Editorial Reviews

This classic text-reference (1st ed., 1951; 5th ed., 1979) presents the basic principles of chemical thermodynamics in a straightforward way with many examples of the use of thermochemical calculations in solving a variety of mathematical problems. The present revised and updated edition includes the latest developments in experimental methods, new methods for estimating thermochemical data for both pure and alloy substances, new practical applications of thermochemical calculations, and updated tables of critically evaluated thermochemical data for inorganic substances and binary alloy systems.
