Atkins' Physical Chemistry


Atkins' Physical Chemistry is widely acknowledged by both students and lecturers around the globe to be the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry. Now in its twelfth edition, the text has been enhanced with additional learning features, and the writing style has been refreshed to resonate with the modern student.




Atkins' Physical chemistry



Peter Atkins is a fellow of Lincoln College in the University of Oxford and Emeritus Professor of Physical Chemistry. He is the author of over seventy books for students and a general audience. His texts are market leaders around the globe. A frequent lecturer in the United States and throughout the world, he has held visiting professorships in France, Israel, Japan, China,Russia, the USA, and New Zealand. He was the founding chairman of the Committee on Chemistry Education of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and was a member of IUPAC's Physical and Biophysical Chemistry Division. Peter was the 2016 recipient of the American Chemical Society's Grady-Stack Award for the communication of chemistry.


Julio de Paula is a Professor of Chemistry, Lewis & Clark College. A native of Brazil, he received a B.A. degree in chemistry from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and a Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry from Yale University. His research activities encompass the areas of molecular spectroscopy, biophysical chemistry,and nanoscience. He has taught courses in general chemistry, physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, instrumental analysis, and writing. Julio was a recipient of the 2020 STAR Award, given by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement.


"An excellent textbook: very easy to read and fosters great understanding. Physical chemistry can be a very mathematical and complex area, but this textbook makes it easy to understand and is something I see myself using to help me carry out both lab work and physical chemistry questions." - Sophie Shearlaw, student, University of Strathclyde


"Covers all the topics that you would want in an undergraduate course on physical chemistry. It includes succinct overviews of mathematical concepts that students need to understand, and is extremely well-organised, breaking material into manageable sections." - Kristin Dawn Krantzman, lecturer, College of Charleston

Peter William Atkins FRSC (born 10 August 1940) is an English chemist and a Fellow of Lincoln College at the University of Oxford. He retired in 2007. He is a prolific writer of popular chemistry textbooks, including Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, and Molecular Quantum Mechanics. Atkins is also the author of a number of popular science books, including Atkins' Molecules, Galileo's Finger: The Ten Great Ideas of Science and On Being.


Atkins studied chemistry there, obtaining a BSc degree in chemistry, and a PhD degree in 1964 for research into electron spin resonance spectroscopy, and other aspects of theoretical chemistry. Atkins then took a postdoctoral position at UCLA as a Harkness Fellow of the Commonwealth fund.[1] He returned to Britain in 1965 as a fellow and tutor of Lincoln College, Oxford, and lecturer in physical chemistry (later, professor of physical chemistry). In 1969, he won the Royal Society of Chemistry's Meldola Medal. In 1996 he was awarded the Title of Distinction of Professor of Chemistry. He retired in 2007, and since then has been a full-time author.[2]

Material within chapters has been radically reorganised into discrete topics, to give the text an inviting modular feel. This restructuring increases the digestibility of the text for students, while making it more flexible for lecturers to teach from. The extensive learning support provided throughout the book now includes new checklists of key concepts at the end of each topic, to reinforce the main take-home messages in each section. The mathematics support for students has also been significantly expanded, with the addition of new Chemist's toolkit boxes, which provide useful reminders of essential mathematical concepts and techniques. The coupling of the broad coverage of the subject with a structure and use of pedagogy that is even more innovative will ensure Atkins' Physical Chemistry remains the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry.

Acknowledged by students and lecturers around the world as the textbook for studying physical chemistry, Atkins' Physical Chemistry evolves with each edition to meet needs more effectively than any other book.


Organized into discrete Topics to break down the material, and grouped into overarching Focuses to show the bigger picture, the international edition of Atkins' Physical Chemistry is closely matched to the needs of both lecturers and students. Extensive mathematical support includes 'Chemist's toolkits', which provide students with succinct reminders of mathematical concepts and techniques, and detailed annotations of mathematical derivations, broken into clear steps with signposted 'physical interpretation' sections. Learning features thrughout the text, such as checklists of key concepts at the end of each focus, further support students in their study of the subject. The combination of the broad coverage, with the flexible and digestible structure, and use of learning features makes this international edition of Atkins' Physical Chemistry the textbook of choice for studying physical chemistry.
