2.5 Structure-property relationships

Given the large number of possible configurations in polymers, what guides to likely properties are available? We have already seen some of the effects on properties of changing tacticity, for example, which can affect crystallinity. Control of copolymer structure, too, can have substantial effects on their thermal properties.

Anti-System Politics in Europe: the crisis of market liberalism in rich democracies [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Jonathan Hopkin | At this year’s Annual Lecture, which marks the 10th anniversary of LEQS and follows just days after this year’s European parliamentary elections, Jonathan Hopkin will discuss the recent ruptures in the politics of the rich democracies, signalled by electoral instability across Europe, as well as dramatic events like the election of Donald Trump to the US Presidency and the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union. Dr Hopkin argues that these tumult

12.480 Thermodynamics for Geoscientists (MIT)
In this course, principles of thermodynamics are used to infer the physical conditions of formation and modification of igneous and metamorphic rocks. The course includes phase equilibria of homogeneous and heterogeneous systems and thermodynamic modeling of non-ideal crystalline solutions. It also surveys the processes that lead to the formation of metamorphic and igneous rocks in the major tectonic environments in the Earth's crust and mantle.

and silver mining interests. Free silver advocate William Jennings
Bryan became the Democratic presidential candidate of 1896, delivering

5 Conclusion

Social work and law are both contested concepts, open to a range of possible meanings, depending on their context and the source of their definition. An understanding of these competing meanings is essential to good professional practice and provides a foundation for examining the relationship between social work and the law which is central to this course. The relationship between social work and the law is subject to change, as the organisation and delivery of social care services attempts

4.2 The science behind Golden Rice

Modifying crops to produce the Bt toxin (Section 3.1) was, in some ways, relatively simple. The toxin is a single protein and can therefore be produced as a result of the insertion of a single gene into the plant's genome. Similarly, introducing herbicide tolerance (Section 3.2) typically involves modifying the action of a single enzyme, and therefore modification again involves the insertion of a single gene.

β-carotene is not a protein. It is a hydrocarbon, i.e. a compound containing
