This book is a progressive presentation of kinetics of the chemicalreactions. It provides complete coverage of the domain of chemicalkinetics, which is necessary for the various future users in thefields of Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Materials Science,Chemical Engineering, Macromolecular Chemistry and Combustion. Itwill help them to understand the most sophisticated knowledge oftheir future job area. Over 15 chapters, this book present the fundamentals of chemicalkinetics, its relations with reaction mechanisms and kineticproperties. Two chapters are then devoted to experimental resultsand how to calculate the kinetic laws in both homogeneous andheterogeneous systems. The following two chapters describe the mainapproximation modes to calculate these laws. Three chapters aredevoted to elementary steps with the various classes, theprinciples used to write them and their modeling using the theoryof the activated complex in gas and condensed phases. Threechapters are devoted to the particular areas of chemical reactions,chain reactions, catalysis and the stoichiometric heterogeneousreactions. Finally the non-steady-state processes of combustion andexplosion are treated in the final chapter.
