Chemical Reactions in Solvents and Melts discusses the use of organic and inorganic compounds as well as of melts as solvents. This book examines the applications in organic and inorganic chemistry as well as in electrochemistry. Organized into two parts encompassing 15 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the general properties and the different types of reactions, including acid–base reactions, complex formation reactions, and oxidation–reduction reactions. This text then describes the properties of inert and active solvents. Other chapters consider the proton transfer reactions in polar solvents as well as the transfer of other ions. This book discusses as well the solubility in a number of solvents by the formation of different bonds between the solute and the solvent molecule. The final chapter deals with the general characteristics of the oxidation–reduction reactions of melts. This book is a valuable resource for chemists, students, and researchers.
