Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics – J. Richard Elliott – 1st Edition


In this , two leading experts and long-time instructors thoroughly explain therodynamics, taking the molecular perspective that working require (and competitive books often avoid). This new Second Edition contains extensive new coverage of today’s fast-growing biochemical engineering , notably biomass conversion to fuels and chemicals. It also presents many new MATLAB examples and tools to complement its previous usage of Excel and other .

The molecular perspective is represented by descriptions encompassing: the relation of kinetic to temperature; the origin and consequences of potentials; molecular acidity and basicity; used to incorporate molecular properties into molecular simulations; and the impact of molecular properties on macroscopic energy and . This text is distinctive in making molecular perspectives accessible at the introductory level and connecting properties with practical implications.
