Description

Thanks to the progress made in instruments and techniques, the methods in physical chemistry have developed rapidly over the past
few decades, making them increasingly valuable for scientists of many disciplines.

These two must-have volumes meet the needs of the scientific community for a thorough overview of all the important methods currently
used. As such, this work bridges the gap between standard textbooks and review articles, covering a large number of methods, as well as the
motivation behind their use.

A uniform approach is adopted throughout both volumes, while the critical comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of each method
makes this a valuable reference for physical chemists and other scientists working with these techniques.
