Editorial Reviews

`An outstanding text in this series provides a highly authoritative, lucid, concise account of the subject and a more detailed presentation than is available in most undergraduate textbooks of physical chemistry. It covers both underlying fundamental aspects and applications especially innature and in medicine.'Aslib Book Guide, vol.61, no.12, December 1996.
