9780199697403: Atkins' Physical Chemistry

From Nylorac: The textbook is excellent and any good professor can teach physical chemistry from it. It is well organized, starting with some basic thermodynamics background and moving to more complicated thermo. The next section is kinetics, which is also presented not nearly as well as the thermo, but Atkins does a good job nonetheless. Spectroscopy and statistical mechanics come next and although they are not simple to understand, Atkins is concise in his presentation. The remainder of the book is additional material which may or may not be covered in a physical chemistry course. What should also be noted are the appendices at the end. Atkins includes very helpful supplemental material in mathematics which is needed for the thermodynamics discussion. The tables are somewhat lacking, but any good reference book can supplement this information. Overall,it contains much information and well presented .

His research activities encompass the areas of molecular spectroscopy, biophysical chemistry, and nanoscience. He has taught courses in general chemistry, physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry, instrumental analysis, and writing.

Review:

I really like the new approach. I like the checklist of concepts and the overarching "why you need to know this material" pointers at the start of each chapter. * Dr Darren Walsh, University of Nottingham * Once again the authors have succeeded in improving on the already very high standard of the previous edition. * Matthew Ryder, student, Heriot-Watt University * I like the division of the material into shorter "chapters". This helps to navigate through the material and break it up into "lecture-size" bites. * Professor Eleanor Campbell, Edinburgh University *
