2nd edition. — PHI Learning Private Limited, Delhi. 2013. — 636 p. — ISBN-978-81-203-4747-2The main concern of the author while writing the first edition of A Textbook of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics was to provide a student-friendly book on the subject of thermodynamics which was considered by many in the academic circles, as a difficult subject consisting of abstract and difficult-to-conceptualize ideas, principles and variables. Within a very short period after its publication, the book received wide acceptance among the faculty and students of Chemical Engineering and related disciplines. This prompted the author to bring out this second edition retaining the basic structure, sequence, philosophy and style of presentation.
