Free thermodynamics textbook available for download

Dear CHEMED-L Colleagues,

As some of you may be aware, I'm the author of "Thermodynamics and
Chemistry," a textbook designed for a one-semester course of classical
thermodynamics.  The first edition was published in 2001 by Prentice
Hall.

I have now finished a revised and expanded second edition in the form of
a PDF file that I invite you to download WITHOUT CHARGE OR OBLIGATION
OF ANY KIND.

The textbook revision has been a labor of love.  If you teach physical
chemistry, or have an interest in thermodynamics, I hope you will find
the new edition useful.  I'm making it free of charge as an antidote to
the exorbitant cost of commercially-published textbooks.  In return, I
ask for nothing except perhaps suggestions for improvements of future
versions.

To download the book, please go to the following Web page hosted by the
University of Maryland Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry:

Sincerely,

Howard DeVoe
Associate Professor Emeritus

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
