An introduction to chemical kinetics

£19.99

Product description

This hardback is in very good condition. The pages are unmarked, the covers are clean and undamaged. It is virtually "as new".

The range of courses requiring a good basic understanding of chemical kinetics is extensive, ranging from chemical engineers and pharmacists to biochemists and providing the fundamentals in chemistry. Due to the wide reaching nature of the subject readers often struggle to find a book which provides in-depth, comprehensive information without focusing on one specific subject too heavily. Here Dr Margaret Wright provides an essential introduction to the subject guiding the reader through the basics but then going on to provide a reference which professionals will continue to dip in to through their careers. Through extensive worked examples, Dr Wright, presents the theories as to why and how reactions occur, before examining the physical and chemical requirements for a reaction and the factors which can influence these. Carefully structured, each chapter includes learning objectives, summary sections and problems. Includes numerous applications to show relevance of kinetics and also provides plenty of worked examples integrated throughout the text. An Introduction to Chemical Kinetics provides a gentle overview of the subject offering a comprehensive coverage of key topics needed for a clear understanding of the fundamental aspects of kinetics. Emphasis is placed on how experimental data is collected and manipulated to give standard kinetic quantities relating to rates of reaction. The book then moves on to interpret these quantities, and to develop mechanisms describing the chemical steps in a wide variety of reactions in both gas and solution phase.The student is carefully guided through the necessary theory, in particular looking at how and why reactions occur and the physical and chemical requirements for reaction. An invaluable text for students of chemistry, chemical engineering, pharmacy and biochemistry taking a first course in kinetics. This book will also be of interest to professionals in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry needing an accessible introduction to the subject. Includes learning objectives, summary sections and end of chapter problems. Step by step guidance and and clear explanation of topics. Includes a wide variety of worked examples throughout. Shows the relevance of kinetics to many areas of chemistry.

Oxfam Bookshop Balham

Balham, or 'The Gateway to the South' as Peter Sellers once called it, is a bustling corner of south west London, situated between Clapham and Tooting. The area is well known for its comedy heritage, thanks in no small part to Sellers's sketch, as well as comedy circuit staple The Bedford Arms and famous residents Arthur Smith, Andy Zaltzman and Richard Herring. The area also hosts something of a literary heritage with DBC Pierre having written his Booker prize-winning first novel in Balham. Our bookshop is located on the busy High Road just down the road from the tube station which was bombed in October 1940, an event immortalised in Ian McEwan's Atonement.
