Editorial Reviews

Review

"Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (Choice, 1 March 2011)

"It has been extensively revised, especially in the area of nanoparticles." (Chemistry World, August 2010)

Review

"I would highly recommend publishing this book.  His addition of bio-surfaces and nanoparticle catalysis to this second edition is timely and appropriate."  --David Catsner, Dept. of Chemical Engineering, Univ. of Washington at Seattle

"The treatment of this material is certainly authoritative. Somorajai is the leading figure in the world in the field of surface chemistry." -- Professor Steven Bernasek, Chemistry, Princeton University

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the better and more complete books on surface science. The book devotes seperate chapters to the various aspects of surfaces, such as structure, dynamics, thermodynamics, reactions at surfaces, etc... The chemistry and physics of surfaces are covered in detail, and many topics are explained in detail; i.e. the difference between chemisorption and physiosorption. The various properties of surfaces (work function, electron affinity, reconstructions) are explained and literature data is provided through extensive use of tables, charts and figures. This book would serve as a good textbook for a class on the same topic. This book would also serve as a great reference book. The end of each chapter contains an extensive list of references. The book includes a large list of acronyms commonly used in surface science. There are also extensive lists of experimental data of surfaces; an example is the list of known reconstructions for both bare surfaces and surfaces terminated with different molecules.

There are four major limitations to this text. First, it covers the science of surfaces from a non-biological point of view. Second, there is no dedicated chapter on techniques used for analyzing surfaces. Instead, the different techniques are described in the sections that deal with related properties. For example, the work function, electron affinity, and techniques used to determine these properties are all described in the chapter on electrical properties. Third, this book was printed in 1994, making it somewhat dated, especially in a field that is growing as rapidly as surface science. Last, there is very little discussion of how computer modeling, specifically quantum mechanical calculations, can be used to study surfaces.

This is a great book for surface science. The book was brand new. I received it 3 days after I placed the order. I highly recommend it.
