Selected Readings in Chemical Kinetics covers excerpts from 12 papers in the field of general and gas-phase kinetics. The book discusses papers on the laws of connexion between the conditions of a chemical change and its amount; on the reaction velocity of the inversion of the cane sugar by acids; and the calculation in absolute measure of velocity constants and equilibrium constants in gaseous systems. The text then tackles papers on simple gas reactions; on the absolute rate of reactions in condensed phases; on the radiation theory of chemical action; and on the theory of unimolecular reactions. Papers on the theories of unimolecular reactions at low pressures; on the reaction between hydrogen and bromine; and on the oxidation of phosphorus vapor at low pressures are also considered. The book further describes papers on the thermal decomposition of organic compounds from the standpoint of free radicals; as well as on a single chain mechanism for the thermal decomposition of hydrocarbons. The book will be invaluable to students of chemical kinetics.
