Introduction to Critical Phenomena in Fluids encompasses the fundamentals of this relatively young field, as well as applications in the fields of chemical engineering, analytical chemistry, and environmental remediation processing. The exercises in the text have been developed in a way that makes the book suitable for graduate courses in chemical engineering thermodynamics and physical chemistry.
