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]

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.

This book began as a program of self-education. While teaching under graduate physical chemistry, I became progressively more dissatisfied with my approach to chemical kinetics. The solution to my problem was to write a detailed set of lecture notes which covered more material, in greater depth, than could be presented in undergraduate physical chemistry. These notes are the foundation upon which this book is built. My background led me to view chemical kinetics as closely related to transport phenomena. While the relationship of these topics is well known, it is often ignored, except for brief discussions of irreversible thermody namics. In fact, the physics underlying such apparently dissimilar processes as reaction and energy transfer is not so very different. The intermolecular potential is to transport what the potential-energy surface is to reactivity. Instead of beginning the sections devoted to chemical kinetics with a discussion of various theories, I have chosen to treat phenomenology and mechanism first. In this way the essential unity of kinetic arguments, whether applied to gas-phase or solution-phase reaction, can be emphasized. Theories of rate constants and of chemical dynamics are treated last, so that their strengths and weaknesses may be more clearly highlighted. The book is designed for students in their senior year or first year of graduate school. A year of undergraduate physical chemistry is essential preparation. While further exposure to chemical thermodynamics, statistical thermodynamics, or molecular spectroscopy is an asset, it is not necessary.

This comprehensive textbook, now in its second edition, is mainly written as per the latest syllabi of physical chemistry of all the leading universities of India as well as the new syllabus recommended by the UGC. This thoroughly revised and updated edition covers the principal areas of physical chemistry, such as thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, molecular spectroscopy, chemical kinetics, electrochemistry and nanotechnology. In a methodical and accessible style, the book discusses classical, irreversible and statistical thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, and describes macroscopic chemical systems, steady states and thermodynamics at a molecular level. It elaborates the underlying principles of quantum mechanics, molecular spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography and solid state chemistry along with their applications. The book explains various instrumentation techniques such as potentiometry, polarography, voltammetry, conductometry and coulometry. It also describes kinetics, rate laws and chemical processes at the electrodes. In addition, the text deals with chemistry of corrosion and nanomaterials. This text is primarily designed for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of chemistry (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) for their course in physical chemistry. Key Features • Gives a thorough treatment to ensure a solid grasp of the material. • Presents a large number of figures and diagrams that help amplify key concepts. • Contains several worked-out examples for better understanding of the subject matter. • Provides numerous chapter-end exercises to foster conceptual understanding.

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.

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
