Diarrhoea and Malnutrition in Childhood is derived from a conference of pediatric gastroenterologists from around the world, held in London at the Royal Commonwealth Society and St. Bartholomew's Hospital on November 5-7, 1984. They collaborate to create a source that would educate people from developed and developing communities regarding the topic. The book first tackles the connections between diarrhea and malnutrition, and then provides a model that further explains the relationship. The authors suggest that poverty is the main cause of the two abnormal conditions, and they refer to books and studies of the topic by respected figures in the industry. Bacteria that cause the two diseases and the diseases' variations are also covered. Other topics discussed in the book are parasites in the intestine schemes on how to improve nutrition importance of breast-feeding and role that the parts of the human body play during illness. This book will serve as a valuable reference for doctors, researchers, and even casual readers..
CAD International Directory 1986 is part of a series of directories of products and suppliers in the field of computer-aided design (CAD). It aims to be an invaluable buyer's guide and a useful all-year-round reference book that tells users who sells what in their field of interest and where to contact them. The directory begins with four chapters that survey the current state of the CAD field and discuss developments in CAD and computer-aided engineering (CAE) factors to consider in workstation selection and future developments in the CAD environment. The remainder of the book contains the directory of CAD products and services, which is divided into eight sections. All entries in every section but Section 1 are listed and indexed in alphabetical order of supplier. The software section is listed in alphabetical order of program name and is indexed by both supplier and program name. The suppliers' names, addresses, telephone and telex numbers are listed at the end of the directory..
The Organic Chemistry of Museum Objects provides an account of the composition, chemistry, and analysis of the organic materials which enter into the structures of objects in museum collections. This book is not intended to duplicate the information available in existing handbooks on the materials and techniques of art and conservation but rather to convey the state of knowledge of the chemical composition of such materials and so provide a framework for a general understanding of their properties. The book begins with a review of basic organic chemistry, covering hydrocarbons and compounds with functional groups. It then describes spectrometry and separation methods. This is followed by discussions of the chemistry and composition of oils and fats, natural waxes, bituminous materials, carbohydrates, proteins, and natural resins and lacquers. Subsequent chapters deal with synthetic materials, i.e., high molecular weight polymers of a wholly synthetic nature and natural and synthetic dyestuffs. Also discussed are the deterioration and other changes in organic materials resulting from both free radical and ionic reactions and the application of analytical methods to identify the organic materials of actual museum objects. This book is intended for both chemists and nonchemists..
