Solution Thermodynamics and Its Application to Aqueous Solutions : A Differential Approach (Paperback)
about this item
Solution Thermodynamics and its Application to Aqueous Solutions, Second Edition introduces a differential approach to solution thermodynamics and applies it to the study of aqueous solutions. This valuable approach reveals the molecular processes in solutions in greater depth than that gained by spectroscopic and other methods. The book clarifies what a hydrophobe, or a hydrophile, and in turn, an amphiphile, does to H2O. By applying the same methodology to ions that have been ranked by the Hofmeister series , the author shows that the kosmotropes are either hydrophobes or hydration centres, and that chaotropes are hydrophiles. This unique approach and important updates make the new edition a "must-have" reference for those active in solution chemistry.
- Unique differential approach to solution thermodynamics allows for experimental evaluation of the intermolecular interaction
- Incorporates research findings from over 40 articles published since the previous edition
- Numerical or graphical evaluation and direct experimental determination of third derivatives, enthalpic and volumetric AL-AL interactions and amphiphiles are new to this edition
- Features new chapters on spectroscopic study in aqueous solutions as well as environmentally friendly and hostile water aqueous solutions
