Physical Chemistry Eighth Edition by Peter Atkins and Julio De Paula
In This Edition:The text is still divided into three parts, but material has been moved between chapters and the chapters have been reorganized.
they have responded to the shift in emphasis away from classical thermodynamics by combining several chapters in Part 1 (Equilibrium), bearing in mind that some of the material will already have been covered in earlier courses.
they no longer make a distinction between ‘concepts’ and ‘machinery’, and as a result they have provided a more compact presentation of thermodynamics with less articial divisions between the approaches.
Similarly, equilibrium electrochemistry now nds a home within the chapter on chemical equilibrium, where space has been made by reducing the discussion of acids and bases.
In Part 2 (Structure) the principal changes are within the chapters, where we have sought to bring into the discussion contemporary techniques of spectroscopy and approaches to computational
In recognition of the major role that physical chemistry plays in materials science, they have a short sequence of chapters on materials, which deal respectively with hard and soft matter.
Moreover, they have introduced concepts of nanoscience throughout much of Part 2.
Part 3 has lost its chapter on dynamic electrochemistry, but not the material.
They have discarded the Boxes of earlier editions. They have been replaced by more fully integrated and extensive Impact sections, which show how physical chemistry is applied to biology, materials, and the environment.
The concern expressed in the seventh edition about the level of mathematical ability has not Thus, they give more help with the development of equations, motivate them, justify them, and comment on the steps.
they have kept in mind the struggling student, and have tried to provide help at every turn.
