"I highly recommend this wonderful book to all. It will stand as a classic of its time" (Materials Today, December 2002)
Nerdtastic book written by my pchem professor dr. K I took dr. Kolasinski for pchem 1 last semester and i am taking him for pchem II this spring. This book is a good companion book to your pchem textbook. some of our homework problems were taken from material in this book. I purchased this book to get a leg up in pchem and it helped somewhat.
Starting with an examination of the importance of heterogeneous reactions, it lays the foundations for an understanding of chemical reactions at surfaces through a detailed treatment of surface electronic and geometric structure. This text will provide the reader with a well-rounded understanding, not only of how chemistry works at surfaces, but also how to understand and probe the dynamics of surface reactions. Reactivity on and with surfaces is clearly explained. * Includes numerous examples of the relevance of surface chemistry to industrial processes combined with end of chapter problems and an extensive bibliography. Surface Science: Foundations of Catalysis and Nanoscience offers a comprehensive, modern introduction to the subject, taking a truly pedagogical approach. Surface Chemistry is an essential and devel
