1 Chemical Equilibrium The Gibbs energy of a mixture For a pure substance or for a mixture of fixed composition the fundamental equation of Gibbs free energy is dG = - SdT + VdP If the mole numbers n 1 , n 2 , n 3 of the substances present vary, then G = G (T, P , n 1 , n 2 , n 3 ) The total differential dG is: ... 1 , , , 1 , , , ... , , 3 2 3 2 , 1 3 , 2 1 + + + = dn n G dP P G dT T G dG n n P T n n n T n n n P If the system doesn’t suffer any change in composition, dn 1 = 0, dn 2 = 0, etc ... , , , + + + = i P T i n T n P dn n G dP P G dT T G dG i i and consequently we get, S T G i n P = , V P G i n T = , j n P T i i n G , , = µ chemical potential And i i i n T n P dn dP P G dT T G dG i i + + = , , or i i i dn VdP SdT dG + + = fundamental equation of chemical thermodynamics Because the composition is constant, I is constant = i n i G i i dn dG 0 ' 0 " and i i i n G = G is an extensive property A m T P A A m A P T Ai Ai G n G n n G , , , , ] [ = = =

2 For a given species, transport will occur spontaneously from a region of high chemical potential to one of low chemical potential. 0 ) ( < = + = i II i I i i II i i I i dn dn dn dG µ - spontaneous The flow of material will continue until the chemical potential has the same value in all regions of the mixture. At equilibrium the chemical potential of each individual species is the same throughout a mixture.
