This collection features books and book contributions written by faculty in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Fairfield University.
Tanya Gupta, Robert E. Belford, and Aaron R. Van Dyke
Aaron R. Van Dyke is a contributing author, "Practical Considerations for Advancing Undergraduate Digital Literacy through Digital Laboratory Notebooks," Chapter 7: p. 107-118.
Digital laboratory notebooks (DLNs), alternatively termed electronic laboratory notebooks, are valuable for cultivating digital literacy and enhancing laboratory productivity. However, selecting and implementing a DLN can be difficult. This book chapter outlines four factors to consider when selecting a DLN: cost, platform compatibility, user collaboration, and data compliance. Next, it discusses the implementation of Quip (a productivity app) as a DLN at Fairfield University, a primarily undergraduate institution. Through applications in organic chemistry, biochemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, and chemical instrumentation laboratories, the reader will gain practical knowledge of Quip’s interface, data management architecture, content creation tools, and instructor’s features. The chapter concludes by considering the legacy of accessing data within Quip and student perceptions of the DLN at Fairfield University.
Amanda S. Harper-Leatherman, Ling Huang, and Linda Roney
In addition to being an editor, Amanda S. Harper-Leatherman is a contributing author with Linda N. Roney, "Interdisciplinary Learning Activity Incorporating Forensic Science and Forensic Nursing," Chapter 8, pp. 137-153.
Jianping Wu, Catherine J. Andersen, and Aaron R. Van Dyke
C. J. Andersen and A. R. Van Dyke are contributing authors, "Modulation of Inflammation by Egg Components," Chapter 10: p. 173-197.
Often described as ‘nature’s perfect food’, perceptions of egg consumption and human health have evolved substantially over the past decades, in particular dietary guidelines no longer include a limit for dietary cholesterol and recommend eggs as part of healthy eating patterns. This book presents the opportunities for processing eggs to produce value-added food, nutritional, biomedical, functional food, and nutraceutical applications. It provides new evidence around egg consumption with respect to cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, weight management, mental development, eye, muscle, and ageing health. It also highlights the new discovery regarding egg bioactives that are relevant to anti-oxidants, anti-inflammation, cardiovascular and bone health, anti-microbial and anti-viral activities.
Appealing to food scientists, food chemists, researchers in human nutrition specialising in eggs and dairy nutrition, and those involved in egg production, this book is reflecting the trends and innovations in this area of research.
Shelley D. Minteer, Amanda S. Harper-Leatherman, Jean M. Wallace, and Debra R. Rolison
Amanda Harper-Leatherman, with Jean M. Wallace and Debra R. Rolison, is a contributing author: "Cytochrome c stabilization and immobilization in aerogels," pp. 193-205.
Book description: In Enzyme Stabilization and Immobilization: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers explore the latest developments through detailed laboratory protocols, which address many different theories and techniques in enzyme stabilization. Chapters outline protocols for enzyme stabilization in solutions, including: liposome formation, micelle introduction, crosslinking, and additives. Secondly, the book contain protocols for enzyme stabilization via enzyme immobilization, such as sol-gel encapsulation, polymer encapsulation, and single enzyme nanoparticle formation. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Leo A. Paquette, David Crich, Philip Fuchs, Gary Molander, Aaron R. Van Dyke, and T. F. Jamison
Aaron Van Dyke (with T.F. Jamison) is a contributing author, ""[(1S,2S,5R)-5-Methyl-2-(1-methylethyl)cyclohexyl] diphenylphosphine".
At last, the long anticipated second edition of the highly successful Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis (EROS) is publishing in print in March 2009. With its wealth of valuable information, excellent editorial leadership and methodical classification, EROS has become the authoritative reference source on reagents and catalysts.
This makes EROS vital reading for everybody working in organic synthesis. It has wide appeal, with relevance not only to Organic Chemists, but also to Inorganic, Physical and Analytical Chemists, Materials Scientists, Chemical Engineers, Biochemists, Medicinal and Pharmaceutical Chemists and Pharmacologists. In short, it is an essential product for all academic and industrial chemistry laboratories and libraries.
