Overview

Physical and Chemical Kinetics concludes the three-volume set of Physical Chemistry, Second Edition, by R. Stephen Berry, Stuart A. Rice, and John Ross (OUP 2000). With the same precision and efficiency as the other two volumes, Physical and Chemical Kinetics discusses the elements of physical and chemical kinetics and presents advanced discussions of unimolecular reactions, kinetics of photochemically induced reactions, chain reactions, nonlinear phenomena, fluctuations in chemical kinetics, symmetry rules for chemical reactions, catalysis, and the kinetics of electrode reactions. Up-to-date and thorough, this valuable reference provides the cutting-edge information and theory that today's students and researchers need to understand past scientific accomplishments as well as to make future contributions to the field of physical chemistry.
