Introductory Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics – J.R. Elliott, C.T. Lira – 1st Edition

In this book, two leading experts and long-time instructors thoroughly explain therodynamics, taking the molecular perspective that working require (and competitive books often avoid). This new Second contains extensive new coverage of today’s fast-growing biochemical engineering applications, notably biomass conversion to fuels and chemicals. It also presents many new MATLAB examples and tools to complement its previous usage of Excel and other software.

The molecular perspective is represented by descriptions encompassing: the relation of kinetic energy to temperature; the origin and consequences of intermolecular potentials; molecular acidity and basicity; methods used to incorporate molecular properties into molecular simulations; and the impact of molecular properties on macroscopic energy and entropy. This text is distinctive in making molecular perspectives accessible at the level and connecting properties with practical implications.
