Acid-base equilibria are one of the most important chemical reactions - affecting living systems through to industrial processes. This book covers everything any scientist would like to know about this topic from structural and solvent effects to the practical determination of dissociation constants. Cox follows his mentor R.P. Bell in presenting a lucid and well-written comprehensive text. Highly recommended. (Michael Page, University of Huddersfield)
