Consider also the classical textbook used by generations of chemistry students and researchers: Thermodynamics by Kenneth Pitzer and Leo Brewer (revision of Lewis and Randall) second
edition, McGraw-Hill International Student Edition, 1961. Chaps 32 and 33 are particularly relevant to high-temperature chemistry.
