This volume provides a practical introduction to the use of high-pressure techniques in chemistry and physics. The authors provide details of the experimental methods and equipment needed to carry out observations and measurements at very high pressures. The pressures involved range from a few thousand bars for some chemical studies to hundreds of thousands of bars for some physical experimentation. High-pressure techniques may be used to learn more about the structure of matter and mechanisms of chemical reactions. This volume includes detailed descriptions of equipment to measure the following criteria under high pressure conditions: compressibility and equations of state; dielectric constants and conductance; viscocity; X-ray and neutron diffraction; optical absorption and luminescence; Mossbauer spectra; NMR. IR. and UV spectra; molecular dynamics; kinetics; organic and inorganic synthesis; electro-chemistry and electrophoresis. Applications such as the preservation of food are also discussed. High-pressure techniques in chemistry and physics: a practical approach is a comprehensive and detailed guide for all those engaged in high-pressure research and a valuable source of information for newcomers to the field. Each chapter contains useful toptics on specific equipment and techniques, as well as step-by-step protocols, essential background information, and key citations in the literature.
