Chemical Engineering - New Books
Organic Chemist's Desk Reference by Caroline Cooper; Rupert PurchaseThe Organic Chemist's Desk Reference has been essential reading for laboratory chemists who need a succinct guide to the 'nuts and bolts' of organic chemistry -- the literature, nomenclature, stereochemistry, spectroscopy, hazard information, and laboratory data. This third edition reflects changes in the dissemination of chemical information, revisions to chemical nomenclature, and the adoption of new techniques in NMR spectroscopy, which have taken place since publication of the last edition in 2011. Organic chemistry embraces many other disciplines -- from material sciences to molecular biology -- whose practitioners will benefit from the comprehensive but concise information brought together in this book. Extensively revised and updated, this new edition contains the very latest data that chemists need access to for experimentation and research.

Green Analytical Chemistry by Mihkel Koel; Mihkel KaljurandChemical analysis requires solvents, reagents and energy and generates waste. The main goal of green analytical chemistry is to avoid or reduce the undesirable environmental side effects of chemical analysis, while preserving the classic analytical parameters of accuracy, sensitivity, selectivity and precision. This book portrays the current and changing situation concerning adoption of the principles of green chemistry as applied to analysis. It begins by looking at the advantages of and problems associated with on-site analysis and how analytical techniques can lead to increased productivity, efficiency and accuracy, and thereby reduce the consumption of materials. It then focuses on sample preparation techniques minimising solvent consumption or using alternative solvents, concepts and methods of improving the 'greenness' of instrumental analysis where miniaturization is an important part, separation methods from the perspective of green analytical chemistry and chemometrics approaches, which can reduce or can even remove the need for conventional steps in chemical analysis. Aimed at graduates and novices just entering the field, managers of analytical research laboratories, teachers of analytical chemistry and green public policy makers, this title will be a useful addition to any analytical scientist's library.

Handbook of Process Control and Instrumentation (Chemical Engineering) by Lawrence Daley (Editor)Chemical processes are a crucial part of chemical engineering. They refer to naturally and artificially changing one or many chemical compounds. Process control of chemical processes is an operation of controlling and supervising the optimal and safe use of chemicals and chemical reactions in factories and plants. The processes generally monitored in industrial plants are hydration, oxidation, nitrification, reduction, catalysis, etc. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts in the field of process control and instrumentation with respect to chemical engineering. It includes a detailed explanation of the various concepts and applications of this subject. This textbook will serve as a reference to a broad spectrum of readers.
