Astrochemistry Texts & Books

Description The dynamic field of astrochemistry brings together ideas of physics, astrophysics, biology and chemistry to the study of molecules between stars, around stars and on planets. Starting with the Molecular Universe, the text covers the formation of the elements, simple models of stars and their classification. It then moves on to draw on the theme of the Origins of Life to study interstellar chemistry, meteorite and comet chemistry as well as the chemistry of planets.

Prebiotic chemistry and astfochemistry are explored by examining the extremes of the biosphere on Earth, seeing how this may be applied to life in other solar systems. About the Author Andrew M. ShawUniversity of Exeter, UK. Permissions Astrobiolkgy permission to reuse content from this site.
