Text:

  • Garland, Nibler, Shoemaker; Experiments in Physical Chemistry, 8th edition. McGraw-Hill, 2009 (GNS) (not mandatory). You may also use 7th edition (2002)

    Several of the experiments done in this course are to be found in this book, but with somewhat different procedures. The introductory theory sections can be quite useful, and the experimental sections may also provide valuable information. Use the procedures in the handouts, but use this book as additional reference. I will try to place one copy on reserve in the library.

  • Handouts, web material and Reserve Books
  • Recommended Books and other references:

    Besides the GNS, the following books are referenced for relevant reading . They are recommended to help in understanding the theory and concepts applying to the various experiments.

  • P. Atkins, J. de Paula Physical Chemistry, W.H. Freeman and Co., 2007, 8th edition (AP). (Students should have purchased this book for the lecture course, Chem 433-434)
  • K. Laidler , J. Meiser , B. Sanctuary , Physical Chemistry, Houghton Mifflin Co., 2003, 4th edition (LMS)
