This book meets the need for an extensive introduction to the techniques of problem solving in industrial chemical applications. The numerous examples are presented in an easy-to-understand fashion, aimed directly at scientists and engineers working in industry, as well as newcomers in the field. The book also provides a quick, comprehensive and contemporary re-education for practitioners, involving interdisciplinary functions and knowledge in the chemical and related industries. The examples originate from the author's own rich industrial experience and cover a broad area of science and technology. A unique feature is that most of this compilation of examples has been reported in journals or performed in the industrial environment by the author. This is "first-hand", direct problem solving for the chemist in industry.
