About this book

For two-semester, graduate-level courses in Chemical Thermodynamics.Rigorous and comprehensive in approach, this text explores the theory, concepts and applications of classical thermodynamics and introduces a molecular-level perspective of constitutive property models for both electrolyte and non-electrolyte mixtures. Extensive examples and problems provide ample opportunities for connecting theory with applications.
