Provided here is a revised edition of this well-received thermodynamics text, retaining the thorough coverage and organization that made the first edition so popular - now incorporating industrially relevant microcomputer programs, with which readers can perform sophisticated thermodynamic calculations, including calculations of the type they will encounter in industry. It provides a unified treatment of phase equilibria. The emphasis is on analysis and prediction of liquid-liquid and vapour-liquid equilibria, solubility of gases and solids in liquids, solubility of liquids and solids in gases and supercritical fluids, freezing point depressions and osmotic equilibria, as well as traditional vapour-liquid and chemical reaction equilibria. This edition contains many new illustrations and exercises.

A modern, accessible, and applied approach to chemical thermodynamics
Thermodynamics is central to the practice of chemical engineering, yet students sometimes feel that the discipline is too abstract while they are studying the subject.
By providing an applied and modern approach, Stanley Sandler s Chemical, Biochemical, and Engineering Thermodynamics, Fourth Edition helps students see the value and relevance of studying thermodynamics to all areas of chemical engineering, and gives them the depth of coverage they need to develop a solid understanding of the key principles in the field.
About the author STANLEY I. SANDLER is the H. B. du Pont Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware as well as professor of chemistry and biochemistry. He is also the founding director of its Center for Molecular and Engineering Thermodynamics. In addition to this book, Sandler is the author of 235 research papers and a monograph, and is the editor of a book on thermodynamic modeling and five conference proceedings. He earned the B.Ch.E. degree in 1962 from the City College of New York , and the Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1966.
