Fifty years ago solution chemistry occupied a major fraction of physical chemistry textbooks, and dealt mainly with classical thermodynamics, phase equilibria, and non-equilibrium phenomena, especially those related to electrochemistry. Much has happened in the intervening period, with tremendous advances in theory and the development of important new experimental techniques. This book brings the reader through the developments from classical macroscopic descriptions to more modern microscopic details.An attempt is made to familiarize the student with the fundamental background material together with important aspects of current research in each of these areas. ... and graduate students who have completed two semesters or three quarters of chemical thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. ... As far as possible only SI units have been used in writing equations and presenting experimental data.
