Chemical Thermodynamics: Basic Concepts and Methodsby Robert M. Rosenberg
Synopses & Reviews
A new edition of the classic treatment of chemical thermodynamics
For more than fifty years, this critically acclaimed and highly influential publication has been the textbook of choice in the field of chemical thermodynamics. This Seventh Edition not only brings the text thoroughly up to date with the latest developments and applications, it also offers new features that better enable students to master key concepts and apply them in practice.
While thoroughly revised and updated, the text's fundamental objectives remain unchanged: to present the foundations and interrelationships of thermodynamics and to enable students to apply basic concepts in solving problems typically encountered by chemists, biologists, geologists, and materials scientists. Moreover, the text continues to maintain a logical unity throughout by focusing on the laws of classical thermodynamics and applications to gases, solutions, phase equilibria, and chemical equilibria.
Designed to meet the needs of today's students and instructors, the text offers:
Updated to reflect the latest applications in science and engineering, Chemical Thermo-dynamics continues to set the standard in its field.
Book News Annotation:
Logically organized and full of worked examples, this edition has also been fully updated to reflect current theories, practice and research. Building on the example set by Klotz (late chemical thermodynamics, Northwestern U.), Rosenberg (chemistry emeritus, Lawrence U.) explains the mathematics involved, then covers the first through third laws of thermodynamics, enthalpy, heat capacity, applications of the first law to gases, equilibrium and spontaneity for systems of constant temperature, the Gibbs function and the Planck function, the thermodynamics of systems of variable composition, applications of the Gibbs function to chemical changes, the phase rule, the ideal solution, determination of nonelectrolyte activities and excess Gibbs functions from experimental data, calculation of partial molar quantities and excess molar quantities from experimental data, strong electrolytes, changes for Gibbs function for processes in solutions, systems subject to a gravitational or a centrifugal field and estimation of thermodynamic quantities.

About the Author
Irving M. Klotz, PhD, deceased, was a noted expert in chemical thermodynamics and the physical chemistry of proteins. Dr. Klotz was elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences in 1968 and the National Academy of Sciences in 1970. He joined the Northwestern faculty in 1940 and retired in 1986. Dr. Klotz was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine in 1971 and published more than 200 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals. He wrote Chemical Thermodynamics: Basic Theory and Methods in 1950. Dr. Rosenberg began working with him as coauthor with the third edition. ROBERT M. ROSENBERG, PhD, is Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at Lawrence University and an Adjunct Professor of Chemistry at Northwestern University.
