The ideal course companion, Elements of Physical Chemistry is written specifically with the needs of undergraduate students in mind, and provides extensive mathematical and pedagogical support while remaining concise and accessible.

For the seventh edition of this much-loved text, the material has been reorganized into short Topics, which are grouped into thematic Focus sections to make the text more digestible for students, and more flexible for lecturers to teach from. At the beginning of each topic, three questions are posed, emphasizing why it is important, what the key idea is, and what the student should already know.

Throughout the text, equations are clearly labeled and annotated, and detailed 'justification' boxes are provided to help students understand the crucial mathematics which underpins physical chemistry. Furthermore, Chemist's Toolkits provide succinct reminders of key mathematical techniques exactly where they are needed in the text. Frequent worked examples, in addition to self-test questions and end-of-focus exercises, help students to gain confidence and experience in solving problems. This diverse suite of pedagogical features, alongside an appealing design and layout, make Elements of Physical Chemistry the ideal course text for those studying this core branch of chemistry for the first time.

Industry Reviews

`The breaking down of chapters into topics is great, particularly when the book is used for quick reference' Tom Martin, chemistry student at Loughborough University `The style of writing makes the material readily accessible to undergraduates of all levels of chemistry capability. Physical Chemistry is notoriously mathematical in nature and as such any good text on this subject must carry readers of varying ability in mathematics.' Dr Subrayal M Reddy, University of Surrey `There are no other textbooks that serve the purposes of my physical chemistry courses so well.' Dr Peter B Karadakov, University of York `As always the writing style is clear and elegant and the numerical examples are pertinent and helpful.' Dr Mike Lyons, Trinity College Dublin
