Title Chemical kinetics and reaction dynamics / Paul L. Houston
Published Mineola, New York : Dover Publications, 2006


Description 1 online resource (670 pages) : illustrations
Summary "This text teaches the principles underlying modern chemical kinetics in a clear, direct fashion, using several examples to enhance basic understanding. It features solutions to selected problems, with separate sections and appendices that cover more technical applications. Each chapter is self-contained and features an introduction that identifies its basic goals, their significance, and a general plan for their achievement. This text's important aims are to demonstrate that the basic kinetic principles are essential to the solution of modern chemical problems, and to show how the underlying question — 'How do chemical reactions occur?' — leads to exciting, vibrant fields of modern research. The first aim is achieved by using relevant examples in presenting the basic material, and the second is attained by inclusion of chapters on surface processes, photochemistry, and reaction dynamics."--Provided by publisher
Notes "This Dover edition, first published in 2006, is an unabridged republication of the work originally published by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., New York, in 2001."
