Integrated Chemical Processes in Liquid Multiphase Systems
From Chemical Reaction to Process Design and Operation
This book summarizes the results obtained over twelve years in the DFG-funded collaborative project Transregio 63 “Integrated Chemical Processes in Liquid Multiphase Systems”. In an interdisciplinary approach to the design and operation of chemical processes, essential principles of Green Chemistry are realized, such as using long-chain olefins as model representatives of renewable raw materials, highly efficient catalysts, and green solvents, linked with process optimization to improve energy and material efficiency.
In this large project, usage of renewable feedstock and waste streams as raw materials to substitute feedstock from fossil source was investigated. Experts from different fields addressed all steps of the development process, from the description of the reactions on the molecular level via thermodynamics and the design of efficient separation processes to the operation of chemical plant s for liquid multiphase production processes.
Engineers and chemists from the chemical industry as well as advanced students and researchers will get valuable insights into the physico-chemical phenomena in chemical multiphase processes and benefit from advances concerning methods for the selection of phase systems and rapid model-based process development.
Realization and Model Reduction of Dynamical Systems
A Festschrift in Honor of the 70th Birthday of Thanos Antoulas
Prof. Antoulas is renowned for his fundamental research contributions. This Festschrift is being published for a conference to celebrate Antoulas's 70th birthday. Model reduction is a timely and important area with many scientific and engineering applications.
This book celebrates Professor Thanos Antoulas's 70th birthday, marking his fundamental contributions to systems and control theory, especially model reduction and, more recently, data-driven modeling and system identification. Model reduction is a prominent research topic with wide ranging scientific and engineering applications.
Light-Powered Reactivation of Flagella and Contraction of Microtubule Networks: Toward Building an Artificial Cell
About the Cover: Integration of light-switchable functionalized vesicles with demembranated flagella. Upon illumination, Bacteriorhodopsin pumps a proton into the vesicle's interior, establishing a proton motive force that drives ATP synthase to catalyze the conversion of ADP to ATP. ATP is consumed by dynein molecular motors, generating active forces for flagellar beating.
