Comprehensive manual embracing essentially all the classical and modern areas of chemical kinetics. Provides details of modern applications in chemistry, technology and biochemistry.
Special sections of the book treat subjects not covered sufficiently in other manuals, including: modern methods of experimental determination of rate constants of reactions including laser pico- and femtochemistry, magnetochemistry, and ESR; and descriptions of advanced theories of elementary chemical processes.
(BQ) Part 1 book "An introduction to chemical kinetics" has contents: Introduction, experimental procedures, the kinetic analysis of experimental data, theories of chemical reactions, potential energy surfaces.
Kinetics is the study of how fast chemical reactions occur. There are 4 important factors which affect rates of reactions: Reactant concentration, temperature, action of catalysts, and surface area. Invite you to consult.
The Physical Chemistry In Brief offers a digest of all major formulas, terms and definitions
needed for an understanding of the subject. They are illustrated by schematic figures, simple
worked-out examples, and a short accompanying text. The concept of the book makes it
different from common university or physical chemistry textbooks. In terms of contents, the
Physical Chemistry In Brief embraces the fundamental course in physical chemistry as taught
at the Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague, i.e.

We live in the age of biology—the human and many other organisms’
genomes have been sequenced and we are starting to understand the
function of the metabolic machinery responsible for life on our planet.
Thousands of new genes have been discovered, many of these coding for
enzymes of yet unknown function. Understanding the kinetic behavior
of an enzyme provides clues to its possible physiological role. From
a biotechnological point of view, knowledge of the catalytic properties
of an enzyme is required for the design of immobilized enzyme-based
Some people make physical chemistry sound more confusing than it really is. One of
their best tricks is to define it inaccurately, saying it is ‘the physics of chemicals’. This
definition is sometimes quite good, since it suggests we look at a chemical system and
ascertain how it follows the laws of nature. This is true, but it suggests that chemistry
is merely a sub-branch of physics; and the notoriously mathematical nature of physics
impels us to avoid this otherwise useful way of looking at physical chemistry....
The hero in The Name of the Rose is a medieval English monk. He acts as sleuth,
the derivation of a
and is heard to note at one point in the story how, ‘The study of words is the
whole of knowledge’. While we might wish he had gone a little
further to mention chemicals, we would have to agree that many
of our technical words can be traced back to Latin or Greek roots.
The remainder of them originate from the principal scientists who
pioneered a particular field of study, known as etymology....
Chemical reaction engineering is concerned with the exploitation of chemical reactions on a commercial scale. It's goal is the successful design and operation of chemical reactors. This text emphasizes qualitative arguments, simple design methods, graphical procedures, and frequent comparison of capabilities of the major reactor types. Simple ideas are treated first, and are then extended to the more complex.
Glutathionylspermidine is an intermediate formed in the biosynthesis of
trypanothione, an essential metabolite in defence against chemical and oxi-dative stress in the Kinetoplastida. The kinetic mechanism for glutathionyl-spermidine synthetase (EC 188.8.131.52) from Crithidia fasciculata (CfGspS)
obeys a rapid equilibrium random ter-ter model with kinetic constants
