Advances in High Temperature Chemistry, Volume 4 reviews and evaluates some techniques in high temperature chemistry.
This book first discusses infrared and ultraviolet spectroscopy of free radicals and molecular ions. It then turns to atomic carbon reactions and gas-solid surface reactions. It also presents several techniques for studying liquids and solids at extreme temperatures. Researchers and high temperature chemists will find this book invaluable.
