Progress in Reaction Kinetics: Volume 9.1-4

Free sample

Progress in Reaction Kinetics, Volume 9 summarizes recent advances that have been made with regards to reaction kinetics. Kinetic applications of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy are described, and tunneling reactions of solvated electrons in liquids and glasses are discussed. The reactions of free radicals generated by organic compounds are also considered.
This volume consists of three chapters and begins with a discussion of basic NMR theory, including the NMR phenomenon and nuclear spin relaxation processes. Special attention is paid to the dynamic characteristics of chemical exchange reactions which occur in a system at equilibrium, along with techniques for determining chemical exchange parameters from time domain spectra and time dependent frequency domain spectra. The reader is then introduced to tunneling reactions of solvated electrons in liquids and glasses, with emphasis on the mode of transport by which the electron induces such a reaction. A model of diffusion-controlled reactions incorporating a tunneling reaction mechanism is described. A chapter analyzing the use of radiation to produce reactions of free radicals from organic compounds in aqueous solution, including hydrocarbons and carbonyl compounds, concludes the book.
This book will be of interest to scientists, students, and researchers working in the fields of chemistry and the molecular sciences.

"Succeeds spectacularly."—Science
"A tour de force."—Salon

Already internationally acclaimed for his elegant, lucid writing on the most challenging notions in modern physics, Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation as he brings his extraordinary intellect to bear not only on Higgs bosons and extra dimensions but now also on our deepest personal questions: Where are we? Who are we? Are our emotions, our beliefs, and our hopes and dreams ultimately meaningless out there in the void? Do human purpose and meaning fit into a scientific worldview?

In short chapters filled with intriguing historical anecdotes, personal asides, and rigorous exposition, readers learn the difference between how the world works at the quantum level, the cosmic level, and the human level—and then how each connects to the other. Carroll's presentation of the principles that have guided the scientific revolution from Darwin and Einstein to the origins of life, consciousness, and the universe is dazzlingly unique.  

Carroll shows how an avalanche of discoveries in the past few hundred years has changed our world and what really matters to us. Our lives are dwarfed like never before by the immensity of space and time, but they are redeemed by our capacity to comprehend it and give it meaning.

The Big Picture is an unprecedented scientific worldview, a tour de force that will sit on shelves alongside the works of Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan, Daniel Dennett, and E. O. Wilson for years to come.
