Entropy  
These processes are shown in reverse. The situations shown are so highly improbable that we would not expect to observe them in nature.
Thermodynamics
Endothermic Reaction  
Solid barium hydroxide octahydrate (Ba(OH)2*8H2O) and ammonium thiocyanate (NH4SCN) are mixed in a beaker, which is then placed on a few drops of water on a small board. The reaction that occurs is highly endothermic.

Thermochemistry : HeatCapacityLiq (4 Variations)
100 g of water (c=4.184 J/g.oC), 100 g of ethanol (c=2.46 J/g.oC), 100 g of carbon tetrachloride (c=0.861 J/g.oC), and 100 g of ethylene glycol (c=2.42 J/g.oC) at 50oC were each placed into a separate coffee cup calorimeter and the temperature recorded. The temperature of the surroundings was 20oC. After one hour the temperature of which substance would have changed by the largest amount? Assume that the rate of heat transfer from the coffee cup to the surroundings was the same in each case.

The Correlation of Binary Acid Strengths with Molecular Properties in First-Year Chemistry  Travis D. Fridgen
This article replaces contradictory explanations for the strengths of different binary acids in first-year chemistry textbooks with a single explanation that uses a BornHaber cycle involving homolyic bond dissociation energies, electron affinities, and ion solvation enthalpies to rationalize trends in the strengths of all binary acids.

Appreciating Oxygen  Hilton M. Weiss
Photosynthetic flora and microfauna utilize light from the sun to convert carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates and oxygen. While these carbohydrates and their derivative hydrocarbons are generally considered to be fuels, it is the thermodynamically energetic oxygen molecule that traps, stores, and provides almost all of the energy that powers life on earth.

Undergraduates' Understanding of Entropy  Arnd H. Jungermann
Szbilir and Bennett carried out an extensive investigation on undergraduates understanding of entropy. Though I agree in general with their statements that orderdisorder arguments form a misleading entropy concept, I would like to make some comments with regard to a certain part of their online supplement.
