This volume is based on different aspects of chemical technology that are associated with research and the development of theories for chemical engineers, helping to bridge the gap between classical analysis and modern, real-life applications. The book provides practical insights into many areas of chemical engineering.

This book introduces the current state-of-the-art technology in key materials with an emphasis on the rapidly growing technologies. It takes a unique approach by presenting specific materials, then progresses into a discussion of the ways in which these novel materials and processes are integrated into today’s functioning manufacturing industry.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the authors present the current state-of-the-art technology in key materials with an emphasis on the rapidly growing technologies. The volume presents new research on an array of new developments and techniques that will be valuable for chemists and chemical engineers.

Topics include:

  • The Use of Animals Models of Inflammation and Pain in Biomedical Research
  • ZnO Nanostructure/Polymer Dielectric Films for Electronic and Optoelectronic Device Applications
  • Experimental Studies of Fire Extinguishing Micro and Nano Aerosols
  • Genetic Algorithms and Their Applications in Different Areas of Engineering and Science

He has received several awards, including an Academician A. F. Sidorov Prize from the Ural Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences for significant contribution to the creation of the theoretical fundamentals of physical processes taking place in multi-level nanosystems and Honorable Scientist of the Udmurt Republic. He is currently a member of editorial board of several journals, including Computational Continuum Mechanics, Chemical Physics and Mesoscopia, and Nanobuild. His research interests include multiscale mathematical modeling of physical-chemical processes into the nano-hetero systems at nano-, micro- and macro-levels; static and dynamic interaction of nanoelements; and basic laws relating the structure and macro characteristics of nano-hetero structures.

Reza Haghi, PhD
Research Assistant, Institute of Petroleum Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Reza Haghi, PhD, is a research assistant at the Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom. Dr. Haghi has published several papers in international peer-reviewed scientific journals and has published several papers in conference proceedings, technical reports, and lecture notes. Dr. Haghi is expert in the development and application of spectroscopy techniques for monitoring hydrate and corrosion risks and developed techniques for early detection of gas hydrate risks. He conducted integrated experimental modeling in his studies and extended his research to monitoring system to pH and risk of corrosion. During his PhD work at Heriot-Watt University, he has developed various novel flow assurance techniques based on spectroscopy as well as designed and operated test equipment. He received his MSc in Advanced Control Systems from the University of Salford, Manchester, England, United Kingdom.

J. V. de Julián-Ortiz, PhD
Assistant Lecturer, Physical Chemistry, University of Valencia, Burjassot, Spain

J. V. de Julián-Ortiz, PhD, was a postdoctoral scholarship holder at the Institute of Computational Chemistry of the University of Girona, Spain, at the Molecular Engineering group directed by Prof. Ramon Carbó-Dorca. He worked as a researcher of the Network of Research Centers of Tropical Diseases, Faculty of Pharmacy-University of Valencia, Spain. He worked in the design and molecular dynamics of structure-directing agents for the synthesis of zeotype materials at the Institute of Chemical Technology—Spanish Scientific Council (CSIC)—Polytechnic University of Valencia at the group of Prof. Avelino Corma. From 2010 to 2015 he was part-time professor at the University of Valencia and project technician at several private foundations, co-financed by a grant from the Spanish Ministry of Innovation. He has also been founder of MOLware SL and Scientific Director in ProtoQSAR SL.
