DESCRIPTION
The exceptional quality of previous editions has been built upon to make the eleventh edition of Atkins' Physical Chemistry even more closely suited to the needs of both lecturers and students. Significant re-working of the text design makes this edition more readable for students, increasing the digestibility of the text whilst also forming a clean and effective mode of delivering the material which is more flexible for instructors to teach from. The expanded and redistributed maths support includes new 'Chemist's toolkits' which provide students with succinct reminders of mathematical concepts and techniques and the extensive learning support provided throughout the book includes new checklists of key concepts at the end of each topic, to reinforce the main take-home messages in each section. The coupling of the broad coverage of the subject with a structure and use of pedagogy that is even more innovative will ensure Atkins' Physical Chemistry remains the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Atkins' Physical Chemistry features: For registered adopters of the book: * Figures and tables from the book, in ready to download format * Tables of editable key equations * Instructor's Solutions Manual For students: * Web links to a range of additional physical chemistry resources on the internet * Group theory tables, available for downloading * Living graphs * Molecular modelling problems * Impact sections expanding on the 'Further Information' sections
REVIEWS
'I have used this book for more than 30 years. It is the best textbook of physical chemistry for year 2 and year 3 students in physical science departments, and for their teachers. I also use this textbook as reference book for teaching other courses and even for my research.' * Wuzong Zhou, St Andrews University * 'I really like the new approach. I like the checklist of concepts and the overarching "why you need to know this material" pointers at the start of each chapter. ' * Dr Darren Walsh, University of Nottingham * 'Once again the authors have succeeded in improving on the already very high standard of the previous edition. ' * Matthew Ryder, student, Heriot-Watt University * 'I like the division of the material into shorter "chapters". This helps to navigate through the material and break it up into "lecture-size" bites. This is a comprehensive and well-organised textbook that covers all the core physical chemistry. It is attractively presented with excellent online resources and makes a major effort to guide the student carefully through the more demanding mathematics and derivations.' * Professor Eleanor Campbell, Edinburgh University *

A frequent lecturer in the United States and throughout the world, he has held visiting professorships in France, Israel, Japan, China, and New Zealand. He was the founding chairman of the Committee on Chemistry Education of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and was a member of IUPAC's Physical and Biophysical Chemistry Division. Peter was the 2016 recipient of the American Chemical Society's Grady-Stack Award for science journalism. Julio de Paula is Professor of Chemistry, Lewis & Clark College. A native of Brazil, Professor de Paula received a B.A. degree in chemistry from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and a Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry from Yale University. His research activities encompass the areas of molecular spectroscopy, biophysical chemistry, and nanoscience. He has taught courses in general chemistry, physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry, instrumental analysis, and writing. James Keeler is Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, and Walters Fellow in Chemistry of Selwyn College, Cambridge. He took his first degree from the University of Oxford and continued there for doctoral research in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. He is Director of Teaching for undergraduate chemistry, and teaches courses covering a range of topics in physical and theoretical chemistry.
