Chemical Kinetics and Catalysis (NATO Asi Series)by R. A. Van Santen
Synopses & Reviews
Utilizing a didactical approach, the authors describe the kinetic theory of catalytic reactions and kinetics is related to the molecular properties of the reacting species. The volume opens with a historical overview of how the fields of catalysis and kinetics developed. Subsequent chapters explore the descriptive kinetics of catalytic reactions as well as the statistical thermodynamic concepts of reaction rate theory. The authors apply these concepts and arrive at a microscopic description of catalytic reactions at the molecular level.
Book News Annotation:
For professional chemists in academia and industry illustrates the connection among molecular properties of species involved in catalytic reactions, their reactivity, and the expression for reaction rate. From statistical thermodynamics derives relations between the vibrational and rotational properties of molecules and their propensity to adsorb and react on a surface and to desorb into the gas phase. Also introduces the transition-state reaction-rate theory.
