Physical Chemistry – Peter Atkins, Julio de Paula – 9th Edition


With its modern emphasis on the molecular view of , its wealth of contemporary applications, vivid full-color presentation, and dynamic new media tools, the thoroughly revised new edition is again the most modern, most effective full-length available for the classroom.

Available in Split Volumes
For maximum flexibility in your physical chemistry course, this text is now offered as a traditional text or in two volumes.

Volume 1: and Kinetics; ISBN 1-4292-3127-0
Volume 2: Quantum Chemistry, Spectroscopy, and Thermodynamics; ISBN 1-4292-3126-2

This volume features a greater emphasis on the molecular view of physical chemistry and a move away from classical thermodynamics. It offers greater explanation and support in which remains an intrinsic part of physical chemistry.
