  • Outlines principles of physical chemistry needed for the fields of astrochemistry and astrobiology
  • Contributions from international experts in astrochemistry and astrobiology
  • Suitable for researchers from interdisciplinary fields

Astrochemistry and Astrobiology is the debut volume in the new series Physical Chemistry in Action. Aimed at both the novice and experienced researcher, this volume outlines the physico-chemical principles which underpin efforts to understand astrochemistry and predict astrobiology. An introductory chapter includes fundamental aspects of physical chemistry required for understanding the field. Eight further chapters address specific topics, encompassing basic theory and models, up-to-date research and an outlook on future work. The last chapter examines each of the topics addressed from a different angle. Written and edited by international experts, this text is accessible for those entering the field of astrochemistry and astrobiology, whilst still providing new information and insights for experienced researchers.
