Chemical Thermodynamics: Advanced Applications extends the understanding of thermodynamics developed in Chemical Thermodynamics: Principles and Applications. The book covers the "middle ground" between the basic principles developed in the beginning thermodynamics textbook and the very specialized applications that are a part of an ongoing research project. This book provides:
-- An excellent review of thermodynamic principles and mathematical relationships, along with references to the relevant sections in Principles and Applications where these equations are developed
-- Applications of thermodynamics in a wide variety of chemical processes, including phase equilibria, chemical equilibrium, properties of mixtures, and surface chemistry
-- A case-study approach to demonstrate the application of thermodynamics to biochemical, geochemical and industrial processes
-- Applications at the "cutting edge" of thermodynamics
-- Examples and problems to assist in learning the subject
-- A complete set of references to all literature sources.
Chemical Thermodynamics: Advanced Applications is invaluable to practicing scientists who need to apply thermodynamic relationships to aid in their understanding of the chemical process under consideration. It also serves well as a textbook for special topics courses in chemical thermodynamics and will prepare advanced graduate students for the applications of thermodynamics principles relevant to their research program. The book is also of interest to those working in chemical related industries and research laboratories, contract research organizations, and consulting firms. Together with Chemical Thermodynamics: Principles andApplications, this book provides an excellent reference source on chemical thermodynamics.
