CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The dynamic field of extraterrestrial chemistry brings together ideas of
chemistry, astrophysics, and biology to the study of molecules between stars,
around stars, and on plantes. This book serves as an introduction to chemical
processes under "unearthly" and hence usually extreme conditions (temperature,
pressure, high or low density, bombardment by cosmic rays), and their impact on
the early development of our solar system, as well as providing a deeper
understanding of processes in earthly regions where conditions approach those
of extraterrestrial areas. A unique and extraordinary perspective written with
chemists in mind. An excellent practical book for inorganic, and physical
chemists, spectroscopists, astronomers, and libraries. From the contents: *
Introduction and technical notes * Origin and development of the universe *
Stars * The interstellar medium * The solar system * Exoplanets * The origin of
