Possessing great potential power for gathering and managing data in chemistry, biology, and other sciences, Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods are prompting increased exploration into the most effective areas for implementation. A comprehensive resource documenting the current state-of-the-science and future directions of the field is required to furnish the working experimental scientist and newcomer alike with the background necessary to utilize these methods. In response to the growing interest in the potential scientific applications of AI, Using Artificial Intelligence in Chemistry and Biology explains in a lucid, straightforward manner how these methods are used by scientists and what can be accomplished with them. Designed for those with no prior knowledge of AI, computer science, or programming, this book efficiently and quickly takes you to the point at which meaningful scientific applications can be investigated. The approach throughout is practical and direct, employing figures and illustrations to add clarity and humor to the topics at hand. Unique in scope, addressing the needs of scientists across a range of disciplines, this book provides both a broad overview and a detailed introduction to each of the techniques discussed. Chapters include an introduction to artificial intelligence, artificial neural networks, self-organizing maps, growing cell structures, evolutionary algorithms, cellular automata, expert systems, fuzzy logic, learning classifier systems, and evolvable developmental systems. The book also comes with a CD containing a complete version of the EJS software with which most of the calculations were accomplished. Encouraging a broader application of AI methods, this seminal work gives software designers a clearer picture of how scientists use AI and how to address those needs, and provides chemists, biologists, physicists, and others with the tools to increase the speed and efficiency of their work.

A Practical Guide to Physical and Chemical Principles and Calculations for Today’s Process Control Operators In Basic Principles and Calculations in Process Technology, author T. David Griffith walks process technologists through the basic principles that govern their operations, helping them collaborate with chemical engineers to improve both safety and productivity. He shows process operators how to go beyond memorizing rules and formulas to understand the underlying science and physical laws, so they can accurately interpret anomalies and respond appropriately when exact rules or calculation methods don’t exist. Using simple algebra and non-technical analogies, Griffith explains each idea and technique without calculus. He introduces each topic by explaining why it matters to process technologists and offers numerous examples that show how key principles are applied and calculations are performed. For end-of-chapter problems, he provides the solutions in plain-English discussions of how and why they work. Chapter appendixes provide more advanced information for further exploration. Basic Principles and Calculations in Process Technology is an indispensable, practical resource for every process technologist who wants to know “what the numbers mean” so they can control their systems and processes more efficiently, safely, and reliably. T. David Griffith received his B.S. in chemical engineering from The University of Texas at Austin and his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, then top-ranked in the discipline. After working in research on enhanced oil recovery (EOR), he cofounded a small chemical company, and later in his career he developed a record-setting Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) software package. He currently instructs in the hydrocarbon processing industry. Coverage includes • Preparing to solve problems by carefully organizing them and establishing consistent sets of measures • Calculating areas and volumes, including complex objects and interpolation • Understanding Boyle’s Law, Charles’s Law, and the Ideal Gas Law • Predicting the behavior of gases under extreme conditions • Applying thermodynamic laws to calculate work and changes in gas enthalpy, and to recognize operational problems • Explaining phase equilibria for distillation and fractionalization • Estimating chemical reaction speed to optimize control • Balancing material or energy as they cross system boundaries • Using material balance calculations to confirm quality control and prevent major problems • Calculating energy balances and using them to troubleshoot poor throughput • Understanding fluid flow, including shear, viscosity, laminar and turbulent flows, vectors, and tensors • Characterizing the operation of devices that transport heat energy for heating or cooling • Analyzing mass transfer in separation processes for materials purification

Industry and academia remain fascinated with the diverse properties and applications of polymers. However, most introductory books on this enormous and important field do not stress practical problem solving or include recent advances, which are critical for the modern polymer scientist-to-be. Updating the popular first edition of "the polymer book for the new millennium," Introduction to Polymer Science and Chemistry: A Problem-Solving Approach, Second Edition seamlessly integrates exploration of the fundamentals of polymer science and polymer chemistry. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Chapter on living/controlled radical polymerization, using a unique problem-solving approach Chapter on polymer synthesis by "click" chemistry, using a unique problem-solving approach Relevant and practical work-out problems and case studies Examples of novel methods of synthesis of complex polymer molecules by exciting new techniques Figures and schematics of the novel synthetic pathways described in the new examples Author Manas Chanda takes an innovative problem-solving approach in which the text presents worked-out problems or questions with answers at every step of the development of a new theory or concept, ensuring a better grasp of the subject and scope for self study. Containing 286 text-embedded solved problems and 277 end-of-chapter home-study problems (fully answered separately in a Solutions Manual), the book provides a comprehensive understanding of the subject.

A Practical Tool for Learning New Methods Quality assurance and measurement uncertainty in analytical laboratories has become increasingly important. To meet increased scrutiny and keep up with new methods, practitioners very often have to rely on self-study. A practical textbook for students and a self-study tool for analytical laboratory employees, Quality Assurance and Quality Control in the Analytical Chemical Laboratory: A Practical Approach defines the tools used in QA/QC, especially the application of statistical tools during analytical data treatment. Unified Coverage of QA in Analytical Chemistry Clearly written and logically organized, this book delineates the concepts of practical QA/QC, taking a generic approach that can be applied to any field of analysis. Using an approach grounded in hands-on experience, the book begins with the theory behind quality control systems and then moves on to discuss examples of tools such as validation parameter measurements, the use of statistical tests, counting the margin of error, and estimating uncertainty. The authors draw on their experience in uncertainty estimation, traceability, reference materials, statistics, proficiency tests, and method validation to provide practical guidance on each step of the process. Extended Coverage of QC/QA in Analytical and Testing Laboratories Presenting guidance on all aspects of QA and measurement results, the book covers QC/QA in a more complex and extended manner than other books on this topic. This range of coverage supplies an integrated view on measures like the use of reference materials and method validation. With worked-out examples and Excel spreadsheets that users can use to try the concepts themselves, the book provides not only know-what but know-how.
