Revised, updated, and rewritten where necessary, but keeping the clear writing and organizational style that made previous editions so popular, Elements of Environmental Engineering: Thermodynamics and Kinetics, Third Edition contains new problems and new examples that better illustrate theory. The new edition contains examples with practical flavor such as global warming, ozone layer depletion, nanotechnology, green chemistry, and green engineering. With detailed theoretical discussion and principles illuminated by numerical examples, this book fills the gaps in coverage of the principles and applications of kinetics and thermodynamics in environmental engineering and science. New topics covered include: Green Chemistry and Engineering Biological Processes Life Cycle Analysis Global Climate Change The author discusses the applications of thermodynamics and kinetics and delineates the distribution of pollutants and the interrelationships between them. His demonstration of the theoretical foundations of chemical property estimations gives students an in depth understanding of the limitations of thermodynamics and kinetics as applied to environmental fate and transport modeling and separation processes for waste treatment. His treatment of the material underlines the multidisciplinary nature of environmental engineering. This book is unusual in environmental engineering since it deals exclusively with the applications of chemical thermodynamics and kinetics in environmental processes. The book’s multimedia approach to fate and transport modeling and in pollution control design options provides a science and engineering treatment of environmental problems.

Unlike earlier books in this series, this review describes the selection of chemical thermodynamic data for species of two elements, neptunium and plutonium. Although this came about more by circumstance than design, it has allowed for a more consistent approach to chemical interpretation than might have occurred in two separate treatments. It has also drawn attention to cases where the available data do not show expected parallels, and where further work may be useful to confirm or refute apparent differences in the behaviour of neptunium and plutonium.

A comprehensive introduction, examining both macroscopic and microscopic aspects of the subject, the book applies the theory of thermodynamics to a broad range of materials; from metals, ceramics and other inorganic materials to geological materials. Focusing on materials rather than the underlying mathematical concepts of the subject, this book will be ideal for the non-specialist requiring an introduction to the energetics and stability of materials. Macroscopic thermodynamic properties are linked to the underlying miscroscopic nature of the materials and trends in important properties are discussed. A unique approach covering both macroscopic and microscopic aspects of the subject Authors have worldwide reputations in this area Fills a gap in the market by featuring a wide range of real up-to-date examples and covering a large amount of materials

In this volume (volume 1), the fundamental aspects of thermodynamics are presented. The first & second laws of thermodynamics are illustrated. The need to define thermodynamic temperature & the nature of entropy are explained. The book explores the meaning of auxiliary thermodynamic functions, the origin, usefulness & use of partial molar quantities. Gaseous systems & phase equilibrium, in systems where chemical reactions do not take place, are described In volume 2, the tools necessary to study & understand systems in which chemical reactions can take place are developed. The variables of reaction are the keys to understanding. Criteria for chemical equilibrium are established. It is shown how chemical reactions can provide work, as for example, in batteries. For complex systems, the number of independent reactions & their nature have to be determined systematically. The effect of external factors on chemical equilibria is analyzed & illustrated. The formalism necessary to study ideal & real solutions is provided. The various standard states in use & the corresponding activity coefficients are clearly defined. The statistical aspect of thermodynamics is best understood once students are familiar with the rest of the book, for this reason, is treated in the last chapter. Both volumes comply with the latest IUPC recommendations for symbols. Most of the specific mathematical tools are presented either directly in the text if they are used mostly in one chapter, while the others are included in an appendix. A primarily phenomenological approach has been selected to keep chemical thermodynamics easily accessible to beginners. Intermediate steps in the derivations have been kept to enhance the clarity of the presentation. A large number of problems, most of them original, will with complete solutions, are provided. They give this textbook a great pedagogical value. This book is primarily destined to students, graduate students & practicing scientists in the fields of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering & Material Sciences.

This volume in the series Chemical Thermodynamics provides a comprehensive review and critical evaluation of experimental data available for the chemical thermodynamics of inorganic compounds and aqueous species and complexes of technetium. The objective of the reviews in the series Chemical Thermodynamics is to provide a set of reliable thermodynamic data that can be used to describe the behaviour of the elements reviewed under conditions relevant for radioactive waste disposal systems and various geochemical environments. Data and their uncertainty limits are recommended for the formation energies, enthalpies and entropies of selected aqueous complexes, solids and gaseous compounds containing technetium. The data are internally consistent and compatible with the CODATA Key Values, as well as with the data in the earlier volumes in the series Chemical Thermodynamics. The book contains a detailed discussion of the selection procedures used

An important part of inorganic chemistry is the study of the behaviour of chemical elements and their compounds. Thermodynamics provides a quantitative language to describe this, and Dr Johnson's 1982 book is concerned with the theoretical explanations that become possible after the translation into thermodynamic language has taken place.

The laws of thermodynamics are amongst the most assured and wide-ranging of all scientific laws. They do not pretend to explain any observation in molecular terms but, by showing the necessary relationships between different physical properties, they reduce otherwise disconnected results to compact order, and predict new effects. This classic title, first published in 1957, is a systematic exposition of principles, with examples of applications, especially to changes of places and the conditions for stability. In all this entropy is a key concept.
