Kirk-Othmer concise encyclopedia of chemical technology, 5th ed.; 2v.

John Wiley & Sons


2711 pages




The massive, complete 5th edition of this essential reference--27 volumes--has been reduced to remarkably concise presentation in these two weighty volumes. Every article of the full edition is included here in an abridged version--over 700 articles in all. As in the full edition, the articles are signed, and contain an introduction, description of fundamental principles, and, as appropriate, brief discussion of the various methods or processes, chemical or physical properties, and manufacturing aspects. Many tables and drawings are included and each entry concludes with an abbreviated bibliography of 3-4 essential titles. Though concise, this reference provides a thorough and authoritative overview of all aspects of chemical technology.
