Book Description Chemical hardness is one of the highly useful qualitative concepts which enable chemists to understand why certain chemical reactions take place and which ones are likely to "work" without referring to large supercomputers and databases. Written by the inventor of the concept, this book examines the history, applications, and theoretical foundations of chemical hardness to provide an excellent and highly readable source of information for every chemist.
