Need a good book

  1. Oct 1, 2004 #1
    Need a good book....

    On non-equilibrium thermodynamics, particulary of chemical reactions. More specifically still, coupled chemical reactions in open systems. Had a look around our library and most we have seem to be pre-occupied mainly with engineering (engines, electric currents etc). Any suggestions greatly appreciated (also websites, review articles... ?).

    "Non-eq. thermo?" Prigogine. From your protein folding questions, that is NOT what you want. Thermodynamics, Lewis & Randall, 2nd ed., Pitzer & Brewer, 1961, might be more to your liking for discussions of irreversible processes, estimations of properties, and the other basics of chem. thermo.
