About the Author

Georg Job and Regina Rüffler are scientists and lecturers with a long experience in teaching physical chemistry at all university levels. The writing of the current book was strongly supported by the "Eduard-Job-Foundation for Thermo- and Matter dynamics." The aim of this foundation is to improve education in natural sciences with particular consideration of a new approach developed by Georg Job.


“Strengths of the work are its focus on entropy and chemical potential; the promotion of an intuitive, insightful internalization of concepts; and a strong emphasis on experiments illustrating concepts through sketches and videos … . Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (A. Viste, Choice, Vol. 53 (10), June, 2016)
