Apple Academic Press is pleased to announce that Dr. Anthony Granville will be editing a new 5-volume book series on Nanochemistry and Technology in Science and Engineering. Dr. Granville invites contributions.

Each volume will begin with a brief discussion of the fundamentals of nanochemistry and technology as related to the subject matter for the specific volume. This will then tie directly into the research submissions for each of the subject volumes:
• biomedical science and engineering
• optoelectronics and sensor applications
• inorganic compounds and hybrid materials
• graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes, and nanodiamonds
• surface modifications and interactions

These volumes will also suggest areas for future research avenues and directions in each field, bringing together the fundamentals of science and the applications of engineering to the field. The book series hopes to both elucidate the area of nanochemistry and technology as well as consolidate the research into focus areas, being of interest to educators and researchers alike. This series will aim to amalgamate chemistry and engineering together to give an equal importance to the science and the applications of the technology and how the two are interlinked—form and function dictating each other. Furthermore, by highlighting recent research into each of the delegated areas, the series can showcase researchers and their work, as well as be a springboard into subseries for each area if the interest level is significant.

CALL FOR CHAPTERS on
Advances in Inorganic Chemistry


The editors of forthcoming volume titled Advances in Inorganic Chemistry are pleased to invite you and your colleagues to submit a chapter for this book volume, to be published by Apple Academic Press, USA.

The objective of this book is to offer academia/engineers/technologists/users from different disciplines information to gain knowledge on the breadth and depth of this multifaceted field. The field of inorganic chemistry is very broad and diverse. At the present time, areas as diverse as nanomaterials, metals in biological systems, compounds with interesting and useful magnetic and spectroscopic properties, precursors for electronic materials, and others all fall within the designation of inorganic chemistry. In fact, our everyday life could not be thought of without large contributions from inorganic chemistry. Most catalysts utilized in organic chemistry are metal-based, as are the conducting, semi-conducting, and insulating materials upon which the electronics industry relies heavily. Life on earth would not be possible were it not for the metals in biological systems, such as iron in hemoglobin, which has a pivotal role in oxygen transport, and the metal ions at the center of enzymes, which help regulate several biological processes. There is an urgent need to explore and investigate the current shortcomings and challenges of the current innovations and challenges. This book volume, in short, will explore and convey the key concepts on Inorganic chemistry.

For this new book volume, we welcome chapters on following topics:
• chemical bonding theories in inorganic chemistry
• periodic table
• atoms and atomic theories
• acid-base chemistry
• solid state chemistry
• organometalic chemistry
• synthesis of inorganic molecules and inorganic reaction mechanisms
• coordination complexes and coordination chemisty
• the applications in inorganic chemistry of chemical reactivity indices based on dft.
• oxidation and reduction reactions (redox)
• molecular geometry and molecular symmetry
• and many new topics

There is no fee for inclusion of a chapter. Author(s) interested in this theme may submit a short proposal (include title, authors’ names and contact information, summary, keywords) of the chapter by email to nazmul.islam786@gmail.com or savaskaya1989@gmail.com before 30th April 2016. The deadline for manuscript submission is the 30th June 2016. Authors who cannot meet this deadline of submission of full chapter can indicate the proposed date of submission for consideration. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT COPYRIGHTED ARTICLES that have been published unless you have reprint permission from the original publisher. We are against plagiarism. OPEN SOURCE articles can be evaluated.
