Introductory text which provides a comprehensive and unified account of the important chemical processes in soils that can be described by reactions.
"The book is focused on showing how thermodynamics and kinetics are best used to describe these reactions that occur in bulk solution or at the interface with mineral and organic solids. . . a spare, meaty summary of important concepts. . . . This book is instructive in providing methods and guidelines for constructing solutions to chemical problems in soils." --Geochemica et Cosmochimica Acta
"Concisely written, with extreme precision of nomenclature. Its six chapters cover chemical equilibrium and kinetics; chemical speciation in aqueous solutions; mineral solubility; surface reactions; ion exchange reactions; and colloidal processes. Much that is alluded to in other treatments of chemical kinetics is explicitly and clearly explained here, with an admirable economy of words and effective use of equations."--Journal of Geology
"An excellent book, one that will be very useful to professionals and students who are interested in chemical equilibria and kinetics in natural syste
