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.
