• Les réactions péricycliques constituent un volet majeur de la chimie organique, y compris des réactions de synthèse aussi importantes sur le plan commercial que la réaction de Diels-Alder. De telles réactions sont caractérisées par leur stéréochimie prévisible et leurs structures de transition cycliques.

    Cet ouvrage de référence passe en revue ces réactions, en expliquant leur principe théorique à l'aide de diagrammes de corrélation et en montrant aux étudiants comment reconnaître les différents types de réactions péricycliques, leurs mécanismes et leurs applications à la synthèse organique.

  • Winner of the PROSE Award for Chemistry & Physics 2010 Acknowledging the very best in professional and scholarly publishing, the annual PROSE Awards recognise publishers' and authors' commitment to pioneering works of research and for contributing to the conception, production, and design of landmark works in their fields. Judged by peer publishers, librarians, and medical professionals, Wiley are pleased to congratulate Professor Ian Fleming, winner of the PROSE Award in Chemistry and Physics for Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions. Molecular orbital theory is used by chemists to describe the arrangement of electrons in chemical structures. It is also a theory capable of giving some insight into the forces involved in the making and breaking of chemical bonds-the chemical reactions that are often the focus of an organic chemist's interest. Organic chemists with a serious interest in understanding and explaining their work usually express their ideas in molecular orbital terms, so much so that it is now an essential component of every organic chemist's skills to have some acquaintance with molecular orbital theory. Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions is both a simplified account of molecular orbital theory and a review of its applications in organic chemistry; it provides a basic introduction to the subject and a wealth of illustrative examples. In this book molecular orbital theory is presented in a much simplified, and entirely non-mathematical language, accessible to every organic chemist, whether student or research worker, whether mathematically competent or not. Topics covered include: Molecular Orbital Theory Molecular Orbitals and the Structures of Organic Molecules Chemical Reactions - How Far and How Fast Ionic Reactions - Reactivity Ionic Reactions - Stereochemistry Pericyclic Reactions Radical Reactions Photochemical Reactions This expanded Reference Edition of Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions takes the content and the same non-mathematical approach of the Student Edition, and adds extensive extra subject coverage, detail and over 1500 references. The additional material adds a deeper understanding of the models used, and includes a broader range of applications and case studies. Providing a complete in-depth reference for a more advanced audience, this edition will find a place on the bookshelves of researchers and advanced students of organic, physical organic and computational chemistry. The student edition of Molecular Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions presents molecular orbital theory in a simplified form, and offers an invaluable first textbook on this important subject for students of organic, physical organic and computational chemistry. Further information can be viewed here. "These books are the result of years of work, which began as an attempt to write a second edition of my 1976 book Frontier Orbitals and Organic Chemical Reactions. I wanted to give a rather more thorough introduction to molecular orbitals, while maintaining my focus on the organic chemist who did not want a mathematical account, but still wanted to understand organic chemistry at a physical level. I'm delighted to win this prize, and hope a new generation of chemists will benefit from these books."
    -Professor Ian Fleming

  • Les débuts littéraires de l'agent 007 de Ian Fleming sont adaptés ici en BD par Van Jensen et Denis Calero dans un véritable roman graphique qui respecte l'ambiance de Casino Royale. Envoyé vers le casino français de Royale-les-Eaux, Bond a pour objectif d'éliminer la menace du meurtrier baptisé « Le Chiffre » en provoquant la faillite de l'impitoyable agent du SMERSH à la table de baccara.

  • When caring for the well or ill child, recognising and responding to their anatomical and physiological differences is essential. Fundamentals of Childrens Anatomy and Physiology provides child nursing students and registered nurses with a succinct but complete overview of the structure and function of the childs body, plus clinical applications throughout to demonstrate how the concepts relate to real-life nursing.  Each chapter lists learning outcomes and includes clinical considerations, body maps, a range of high-quality illustrations and test-your-knowledge questions.  The book is also accompanied by a companion website with further self-assessment and quizzes.

  • Disorders of the Hand describes the techniques for diagnosis applicable to the various disorders of the hand and how evidence based findings influence clinical practice. Treatment options including surgery are discussed in detail and clinical pearls are given in every chapter. Swelling, tumours, congenital hand defects and surgical techniques are comprehensively covered in this third of four volumes, while hand injuries, nerve compression, hand reconstruction, inflammation, arthritis and contractures are included in the book's three sister volumes.

  • Fundamentals of Children's Applied Pathophysiology introduces nursing and healthcare students to the pathophysiology of the child, and offers an applied full-colour visual approach throughout. Explaining the anatomy of the human body, and the effects of disease or illness on normal physiology, it enables the reader to develop the understanding, knowledge, and skills required to know how to respond and provide safe and effective high-quality care to children and their families. Key features: Written by an experienced author team Filled with superb full-colour illustrations Packed with learning features, including key words, test-your-knowledge, exercises, further reading, and learning outcomes Includes case studies to help readers understand how to apply the knowledge in clinical practice Contains links to clinical observations, vital signs to look out for, investigations boxes, red flags to indicate essential information to be aware of when providing care, and medication alerts Fundamentals of Children's Applied Pathophysiology is an ideal book for pre-registration nursing students, including child and adult nurses, as well as for all healthcare professionals who come into contact with children and their families.
