Chemical, Biochemical, and Engineering Thermodynamics – Stanley I. Sandler – 4th Edition


A modern, accessible, and applied approach to Thermodynamics is central to the practice of chemical engineering, yet students sometimes feel that the discipline is too abstract while they are studying the subject.

By providing an applied and modern approach, Stanley Sandler’s Chemical, Biochemical, and Engineering Thermodynamics, Fourth Edition helps students see the value and relevance of studying thermodynamics to all areas of chemical engineering, and gives them the depth of coverage they need to develop a solid understanding of the key principles in the field.

Key Features Highlights applications of thermodynamics to subjects that chemical engineering students will see in later courses. Realistic introduce students to the types of challenges they will encounter in industry and graduate research.
