Chemical Engineering: Trends and Developments

Miguel A. Galan (Editor), Eva Martin del Valle (Editor)

ISBN: 978-0-470-02498-0 July 2005 400 Pages


Unlike extensive major reference works or handbooks, Chemical Engineering: Trends and Developments provides readers with a ready-reference to latest techniques in selected areas of chemical engineering where research is and will be focused in the future. These areas are: bioseparations; particle science and design; nanotechnology; and reaction engineering. The aim of the book is to provide academic and R&D researchers with an overview of the main areas of technical development and how these techniques can be applied. Each chapter focuses on a technique, plus a selection of applications or examples of where the technique could be applied.

"…a good resource for researchers, scientists, and engineers…would also serve well as a text for graduate students…" (Materials and Manufacturing Processes, September/October 2006)

"…a book like this is…refreshing because it allows an interested reader to take a casual stroll on the beach and collect shells--hopefully picking up a few that spark innovation." (The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering, October 2006)
