The Chemistry of Peroxides is a new volume in the Chemistry of Functional Groups series. This series covers all aspects of organic chemistry with each volume containing chapters on:
  • General and theoretical aspects
  • Computational approaches
  • Thermodynamics and kinetics
  • NMR and ESR
  • Mass Spectrometry
  • Spectroscopies
  • Analytical aspects
  • Reaction mechanisms
  • Syntheses
  • Biological effects
  • Environmental effects
  • Industrial applications 

Edited by Zvi Rappoport, this series provides outstanding reviews on all aspects of functional groups in analytical, physical, synthetic and applied chemistry.
