Acerca de


Chemical Kinetics and Catalysis is a comprehensive guide to chemical kinetics and catalysis, and focuses on the use of computational tools for studying chemical kinetics and catalytic phenomena.  Provides a thorough and up-to-date treatment of chemical kinetics and catalysis, combining traditional background information with the latest computational methods for fitting data to appropriate rate equations. Demonstrates how the vastly improved computational tools now available allow application of kinetic concepts to understanding and predicting the behavior of diverse and complex phenomena, including biological systems, semiconductor growth, and corrosion.

  • Contains chapters reviewing of kinetic concepts, introducing kinetics via rate equations and mechanisms, explaining the theory of reaction rates (a section on trajectory calculations to simulate reactions), predicting potential energy surfaces (methods for directing the reaction rate), and discussing catalysis with a focus on modifying the reaction rate.
  • A useful reference guide, providing the essential basics along with numerous solved examples, problems, and illustrative computer programs.

From the Back Cover:

A textbook for kinetics in the twenty-first century


Chemical kinetics is important for understanding a number of processes, including how food is metabolized, how pharmaceuticals function in a biological system, and how pollutants produced by gasoline combustion are converted for release into the atmosphere. The revolution in computational modeling necessitates an updated text that maintains the relevant traditional background while introducing novel computational methods. Chemical Kinetics and Catalysis meets this challenge and provides an appropriate text for the next generation of scientists in this field.

The advent of accurate graphing programs has all but eliminated the use of complex methods to fit data to appropriate rate equations. Within the framework of the traditional theories of kinetics and catalysis, Masel adds explanations of computational graphing programs, numerous solved examples, and problems.

This comprehensive text covers:
* Introduction to kinetics via rate equations and mechanisms
* Theory of reaction rates with a section on utilizing trajectory calculations to simulate reactions
* Prediction of potential energy surfaces including methods for directing the reaction rate
* Examination of catalysis, particularly how solvents, metals, and oxides can be used to modify the potential energy surface for reactions and thereby modify reaction rates

Chemical Kinetics and Catalysis is an indispensable tool for both students and researchers in engineering, chemistry, and biochemistry.
