This book covers the development of both experiment and theory in natural surface particle chemistry. It emphasizes insights gained over the past few years, and concentrates on molecular spectroscopy, kinetics, and equilibrium as they apply to natural particle surface reactions in aqueous media. The discussion, divided among five chapters, is complemented by lengthy annotations, reading suggestions, and end-of-chapter problem sets that require a critical reading of important technical journal articles.

2. The Spectroscopic Detection of Surface Species: X-Ray Adsorption Spectroscopy, Infrared, Electron Spin Resonance, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
3. Surface Chemical Kinetics: Phenomenology, Adsoption Reactions, Surface Oxidation-Reduction Reactions, Proton-Promoted Mineral Dissolution Reactions, Ligand-Promoted Mineral Dissolution Reactions
4. Modeling Ion Adsorption: The Diffuse Swarm, Surface Complexes, Temperature Effects, Affinity, Natural Particle Adsorption Reactions
5. Colloidal Phenomena: Probing Surface Particle Structure, Particle Formation Kinetics, Stability Ratio, The von Smoluchowski Rate Law, Solving the von Smoluchowski Equation
