This ebook in PDF, Phase Transformations (Chemical Engineering: Chemical Thermodynamics Book 5) is part of a set of ebooks which offers advanced students successive characterization tool phases, the study of all types of phase (gas, liquid, and solid, pure or multi-component), chemical and electrochemical equilibria, process engineering, and the properties of surfaces and phases of small sizes. Microscopic and macroscopic models are in turn covered with a constant correlation between the two scales. Particular attention has been given to the rigor of mathematical developments.

This 5th volume is devoted to the study of transformations and equilibria between phases. First- and second-order pure phase transformations are presented in detail, just as with the microscopic and macroscopic approaches of phase equilibria.

In the presentation of binary systems, the thermodynamics of demixing and azeotropy are discussed in detail and applied to strictly-regular solutions. Eutectic and peritectic points are examined, as well as the reactions that go with them. The study of ternary systems then introduces the concepts of ternary azeotropes and eutectics.  For every type of solid-liquid system, the interventions of definite compounds with or without congruent melting are taken into account. The particular properties of the different notable points of a diagram are also demonstrated.
