Part of the Understanding Chemical Reactivity book series (UCRE, volume 18)


Extended irreversible thermodynamics has known a wide development during the two last decades. In this work, the main statements of the theory are reviewed and a panoramic view of some of the open problems to be studied in the future years is presented.
