About this Textbook

This textbook introduces the molecular side of physical chemistry. It offers students and practitioners a new approach to the subject by presenting numerous applications and solved problems that illustrate the concepts introduced for varied and complex technical situations. The book offers a balance between theory, tools, and practical applications. The text aims to be a practical manual for solving engineering problems in industries where processes depend on the chemical composition and physical properties of matter.
The book is organized into three main topics: (I) the molecular structure of matter, (II) molecular models in thermodynamics, and (III) transport phenomena and mechanisms. Part I presents methods of analysis of the molecular behavior in a given system, while the following parts use these methods to study the equilibrium states of a material system and to analyze the processes that can take place when the system is in a state of non-equilibrium, in particular the transport phenomena. 
Molecular Physical Chemistry for Engineering Applications is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in physical chemistry for engineers, applied physical chemistry, transport phenomena, colloidal chemistry, and transport/transfer processes. The book will also be a valuable reference guide for engineers, technicians, and scientists working in industry.

  • Offers modeling techniques and tools for solving exercises and practical cases; 
  • Provides solutions and conclusions so students can follow results more closely; 
  • Step-by-step problem solving enables students to understand how to approach complex issues.

About the authors

Dr. Florin Emilian Danes is University Professor at École Polytechnique de l'Université de Nantes, also known as Polytech Nantes, the graduate school of engineering of the University of Nantes. He was previously a Professor at the Politehnica University of Bucharest (UPB). He studied chemical engineering at UPB, and received graduate degrees from the University of Halle and Grenoble Institute of Technology. Dr. Danes research focuses on predicting the thermodynamic characteristics of compounds in coupled interfacial transfer of mass, electricity and heat for industrial separations, and producing thermo-conducting electro-insulating polymers. 
Dr. Silvia Danes is a chemical engineer and received her doctorate in Processes and Devices from Politehnica University of Bucharest. Dr. Danes research focuses on the thermodynamics of separation processes of complex compounds from soluble mineral composites using extraction, ionic exchange, and precipitation. She has also studied thermodynamics in electrolyte solution, power sources, and corrosion processes. 
Dr. Valeria Petrescu is a Professor of Physical Chemistry at Politehnica University of Bucharest. He is a graduate of University of Bucharest, and received his doctorate from the Centre of Physical Chemistry of the Romanian Academy. Dr. Petrescu’s research focuses on the electrochemistry of inorganic compounds, thermodynamics of melted/aqueous electrolytes, fuel cells, and polarization of porous electrodes.
Dr. Eleonora-Mihaela Ungureanu is a Professor in the Department of Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, and Electrochemistry at Politehnica University of Bucharest, where she is also PhD coordinator for the engineering doctoral program. Dr. Ungureanu’s research specializes on the electrochemistry of organic compounds, and her research interests include electrochemical processes in organic solvents, modified electrodes, and carbon nanotubes.
