The Labile Molecule

    Article metrics


    AT the present time there is a great deal of activity in the field of chemical kinetics in unravelling the complexity of those reactions which are believed to proceed by the intervention of free radicals both in the liquid and in the gas phase. Once more the Faraday Society has, at an opportune time held a full-dress discussion of a subject that is not merely fashionable, but is also in full flight of the vigour of its development. Just as many of the Faraday Society discussions tend to become works of reference and inspiration for further work, so too does the present volume fall into this category. It is to be seen, well thumbed, in most laboratories having an interest in chemical kinetics.
