9781786340382: Astrochemistry and Atmospheric Chemistry: From the Big Bang to the Present Day (Advanced Textbooks in Chemistry) (Essential Textbooks in Chemistry)

Starting with the Big Bang, this book tells the story of the development of chemistry within our universe to the present day. Topics covered include: the spontaneous formation of the first chemical elements; the formation of higher chemical elements through stellar nucleosynthesis; the rich variety of 'alien' chemistry occurring in large interstellar gas clouds; formation of the solar system and evolution of the Earth; and the physical and chemical structure of today's atmosphere. Simple photochemical models are used to explain a range of phenomena such as the greenhouse effect, the formation of the ozone layer and the self-cleansing properties of the troposphere. Astrochemistry and Atmospheric Chemistry is suitable for undergraduates in chemistry and astrophysics, as well as anyone interested in the topic. This is a must-read for those who wish to understand the role of physical chemistry in the formation and current set-up of the world we live in.

Book Description World Scientific Europe Ltd, United Kingdom, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The rapidly growing field of astrochemistry studies the chemistry occurring in stars, planets, and the interstellar medium, bringing together elements of chemistry, physics, astrophysics, and biology. Astrochemistry: From the Big Bang to the Present Day describes the chemical history of the Universe, our solar system, and our planet. It explores in some detail the alien chemistry occurring in interstellar gas clouds, the regions where stars and planets are formed, and also looks at the theoretical and experimental methods that allow us to carry out Earth-based studies of astrochemistry.The evolution of the Universe and the complex chemistry occurring both in interstellar space and in the planetary systems that form in these regions is explained primarily in terms of basic principles of physical chemistry. While there is plenty to interest the general reader, this book is aimed at intermediate to advanced undergraduates of chemistry and astrochemistry, highlighting many different aspects of physical chemistry and demonstrating their relevance to the world we live in.This book was written in conjunction with Atmospheric Chemistry: From the Surface to the Stratosphere (2017) Scientific Publishing.
