4. Chemistry: Principles and Reactions by William L. Masterton, Cecile N. Hurley, Hardcover: 756 pages, Publisher: Brooks Cole
Appropriate for either a one- or two-semester course, this Fifth Edition is three hundred pages shorter than most general chemistry texts and lives up to its long-standing reputation as THE student-oriented text. Though This textbook is shorter in length than most other General Chemistry books, it is not lower in level and with the addition of the large volume of content provided by the revolutionary General Chemistry Interactive 3.0 CD-ROM that is included with every copy, it has a depth and breadth rivaling much longer books.
5. The Principles of Chemical Equilibrium : With Applications in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering by K. G. Denbigh, Paperback: 516 pages, Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This is the fourth edition of an established textbook of chemical thermodynamics used by university and technical college students in their final years of a chemistry and chemical engineering degree course. The text covers the same ground as previous editions, presenting the general theory of chemical equilibrium, including its statistical development, and illustrating its many applications in the laboratory and industry. This edition has been extensively revised in the light of recent contributions to the literature. Many new references have been added; the re-writing of certain passages, especially of those concerning the statistical interpretation of entropy and the present understanding of order-disorder transitions, also reflects changes of emphasis.
