Editorial Reviews

Chemical Engineering Research excellent book by two talented and distinguished American academics.
Intended for use in undergraduate chemical engineering courses or even a graduate course in separations, this text covers introductory concepts, separations achieved by phase creation or addition, and separations by barriers and solid agents. Three additional chapters treating separations that involve a solid phase may be obtained through the authors. Most topics are illustrated by detailed examples and are accompanied by several homework exercises. Effort is also made to present the development of industrial equipment and the accompanying theory for each separation operation, with pertinent references to the literature. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    This book is good if you have already taken the course of separations. Otherwise, it will your waste of time, because it is laid out very badly, and there is too much information, but lacks style. Also, the notations are different, making it worse to remember information from previous prereq's.
