Chemical Thermodynamics for Industry presents the latest developments
in applied thermodynamics and highlights the role of thermodynamics
in the chemical industry. Written by leading experts in the field the
book covers the latest developments in traditional areas such as calorimetry
microcalorimetry transport properties crystallization adsorption electrolyte
systems and transport fuels. It highlights newly established areas such
as multiphase modelling reactive distillation non-equilibrium thermodynamics
and spectro-calorimetry. It also explores new ways of treating old technologies
as well as new and potentially important areas such as ionic liquids
new materials ab-initia quantum chemistry nano-particles polymer recycling
clathrates and the economic value of applied thermodynamics. This book
is aimed not only at those working in a specific area of chemical thermodynamics
but also at the general chemist the prospective researcher and those
involved in funding chemical research.
