Chemical Kinetics: From Molecular Structure to Chemical Reactivity, Second Edition, is written for both the specialist in the field and upper undergraduate and graduate-level chemistry students. It bridges the gap between the two with a path that leads the reader from phenomenological approach, to rates of chemical reactions, and then to the state-of-the-art calculation of the rate constants of the most prevalent reactions. Sections cover atom transfers, catalysis, proton transfers, substitution reactions, energy transfers and electron transfers. In the process, the reader is presented with the details of collision and transition state theories.
Guided by the explanation of how molecular structures change with time, the book provides the basics: the simplest concepts, the fundamental experiments, and the underlying theories. For the seasoned specialist, it presents sophisticated experimental and theoretical methods, offering a panorama of time-dependent molecular phenomena connected by a new rational.
- Features two new chapters on Fractals, Chaos and Oscillatory Reactions and Pharmacokinetics, with all first edition chapters revised<
- Includes practical examples, detailed theoretical calculations, and cross-relations between reactions throughout the text to underscore key concepts
- Provides a state-of-the-art presentation on the kinetics of reactions implicated in the most active research fields
Physical chemists comprise the primary audience (both young researchers and seasoned specialists in kinetics). Students at the upper undergraduate and graduate levels enrolled in related courses
