Medvedevskikh (physical chemistry, National Academy of Sciences, Ukraine) et al. have assembled 20 articles (some quite brief) on thermodynamics, organic solvents, photosynthesis, free radicals, specific compounds, and other topics. The writing in some abstracts and articles is unclear or contains grammar errors, suggesting that English is not the main editor’s nor the authors’ first language. They work in chemistry, physics, geochemistry, and other fields, mostly in Eastern Europe. The preface is an amalgamation of the abstracts and sheds no light on any overarching theme of the compilation.
