Following in the wake of Chang’s two other popular physical chemistry textbooks (Physical Chemistry for the Biosciences and Physical Chemistry for the Chemical and Biological Sciences), this new title introduces laser spectroscopist Jay Thoman (Williams College) as co-author. This complete new text has been extensively revised both in scope and level.

Targeted to a mainstream physical chemistry course Physical Chemistry for the Chemical Sciences (PDF) includes comprehensively revised chapters on quantum mechanics and spectroscopy, many new chapter-ending problems, and revised references, while biological topics have been largely relegated to the prior two textbooks. Other topics included are the law of corresponding states, the meaning of entropy, the Joule-Thomson effect, multiple equilibria and coupled reactions, and bioluminescence and chemiluminescence and. One way to evaluate the level of this new textbook is that students who have used it will be well equipped for their GRE exams in the subject. Clear writing and careful pedagogy throughout combine to make this an excellent choice for your physical chemistry course.
