This volume covers a range of various chemical engineering disciplines such as intermediates and dyes, food and fermentation and oils surfactants and oleo chemicals, paints and polymer, pharmaceutical technology and pharmacy and fibers and textile processing. The study for chemical engineering is similar to that for chemistry but includes work in engineering related areas such as thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, process design, and control and electronics. This new encyclopaedia integrates all of the approaches that have gone into the making of the modern field of chemical engineering. It is unique among available reference works in that it covers the most recent topics of research. This work is intended for all those interested in this field.
