Metals play a vital role in the metabolism of plants and animals and, increasingly, in medicine. This book provides an introduction to the metals essential to life and ligands of biological importance. It considers the uptake of metals, their transport and ultimately their storage, illustrated in particular with the story of iron in the body. Contents --Foreword --The Royal Society --Acknowledgements --Acknowledgements for Illustrations --Chapter 1: Metals and the Origins of the Royal Society --Chapter 2: Metals and the Early Period of the Royal Society --Chapter 3: Chemistry, Metallurgy and Materials Processing --Chapter 4: Precious Metals --the Platinum Group --Chapter 5: Minting.   This informative book details the first such organization (going back to and continuously functioning ever since), the Royal Society. In pages, the author covers the Society, its founding, its program publications, its support for laboratories and experimentation, public education efforts, and its modern transition involving admission of women and linkage with foreign scientific societies/5(7). Book prizes; Flexi-Grant® That most elementary question 'what is a metal?' has generated a long and surprising history of answers, dating back to the landmark discovery in of the (then) new metals potassium and sodium; reported by Sir Humphry Davy in his Bakerian Lecture of that year. The Royal Society is a Fellowship of many of.

  The Royal Society has revealed the shortlist for the Royal Society Science Book Prize sponsored by Insight Investment, celebrating the very best in popular science writing from around the world for a non-specialist audience.. This year’s six shortlisted books, chosen from over submissions, ask readers to rethink the way they view both themselves and the world around them, . The Royal Society Science Books Prize is an annual £25, prize awarded by the Royal Society to celebrate outstanding popular science books from around the world. It is open to authors of science books written for a non-specialist audience, and since it was established in has championed writers such as Stephen Hawking, Jared Diamond, Stephen Jay Gould and Bill Bryson.

The Royal Society originated on Novem , when 12 men met after a lecture at Gresham College, London, by Christopher Wren (then professor of astronomy at the college) and resolved to set up “a Colledge for the promoting of Physico-Mathematicall Experimentall Learning.” Those present included the scientists Robert Boyle and Bishop John Wilkins and the courtiers Sir Robert Moray and.

The presence of pollutants in aqueous solution, particularly from hazardous heavy metals and metalloids, is an important environmental and social problem. Diversity in the Minerals, Metals, and Materials Professions (DMMM1), which offers insights into and highlights common themes across issues related to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. [11] Modeling Across Scales, a roadmapping study which offers practical guidance in for connecting materials models across length and time scales. Mixed-metal MOFs are metal–organic frameworks that contain at least 2 different metal ions as nodes of their frameworks. They are prepared relatively easily by either a one-pot synthesis with a synthesis mixture containing the different metals, or by a post-synthetic ion-exchange method by soaking a monometallic MOF in a concentrated solution of a different (but compatible) metal-ion. The Royal Society of Chemistry's interactive periodic table features history, alchemy, podcasts, videos, and data trends across the periodic table.
