Reviews of Reactive Intermediate Chemistry
The book includes:
- Relevant, practical applications
- Coverage of such topics as mass spectrometry methods, reactive intermediates in interstellar medium, quantum mechanical tunnelling, solvent effects, reactive intermediates in biochemical processes, and excited state surfaces
- Discussions of emerging areas, particularly those involving dynamics and theories
- Concluding sections identifying key directions for future research are provided at the end of each chapter
