    Biaxial Nematic Liquid Crystals: Theory, Simulation and Experiment

    Currently unavailable

    Hardback Save £15.54 = £104.46

    In the nematic liquid crystal phase, rod-shaped molecules move randomly but remain essentially parallel to one another. Biaxial nematics, which were first predicted in 1970 by Marvin Freiser, have their molecules differentially oriented along two axes.

    Coherent X-Ray Optics

    By David Paganin

    The Nature of the Hydrogen Bond: Outline of a Comprehensive Hydrogen Bond Theory

    By Paola Gilli

    Currently unavailable

    Paperback Save £11.54 = £23.46

    This book defines, for the first time, the rules for predicting H-bond energies and geometries from the properties of the interacting molecules. This new knowledge is used to investigate the molecular mechanisms in systems relevant to chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, crystallography, and material sciences.

    Computer Simulations of Dislocations

    By Wei Cai

    Symmetry in Crystallography: Understanding the International Tables

    By Paolo Radaelli

    Currently unavailable

    Hardback Save £18.54 = £33.96

    A fresh approach to teaching crystallographic symmetry. Rather than being swamped by heavy algebraic notation, the reader is taken through a series of simple and beautiful examples from the visual arts, and taught how to analyse them employing the 'pictorial' diagrams used in the International Tables of Crystallography.
