on Experimental Thermodynamics

This
book has been prepared under the auspices of Commission I.2 on Thermodynamics
of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). The
authors of the 18 chapters are all recognized experts in the field.
The book gives an up-to-date presentation of equations of state for
fluids and fluid mixtures. All principal approaches for developing equations
of state are covered. The theoretical basis and practical use of each
type of equation is discussed and the strength and weaknesses of each
is addressed. Topics addressed include the virial equation of state,
cubic equations and generalized van der Waals equations, perturbation
theory, integral equations, corresponding stated and mixing rules. Special
attention is also devoted to associating fluids, polydisperse fluids,
polymer systems, self-assembled systems, ionic fluids and fluids near
critical points.

For post graduate researchers in
the fields of chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemistry
and physics.
