Atkins’ Physical chemistry 9th Edition Pdf Book Description:

There are numerous features in this edition that are designed to make learning physical chemistry more effective and more enjoyable. One of the problems that make the subject daunting is the sheer amount of information: we have introduced several devices for organizing the material: see Organizing the information. We appreciate that mathematics is often troublesome, and therefore have taken care to give help with this enormously important aspect of physical chemistry: see Mathematics support. Problem solving especially, ‘where do I start?’ is often a challenge, and we have done our best to help overcome this first hurdle: see Problem solving. Finally, the web is an extraordinary resource, but it is necessary to know where to start, or where to go for a particular piece of information; we have tried to indicate the right direction: see About the Book Companion Site. The following paragraphs explain the features in more detail. We have followed our usual tradition in that this new edition of the text is yet another thorough update of the content and its presentation. Our goal is to keep the book flexible to use, accessible to students, broad in scope, and authoritative, without adding bulk. However, it should always be borne in mind that much of the bulk arises from the numerous pedagogical features that we include (such as Worked examples, Checklists of key equations, and the Resource section), not necessarily from density of information.

The text is still divided into three parts, but material has been moved between chapters and the chapters themselves have been reorganized. We continue to respond to the cautious 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. For example, material on phase diagrams no longer has its own chapter but is now distributed between Chapters 4 (Physical transformation of pure substances) and 5 (Simple mixtures). New Impact sections highlight the application of principles of thermodynamics to materials science, an area of growing interest to chemists. In Part 2 (Structure) the chapters have been updated with a discussion of contemporary techniques of materials science including nanoscience and spectroscopy. We have also paid more attention to computational chemistry, and have revised the coverage of this topic in Chapter 10. Part 3 has lost chapters dedicated to kinetics of complex reactions and surface processes, but not the material, which we regard as highly important in a contemporary context. To make the material more readily accessible within the context of courses, descriptions of polymerization, photochemistry, and enzyme- and surface catalysed reactions are now part of Chapters 21 (The rates of chemical reactions) and 22 (Reaction dynamics) already familiar to readers of the text and a new chapter, Chapter 23, on Catalysis
