This well-organised, comprehensive reference and textbook describes rate models developed from fundamental kinetic theory and presents models using consistent terminology and notation. Major topics include rate equations, reactor theory, transition state theory, surface reactivity, advective and diffusive transport, aggregation kinetics, nucleation kinetics, and solid-solid transformation rates. The theoretical basis and mathematical derivation of each model is presented in detail and illustrated with worked examples from real-world applications to geochemical problems. The book is also supported by online resources: self-study problems put students' new learning into practice, and spreadsheets provide the full data used in figures and examples, enabling students to manipulate the data for themselves. This is an ideal overview for graduate students, providing a solid understanding of geochemical kinetics. It will also provide researchers and professional geochemists with a valuable reference for solving practical and scientific problems.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"This book is a must-read for students who are interested in the rates of geochemical low-temperature processes and their quantitative models."
Julita Biernacka, GeologosSee more reviews
"The book is well documented with 18 pages of references on geochemical reaction kinetics. Valuable for anyone who seeks to understand geochemical processes or who needs a comprehensive reference on geochemical kinetics. … Highly recommended."
N. W. Hinman, Choice
‘… a delight to read and fills an urgent need for students of geochemistry … this is an excellent textbook for upper class undergraduate and graduate student courses. It is also a great reference book for someone who works in government agencies and oil industries and encounters the topic of kinetics in environmental or production projects. Additionally, I would also recommend this book to any serious researcher who works on kinetic problems. The insights in this book on how to interpret experimental data using geochemical rate models are so valuable, and nobody has more authority than the author in providing these insights.’ Chen Zhu, American Mineralogist
