Chemical Generation and Reception of Radio and Microwaves
With this first critical overview in a decade, two internationally recognized authorities on spin chemistry make an important contribution to this timely topic in chemical physics. Two novel features of chemical reactions are described: The generation o waves by reactions and the effects of the electromagnetic waves on some chemical reactions. In this sense, this treatise formulates chemical radiophysics as a new field of chemical physics. The authors detail physical and chemical reaction mechanisms, the selection of nuclei by spin orientation and magnetic moment, (non)magnetic isotope separation and accumulation in reaction methods. Coverage features new insights into chemical dynamics and reaction mechanisms. Chemical radiophysics offers new radiospectroscopy techniques of exquisite sensitivity. One brief chapter summarizes the physical basis by which electromagnetic fields could affect reactions of biological significance. Chemical Generation and Reception of Radio- and Microwaves is an essential reference for chemical physicists, physical organic chemists, materials scientists, and radio- and biophysicists.
