particularly useful to postgraduate and senior researchers who use non-aqueous solvents in their work ... I highly recommend this text. (Richard Henderson, Chemistry World)
Acidbase equilibria are intimately coupled to many of the processes involved in synthetic and analytical chemistry, including reaction rates and selectivity, solubility and partition equilibria, catalytic cycles and chromatographic retention times. These equilibria are extraordinarily sensitive to the nature of the solvent, with some equilibrium constants changing by as much as 1010 on transfer from water to aprotic solvents. This book, by a practitioner with a lifetimes experience in the area, dissects a complex subject and provides a clear discussion of the several interacting factors that determine ionisation behaviour. It will be an invaluable resource to scientists involved with chemistry in non-aqueous solvents. (John Atherton, University of Huddersfield)
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)
