9780849391637: Encyclopedic Dictionary of Named Processes in Chemical Technology, Third Edition

Recommended, by Choice Current Reviews for Academic Libraries,.

Covering a broad spectrum of chemical technology, from the gigantic Bessemer process for making steel to the microscopic Manasevit process for applying circuits to silicon chips, the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Named Processes in Chemical Technology, Third Edition includes all those processes that are known by special names regardless of origin or use. Extensively revised and expanded, this third edition incorporates named processes in current commercial use anywhere in the world, those piloted on a substantial scale, as well as important obsolete processes.

Defining more than 3000 processes, 450 of which are new to this edition, this encyclopedic dictionary reflects recent trends in the global chemical industry away from petrochemicals and toward pollution prevention and waste disposal. It also includes processes newly revealed under the Freedom of Information Acts in the US and UK. Each entry is tailored to reflect the importance and topicality of the process providing key reference information, detailed explanation of how the process works, derivation of the name, historical background, date of introduction, patent information, worldwide usage, and end product. The dictionary features a foreward by the widely respected chemical technology historian Prof. Colin A. Russell, extensive cross references, bibliographical references, and an appendix that lists the chemicals and materials that are described in one or more of the processes.

Gathering and defining a large portion of special named processes that may fall outside of standard chemical texts or be scattered among industry manuals, Encyclopedic Dictionary of Named Processes in Chemical Technology, Third Edition provides a single source reference to an extensive array of named processes.
