The thermodynamics of nonequilibrium processes traditionally required students to have a strong background in physics. However, the materials featured in this volume allow anyone with knowledge in classical thermodynamics of equilibrium processes and traditional chemical kinetics to understand the subject. Topics discussed include systems in the thermodynamics of irreversible processes- thermodynamics of systems that are close to and far from equilibrium- thermodynamics of catalysts- the application of nonequilibrium thermodynamics to material science- and the relationship between entropy and information. This book will be helpful for research into complex chemical transformations, particularly catalytic transformations.Applies simple approaches of non-equilibrium thermodynamics to analyzing properties of chemically reactive systemsCovers systems far from equilibrium, allowing the consideration of most chemically reactive systems of a chemical or biological natureThis approach resolves many complicated problems in the teaching of chemical kinetics
