Dear Colleagues, Family and Friends,
There is a huge discussion ever-increasing in the world concerning global warming and climate change. A big international conference on climate takes place in Paris starting next month. I think there are a lot of questions in the minds of many citizens as to what this is really all about. We have a full spectrum of opinion from those predicting an imminent apocalypse to deniers like Senator Inhofe bringing a snowball into the senate chamber to prove that global warming is a hoax.
I have written a small (60 pages) book for the average person who might want some easy-to-understand information to sort through the blizzard of chatter on the subject. It will be available in bookstores mid-November, 2015 or directly from me now. You may also download the e-book version at: https://www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore/book.php?w=9781682070642
I don't like to refer to it as "Climate Change for Dummies" - since that's an insult to the intelligence of the average citizen. My main motivation in doing this is simply to get the facts out in an easily intelligible format. So I'd greatly appreciate any efforts you can make to help spread the word!
Best regards, Bob

Two books on Polymer Colloids and their Bioomedical Applications published in honor of our colleague
Prof. Christian Pichot:
Fine Particles, Synthesis, Characterization and Mechanisms of Growth
Tadao Sugimoto, Tohoku University, Editor
Marcel Dekker, New York 824 pp., illus., 2000. ISBN: 0-8247-0001-5
This book "Ranges from fundamental principles to the most advanced concepts, highlighting monodispersed particles from nm to mm in size. Describes mechanisms of formation and specific characteristics of each family of compounds while identifying problems and proposing solutions."
Please note that our own dr. Prof. Haruma Kawaguchi has written the chapter on "Polymer Latices" and part of the chapter on "Particles Modified in Surface Properties."
Polymer Colloids, A Comprehensive Introduction
Academic Press, London (1997); 346 pages, illustrated. ISBN 0-12-257745-0; 84.00 pounds
From the preface: "This text is an attempt to introduce the beginner to the field with a solid development of the fundamentals, without getting involved in details to the point where the overall picture is lost.
"Generally speaking this text deals with subject matter that cannot be found in similar books elsewhere. The author assumes that the reader has a working knowledge of basic polymer science..........or can acquire the background on his own. The same would be true for colloid science.........
"There is a certain magic to this field which has appealed to chemists, physicists, engineers and formulators.......uniformity in particle size can be achieved in many cases almost effortlessly. This in turn leads to beautiful optical phenomena...........and for modelling molecular processes, to clinical diagnostics, cell separation and chemotherapy."

"Emulsion Polymerization and Emulsion Polymers"
Peter A. Lovell and Mohamed S. El-Aasser, editors
Wiley, New York, 1997; pp 801; ISBN 0 471 96746 7
Provides an up-to-date treatment of both academic and industrial aspects of the subject in a single self-contained volume. Established knowledge is integrated with latest developments and introductory chapters to give a state-of-the-art summary which is also suitable as a broad based introduction to the filed. The individual chapters have been written by specialists from academia and industry and are presented in away which ensures that the book will be of equal value to experienced researchers and students. The book contains 23 Chapters, and is divided into five sections: Basic Science, Theory, Practice, Major Industrial Uses, and Related Heterogeneous Polymerization.
by Per Rangnes
The book includes a biography of Professor John Ugelstad (75) and a presentation of his fundamantal studies in emulsion polymerization. It also describes the process leading to the invention of monodisperse particles and magnetic particles and the long way from scientific invention to commercial products.
Today, magnetic and non-magnetic particles are being utilized in an array of applications, for example in medical research and therapy. A number of leading international scientists have been interviewed to portray one of Norway's greatest explorers into the world of chemical research.
