The Yaws Handbook of Thermodynamic Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals is the most comprehensive and thorough volume ever written on the thermodynamic properties of hydrocarbons and chemicals. Carl Yaws is the world's foremost authority on vapor pressure and the properties of chemicals and he again proves it in this follow up to his important work published in 2005 by GPC Books, The Yaws' Handbook of Physical Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals. Covering the thermodynamic properties of hydrocarbons and chemicals, this volume covers the spectrum, including chapters on the heat capacity and entropy of gas, the heat capacity and entropy of solids, the heat capacity of liquids, the entropy of formation and many other topics. Including more than 12,800 organic and inorganic chemicals, this resourceful work covers C1 to C100 organics and Ac to Zr inorganics collected together in one volume, making it most useful for any chemical engineer's library. Not just useful for the scientist in the lab or the student, this volume provides valuable information for the engineer working in the field. The design of heat exchangers and other equipment for heating or cooling substances to temperatures necessary in process applications requires knowledge of heat capacity, covered in the first portion of the book. The heat effects of chemical reactions are ascertained from enthalpy of formation, covered in chapter four. Other chapters cover the Helmholtz energy of formation, the Gibbs energy of formation, internal energy of formation and entropy of formation, useful in modeling and ascertaining the energy of explosions. The thermodynamic properties provided in the book are important in design, operations, research, development, environmental and safety, covering literally thousands of compounds. This coverage greatly exceeds the coverage of any other book and makes The Yaws Handbook of Thermodynamic Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals a must-have for anyone working in the fields of chemical engineering, process engineering, refining and chemistry."--Publisher's website."@en
