Addresses the progress of chemical reactions towards thermodyamic equilibrium. Fundamentals of Chemical Kinetics deals comprehensively with experiment and theory, putting the role of each in context and treats reactions in the gas phase, in solution and on the surface of solid catalysts. On each topic, a clear distinction is preserved between empirical quantities used to report experimental findings and parameters belonging to a quantitative theory of chemical reactions.
