Covers the major experimental and theoretical methods currently used to study the energetics of stable molecules and reactive intermediates. Reviews the ate of the art and shows the interplay of experimental and theoretical methods used to probe bonding energetics and reactivity and a wide range of chemical species.
A modern and invaluable introduction to the study of molecular energetics. A reference for workers currently involved in the field.
