Contents Notes
"In the six years since the third edition was completed, there have been major changes in the chemical industry. Biotechnology is quickly overtaking the petrochemicals industry as the dominant sector. These changes are reflected in the new processes being developed, many of which have their own names. Of course, niche improvements are still being made in petrochemistry, and some of these have new names too. 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, Fourth Edition provides a single-source reference to an extensive array of named processes. Written by a highly experienced and respected author, this user-friendly text is presented in a practical dictionary format that is useful for a broad audience including industrial chemists and engineers"--
