Editors: Eli M. Pearce and Gerald Kirshenbaum (Polytechnic Institute of NYU, Brooklyn, NY), G.E. Zaikov (Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia)

Series: Physics Research and Technology

This book reviews new information in chemical and biochemical physics, including research on polymers in polluted atmospheres, free radical and ion-radical conversions initiated by nitrogen oxides, selective catalytic oxidation of hydrocarbons, the mechanism of the ethylbenzene oxidation with dioxygen, catalyzed by cobalt complexes, measurements of the total phenol type antioxidant content in berry, fruit and vegetable juice mixes, as well as some applications of nanocarbon materials for novel devices, functionalization of some oligomers in the presence of different catalytic systems and others.
