Diffusion und chemische Reaktion in festen Stoffen

Nature volume 142, page 776 (29 October 1938) | Download Citation



THE present book deals with a number of phenomena which are of importance in modern physical chemistry. The chapters deal with diffusion processes in the solid state, irregularities in lattices (Fehlordnung), the elementary processes in solid reactions, tarnish, and general reactions in the solid state. Although the literature is fairly Well covered, there is more emphasis on modern work, including English and American. The field covered is limited, so that many topics such as recrystallization are excluded, but those parts selected for treatment are chosen judiciously and are dealt with in a very critical and systematic way. A good feature is the close relation which is established between the theoretical principles (which are very clearly stated) and the experimental results. The book is a well presented and accurate survey of an interesting subject.
