Book Review The Radiation Chemistry of Water. By I. G. Dragani and Z. D. Dragani

код для вставкиСкачать
significant position in organoelement chemistry thanks to
the technical breakthrough of organosilicon chemistry,
may surprise the reader not familiar with the growth rate
of its literature by now having an entire book published on
only two special groups of compounds, i.e. organo derivatives of silicon and phosphorus and of silicon and sulfur.
This is a very concisely arranged and instructively written
book by authors who have themselves made substantial
contributions in this field and in whose country this branch
of chemistry receives particular attention. The first 140
pages are devoted to the chapter on organosilicon derivatives of phosphorus, and a further 176 pages to the chapter
on organosihcon derivatives of sulfur, both chapters being
divided into sections according to characteristic bonds,
1’. y. Si-0-P,
and Si-S-H,-S-C,
These sections begin with preparative
methods; a few examples are used for the discussion of
the behavior of the classes of substances in question, and
the physical data for the various compounds are given,
mostly in tabulated form
As a result, the picture of the organoelement compounds
from this part of the periodic system has been rounded
off,analogies and relationships have come out, and differences have become less pronounced. The book will be
rewarding both to the fundamental scientist and to those
active in this field; it has much to offer to the advanced
student also.

Reaction Mechanisms in Sulfuric Acid and other Strong
Acid Solutions. By M . Liler. Academic Press, LondonNew York 1971. 1st ed., xiii, 350 pp., numerous figures
and tables, bound E 6.-.
The investigation of organic compounds in very strong
acids has been carried on intensively during the past few
years and has led to a whole series of unique findings.
A comprehensive monograph on the reaction behavior
of mainly organic substances in sulfuric acid, which is
probably the most versatile and the most interesting of
the strong acids from the historical point of view, is therefore very welcome.
After a brief historical introduction, the first section deals
with the physical (density, viscosity, conductivity, efc.),
thermodynamic (phase transitions, heat capacity, etc.), and
spectroscopic (Raman, IR, UV, NMR) properties of sulfuric
acid/water mixtures. The section ends with a brief discussion of dideutero and 35S-sulfuric acid (25 pp.). The second
section is devoted to the acidity functions. The acidity
functions for simple protonations, protonations of olefins,
and complex ionizations are considered. The individual
acidity functions (Ho, Hb, HA,H,, H,, H,, etc.) and their
physical significance are then briefly discussed (33 pp.).
The third section deals u;
i the protonation of very weak
bases, the experimental methods for the determination
of basicity in sulfuric acid being discussed in the first
part and individual classes of compounds with nitrogen,
phosphorus, oxygen, e’rc. as the basic center, as well as
basic hydrocarbons, in the second part (86 pp.). Complex
ionizations of organic and inorganic substances (determination and discussiw of their i factors) are the subject
of the fourth sectiok ‘?The fifth and final section takes
u p about half of the book (139 pp.) and has the same
title as the book itself. After a general discussion of the
main reaction types in strongly acidic solutions, individual
classes such as hydrolysis, hydration, isomerizations and
rearrangements, decarbonylation and decarboxylation.
electrophilic aromatic substitution, and special cases of
carbonium ion reactions are discussed.
On the whole the book gives a good and comprehensive
survey of reactions in sulfuric acid, the emphasis generally
being placed on quantitative aspects. Preparative problems
are left somewhat in the background. In the discussion
of cyclizations in strong sulfuric acid, for example, a
comparison with hydrogen fluoride or polyphosphoric acid
would have been valuable to the organic chemist. In the
discussion of the reactions of azides, one finds no reference
to the extensive work of Bamberger on the decomposition
of aryl azides in strong acids.

The Radiation Chemistry of Water. By 1. G. DraganiF
and 2. D. Drugunic:. Academic Press, London-New York
1971. 1st ed., xi, 242 pp,, numerous figures and tables,
bound $ 14.-.
Great advances, resulting in numerous publications, have
been achieved in the field of the radiation chemistry of
water during the past ten years, mainly through the discovery of the hydrated electron and the development of
the pulse radiolysis technique.
Much of the recent knowledge is surveyed in the present
monograph, which is strictly confined to the radiation
chemistry of liquid water. The authors link up with an
account by A . 0. Allen, which has been one of the standard
works on radiation chemistry for ten years.
The book is divided into eight chapters. It begins with
a survey of the last 70 years in the radiation chemistry
of water. The physical processes involved in the absorption
of radiation in water are discussed in detail. Chapters
3 and 4aredevoted to the properties and chemical reactions
of the primary radicals produced by radiation, i.e. the
hydrated electrons, hydrogen atoms, and hydroxyl radicals.
These two central chapters are unfortunately very incomplete, and clarity is lost through the repetition of historical
The radiation-chemical yield (G value) of primary radicals
and molecular products (HZand H 2 0 2 ) as a function
of pH, pressure, temperature, LET, and dose rate has
a chapter to itself. This is followed by a discussion of
a number of new diffusion-kinetic models with a comparison of data obtained theoretically and experimentally. The
book ends with a survey of experimental methods (radiation sources, pulse radiolysis technique, sample preparation, etc.) and dosimetry in water and with aqueous solutions.
The long compilation of original literature, which- is cornplete up to 1967 but covered only in part up to 1969,
must be specially msotioned, as well as the chapters on
the radiatio&&emickl yield and on the diffusion-kinetic
mod&. Another commendable feature is the summary
that precedes each chapter, from which the main ideas
can be repeatedly picked out, and which pleasantly break
up the description, which is otherwise rigorous and often
goes into great detail. The book will undoubtedly be useful
to the specialist and to the interested scientist.
