Summary
    Matter and Molecules: A Broader and Deeper View of Chemical Thermodynamics provides students with an interdisciplinary exploration of physical chemistry. Students learn critical concepts of physical chemistry with special emphasis on application to other areas of science. Instead of presenting a narrow, specialized view of physical and biological phenomena, the text provides a broader, global view, highlighting the problems and scenarios that must be faced and understood by chemists, biochemists, physicists, geologists, pharmacists, engineers, and others.

    Over the course of 11 chapters, students learn about the fundamentals of thermodynamics; molecules, statistics, and matter; partial molar properties and phase transitions; and gaseous mixtures. They read about mixtures in condensed phases and their equilibrium with vapor, solutions, surface phenomena, and chemical equilibrium. The text closes with chapters dedicated to processes with charge transfer, non-equilibrium processes, and future developments anticipated within the discipline. Worked examples are included throughout to demonstrate the application of the material presented.

    Matter and Molecules helps students connect the dots between key concepts in physical chemistry and their use in real-world settings. The text is an excellent resource for undergraduate and graduate courses in physical chemistry.

    Roberto J. Fernandez-Prini is emeritus full professor at the University of Buenos Aires and a senior investigator at CONICET. He earned his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Buenos Aires and completed post-doctoral studies at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom. His areas of specialty include intermolecular interactions, supercritical fluids, and chemical thermodynamics.
    Ernesto Marceca is a professor in the School of Sciences at the University of Buenos Aires and a research staff member at CONICET. He earned his Ph.D. and MSc in chemistry from the University of Buenos Aires. His areas of specialty include the spectroscopy of isolated molecules and clusters, and the solvation dynamics and chemical reactivity in clusters and supercritical fluids.
    Horacio Roberto Corti is a consultant professor of physical chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires, a senior investigator at CONICET, and consultant researcher at the National Atomic Energy Commission. He earned his Ph.D. and MSc in chemistry from the University of Buenos Aires. His areas of specialty include thermodynamics, aqueous systems, transport processes, cryopreservation, and fuel cells.
