Designed for scientists and engineers involved in the chemistry and technology of antioxidants, the Second Edition of this popular handbook continues to provide comprehensive data on the thermodynamics and reactivity of antioxidants. Fully revised and updated, the Second Edition provides the latest data on antioxidants and polymer stabilizers, new data for biological antioxidants, a corrected list of bond dissociation energies, and a full bibliography.

Additions and changes in the New Edition:

  • The latest data on O-H bond dissociation energies of phenols and the new scale these values

  • Thermodynamic functions of antioxidants and their intermediate presented in tables

  • A table with current data on dissociation energies of C-H bonds of hydrocarbons and oxygen-containing compounds

  • Rate constants and activation energies of reactions of antioxidants with ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and hydroperoxide

  • Kinetic characteristics of benzoquinine reactions with antioxidants

  • Rate constants of free radical generation through biomolecular reactions with ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and hydroperoxide

  • All calculated data from the first edition has been recalculated in accordance with new data on dissociation energies and parameters of reactivity

  • Data on thermodynamics of hydrogen bond formation of antioxidants

  • All data on cyclic mechanisms of chain termination by antioxidants collected into a special chapter

  • Special chapters on bioantioxidants and stabilization of polymers

    The Handbook of Antioxidants puts essential data at your fingertips. Its comprehensive nature and ease-of-use make it the resource for scientific researchers and engineers working in the field of physical chemistry of antioxidants.
