Book Description

May 5, 2008 0521847354 978-0521847353 1
This unique book provides a fundamental introduction to all aspects of modern plasma chemistry. The book describes mechanisms and kinetics of chemical processes in plasma, plasma statistics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and electrodynamics, as well as all major electric discharges applied in plasma chemistry. The book considers most of the major applications of plasma chemistry from electronics to thermal coatings, from treatment of polymers to fuel conversion and hydrogen production, and from plasma metallurgy to plasma medicine. The book can be helpful to engineers, scientists, and students interested in plasma physics, plasma chemistry, plasma engineering, and combustion, as well as in chemical physics, lasers, energy systems, and environmental control. The book contains an extensive database on plasma kinetics and thermodynamics as well as a lot of convenient numerical formulas for practical calculations related to specific plasma-chemical processes and applications. The book contains a large number of problems and concept questions that are helpful in university courses related to plasma, lasers, combustion, chemical kinetics, statistics and thermodynamics, and high-temperature and high-energy fluid mechanics.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply awesome September 23, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Unlike any technical effort I can recall this volume is both a "page turner" and an absolutely essential reference. Fridman has a fine skill at choosing the right details to collect on just about any topic you can pluck from the index or table of contents. His summary breadth is compelling and a real gold mine. His cited literature is well chosen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fridman- plasmachemistry October 14, 2008
Format:Hardcover
Item was delivered in time, but the book came with cover smashed at the edge. However, I don't know who's fault is it- seller or postal service.
