The world is not at equilibrium, and the events that give vitality and movement are transitions towards equilibrium from the present state of imbalance. This text examines the chemical transformations that often contribute fundamentally to this process. The book begins with a basic introduction to the kinetics of simple and complex reaction systems in solution. It goes on to present a treatment of the more advanced topics such as solvent effects, fast reaction techniques, and heterogeneous liquid-liquid two-phase systems. An overview of currently active and important research areas in solution kinetics concludes the text. Industrial chemists and students will welcome this superb introduction to a challenging and important topic.
