Description

An important challenge brought to chemical engineering by new emerging technologies, in particular then by nano and bio technologies, is to deal with complex systems that cannot be dealt with and cannot be fully understood on a single scale. This volume provides a framework for thermodynamic and kinetic modeling of complex chemical systems.
