This new edition of this highly successful book has been thoroughly updated, and includes substantial amounts of new material. The book continues to cover the chemistry of papermaking to the mill and provides a sound physico-chemical background to the subject which has been recognized as uniquely valuable. Changes to the new edition include new chapters on polyelectrolytes; the chemistry of recycling and de-inking, whilst many of the other chapters are either completely rewritten or thoroughly updated.

Editorial Reviews

Deals with the chemistry of forming paper from aqueous suspensions of fiber and other additives, rather than with the chemistry either of paper itself, or of the preparation of the suspension from raw materials. Called "wet-end chemistry" the subject would interest papermill chemists, students and researchers in the field, and chemical companies supplying the paper industry. Among the topics are accessibility of cellulose; electrokinetics; acid, neutral, and alkaline sizing; dyes and fillers; measurement and control; and practical applications. Annotation c.
