It has a most valuable and unusually complex index that runs to 27 pages and nearly entries. Each chapter is followed by problems and general and textual references. A solutions manual is available to instructors.
The emphasis is on the thermodynamics, structure, and rate processes of an interface, which constitutes surface physical chemistry as distinct from surface chemical physics, solid-state physics of surfaces, colloid physical chemistry, and polymer physical chemistry. The book treats the fundamentals of surface thermodynamics and the kinetics of adsorption, desorption, dissolution, evaporation, condensation precipitation, and surface reactions.
The longest chapter in the book, XVII, devotes 85 pages to the adsorption of gases and vapors on solids. The strength of the book lies in the coherent treatment of such a broad coverage of surfaces in such depth that even the most skeptical specialist must agree this is an excellent text. It is authoritative in its own right as well as a most valuable key to the current and the classical literature.
Robert L. Rowell University of Massachusetts, Amherst Although several techniques are used to divide discussions into manageable portions, the style of presentation and illustration appears less inviting to me than some of the more respected textbooks in eunent use.
The authors have c h w n to hegin most topin with a theoretical discussion and fallow it with specific examples.
In my opinion, a strength of the most widely used texts has been their preoccupation with factual information. Theory has been used by these texts to explain and interrelate facts and to enhance understanding rather than serve as the basis for discussing experimental results.
Wingrove and Caret have written aquality text for the first-year course in organic chemistry. The serious student can get a thorough introduction to the field from it.
I believe, however, that most students will find this text somewhat more difficult to use than some of its competitors. Nonetheless, I recommend that instructors include this fine text among those given consideration when choosing a new text.
