All of the articles in this edition are new and reflect the current state-of-the-art on the subject covered. Many new subjects are included to reflect changes in chemical technology through the 1970s and into the early 1980s. This new edition, however, will be familiar to users of the earlier editions: comprehensive, authoritative, lucid. Kirk-Othmer remains an indispensable information source for all producers and users of chemical products and materials. Emphasis in this Third Edition is given to important present-day topics of concern to all chemists, scientists, and engineers: energy, health, safety, toxicology, and new materials. New subjects have been added especially to polymer and plastics technology, fuels and energy, inorganics and solid-state chemistry, composite materials, coatings, fermentation and enzymes, pharmaceuticals, surfactant technology, fibers, and textiles. Excerpts from reviews of the Third Edition ..".invaluable...should find a place in all libraries used by chemists." --Microchemical Journal ..".'bible' of chemical technologists... normally a part of any library." --Electrochemical Progress ..".initial volume ... an excellent start in bringing forth new knowledge in composite form." --Journal of the American Chemical Society ..". a whole new encyclopedia ... well illustrated ... really impressed with the quality." --Chemical Engineering ..".an invaluable source of authoritative information..." --Chemical Processing "Kirk-Othmer is universally regarded as a reference work of par excellence. It stands supreme in the field of chemical technology..." --The Chemical Engineer "Libraries that can afford the investment ... would be well advised to make room for this valuable source." --Journal of Medicinal ChemistryRead Less
