Hannah´s Golden Moment
8,91 € *

1804 Hannah accidentally meets Percy in the woods Twenty-nine years old, Amanda Blows, lived in a small two bedroom cottage in Tatham´s Fells, near Boston, Lancashire, with her two daughters. All the cottages were primitive in that they had no running water. No toilet or bathroom. Water was obtained from a single pump at the horse trough in the village square. Amanda´s eldest daughter Hannah was ten years old, and her youngest daughter Charlotte, six year old. The children´s father had long since taken off and not been heard from again. Life had been hard, but the same could be said for hundred´s of families who barely scraped a living. They worked long hours in the spinning factories, and the bleach works or in one of the titled gentry mansions. Caring for her two children had fallen to Amanda almost from the time the girls were babies. Fortunately, she had always been able to rely on her mother, Jean Blows, whom the children lovingly called Nanna. Amanda was still very attractive. Her eyes violet in color was brushed by long lashes. Her long blond hair was partly covered by a kerchief to help keep it from falling over her face as she leaned over the scrub board in the small scullery. These days, she always appeared to wear a troubled look on her face, but this did not subdue the brightness in her eyes as she pulled up the corner of her apron to wipe the perspiration from her forehead. After all, the children were happy even though they were very poor and daily barely able to make ends meet. The cottage, situated on a lane adjacent to a large wooded area, was owned by Lord Hauntmont as was almost all the property around that area. The Hauntmont family had owned the land at Tatham Fells for four generations. They also owned two of the largest cotton mills. The nearest neighbor to the Hauntmont estate was Wilfred Ainsworth of Smithhill Hall.

Nachricht von ruhigen Momenten

Im goldenen Herbst des Jahres 2012 stand »Die Welt« für einen Tag still, und als Sinnbild des Stillstands lag dort ein schläfriger Hund, wo sonst die Schlagzeilen drohen. Was war geschehen? Gerhard Richter, einer der global maßgeblichen Künstler, hatte die Herrschaft ergriffen und allen 30 Seiten der »Welt«-Ausgabe vom 5. Oktober 2012 seinen Handstempel aufgedrückt: Bilder von ruhigen Momenten in unruhigen Zeiten, Aufhebung des politischen Primats, Privates statt Welthistorisches, vor allem aber: kunstvolle Kontraste zwischen Schärfe und Unschärfe. Bei der öffentlichen Vorstellung dieser ungewöhnlichen Kunstaktion hielt Alexander Kluge die Laudatio. Spontan begleitete er die Fotos mit Geschichten. Gerhard Richter antwortete darauf ebenso spontan mit dem Vorschlag eines gemeinsamen Buches. Richter lieferte weitere Bilder und Kluge weitere Geschichten. So entstand nach dem Erfolgsbuch »Dezember« eine zweite gemeinsame Arbeit der beiden im Februar 1932 geborenen Künstler: ein Buch zur zeitgleich durchlebten Geschichte, so scharf wie unscharf gesehen.

Modern Gold Catalyzed Synthesis
142,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With its impressive features, gold has led to completely new reaction types in recent years, which in turn have strongly influenced both organic catalysis and material science. Other fields where a significant amount of new results has been obtained include nanotechnology, self assembly/supramolecular systems and biochemical/medicinal chemistry. As a result, gold is one of the hottest topics in catalysis at the moment, with an increasing amount of research being carried out in this field. While focusing on homogeneous catalysis, this monograph also covers the main applications in heterogeneous catalysis. Following a look at the gold-catalyzed addition of heteroatom nucleophiles to alkynes, it goes on to discuss gold-catalyzed additions to allenes and alkenes, gold-catalyzed benzannulations, cycloisomerization and rearrangement reactions, as well as oxidation and reduction reactions. The whole is finished off with a section on gold-catalyzed aldol and related reactions and the application of gold-catalyzed reactions to natural product synthesis. Of interest to synthetic chemists and inorganic chemists, as well as organic chemists working in homogeneous catalysis, physical and technical chemists.
