This new edition provides a very thorough and careful presentation of modern methods of estimating the physical properties of gases and liquids. Pure gases, pure liquids, multicomponent mixtures of gases and of liquids, and equilibrium multiphase systems are all considered. In the phase equilibria area, solid-liquid and solid-gas systems are included. Properties considered include vapor pressure, critical properties, boiling and freezing points, PVT (pressure-volume-temperature) properties, thermodynamic properties (viscosity, thermal conductivity, diffusion coefficents, and surface tension). Estimation methods are chosen for their accuracy, range of utility, and the availability of needed input data. Methods that are based on a theoretical model of the system are generally preferred. The emphasis on new work is strong, so that in many cases, old familiar methods are omitted. A very extensive database of properties of pure components is provided in the appendixes. Generally, simplicity has been sacrificed to accuracy, so that these methods will not be as easy for the process engineer to use, as was the case with earlier editions. Still, this is a useful, and possibly even vital book for a practicing process engineer; highly recommended for libraries serving them. Graduate students through professionals.
Ever since the first edition of this work was published in 1958, it has been a "must have" in the reference library of Chemical Engineers, particularly those engaged in process design. It has long been the primary reference for anyone who must estimate physical or thermodynamic properties required for equipment design knowing little more than the chemical formula of the materials to be handled. The main value of this book over a simple bibliography that can now be generated by a computer search is that the authors continue the practice started in the first edition of publishing tables comparing the results of using the various estimation methods to each other and experimental data when available and then make recommendations as to which method seems to work best under various conditions.
The need for regular updating was succintly stated by Reid and Sherwood in their Preface to the second edition in 1966 when they commented that the half life of estimation correlations seemed to be about four years. Although there are now more fundamentally based properties estimation methods than there were then, the authors note in their Preface to the new edition that ..".most estimation methods rely heavily on empiricism..." Thus the need for periodic updating of this work continues.
Space does not permit listing chapter by chapter the significant differences from the previous edition, but they are substantial. The properties data bank in Appendix A has been completed revised.
This new edition should be added to the library of anyone who must estimate physical properties of materials to be processed.--Kunesh, John "AIChE Journal "
Updating their hefty reference approximately every decade since 1958, chemical engineers Poling (U. of Toledo), John M. Prausnitz (U. of California-Berkeley), and John P. O'Connell (U. of Virginia) describe and critically review various estimation procedures for a limited number of properties of gases and liquids. Among those properties are critical and other pure component properties; pressure-volume- temperature relationships and thermodynamic properties of pure components and mixtures; vapor pressures and phase-change enthalpies; standard enthalpies of formation; standard Gibbs energy of formation; heat capacity; surface tension; viscosity; thermal conductivity; diffusion coefficients; and, phase equilibria. They compare most of the estimated properties to experimental findings to indicate reliability, and illustrate most methods with examples.Alle Produktbeschreibungen
Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
The thermodynamic and phase equilibria sections are excellent. I would recommend this book for those sections alone.

Part of the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is my copy of this book arrived with the front cover not glued to the interior pages. I glued it myself, but still disappointing.
It is not indexed, searching for words will not work.
Large tables in the appendix and mathematical formulas in the text are pictures.
Mathematical formulas in the text are pictures. You cannot scale the fonts. There is a single level of zoom available, however the image is still low resolution. Subscripts are barely readable. Zooming typically shows only a single formula, so reading a page with multiple formulas is slow. You cannot just flick your eyes to compare terms in formulas on the same page.
The tables in the appendix appear to be pictures as well. The chemical formulas in the left column cannot be read, even in landscape mode. In this case zooming does nothing as the picture is already full screen width.
The text is not indexed, the Kindle search function returns "Title not yet indexed". You are reduced to paging through the book's index to find things (which are linked to the actual content). The worst of both worlds. You only have an index (just like the book), page turning is slow and you have to view pages in sequence or call up the menu... (like most digital readers). No fast manual "binary" searches through the index pages.
This version of The Properties of Gases and Liquids is not ready for use on the Kindle.
Having worked on a piece of an earlier edition, as a grad student at U of Mo - Rolla; where Bruce Poling was a professor, I know how much work it is putting this together for the industries. My hats off to Bruce and his co-authors, and especially to Nanci, his wife, for doing yoman's work on this 5th edition of a classic!
if you are a serious chemical engineer, you will buy this.
