Reviews

@qu:The principle objective of this book is to stimulate research that will extend available theory towards a greater understanding of solid-state decompositions and the properties of solids that control reactivities. It could also provide a useful starting point for the exploitation of crystalline materials in practical and industrial applications. @source:La Doc Sti @qu:The authors have provided a comprehensive and balanced account of the thermal decomposition of solids. The first part deals with theory and background with some emphasis on reaction mechanisms. Part 2 covers thermal decompositions of selected ionic solids. It is a most impressive book which brings together some of the best concepts from the early development of the subject and the most recent advances. @source:Aslib Book Guide
