About This Book
Some Problems of Chemical Kinetics and Reactivity, Volume 1 consists of calculations on radical and radical chain reactions. The subject bond dissociation energies are fully discussed. The concept of uniradical reactivities is comprehensively explained. Isomerizations are a class of radical reactions in which the free valency takes another bond in the same radical. The text provides sample of experiments on the subject.
The book contains a section on polar factors in organic reactions. Polymerizations are another concept covered in the book. Subjects such as the reactions of biradicals, the start and end of a chain reaction, and ions of variable valency are explained. A separate chapter of the book focuses on the kinetics of chain reactions. The cracking of hydrocarbons such as the alkane is analyzed in detail. The oxidation of hydrocarbons is another topic explained in the book.
The text will provide excellent insight for chemists, students, and researchers in the field of chemistry.
