- We can order this
Chemical Kinetics and Reaction Dynamics brings together the major facts and theories relating to the rates with which chemical reactions occur from both the macroscopic and microscopic point of view. This book helps the reader achieve a thorough understanding of the principles of chemical kinetics and includes:Detailed stereochemical discussions of reaction stepsClassical theory based calculations of state-to-state rate constantsA collection of matters on kinetics of various special reactions such as micellar catalysis, phase transfer catalysis, inhibition processes, oscillatory reactions, solid-state reactions, and polymerization reactions at a single source.
The growth of the chemical industry greatly depends on the application of chemical kinetics, catalysts and catalytic processes. This volume is therefore an invaluable resource for all academics, industrial researchers and students interested in kinetics, molecular reaction dynamics, and the mechanisms of chemical reactions.

From the reviews:
"This book wisely begins with elementary topics, then develops a broad overview of experimental kinetics and its theoretical basis, considers reactions in gas phase and solution, and concludes with more advanced discussion of reaction dynamics, including molecular beams and state-to state kinetics. ... The overall presentation is sound and quite suitable for upper-division undergraduates in the US. There are 84 suggested readings at the end of the book. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates; graduate students." (A. Viste, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (10), June, 2007)
"True to its title, this book aims to deliver a clear and comprehensive, textbook-like presentation of a topic that is central to physical chemistry: the chemical changes occurring in reacting systems. ... This book offers a useful and informative knowledge base in this field, addressing the needs of a broad, multidisciplinary readership, from undergraduate students of physical chemistry to researchers from both academics and industrial environments that need a modern, comprehensive, textbook-style information resource on chemical kinetic processes."
