Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this third edition, core applications have been added along with more recent developments in the theories of chemical reaction kinetics and molecular quantum mechanics, as well as in the experimental study of extremely rapid chemical reactions.

* Fully revised concise edition covering recent developments in the field

* Clear and comprehensive text ideal for undergraduate and graduate course study

* Encourages readers to apply theory in practical situations

Synopsis:

Mortimer's text has long been hailed for its clarity of presentation, making both the principles and applications of physical chemistry as clear and understandable as possible. In this third edition, core applications have been added along with more recent developments in the theories of chemical reaction kinetics and molecular quantum mechanics, as well as in the experimental study of extremely rapid chemical reactions.
