From the table of contents: introduction, single component systems, multicomponent systems, the ideal solution model, partial molar properties, nonideal solutions, stability, solid-liquid equilibrium, gas solubility and Henry's law, and more.
by Max Planck - Longmans, Green
The classic by the Nobel Laureate is still recognized as one of the best introductions to thermodynamics. A model of conciseness and clarity, it covers fundamental facts and definitions, first and second fundamental principles of thermodynamics, etc.
by Elliott H. Lieb, Jakob Yngvason - arXiv
The essential postulates of classical thermodynamics are formulated, from which the second law is deduced as the principle of increase of entropy in irreversible adiabatic processes that take one equilibrium state to another.
