Ingredients The Strange Chemistry of Plants, Poisons and Processed Foods

Ingredients The Strange Chemistry of Plants, Poisons and Processed Foods

Author: George Zaidan Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/07/2020

Cheese puffs. Coffee. Sunscreen. Vapes. George Zaidan reveals what will kill you, what won't, and why-explained with high-octane hilarity, hysterical hijinks, and other things that don't begin with the letter H. INGREDIENTS offers the perspective of a chemist on the stuff we eat, drink, inhale, and smear on ourselves. Apart from the burning question of whether you should eat that Cheeto, Zaidan explores a range of topics. Here's a helpful guide: Stuff in this book: - How bad is processed food? How sure are we? - Is sunscreen safe? Should you use it? - Is coffee good or bad for you? - What's your disease horoscope? - What is that public pool smell made of? - What happens when you overdose on fentanyl in the sun? - What do cassava plants and Soviet spies have in common? - When will you die? Stuff in other books: - Your carbon footprint - Food sustainability - GMOs - CEO pay - Science funding - Politics - Football - Baseball - Any kind of ball really Zaidan, an MIT-trained chemist who cohosted CNBC's hit Make Me a Millionaire Inventor and wrote and voiced several TED-Ed viral videos, makes chemistry more fun than Hogwarts as he reveals exactly what science can (and can't) tell us about the packaged ingredients sold to us every day. Sugar, spinach, formaldehyde, cyanide, the ingredients of life and death, and how we know if something is good or bad for us-as well as the genius of aphids and their butts-are all discussed in exquisite detail at breakneck speed.

Benzothiazole Preparation, Structure and Uses

Author: Atakan Heijstek Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/06/2020

Benzothiazole is an aromatic heterocyclic compound with the chemical formula of C7H5NS. Benzothiazole: Preparation, Structure and Uses opens with a review on the synthesis of benzothiazoles for their anticancer, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, anticonvulsant, anti-inflammatory, anthelmintic, analgesic, antiviral and antitubercular activities. Following this, considering the versatile nature of benzothiazole, various benzothiazole derivatives with anticonvulsant and anticancer activity are discussed in detail. A report on the design strategies, detailed photo-physical properties and applications of benzothiazoles is provided in an effort to help researchers overcome existing challenges in designing novel excited state intramolecular proton transfer benzothiazole fluorescent molecules. In closing, the authors present recent updates on the usefulness and structure-activity relationship of benzothiazole derivatives for the development of novel anticancer agents.
