NEW TITLE FOR CHEMICAL & BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

Chemical engineering : a comprehensive approach
By Lakhi, Kripal S.
TP155.L192, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:
A Comprehensive Approach will overcome the difficulties experienced by field operators who want to enhance their basic theoretical knowledge of various unit operations and process equipments and panel operators and fresh chemical engineering graduates who want to revise and revisit various fundamental chemical engineering concepts. This book will also be useful for those who wish to prepare for various competitive exams such as GATE. [As taken from Amazon]

Organic chemistry

Title: Organic chemistry, 8th ed.
Author: Wade, L. G.
Call number: QD251.3.W119 2013
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
Acclaimed for its clarity and precision, Wade’s Organic Chemistry maintains scientific rigor while engaging students at all levels. Wade presents a logical, systematic approach to understanding the principles of organic reactivity and the mechanisms of organic reactions. This approach helps students develop the problem-solving strategies and the scientific intuition they will apply throughout the course and in their future scientific work.

The Eighth Edition provides enhanced and proven features in every chapter, including new Chapter Goals, Essential Problem-Solving Skills and Hints that encourage both majors and non-majors to think critically and avoid taking “short cuts” to solve problems. Mechanism Boxes and Key Mechanism Boxes strengthen student understanding of Organic Chemistry as a whole while contemporary applications reinforce the relevance of this science to the real world.

New Title for Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Title: Biomarkers in drug development : a handbook of practice, application, and strategy
Editor: Michael R. Bleavins
Call number: R853.B54B615M
Availability: Click here

Summary:
Contributors from huge drug companies, small drug companies, and a few academic departments examine biomarkers and their role in drug development, technology approaches to identifying new biomarkers, characterization and validation, biomarkers in discovery and preclinical safety, translating from preclinical results to clinical and back, biomarkers in clinical trials, practical aspects of biomarker implementation, and where they are headed and what they need. The specific topics include enabling go/no-go decisions, quantitative multiplexed patterning of immune-related biomarkers, molecular biomarkers from a diagnostic perspective, new markers of kidney injury, predicting and assessing an inflammatory disease and its complications as exemplified by rheumatoid arthritis, integrating molecular testing into clinical applications, opportunities and risks of biomarker patent strategies, and redefining disease and pharmaceutical targets through molecular definitions and personalized medicine.

New Title for Bioengineering

Title: Basics of biomedical ultrasound for engineers
Editor: Haim Azhari
Call number: R857.U48A994
Availability: Click here

Summary:
In this introduction to biomedical ultrasound, undergraduate and gradate engineering students, academic and research engineers, and physicians and researchers in biomedical disciplines will find common applications of biomedical ultrasound explained from an engineering point of view. Early chapters give a general description of waves and cover waves in a one-dimensional medium, ultrasonic waves in fluids, and propagation of acoustic waves in solid materials. Later chapters cover attenuation and dispersion, reflection and transmission, acoustic lenses and mirrors, and transducers and acoustic fields. Application chapters describe uses of ultrasonic imaging such as the pulse-echo technique, Doppler imaging techniques, and safety and therapeutic ultrasound applications. [As taken from book cover]
