Gordon Barrow, former Professor of Chemistry at Case Institute of Technology, has provided a clear yet not overly sophisticated mathematical treatment of physical chemistry, a subject many undergraduate chemistry majors consider a "difficult" subject. Readers who approach the subject before they have developed much mathematical ability will be able to handle this introduction to physical chemistry. For those students who can go on immediately to more detailed mathematical treatments a selection of reference books and articles is given at the end of most chapters. The book begins with chapters on the Properties of Gases, The Kinetic-Molecular Theory of Gases, and an Introduction to Atomic and Molecular Structure. Later chapters include discussion of the laws of thermodynamics; entropy, free energy, and chemical equilibria; the theory and nature of chemical bonding; rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions; phase equilibria; the colligative properties of matter, and much more. This text is an excellent supplement for those encountering physical chemistry for the first time and a great review for graduate students trying to remember what they forgot. Second edition 1966
