Encyclopedia of Chemical Physics and Physical Chemistry, Volumes 1-3
Readers of K-News have two weeks of open access to a select title or group of titles in each issue. This issue features a title from the Chemistry & Chemical Engineering Subject Area:
Encyclopedia of Chemical Physics and Physical Chemistry, Volumes 1-3 (c) 2001, Institute of Physics. This three-volume encyclopedia offers extensive coverage in the closely related areas of chemical physics and physical chemistry. Focusing on both disciplines as interrelated, the Encyclopedia contains a wide variety of information to meet the special research needs of the chemical physicist and the physical chemist and, thus, enables specialists in both fields to conduct interdisciplinary research. Features include definitions of the scope of each sub-discipline, and instructions on where to go for a more complete and detailed explanation. The Encyclopedia is also a helpful resource for graduate students because it gives a synopsis of the basics and an overview of the range of activities in which physical principles are applied to chemical problems.
