    The goalThe aim of the course is to make adequate relations between molecular and classical thermodynamics, using the results obtained by the statistical thermodynamic. In order to have appropriate description of the solution behavior, selection of a theoretical model will be described Phase equilibria, relevant to the chemical, polymer, pharmaceutical and biochemical engineering and ecology will be modeled.
    The outcomeAfter this course students will be able: (1) to analyze complex thermodynamic process, (2) to solve thermodynamic problems using several/different types of approaches (classical and molecular), (3) to adapt projects to new or modified thermodynamic conditions (4) to gain competencies and skills needed to work in scientific research team.
    Contents of lectures• Introduction to statistical thermodynamics. Intermolecular forces. Molecular theory. ; • The fugacity of gaseous mixtures (virial coefficients and potentials). Fugacity of the liquid mixture (Excess functions for binary and multicomponent mixtures Wilson, NRTL, UNIQUAC equation). Excess functions and partial miscibility. Predicting of the activity coefficients: UNIFAC equation. ; • Models and theories of the solution (van Laar, Scatchard-Hildebrand theory, two-fluid theory, etc). ; • Polymers: Flory-Huggins theory; equation of state for polymer solutions (Prigogine-Flory-Patterson theory). ; • Thermodynamics of emulsions (thermodynamic theory of emulsions formation and their stability). ; • Solubility of gases and solids in liquids. ; • Phase equilibria at high pressure (liquid-liquid equilibria, the gas-liquid equilibria, phase equilibria calculation using equations of state, equilibrium phase calculation using chemical theory). ; • Molecular simulation. ;
    Contents of exercisesComputer simulations and lab class that follow the theoretical classes.
