The first edition of Pulp and Paper, published in 1951, consolidated in book form all the known science and technology of pulp and papermaking, and focused attention on the interface of the scientific and technological aspects of this industry. This long-awaited new edition uses the same approach as the two previous editions in updating the knowledge as it describes the chemistry and chemical technology involved in the manufacture of pulp and paper, the properties of paper, and the uses for paper. Several noteworthy differences do exist between the preceding editions and this new one. Whereas the earlier editions were written by a single author, this one has multiple authorship by experts in their respective fields. James P. Casey, author of the earlier editions, acts as overall editor to ensure a continuation of the successful style. This edition has also been expanded to four volumes from the previous three, an increase necessitated by the larger body of knowledge in the field. Finally, this latest work emphasizes such modern concerns as: the reduction of the capital intensity; the reduction in the environmental impact; the reduction of the use of chemicals, energy, and water; the reduction of operating costs; the increase of automation; the more effective use of virgin fibers; the greater use of secondary fibers; and the employment of wood for multiple use as a source of energy and chemicals, as well as for fibers in papermaking. Topics discussed in this third volume include: dry-strength resins, natural products for wet-end addition, filling and loading, internal sizing, retention chemistry, wet strength, dyeing, surface sizing, and properties of paper. Also, many tables and illustrations of original data, as well as carefully selected published data, are included in all volumes of this edition. The well-prepared bibliography further enables the book to serve as a definitive reference. This work will be an invaluable reference for personnel in the pulp and paper industry and suppliers to that industry, as well as for the appropriate departments in universities and technological institutes. 8012
