volume serves to update the reader’s knowledge on the broader field of addiction as well as to deepen understanding of specific addictive substances. Volume 2 addresses stimulants, club and dissociative drugs, hallucinogens, and inhalants and solvents. Each section provides data on the general, molecular and cellular, and structural and functional neurological aspects of a given substance, with a focus on the adverse consequences of addictions. Research shows that the neuropathological features of one addiction are often applicable to those of others, and understanding these commonalties provides a platform for studying specific addictions in more depth and may ultimately lead researchers toward new modes of understanding, causation, prevention, and treatment. However, marshalling data on the complex relationships between addictions is difficult due to the myriad material and substances. Offers a modern approach to understanding the pathology of substances of abuse, offering an evidence-based ethos for understanding the neurology of addictions Fills an existing gap in the literature by serving as a “one-stop-shopping synopsis of everything to do with the neuropathology of drugs of addiction and substance misuse Includes in each chapter: list of abbreviations, abstract, introduction, applications to other addictions and substance misuse, mini-dictionary of terms, summary points, 6+ figures and tables, and full references Offers coverage of preclinical, clinical, and population studies, from the cell to whole organs, and from the genome to whole body

The American Chemical Society Symposium book African Natural Plant Products was originally conceived as a vehicle to present scientific discoveries, challenges, and to create a dialogue focused on African natural products, an area still very underexplored as a vehicle to benefit the African people. And yet, scientists realized early on the remarkable diversity and range of African plants and products being used for a wide variety of applications (foods, flavorings, medicine, nutrition and health). This series is to provide a scientific stimulus for greater research, enhanced collaboration, and confirmation and/or validation on the uses and importance of African natural plant products, particularly those steeped in a rich traditional history. The Volume II "Discoveries and Challenges in Chemistry, Health and Nutrition" is a new installment of an international effort to provide a communication platform for scientists to share their interest in African plants and products. The book seeks to promote the identification of new uses and applications that can contribute to the development of the African continent, as the value of plant uses emerges from the interaction of the rich biodiversity of the African ecosystems with societies and cultures. The focus will expand to include health and nutritional considerations in addition to the core natural product chemistry and continue to present new findings.
