V. Zakoshansky is the creator of phenol process, commercialized by ILLA International. In his book Dr. Zakoshansky focused on a thorough analysis of phenol process technologies practiced worldwide. The combination of his unique and extensive practical experience with the results of detailed studies garnered from 21 phenol plants in various countries throughout the world, allowed Dr. Zakoshansky to present a comprehensive scientific analysis of the advantages and weaknesses of currently practiced phenol technologies, to offer his insight into both the present state, and into the outlook of modern phenol processes, which have become some of the largest production capacity petrochemical processes over the last twenty years. A substantial part of this treatise is devoted to the results of author-conducted research initiatives that relate to the kinetics and mechanism of the key chemical reactions occurring at each stage of a typical phenol process. This portion of the book also demonstrates a number of advantageous solutions that have enabled a transition from the traditional technologies to the new processes of the twenty-first century. These solutions are essentially breakthroughs both from the standpoints of process selectivity and of process safety. In addition, Dr. Zakoshansky presents his reviews of the most important alternative technologies for phenol production as viewed through the "lens" of the well-known problem of imbalance in the worldwide production of acetone produced worldwide. In conclusion, this book will be an invaluable tool for professors, research fellows and graduate students at chemical and chemical engineering departments, especially those who are interested in study of petrochemical processing. At the same time this treatise is undeniably not only of a purely scientific, but also of an immense practical interest for all phenol manufacturers, experts and engineers in petroleum industry.
