PREFACE - This compendium serves a unique function for those involved in the chemical industry-it provides the necessary information for making the decision as to which trademark chemical product is most suitable for a particular application. The chemicals included in this second book of the series have their major function as dispersants, solvents, and solubilizers, however, complete cross-referencing is provided for the multiple functions of all the chemicals. The first section which is the major portion of each volume contains the most common generic name of the chemicals as the main entry. All these generic entries are in alphabetical order. Synonyms for these chemicals are then listed. The CTFA name appears alongside the appropriate generic name. The structural and/or molecular formula of the chemical is listed whenever possible. The generic chemical is sold under various tradenames and these are listed here in alphabetical order for ease of reference along with their manufacturer in parentheses. The Category subheading lists all the possible functions that the chemical can serve. Because of differences in form, activity, etc., individual tradenames of the generic chemical are used in particular applications more frequently. These are delineated in the Applications section. The differences in properties. toxicity/handling. storage/handling, and standard packaging are specified in the subsequent sections wherever distinguishing characteristics are known. The second section of the volume TRADENAME PRODUCTS AND GENERIC EQUN ALENTS helps the user who only knows a chemical by one tradename to locate its main entry in section 1. The user can look up this tradename in this section of the book and be referred to the appropriate, main-entry, generic chemical name. The third section GENERIC CHEMICAL SYNONYMS AND CROSS REFERENCES provides a way of locating the main entries by knowing only one of the synonyms. If the generic chemical is not in the volume, it will refer you to the volume in which it is contained. The fourth section TRADENAME PRODUCT MANUFACTURERS lists the full addresses of the companies that manufacture or distribute the tradename products found in the first section.
