Description

Astrochemistry, the study of molecules and their chemistry in astrophysical objects throughout the Universe, is experiencing a true golden age. Astronomical observations of molecules are crucial in contributing to our understanding of the physical conditions in many different astrophysical environments, from the Solar System and extrasolar planets to stars, interstellar clouds and galaxies. Concurrently, laboratory experiments and theoretical studies can provide basic information about the often exotic chemical processes taking place in the Universe. IAU Symposium 280 contains outstanding reviews on the advances in observational, laboratory, theoretical and modelling studies, carried out by leading scientists worldwide. This volume provides researchers and graduate students with an indispensable account of the current state of astrochemistry, its recent successes and the immense possibilities of this fascinating field for future growth.
