Describing chemical and physical transformations of matter at the molecular level, this book comprehensively considers fundamental theory and experimental techniques. It also covers such new topics as real-time analysis and reactions in solutions and interfaces. The addition of problem sets makes the book suitable to those studying chemical reaction dynamics, as well as a supplementary text to physical chemistry and natural science courses.Read more
- An in-depth account of reaction dynamics at the molecular level, described with a broad interest in mind
- Discusses research and progress in key and emerging interdisciplinary areas alongside core chemistry, to include fields such as materials science and drug design
- Includes problem sets at the end of each chapter to aid and test understanding
Reviews & endorsements
"Extremely well written, the definitive work in the field, and it provides a wonderful overview of current understanding of how chemical reactions occur, including insights into what still remains to be done. Essential." CHOICE
