About this series
Physical Chemistry in Action presents topical volumes which outline essential physicochemical principles and techniques needed for areas of interdisciplinary research. The scope and coverage includes all areas of research permeated by physical chemistry: organic and inorganic chemistry; biophysics, biochemistry and the life sciences; the pharmaceutical sciences; crystallography; materials sciences; and many more. This series is aimed at students, researchers and academics who require a fundamental knowledge of physical chemistry for working in their particular research field. Each volume begins with an introductory chapter aimed at the novice, which provides background and a valuable perspective on the respective field. The following chapters discuss the physicochemical concepts and methods used, as well as applications of the stated methods in the field. Volumes are edited and include contributed chapters from researchers working in the field. Contributions by authors from all of the various disciplines are encouraged.
