Catalyst Deactivation 1994 was an expansion of earlier, highly successful symposia. The objective of the symposium was to promote a scientific approach of the phenomenon of catalyst deactivation which will contribute to the development of catalysts which are less subject to structural transformations and more resistant to poisons and coke formation. These aspects are dealt with in 12 plenary lectures, 48 oral presentations and 35 poster papers, which were critically selected from an impressive response from some 30 countries. Both fundamental and applied aspects were covered. The deactivation of catalysts in important industrial processes like fluid bed catalytic cracking hydrotreatment, hydrodesulfurization, catalytic reforming, hydrodenitrogenation, steam reforming, hydrodemetallization, hydrocracking, Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, propane dehydrogenation, phthalic anhydride synthesis received considerable attention. Mechanisms of poisoning, sintering and coking were further investigated and modelled and new experimental techniques for the characterization and the quantification of deactivation were also introduced.
Each year, this annual gives readers an in-depth and up-to-date account of India’s external and internal threats in a deteriorating global security environment. It shows that while partnerships with some countries have strengthened, anxieties persist with others such as China and Pakistan. Similarly, India has not been able to cope with the challenges of internal security emerging from violence in Kashmir, insurgency in the northeast, to mention a few. A unique series with contributions from academics, political commentators and military personnel.
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is a procedure that uses a machine to take over the work of the lungs and sometimes the heart. The system provides heart-lung bypass support using a pump to circulate blood through an artificial lung back into the bloodstream, providing enough oxygen to the patient, whilst allowing time for the lungs and heart to rest or heal during or after serious illness. ECMO is often used for babies, but can also be used for children and adults (Medline Plus). The techniques for ECMO require professionals from multidisciplinary background to be involved in the procedure. This practical manual is a comprehensive guide to ECMO. Divided into eleven sections, the b...

The second edition of Clinical Surgery Pearls is a question and answer book for postgraduate and undergraduate students. Each chapter focuses on a typical case, beginning with an overview, followed by a checklist for history and physical examination, and diagnostic points for that case. A number of questions with answers reviewing the anatomy, physiology, investigation, differential diagnosis and updated staging and evidence-based management for that case, are then presented. The book is highlighted by numerous flow charts, tables, photographs and illustrations. A separate chapter provides definitions for various clinical terminologies. Key points New edition, question and answer book for students Presents 50 clinical cases with questions and answers Easy to read, understandable format Includes numerous flow charts, tables, photographs and illustrations Separate chapter dedicated to definitions of clinical terminologies Previous edition published in 2010
