## Overview

In 1936, Donder, in his *Thermodynamic Theory of Affinity*, defined affinity as follows:^{[1]}

where A is affinity, ∂ξ is the partial of the Gibbs energy G, ∂ξ is the partial of the reaction extent, p is pressure, and T is temperature, the latter shown in subscript signifying they are being held constant in the differentiation, in respect to the system being an isothermal and isobaric.
