About this book

Takes a comprehensive approach to understanding the rates of chemical reactions, addressing reactions in the gas phase, in solution and on the surface of solid catalysts.

The author explains clearly the basic principles of the dynamics of a wide range of chemical reactions and provides a useful selection of problems for the student to solve. (The ASLIB Book Guide) "Fundamentals of Chemical Kinetics can be recommended unreservedly for readers seeking a broad introductory insight into the subject". (Angew. Chem. Int)
