About the Author

This text discusses the synthesis, characterization, and application of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for the purpose of adsorbing gases. It provides details on the fundamentals of thermodynamics, mass transfer, and diffusion that are commonly required when evaluating MOF materials for gas separation and storage applications and includes a discussion of molecular simulation tools needed to examine gas adsorption in MOFs. Additionally, the work presents techniques that can be used to characterize MOFs after gas adsorption has occurred and provides guidance on the water stability of these materials. Lastly, applications of MOFs are considered with a discussion of how to measure the gas storage capacity of MOFs, a discussion of how to screen MOFs to for filtration applications, and a discussion of the use of MOFs to perform industrial separations, such as olefin/paraffin separations. Throughout the work, fundamental information, such as a discussion on the calculation of MOF surface area and description of adsorption phenomena in packed-beds, is balanced with a discussion of the results from research literature.

This is by far my favorite love story. Beautifully written with a wonderful lesson (and a healthy dash of drama) and absolutely gorgeous!!! I also love the color scheme of this book. Though at first I was slightly confused by the red "gilding" on the pages I quickly got the congruity with Dracula. Although I won't give away the story line, I would recommend anyone read this book especially who need an example of a good love story to throw back at crazed Twilight fans. (Just to clarify, not knocking the Twilight series AT ALL, I just think that how rabid the fans are is hilarious.)

I just got this today. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books (I bought it on my nook) and so I wanted to find a high quality, attractive paper copy of it. I ordered this one and I absolutely love it! It is great quality, gorgeous, and old-fashioned looking. I can't wait to get more of the books from this classics series.

Jane Eyre is an amazing story, which everyone must read (also, be sure to check out Charlotte's sister, Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, another fantastic read.) Even if you were required to read it in high school, read it again. It's very good, and one of my favourite stories; which might explain why when I found out B&N came out with new leatherbound books and saw their selections, I squealed in excitement. The edition is very good and is worthy of s place in your permanent library. If you have some of the older Leatherbound Classics, be forewarned that these new ones are not the same size (but they still work with the collection! So still buy it!) If I were to describe these new ones in some other way, it would be like a collection within a collection. All the new editions go together, with being of the same size and having different but similar covers. I'd probably suggest getting Wuthering Heights as a companion piece, but as I said before, it's not totslly necessary since these new books go just as well with the old ones, despite some of their differences.

I read this in high school and remembered loving it, so now 6 years later or so I picked it up to re-read it and see if it still struck a chord with me. I love this book still, and devoured it in only a few days. Jane is such a well defined, interesting, amazing lead character, and leads the way for Charlotte Bronte's other characters to be equally well defined and enjoyed. The story line is dreamy, fantastic and toes the line of fairy tale and believable. I understand why this is recommended reading in so many classes, and why so many film makers try (and usually, fail) to create a visual version of Jane Eyre. It's a classic that has stood, and will continue to stand, the tests of time. Highly recommended to all.

The Brontë sisters seem to have shared a fascination with the theme of abused and unwanted wards. In Jane Eyre, it¿s the title character that receives the poor treatment at the hands of her aunt and cousins. However, unlike Heathcliff in Emily Brontë¿s Wuthering Heights, Jane uses her internal strength, intellect and personal integrity to persevere.I found Charlotte¿s writing to be smoother and less rigid than Emily¿s so I enjoyed Jane Eyre more than Wuthering Heights. The story details Jane¿s coming of age, freeing herself from the grasp of her family, and beginning a new life. She falls in love, rejects that love, is offered a comfortable but unloving marriage but rejects that proposal. Ultimately, her decisions prove to have been well thought as she ultimately marries the man she loves. The course of the book is best summarized by a passage towards the end of the novel: ¿To have yielded [then] would have been an error of principle; to have yielded now would have been an error in judgement.¿ Through the book, Jane¿s adherence to her principles and application of good judgement lead to her happiness.There were some subtle elements of gothic literature employed in Jane Eyre. Jane is a dark, brooding and introspective character. There¿s an insane captive locked in the attic, several murder attempts, multiple references to physical ugliness and deformity and burned remains of a mansion. However, this novel is first-and-foremost about relationships. It forces the reader to examine what¿s really important in deciding the best ¿match¿ for each of us and encourages standing by our principles in not settling for anything other than the best.

I've always wanted to actually read the book, after seeing the movie with Mia Wasikowska, who is amazing! No movie as ever moved me so, and now that I have the book, it makes it even better!

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is a love story that appeals to all audiences. The protagonist, Jane, is orphaned at a young age and sent to live with her Aunt Reed, who scorns her. At the tender age of 10, Jane is sent to an all girls’ boarding school and from there, begins her education which eventually lands her a job as a governess for the eccentric Edward Rochester. She begins to fall in love with the dark, cold, and abrupt master of the house. Rochester, however, has a secret that threatens to tear them apart. Jane Eyre can be considered to be a feminist. Unlike the other women during the Victorian Era, Jane is outspoken and independent. While she suffers through the plot’s twists and turns, she is never portrayed as a “damsel in distress” or otherwise weak; she is self-reliant. Jane does, however, fall in love with Edward Rochester. At the beginning of his character introduction, readers are able to see him as a mysterious man. He is superior to Jane in the sense that he has money and a higher social standing, and yet it is undeniable that Jane has a superior moral character. This is clearly seen when readers discover the secret Rochester is trying so desperately to hide. In contrast, St. John can be considered Rochester’s foil. Where Rochester is impulsive and unpredictable, St. John is austere and ambitious. Jane often associates him with rock, ice, and snow. Jane Eyre, written in the typically flow-y Victorian language, is a book that many readers will be able to relate to. Although the situations may not be representative of what a person today might deal with, the emotions that Jane experiences are ones that everyone feels and connect to.
