Synopsis:
Compiles information on 300 volatile constituents contributing to the smell of green coffee and 850 contributing to the flavor of roasted coffee. The constituents are listed according to their function, such as alcohols, esters, furans and pyrans, and pyrazines. The entries summarize each compound’s structure, nomenclature, discoverer, qualitative and/or quantitative data, formation mechanisms, synthesis, and organoleptic properties. Introductory chapters discuss the non- volatile constituents of green coffee as precursors to the flavor of roasted coffee, transformation during the roasting process, and the history of coffee aroma research.

Synopsis:
Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter on a near-atomic scale to produce new structures, materials, and devices. This technology has the ability to transform many industries and will have numerous applications to areas ranging from medicine to manufacturing. Research in nanoscale technologies is growing rapidly world-wide. By 2015, the National Science Foundation estimates that nanotechnology will have a $1 trillion impact on the global economy and employ 2 million workers, 1 million of which may be in the United States. Nanomaterials may present new challenges to understanding, predicting, and managing potential health risks to workers. [As taken from book cover]
