Physical Chemistry 4 Edition (English, Paperback, Silbey, Alberty, Bawendi)

A leading book for 80 years, Physical Chemistry 4e features exceptionally clear explanations of the concepts and methods of physical chemistry. The basic theory of chemistry is presented from the viewpoint of academic physical chemists, but the many applications of physical chemistry to practical are integrated throughout the book. The problems in the book are also a skillful blend of theory and practical applications.

Special Feature

  • Includes problems requiring Mathematica, which allows readers to compute and visualize simultaneously
  • Expanded coverage of the uses of statistical mechanics, nuclear magnetic relaxation, nanoscience, and oscillating chemical reactions
  • Increased emphasis on the thermodynamics and kinetics of biochemical reactions including the denaturation of proteins and nucleic acids
