A Complete Guide to Magnesia-From Mining to End Use Often relegated to footnote status in texts, magnesia is nevertheless a valuable substance widely used in applications ranging from wastewater treatment to catalysis. The Chemistry and Technology of Magnesia fills the long-standing gap in the literature with a comprehensive, one-stop reference to "all things magnesia." The book brings together the many strands of information on magnesium compounds, their production, testing and evaluation, technology, applications, and markets. Opening with an introductory history of the chemical, it covers the life cycle of magnesia, natural and synthetic production, and uses in different fields including the environmental, health, and agricultural industries. Readers will find the section on health and safety issues particularly relevant. Chapters include: * The History of Magnesia * Synthetic Magnesia * Pulp Applications * Environmental Applications * Magnesia Cements * Furnaces and Kilns * Post Calcination Processing * Other Magnesia Products * Mining and Processing Magnesite * The Physical and Chemical Properties of Magnesium Oxide * Water and Wastewater Application for Magnesia Products * Magnesia in Polymer Applications * The Role of Magnesium in Animal, Plants, and Human Nutrition * Magnesium Salts and Magnesium Metal * The Formation and Occurrence of Magnesite * Calcination of Magnesium Hydroxide and Carbonate * Miscellaneous Magnesia Applications

The complete control system engineering solution for continuous and batch manufacturing plants. This book presents a complete methodology of control system design for continuous and batch manufacturing in such diverse areas as pulp and paper, petrochemical, chemical, food, pharmaceutical, and biochemical production. Geared to practicing engineers faced with designing increasingly more sophisticated control systems in response to present-day economic and regulatory pressures, Plantwide Process Control focuses on the engineering portion of a plant automation improvement project. It features a full control design information package (Control Requirements Definition or CRD), and guides readers through all steps of the automation process-from the initial concept to design, simulation, testing, implementation, and operation. This unique and practical resource: * Integrates continuous, batch, and discrete control techniques. * Shows how to use the methodology with any automation project-existing or new, simple or complex, large or small. * Relates recent ISO and ISA standards to the discipline of control engineering. * Illustrates the methodology with a pulp-and-paper mill case study. * Incorporates numerous other examples, from single-loop controllers to multivariable controllers.

Principles of Sugar Technology focuses on the principles, methodologies, and processes involved in sugar technology, including properties of sugar and agents involved in its manufacture. The selection first offers information on the chemical and physical properties of sucrose, as well as decomposition, structure of the sucrose molecule, sucrose derivatives, crystallized and amorphous sucrose, and solvents. The book then takes a look at the physical and chemical properties of reducing sugars and non-nitrogenous organic acids of sugarcane. The publication ponders on nitrogen-containing nonsugars (amino acids and proteins), complex organic nonsugars of high molecular weight, and lipids of sugarcane. Discussions focus on the distribution of nitrogen in sugarcane, amino acids in cane juice and leaves, lignin, pectin, proteins, and significance of waxy and fatty lipids in sugar manufacture. The text also examines color and colored nonsugars, inorganic nonsugars, and agents used in sugar manufacture. The selection is a dependable reference for readers interested in sugar technology.

The first seven metals in the periodic table are lithium, beryllium, sodium, magnesium, aluminium, potassium and calcium, known collectively as the “lightest metals”. The growing uses of these seven elements are enmeshing them ever more firmly into critical areas of 21st century technology, including energy storage, catalysis, and various applications of nanoscience. This volume provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals and recent advances in the science and technology of the lightest metals. Opening chapters of the book describe major physical and chemical properties of the metals, their occurrence and issues of long-term availability. The book goes on to disucss a broad range of chemical features, including low oxidation state chemistry, organometallics, metal-centered NMR spectroscopy, and cation-π interactions. Current and emerging applications of the metals are presented, including lithium-ion battery technology, hydrogen storage chemistry, superconductor materials, transparent ceramics, nano-enhanced catalysis, and research into photosynthesis and photoelectrochemical cells. The content from this book will be added online to the Encyclopedia of Inorganic and Bioinorganic Chemistry: http://www.wileyonlinelibrary.com/ref/eibc

A hands-on book which begins by setting the context;- defining 'fermentation' and the possible uses of fermenters, and setting the scope for the book. It then proceeds in a methodical manner to cover the equipment for research scale fermentation labs, the different types of fermenters available, their uses and modes of operation. Once the lab is equipped, the issues of fermentation media, preservation strains and strain improvement strategies are documented, along with the use of mathematical modelling as a method for prediction and control. Broader questions such as scale-up and scale down, process monitoring and data logging and acquisition are discussed before separate chapters on animal cell culture systems and plant cell culture systems. The final chapter documents the way forward for fermenters and how they can be used for non-manufacturing purposes. A glossary of terms at the back of the book (along with a subject index) will prove invaluable for quick reference.Edited by academic consultants who have years of experience in fermentation technology, each chapter is authored by experts from both industry and academia. Industry authors come from GSK (UK), DSM (Netherlands), Eli Lilly (USA) and Broadley James (UK-USA).
