This new edition of Robert G. Mortimer's Physical Chemistry has been thoroughly revised for use in a full year course in modern physical chemistry. In this edition, Mortimer has included recent developments in the theories of chemical reaction kinetics and molecular quantum mechanics, as well as in the experimental study of extremely rapid chemical reactions. While Mortimer has made substantial improvements in the selection and updating of topics, he has retained the clarity of presentation, the integration of description and theory, and the level of rigor that made the first edition so successful.
* Emphasizes clarity; every aspect of the first edition has been examined and revised as needed to make the principles and applications of physical chemistry as clear as possible.
* Proceeds from fundamental principles or postulates and shows how the consequences
of these principles and postulates apply to the chemical and physical phenomena being studied.
* Encourages the student not only to know
the applications in physical chemistry but to understand where they come from.
* Treats all topics relevant to undergraduate physical chemistry.

This is the textbook that I would like to have if I were now an undergraduate student of physical chemistry. It tries to satisfy the need of a careful student who wants to ask "where does that equation of that concept come from?" The book emphasizes the development of the applications of physical chemistry from fundamental principles and postulates. This is a textbook for a standard two-semester physical chemistry course for chemists and chemical engineers in the junior or senior year. It offers an approach that is slightly different from other textbooks for this course in that it begins with carefully stated fundamental principles and carefully presents the applications of these principles.About the Author:
