Description

Solvents have been traditionally chosen on the basis of whether they can do the job effectively and economically but other factors now have to be taken into consideration. Regulations relating to the exposure to solvent vapours have become more stringent - hence the importance of choosing the best solvent for the job as early as possible in the process. This book sets out the physical properties of the fifty most commonly used solvents, along with information on their behaviour during and after use, health and fire hazards, the photochemical ozone creation potential (POCP), and recovery processes including practical aspects of the design and operation of batch stills.
Introduction; Removal of solvents from air; Separation of solvents from water; Solvent recovery equipment; Separation of solvents from residues; Separation of used solvents; Drying solvents; Used solvent disposal; Good operating procedure; Choice of solvent with recovery in mind; Improvements in batch distillation; Extractive distillation; Significance of solvent properties; Recovery notes; Properties of solvent pairs; Properties of individual solvents; Bibliography
* The standard reference book, providing essential information on solvent properties and solvent recovery for chemical engineers and industrial chemists

* Presents critical data used to select the best solvent for a given industrial process, highlights potential problems with particular solvents and provides detailed guidance on the recovery of solvents

* Data presented in a highly accessible tabular format for quick references

* Updated and extended, with approximately 1500 new and fully cross-referenced entries
