Handbook Of Detergents Analysis – The scope and spectrum of methods and techniques applied in detergent analysis have changed significantly during the last decade. Handbook of Detergents, Part C: Analysis demonstrates state-of-the-art strategies, methods, and techniques for the analytical deformulation of modern detergents.
The Properties of Gases and Liquids – Updating their hefty reference approximately every decade since 1958, chemical engineers Poling (U. of Toledo), John M. Prausnitz (U. of California-Berkeley), and John P. O’Connell (U. of Virginia) describe and critically review various estimation procedures for a limited number of properties of gases and liquids.
Rules of Thumb for Chemical Engineers – The most complete guide of its kind, this is the standard handbook for chemical and process engineers. All new material on fluid flow, long pipe, fractionators, separators and accumulators, cooling towers, gas treating, blending, troubleshooting field cases, gas solubility, and density of irregular solids. This substantial addition of…
Continuum mechanics and thermodynamics are foundational theories of many fields of science and engineering. This book presents a fresh perspective on these fundamental topics, connecting micro- and nanoscopic theories and emphasizing topics relevant to understanding solid-state thermo-mechanical behavior.
Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics – Learn classical thermodynamics alongside statistical mechanics with this fresh approach to the subjects. Molecular and macroscopic principles are explained in an integrated, side-by-side manner to give students a deep, intuitive understanding of thermodynamics and equip them to tackle future research topics that focus on the nanoscale.
Quantum Theory and Statistical Thermodynamics – This textbook presents a concise yet detailed introduction to quantum physics. Concise, because it condenses the essentials to a few principles. Detailed, because these few principles – necessarily rather abstract – are illustrated by several telling examples.
Chemical Thermodynamics and Information Theory with Applications – Thermodynamics and information touch theory every facet of chemistry. However, the physical chemistry curriculum digested by students worldwide is still heavily skewed toward heat/work principles established more than a century ago.
Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics presents comprehensive coverage of the subject of thermodynamics from a chemical engineering viewpoint. The text provides a thorough exposition of the principles of thermodynamics, and details their application to chemical processes.
Fundamentals of Chemical Reaction Engineering – ”Chemistry in the hands of Engineers!” This mantra, initiated and developed largely in the research programs of academic chemical engineers over the last few decades, has now made its way into the core undergraduate curriculum in the form of a new Chemical Reaction Engineering textbook by Cal Tech’s Mark…
Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments – For students, DIY hobbyists, and science buffs, who can no longer get real chemistry sets, this one-of-a-kind guide explains how to set up and use a home chemistry lab, with step-by-step instructions for conducting experiments in basic chemistry — not just to make pretty colors and stinky smells,…
