Summary "Chemical Thermodynamics of Materials is a comprehensive introduction, examining both macroscopic and microscopic aspects of the subject. Aimed at students and researchers in Materials Science, Solid State Chemistry and Physics and Mineralogy, the book applies, the theory of thermodynamics to a broad range of materials, from metals, ceramics and other inorganic materials to geological materials." "Focusing on materials rather than the underlying mathematical concepts of the subject, this book will be ideal for the non-specialist requiring an introduction to the energetics and stability of materials. Macroscopic thermodynamic properties are linked to the underlying microscopic nature of the materials and trends in important properties are discussed. The later chapters discuss the main experimental and theoretical methods for deriving thermodynamic properties of materials with emphasis placed on methodology."--BOOK JACKET
