First published in 1914 by Professor Fritz Ullmann in Berlin, the Enzyklopädie der Technischen Chemie (as the German title read) quickly became the standard reference work in industrial chemistry. Generations of chemists have since relied on ULLMANN'S as their prime reference source. Further German editions followed in 1928 - 1932 and 1951 - 1970. The 25 volumes of the 4th Edition, published in 1972 - 1984, were divided into an alphabetically ordered series of 18 volumes and a general series of six volumes which gave an account of the principles and methods of chemical engineering and process technology. ULLMANN'S Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry, 5th Edition, was published from 1985 to 1996. This is the first edition that was published in the English language. ULLMANN'S Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry, 6th Edition, was published in December 2002. The 40 volumes including one index volume contained 800 major articles, organized in alphabetical order.
Praise for the 6th Edition:
"The Sixth Edition is the culmination of 90 years experience and tradition, fully international in scope and presentation with articles of the highest quality. It deserves a place in every library that aspires to offer comprehensive reference material on industrial chemistry. I can recommend it without reservation."
"In summary, the Encyclopedia is an excellent addition to a technical library. Its broad coverage provides the reader with an excellent source of up-to-date industrial chemistry information, and the reference citations provide an avenue to more detailed information."
—Journal of the American Chemical Society
"Ullmann's is an indispensable gold mine for students, patent attorneys, and researchers [...]. It should be readily available [...] at major public libraries and corporate collections."
—Today's Chemist at Work
