Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


In this newly revised 5th Edition of Chemical and Engineering Thermodynamics, Sandler presents a modern, applied approach to chemical thermodynamics and provides sufficient detail to develop a solid understanding of the key principles in the field. The text confronts current information on environmental and safety issues and how chemical engineering principles apply in biochemical engineering, bio-technology, polymers, and solid-state-processing. This book is appropriate for the undergraduate and graduate level courses.

Author Biography

STANLEY I. SANDLER is the H. B. du Pont Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware as well as professor of chemistry and biochemistry. He is also the founding director of its Center for Molecular and Engineering Thermodynamics. In addition to this book, Sandler is the author of 235 research papers and a monograph, and is the editor of a book on thermodynamic modeling and five conference proceedings. He earned his B.Ch.E. degree in 1962 from the City College of New York, and his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1966.
