"This admirable text provides a solid foundation in the fundamentals of physical chemistry including quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics/thermodynamics. The presentation assists the students in developing an intuitive understanding of the subjects as well as skill in quantitative manipulations. Particularly exciting is the treatment of larger molecular systems. With a firm but gentle hand, the student is led to several organized molecular assemblies including supramolecular systems and models of the origin of life. By learning of some of the most productive areas of current chemical research, the student may see the discipline as an active, young science in addition to its many accomplishments of earlier years. This text makes physical chemistry fun and demonstrates why so many find it a stimulating and rewarding profession."
Professor Edel Wasserman, President (1999) of the American Chemical Society

Principles of Physical Chemistry Understanding Molecules, Molecular Assemblies, Supramolecular Machines Hans Kuhn and Horst-Dieter Försterling Leading the reader from quantum chemistry to thermodynamics and on to the latest exciting developments, Principles of Physical Chemistry provides an introduction to the basic physical chemistry required to understand the behavior of single molecules and molecular assemblies. Adopting a modern approach, this book:
* uses the 'Particle in the Box' approach to quantum chemistry;
* discusses new techniques such as single molecule spectroscopy and handling single macromolecules, electron and proton tunneling, manipulating monolayers, self-assemblies, electron and proton pumping, light harvesting, oscillating chemical reactions, the origin of life;
* includes many applications, particularly in the life sciences.
Principles of Physical Chemistry is written for undergraduates taking a course in physical chemistry and it is equally addressed to chemists, biologists, chemical engineers, material scientists, and physicists.
