determination of synthetic antioxidants. Chapter Two provides an overview on the activity of essential oils with defined chemical composition, tested against cholinesterases and identifies the ones that could be potentially used in Alzheimer’s treatment. Chapter Three describes a simple, cost-effective and ecofriendly approach for the fabrication of different metal nanoparticles (MNPs) including silver, gold, iron, zinc and palladium by using different plant phytochemicals as potential reducers and stabilizers. Chapter Four studies ionic liquid-promoted synthesis of phosphinates and biphosphonic acid derivatives. Chapter Five focuses on low molecular mass reactive acrylamide copolymers as carriers of biologically active compounds. Chapter Six discusses the phenomenon of mass concentration periodicity in amorphous matter. Chapter Seven studies the use of furan derivatives acting as electrophilic dienophiles. Chapter Eight examines the use of surfactants in the chemical treatment of crude case oriental zone in Venezuela for asphaltene mitigation. (Imprint: Nova)
