Series: Advances in Chemistry Research
BISAC: SCI013000

This volume includes eight chapters that detail recent advances in chemistry research. Chapter One focuses on the kinetic-energy/information probes of chemical processes. Chapter Two reviews the chemistry and application of acrylamide and polyacrylamide as well as associated health risks. Chapter Three discusses inter- and intra-molecular force processes and absorption/luminescence energies in inorganic supramolecular systems in complexes and clusters based on gold. Chapter Four provides various applications, significant advancements, and future opportunities of the Chemical Reactor Network method. Chapter Five includes an overview of nanocellulose and discusses various factors that affect its surface morphology. Chapter Six presents a chemical product design methodology applied to complex fluids such as Pickering emulsions. Chapter Seven summarizes recent developments for H2O2-based green oxidation reactions using different transition metal salt catalysts. Finally, Chapter Eight provides a green perspective on the use of Oxone in organic synthesis.
