Collation xiii, 952 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.
Notes Includes bibliographical references (p. 901-913) and index.
Contents Notes Introduction -- Review of some elementary concepts -- Analysis of rate data -- Relationship between rates and mechanisms -- Prediction of the mechanisms of reactions -- Review of some thermodynamics and statistical mechanics -- Introduction to reaction rate theory -- Reactions as collisions -- Transition state theory, the RRKM model, and related results -- Why do reactions have activation barriers? -- More about activation energies -- Introduction to catalysis -- Solvents as catalysts -- Catalysis by metals. "Chemical kinetics is important for understanding a number of processes, including how food is metabolized, how pharmaceuticals function in a biological system, and how pollutants produced by gasoline combustion are converted for release into the atmosphere. The revolution in computational modeling necessitates an updated text that maintains the relevant traditional background while introducing novel computational methods. Chemical Kinetics and Catalysis meets this challenge and provides an appropriate text for the next generation of scientists in this field.". "The advent of accurate graphing programs has all but eliminated the use of complex methods to fit data to appropriate rate equations. Within the framework of the traditional theories of kinetics and catalysis, Masel adds explanations of computational graphing programs, numerous solved examples, and problems."--BOOK JACKET.
