This course combines the ideas from both pure and multicomponent thermodynamics. It introduces molecular insight and the tools (including commercial software) for solving both simple and complex problems in phase and chemical equilibria. The course will have a strong focus on multiscale analysis, for example, covering intermolecular potentials (molecular-scale) to aid students in choosing equations of state for novel materials (macro-scale). Advanced topics covered include interfacial behavior, adsorption, and osmotic equilibrium.
