The Melting Diagram of Protein Solutions and Its Thermodynamic Interpretation
A novel method for the characterization of the hydration of protein solutions based on measuring and evaluating two-component wide-line 1H NMR signals, which enables a quantitative description of the ratio of ordered and disordered parts of proteins, and of the energy relations of protein–water bonds in aqueous solutions of the proteins.

The Formation of a Dry‐Belt in the North Side of Central Himalaya Mountains
South Asian monsoon crosses the Himalayan Mountains (HMs) and brings moisture for precipitations in the South Tibetan Plateau. A distinct dry‐belt was found in the north of the central HM region,
Effect of Room Temperature Variations on ELISA Results
This study was designed to investigate the effect of room temperature variations on ELISA results. Sixty serum samples were collected from healthy and patients persons, distributed as three groups; 1
Energy transport model with full band structure for GaAs electronic devices
Electronic band structure is incorporated into a versatile energy transport model that treats heat flow between mobile electron ensembles with the thermodynamic identity for ideal gases instead of an
Entropy budget of the ocean system
An entropy balance equation including the transfers of heat and mass, work of external force of the ocean is presented and discussed. Entropy flux through the sea surface are calculated, and the
Flying high, thinking low? What every aeronaut needs to know
The news report of a balloonist floating far above his intended altitude (in a lawnchair!) provides motivation for exploring the behavior of ideal gases and their implications for the thermodynamic
Understanding and designing metal matrix nanocomposites with high electrical conductivity: a review
Metal matrix nanocomposites (MMNCs) are gaining more and more interest because matrices and nanophases with heterogeneous characteristics could combine to provide unprecedented properties. Given the
Approaches for a Closer Look at Problems of Liquid Membranes with Amyloid-Beta Peptides
This chapter attempts to examine the effects modulated by the presence of Aβ peptides, and more importantly to determine the modes of interaction between membranes and peptides.
