Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia Of Chemical Technology

Posted By: osaamaa

The Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology is designed to present the versatile field of chemical technology to professionals who wish to learn about technologically important materials, established as well as cutting edge methods, and relevant phenomena.

Although a large amount of information regarding chemistry and chemical technology is now available through various communication channels, the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology has kept its unique role as "the best reference of chemical technology" since the first edition was published in 1949, by providing the necessary perspective and insight into pertinent aspects, rather than merely regurgitating information that could be found elsewhere. Written by prominent scholars from industry, academia, and research institutions, the Encyclopedia brings together and treats systematically facts on the properties, manufacturing, and uses of chemicals and materials, processes, and engineering principles, coupled with insights into current research, emerging technologies and economic aspects. Environmental and health concerns are also addressed.
