The exceptional quality of previous editions has been built upon to make the tenth edition of Atkins' Physical Chemistry even more closely suited to the needs of both students and lecturers. The text has been enhanced with additional learning features and maths support, and has been radically restructured into short focussed topics. An innovative use of pedagogy is combined with rigorous but accessible coverage of the subject to ensure Atkins' Physical Chemistry tenth edition remains the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry. New to this edition : significant reorganization of the material within each chapter into discrete 'topics' makes the text more readable for students and more flexible for instructors ; expanded maths support includes new 'Chemist's toolkits' which provide students with succinct reminders of mathematical concepts and techniques ; three questions at the beginning of each topic engage and focus the attention of the reader : 'Why do you need to know this material ?', 'What is the key idea ?', and 'What do you need to know already ?' ; New checklists of key concepts at the end of each topic reinforce the main take-home messages in each section.

Atkins' Physical Chemistry: Molecular Thermodynamics and Kinetics is designed for use on the second semester of a quantum-first physical chemistry course. Based on the hugely popular Atkins' Physical Chemistry, this volume approaches molecular thermodynamics with the assumption that students will have studied quantum mechanics in their first semester. The exceptional quality of previous editions has been built upon to make this new edition of Atkins' Physical Chemistry even more closely suited to the needs of both lecturers and students. Re-organised into discrete 'topics', the text is more flexible to teach from and more readable for students. Now in its eleventh edition, the text has been enhanced with additional learning features and maths support to demonstrate the absolute centrality of mathematics to physical chemistry. Increasing the digestibility of the text in this new approach, the reader is brought to a question, then the math is used to show how it can be answered and progress made. The expanded and redistributed maths support also includes new 'Chemist's toolkits' which provide students with succinct reminders of mathematical concepts and techniques right where they need them. Checklists of key concepts at the end of each topic add to the extensive learning support provided throughout the book, to reinforce the main take-home messages in each section. The coupling of the broad coverage of the subject with a structure and use of pedagogy that is even more innovative will ensure Atkins' Physical Chemistry remains the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry.

This major revision of the world's leading textbook of physical chemistry has maintained its tradition of accessibility but authority and has brought it thoroughly up to date. The new author team has introduced many innovations. There are new or rewritten chapters on the solid state, on molecular interactions, macromolecules, and electron transfer. Almost every chapter has at least one Box showing the relevance of the material to modern chemistry. All the chapters now conclude with a check list which includes definitions and key equations. The authors have paid special attention to the presentation of mathematical derivations and to the physical interpretation of equations. They have also ensured that the text is highly modular, so that it can be used in different sequences, either atoms first or thermodynamics first. The art program has been redrawn and extended, new Discussion questions have been added, and the Further Information sections have been recast to provide the necessary background in mathematics and physics. The text is fully geared to the web, with full media support. SUPPLEMENTS AND SUPPORT MATERIAL: 1. Web site featuring Living Graphs (about 150). Dynamic, interactive graphs that allow experimentation and hands-on learning. Web links to sources of data and other information, as referred to in the book. 2. Student's Solutions Manual containing worked solutions to half the end of chapter exercises and problems in the parenttext. 3. Instructor's Solutions Manual, FREE to adopters of the parent text, containing worked solutions to the other half of the end of chapter exercises and problems in the parent text. Contains a CD-ROM with all the illustrations from the text, for use in presentations. 4. MathCad/Mathematica supplement book with CD-ROM to take all living graphs further. NEW TO THIS EDITION: DT New co-author Julio de Paula, a biophysical chemist, strengthens the text's coverage of biologicalapplications. DT Margin notes provide help with mathematics just where it is needed. DT Boxes added to every chapter to cover biological applications, environmental, materials science and chemical engineering. Each box has two problems, and suggestions for further reading. DT Important equations and definitions added to the 'key concepts' section of every chapter. DT Microprojects used to be separate sections at end of every Part. These (most of them) have been integrated into the appropriate chapter's end-of-chapter exercises. DT More help with the mathematical development of derivations: marginal notes are provided, many derivations now include more steps (justifications), the section on mathematical techniques in Further Information sections has been rewritten, as has the Further Information section on concepts of physics. DT Fully integrated media support. The new feature of Living Graphs are flagged by an icon in the textbook, and marginal notes refer the reader to the weblinks to be found on the book's free web site. DT The chapters are modular so that they may be read in different orders for different courses. Road Maps are provided that suggest different routes through the text for the following types of course organizations: (a) thermodynamics first, (b) atoms first (quantum mechanics first). DT There is a separate section in of end-of-chapter exercises specifically for applications. DT End-of-chapter problems for which solutions are provided in the Student's Solutions Manual are now indicated by colour. MODERNIZATION DT More coverage of modern topics throughout the text. Some examples, by section of the book: PART 1: Illustrations of partial derivatives added Added Boxes, more practical and more biological applications PART 2: Chapter 14 includes computational chemistry Enhancements to quantum mechanics coverage: addition of materials science in Chapters 22 and 23 More modern spectroscopy, more computational chemistry Chapter 21: new chapter on molecular interactions Chapter 22 on macromolecules emphasizes polymers and biological polymers PART 3: Organized to make selective use easier (made more modular) Chapter 29: more modern treatment of electron transfer theory in solutions, biological systems, and solid state For a complete list of changes to the book since the last edition, see the web site at www.oup.com/pchem7

Atkins' Physical Chemistry is widely acknowledged by both students and lecturers around the globe to be the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry. Now in its eleventh edition, the text has been re-organised into discrete Topics, breaking down material to help you build confidence, and grouped into overarching Focuses, to show you the bigger picture. Enhanced with additional learning features and maths support, the text helps you learn more effectively with: detailed annotations of worked examples, broken into clear steps with sign-posted 'physical interpretation' sections: a new 'How is that done?' feature, which brings you to a question by leading you through the solution; 'Chemist's toolkits', which provide you with succinct reminders of mathematical concepts and techniques right where you need them. This volume covers quantum chemistry, spectroscopy, and statistical thermodynamics. Beginning with an examination of the structures and properties of individual atoms and molecules, the volume then goes on to show how strucutral data are used to predict and explain the bulk thermodynamics properties and the ways that intermolecular forces lead to the aggregation of molecules. This volume ends with a consideration of how molecular properties influence the properties of the resulting liquids and solids, and how the structure of these condensed phases are determined. -- From back cover.
