Here is a selection of books from the Gordon Library collection:

- Chemical Reaction Equilibrium Theory byCall Number: QD 503 .J67 2015ISBN: 9781495179655Publication Date: 2015-11-01This book discusses three different models related to deriving chemical reaction equilibrium equations: dynamic, static, and Van't Hoff equilibrium box model. It also presents derivation of the Nernst equation for calculating cell voltage, liquid phase reaction equilibrium theory and derivations of the liquid phase equilibrium constant.
- Physical Chemistry from a Different Angle byCall Number: eBookISBN: 9783319156668Publication Date: 2015-12-18Learning the basics of physical chemistry with a unique, innovative approach. Georg Job and Regina Rueffler introduce readers to an almost intuitive understanding of the two fundamental concepts, chemical potential and entropy. Avoiding complex mathematics, these concepts are illustrated with the help of numerous demonstration experiments. Using these concepts, the subjects of chemical equilibria, kinetics and electrochemistry are presented at an undergraduate level. The basic quantities and equations necessary for the qualitative and quantitative description of chemical transformations are introduced by using everyday experiences and particularly more than one hundred illustrative experiments, many presented online as videos. These are in turn supplemented by nearly 400 figures, and by learning objectives for each chapter.
- Chemical Equilibria byCall Number: eBookISBN: 9780429429897Publication Date: 2018-11-15Concepts, procedures and programs described in this book make it possible for readers to solve both simple and complex equilibria problems quickly and easily and to visualize results in both numerical and graphical forms. They allow the user to calculate concentrations of reactants and products for both simple and complicated situations. The user can spend less time doing calculations and more time thinking about what the results mean in terms of a larger problem in which she or he may be interested.
- Chemical Equilibria byCall Number: eBookISBN: 9781119178569Publication Date: 2015-10-27The book offers advanced students, in 7 volumes, successively characterization tools phases, the study of all types of phase, liquid, gas and solid, pure or multi-component, process engineering, chemical and electrochemical equilibria, the properties of surfaces and phases of small sizes. Macroscopic and microscopic models are in turn covered with a constant correlation between the two scales. Particular attention was given to the rigor of mathematical developments. The proposed project aims to give readers the ability to read highly specialized publications based on a more general presentation of the different fields of chemical thermodynamics. Consistency is ensured between the basic concepts and applications. So we find, in the same work, the tools, their use and comparison, for a more general macroscopic description and a microscopic description of a phase.
