This book is designed for a one-semester course, for undergraduates, not necessarily chemistry majors, who need to know something about physical chemistry. The emphasis is not on mathematical rigor, but subtleties and conceptual difficulties are not hidden. It covers the essential topics in physical chemistry, including the state of matter, thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, phase and chemical equilibria, introduction to quantum theory, and molecular spectroscopy. Supplementary materials are available upon request for all instructors who adopt this book as a course text. Please send your request to [email protected]

This is a unique book with a different aim from other books on the subject. The idea is to provide readers with the “big picture” first, yet at a level that helps further the study of physical chemistry. The text covers all the important topics in physical chemistry — thermodynamics, statistical thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, and chemical kinetics — staying rigorously close to the basic theory, using appropriate mathematics but avoiding long derivations. Moreover, the book is supplemented by a CD-ROM to make it more comprehensive, interactive and useful for a wider audience. The CD-ROM contains examples, extended discussion, exercises and details of important derivations to reinforce understanding of physical chemistry.

Chang's newest text is intended for use in a one-semester introductory course in physical chemistry for students of the biosciences. The author emphasizes the understanding of physical concepts rather than focussing on precise mathematical development or on actual experimental details. Only basic skills of differential and integral calculus are required to understand the equations. The extensive array of end of chapter problems have both physicochemical and biological applications, and a detailed Solutions Manual is available.

"Physical Chemistry in Depth" is not a stand-alone text, but complements the text of any standard textbook on "Physical Chemistry" into depth having in mind to provide profound understanding of some of the topics presented in these textbooks. Standard textbooks in Physical Chemistry start with thermodynamics, deal with kinetics, structure of matter, etc. The "Physical Chemistry in Depth" follows this adjustment, but adds chapters that are treated traditionally in ordinary textbooks inadequately, e.g., general scaling laws, the graphlike structure of matter, and cross connections between the individual disciplines of Physical Chemistry. Admittedly, the text is loaded with some mathematics, which is a prerequisite to thoroughly understand the topics presented here. However, the mathematics needed is explained at a really low level so that no additional mathematical textbook is needed.

The book is a short primer on chemical reaction rates based on a six-lecture first-year undergraduate course taught by the author at the University of Oxford. The book explores the various factors that determine how fast or slowly a chemical reaction proceeds and describes a variety of experimental methods for measuring reaction rates. The link between the reaction rate and the sequence of steps that makes up the reaction mechanism is also investigated. Chemical reaction rates is a core topic in all undergraduate chemistry courses.

Textbook of Physical Chemistry, together with the companion books on organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry, meets the complete requirements of undergraduate students of chemistry across India. In a book comprising all the classical topics which span physical chemistry including chemical kinetics, electrochemistry and thermodynamics among others, uniformity in the depth of coverage of each topic is not easy to attain in view of the disjointed pace of growth of each discipline. Nevertheless, care has been taken to ensure that the material in this book will sustain the interest of students and motivate them to learn physical chemistry. In order to aid students, every chapter contains the Objectives at the beginning and Key Points at the end. Various aspects of physical chemistry are dealt with in a lucid manner and interesting related matter is highlighted in boxes. The derivations are given in a comprehensible manner. Since physical chemistry involves numericals, several worked examples complement the text. The exercises at the end of each chapter, in particular, will be extremely valuable to sharpen the problem-solving skills and direct the student towards appreciating the nuances of physical chemistry.

Physical Chemistry for Engineering and Applied Sciences is the product of over 30 years of teaching first-year Physical Chemistry as part of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto. Designed to be as rigorous as compatible with a first-year student’s ability to understand, the text presents detailed step-by-step derivations of the equations that permit the student to follow the underlying logic and, of equal importance, to appreciate any simplifying assumptions made or mathematical tricks employed. In addition to the 600 exercises and end-of-chapter problems, the text is rich in worked non-trivial examples, many of which are designed to be inspiring and thought-provoking. Step-by-step derivation of all equations enables the student to smoothly follow the derivation by sight, and can be understood relatively easily by students with moderate skills and backgrounds in mathematics. Clear and accessible, Physical Chemistry for Engineering and Applied Sciences includes: The answers to all of the 112 worked examples, 99 exercises following many of the worked examples, and 496 end-of-chapter problems Topics not normally seen in introductory physical chemistry textbooks (ionic reaction rates, activities and activity coefficients) or not regularly explained in much detail (electrochemistry, chemical kinetics), with an eye on industrial applications Special appendices that provide detailed explanations of basic integration and natural logarithms for students lacking a background in integral calculus An in-depth chapter on electrochemistry, in which activities and activity coefficients are used extensively, as required for accurate calculations
