The resources used by chemical engineers are available in a variety of formats, from print handbooks and encyclopedias that define concepts and explain processes to online databases of chemical names, formulas and properties.
This detailed reference of chemical technology has been revised and updated to include new subject areas, such as biotechnology, computer applications, analytical techniques, environmental concerns, composite materials, materials science and pharmaceuticals.
Perry's is one of the most important resources for chemical engineers. It is organized into three sections: Section 1 contains fundamentals, such as conversion charts; Section 2 contains process data, such as solubility and thermodynamic properties; and Section 3 contains auxiliary information, such as materials and process machinery data.
This handbook includes information on organic compounds and is your first stop for basic chemistry information. In addition to basic chemical information, such as structural formula, formula weight, Beilstein reference and density, this book also includes sections on topics such as conversion, mathematics, surface tension, and properties of atoms, radicals, and bond.
