Progress in Reaction Kinetics discusses the main themes of chemical kinetics. It covers such topics as the reactions of halogen atoms and methylenes, mercury photosensitized reactions, anionic polymerization, cis trans-isomerisation, and protolytic reactions. The book provides a good illustration of the quantitative rate studies in biochemical systems. The experiments to determine the relative rate constants are shown and analyzed. The process of photosensitization involves absorption of light energy by a strongly absorbing substance. The methods to identify the reactions of carbonyl compounds, organic acids and esters are presented as well as the reactions of alcohols, ethers, and epoxides. The degree of reaction of some haem compounds is explained. A chapter of the book focuses on the kinetic treatment of processes that takes place in a series of steps. Such procedures are called consecutive processes. A sample of these is the rate-determining step approximation. The book will provide useful information to chemists, chemical engineers, students, and researchers.
