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.

Key Features
* Highlights applications of
thermodynamics to subjects that chemical engineering students will see
in later courses.
* Realistic problems introduce students to the
types of challenges they will encounter in industry and graduate
research.
* The Fourth Edition has been reorganized into 15
chapters, providing shorter chapters that introduce students to the
subject in more bite-sized pieces.
* Presents biochemical
examples, particularly in Chapters 11 and 12, and in all of Chapter 15
entitled "Biochemical Applications of Thermodynamics."
* Coverage
of environmental and safety applications of thermodynamics provides
course material useful for ABET accreditation.
* Includes a brief
introduction to the new field of product engineering in Chapter 12.
/> * Instructional objectives and nomenclature lists at the beginning of
each chapter provide useful study tools.
* Students can solve
problems using MATHCAD(r), MATLAB(r) and Visual Basic programs that
accompany this textbook.
* An accompanying CD features a 120-day
trial version of MATHCAD, as well as MATHCAD worksheets, an extensive
properties database, and Windows-friendly Visual Basic and MATLAB
programs for equation of state and UNIFAC calculations. (These
worksheets and programs are also available online at the book
website.)
* Also included on the CD are PDF files of important
data figures that students can download and print for use in solving
homework problems.

It's certainly not easy to read, but it is by far the most complete and trustworthy source on chemical thermodynamics I've come across so far. If one is patient enough to read through the initial chapters without skipping seemingly superfluous information, the later chapters turn out to be quite clear and not complicated at all.

The one thing I like most about this book is that it doesn't omit important deductions the way a lot other books tend to do almost automatically.

This book has truly changed my life. From the initial exposure to mass balances, to the journey into energy balances, and the brush with the derivation and use of maxwells equations, I never knew what my life was missing. This book tackles enigmatic concepts like entropy with venerable bravado, and clears away any remaining dogs of uncertainty for the reader to enjoy. Through Thermodynamics, anything is truly possible. This book has truly changed my life.

Unnecessarily complicated, you have to read through everything twice. There are much better books, like the one my professor wrote: The Thermodynamics of Phase and Reaction Equilibria We used both books in the course and Sandler's wasn't the popular one.
