    With the development of a variety of exciting new areas of research involving computational chemistry, nano and smart materials, and applications of the recently discovered graphene, there can be no doubt that physical chemistry is a vitally important field It is also perceived as the most daunting branch of chemistry, being necessarily grounded in physics and mathematicWith the development of a variety of exciting new areas of research involving computational chemistry, nano and smart materials, and applications of the recently discovered graphene, there can be no doubt that physical chemistry is a vitally important field It is also perceived as the most daunting branch of chemistry, being necessarily grounded in physics and mathematics and drawing as it does on quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and statistical thermodynamics.With his typical clarity and hardly a formula in sight, Peter Atkins Very Short Introduction explores the contributions physical chemistry has made to all branches of chemistry Providing an insight into its central concepts Atkins reveals the cultural contributions physical chemistry has made to our understanding of the natural world ABOUT THE SERIES The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area These pocket sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

      this is a later addition:so i give it to my father for his professional appraisal- which is couched in regular scientific caution, as advancing a theoretical idea rather than critical take. for father, who even recognizes the author's name though never met, this book highlights a question of whether this is possible to introduce without over-simplifying. or, in his case, not giving enough enthusiasm for spectroscopy. i ask father if he would write an intro, and he reminds me he has, though by no [...]

      No tan tan bueno como "Thermodynamics: a very short introduction", pero aún así muy bueno. El problema es que la Química Física es demasiado amplia como para introducirla con fundamento en 120 páginas pequeñas. Aún así, Atkins realiza un gran trabajo explicando la termodinámica, la química cuántica, la importancia de los potenciales químicos en los cambios físicos y químicos de la materia, etc. Una pena que no le quede espacio para soltar demasiadas perlas informativas ni para elab [...]

      Pretty decent survey of the main sub branches within physical chemistry, but the book doesn't flow: it presents the different branches more or less separately. Though informative, it's really quite dry. Don't know whether this is the fault of the author or whether chemistry is just a boring subject. Probably a bit of both.
