Chemical Equilibria (Chemical Engineering: Chemical Thermodynamics)
This book â€“ an in-depth examination of chemical thermodynamics â€“ is written for an audience of engineering undergraduates and Masters students in the disciplines of chemistry, physical chemistry, process engineering, materials, etc., and doctoral candidates in those disciplines. It will also be useful for researchers at fundamental- or applied-research labs dealing with issues in thermodynamics during the course of their work.
These audiences will, during their undergraduate degree, have received a grounding in general thermodynamics and chemical thermodynamics, which all science students are normally taught, and will therefore be familiar with the fundamentals, such as the principles and the basic functions of thermodynamics, and the handling of phase and chemical equilibrium states, essentially in an ideal medium, usually for fluid phases, in the absence of electrical fields and independently of any surface effects.
This set of books, which is positioned somewhere between an introduction to the subject and a research paper, offers a detailed examination of chemical thermodynamics that is necessary in the various disciplines relating to chemical or material sciences. It lays the groundwork necessary for students to go and read specialized publications in their different areas. It constitutes a series of reference books that touch on all of the concepts and methods. It discusses both scales of modeling: microscopic (by statistical thermodynamics) and macroscopic, and illustrates the link between them at every step. These models are then used in the study of solid, liquid and gaseous phases, either of pure substances or comprising several components.
