Physical Chemistry – Peter Atkins, Julio de Paula – 7th Edition


With its modern emphasis on the molecular view of physical chemistry, its wealth of contemporary applications (in the new “Impact on” features), vivid full-color presentation, and dynamic new media tools, the thoroughly revised new edition is again the most modern, most effective full-length textbook available for the physical chemistry classroom.

This book provides the reader with the subject of physical chemistry as characterized by three main approaches: the discussion of bulk properties in terms of thermodynamics, the use of spectroscopy to explore the behaviour of individual atoms and molecules, and the analysis of the rates and mechanisms of chemical change.
