Reactivity of Solids: Past, Present and Future
A "Chemistry for the 21st Century Monograph".

V. V. Boldyrev

Blackwell Science, 1996 [ISBN 0865426872]

In the best tradition of the IUPAC Chemistry for the 21st Century series, this latest title presents a series of state-of-the-art reviews on the reactivity of solids. Each of the articles, written by leading experts, provides a wide overview of progress in the field, evaluates the state of research at present and examines the prospects for the future. The book covers the problems related to the hierarchy of defects in solids, the kinetics of chemical reactions in solids, and the reactions in solid matrices. It also considers in some detail various types of heterogeneous reactions, homogeneous reactions and chemical reactions in organic solids. Special chapters are devoted to the application of solid state reactions in inorganic synthesis and the manufacture of new materials.
