Chemical thermodynamics is not only alive and well
and making a valuable contribution to our understanding of the world
around us, but is helping to create a better world. As we stand on
the brink of an unprecedented increase in world population and pollution,
and possibly a significant change in climatic conditions, the applications
of chemical thermodynamics become particularly poignant. The essays
contained in this book are aimed not only at those working in the
area, but also at the general chemist, the prospective researcher,
and also those involved in funding chemical research. This volume
introduces the reader to twenty-seven topics in chemical thermodynamics,
each which illustrates a new and potentially useful area of study.
* 45 leading experts in the field contribute to 27 topics
within the field
* global authorship (spanning 12 countries)
* covers recent advances in the field and potential new areas for
