chemical statistical thermodynamics of materials

Designed for who have already seen classical thermodynamics, equilibrium chemistry, spectroscopy and quantum mechanics in physical chemistry, this course bridges the fundamental aspects of thermodynamics and quantum chemistry. Thermodynamics is concerned mainly with the properties and actions of the bulk materials, while quantum chemistry looks in detail at individual atoms and molecules. Statistical thermodynamics brings these two different viewpoints together where the bulk material properties and actions are predicted from the properties of the microscopic atoms and molecules. Statistical thermodynamics provides a set of tools for modeling molecular behavior and how it is realized in the macroscopic realm. Most importantly, statistical thermodynamics gives a language for interpreting experiments. Chemicals react and rearrange. Fluids boil, freeze, and evaporate. Proteins fold. This course will study the forces that drive these (and other) processes.

The following topics in classical thermodynamics will be covered:

  • the laws of thermodynamics; conditions for equilibrium
  • solutions
  • excess quantities
  • binary and ternary phase diagrams

Additionally, the following topics in statistical thermodynamics will be covered:

  • statistical definition of entropy
  • ensembles and the Boltzmann and Gibbs distributions
  • quantum and classical ideal gasses
  • the regular solution model
