This course-derived undergraduate textbook provides a concise explanation of the key concepts and calculations of chemical thermodynamics. Instead of the usual ‘classical’ introduction, this text adopts a straightforward postulatory approach that introduces thermodynamic potentials such as entropy and energy more directly and transparently.

Structured around several features to assist students’ understanding, Chemical Thermodynamics :

  • Develops applications and methods for the ready treatment of equilibria on a sound quantitative basis.
  • Requires minimal background in calculus to understand the text and presents formal derivations to the student in a detailed but understandable way.
  • Offers end-of-chapter problems (and answers) for self-testing and review and reinforcement, of use for self- or group study.

This book is suitable as essential reading for courses in a  bachelor and master chemistry program and is also valuable as a reference or  textbook for students of physics, biochemistry and materials science.

Eminently suitable as a required textbook comprising complete material for or an undergraduate chemistry major course in chemical thermodynamics

Clearly explains details of formal derivations that students can easily follow and so master applied mathematical operations

Offers problems and solutions at the end of each chapter for self-test and self- or group study

1: Postulates of thermodynamics
2: Thermodynamic equilibrium in isolated and isentropic systems
3: Thermodynamic equilibrium in systems with other constraints
4: Thermodynamic processes and engines
5: Thermodynamics of mixtures (multi-component systems)
6: Phase equilibria
7: Equilibria of chemical reactions
8: Extension of thermodynamics for additional interactions (non-simple systems)
9: Elements of equilibrium statistical thermodynamics
10: Transport processes.

From the reviews:“This book is intended primarily as a text for undergraduate students in physical chemistry. … The author briefly describes the basics and attempts to provide students who have minimal calculus skills with an understanding of the subject. … Overall, the presentation is fairly straightforward and clearly written. … Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates.” (R. Darby, Choice, Vol. 50 (4), December, 2012)
