Published a few years after the author's death, this volume is a sequel to his 1964 book, Fast Reactions in Solution ; the material is entirely new, extending investigation beyond now well-established fast-reaction techniques to consider their contribution to understanding events on the molecular scale. After an introductory chapter on origins, methods, mechanisms, and rate constants, coverage includes the rates of diffusion-controlled reactions, mathematical theory of diffusion, flash photolysis techniques, fluorescence quenching, Marcus theory involving proton-transfer and group-transfer reactions in solutions, and electron-transfer reactions.

This book deals with the contribution of fast reaction techniques to our understanding of events on the molecular scale during chemical reactions. It covers the advances resulting from the combination of chemical kinetic and spectroscopic methods and highlights the information to be obtained from ultrafast processes lasting a few picoseconds or less. Computerised molecular dynamics calculations are shown to be an additional important tool. These methods have transformed the extent of detail of knowledge it is now possible to obtain of individual reaction mechanisms.
The book contains sections on: the rates of diffusion-controlled reactions, the mathematical theory of diffusion and diffusion-controlled reaction rates, flash-photolysis techniques, initiation by high-energy radiation: plus radiolysis, fluorescence quenching and energy-transfer from excited molecules, ultrafast processes: sub-picosecond and femtosecond techniques, proton-transfer and group-transfer reactions in solution: Marcus theory (I) and electron-transfer reactions: Marcus theory (II).
