    In this book, two leading experts and long-time instructors thoroughly explain therodynamics, taking the molecular perspective that working engineers require (and competitive books often avoid). This new Second Edition contains extensive new coverage of today's fast-growing biochemical engineering applications, notably biomass conversion to fuels and chemicals. It also presents many new MATLAB examples and tools to complement its previous usage of Excel and other software.
