Synopses & Reviews
Taking an interdisciplinary approach, this book and its counterpart, Active Oxygen in Biochemistry, explore the active research area of the chemistry and biochemistry of oxygen. Complementary but independent, the two volumes integrate subject areas including medicine, biology, chemistry, engineering, and environmental studies.
This volume focuses on the energetic and reactions of dioxygen (02) and its reactive species (radical ions and superoxides). Chapters include important chemical reactions that occur with metals, in oxidation catalysis, and in the atmosphere.
