The new subtitle of Volume 2, reflects both the emphasis of the new edition and the importance of these topics in chemical engineering. It contains new chapters on, 'Adsorption', 'ion exchange', 'Chromatographic separations' and 'Membrane separations'. This volume is concerned with the physical nature of the processes that take place in industrial units, and in particular, with the factors that influence the rate of transfer of material. Particle technology which relates to the basic properties of systems of particles and their preparation by comminution, is covered in Chapters 1 and 2. Subsequent chapters deal with the interaction between fluids and particles under varying conditions. Fluid-solids separation processes are discussed in the chapters on, 'Sedimentation', 'Filtration', 'Gas Cleaning' and 'Centrifugal Separations'. The chapters on Leaching, Drying and Crystallisation are concerned with the mass transfer from solids; and Distillation, Gas Absorption and Liquid-Liquid Extraction on mass transfer in fluids. This volume, along with the rest of the series, will continue to be a valuable text, both for those teaching and studying chemical engineering and for scientists and engineers in industry.

Ray Sinnott's varied career, mainly in design and development, began with several major companies including Dupont and John Brown. The main areas covered within these appointments were: Gas Production and Distribution, Nuclear Energy, Elastomers and Textile fibres. After his career in industry he joined the Chemical Engineering Department, University of Wales Swansea in 1970, specialising in teaching process and plant design, and other engineering practice subjects. The first edition of Chemical Engineering Design (Coulson and Richardson's Vol 6) was published in 1983. Subsequent editions have been published at approximately 5 year intervals. Ray Sinnott retired from full time teaching in 1995 but has maintained close contact with the engineering profession.
