Area of ​​Expertise - Physical chemistry

Thermodynamics (thermodynamics) deals with changes in changes in the state of thermodynamic systems caused by changes in the internal energy and entropy of these systems.

For example, thermodynamics answers the fundamental question of whether the reaction (= thermodynamic system) of educts to the imaginary products is possible at all. In what time this happens, she does not answer. The investigation of the actual behavior over time of a chemical reaction is the subject of reaction kinetics.
