Specialty Chemicals Source Book by Michael Ash

The specialty chemical industry is focused on the development of chemicals and materials from the perspective of function and market value. The emphasis is not on the empirical structure of these chemicals, but on how they serve end-user markets. The growth of specialty chemicals as a global industry, is tied to exploring and expanding functions and applications for both new and existing chemicals that can serve traditional and niche markets, as well as bringing these chemicals to new geographic markets. It is essential for those involved in the production and distribution of specialty chemicals to have ready access to a reference that contains integrated information on these chemicals, their properties, functional and application market sectors, manufacturers and distributors. Specialty Chemicals Source Book, now in its Fourth Edition, serves this purpose. It has been extensively revised and expanded and now contains approximately 18,000 monographs on this group of chemicals with 70,000 cross-referenced chemical synonyms, and more than 60,000 trade name equivalents. It also contains a Function/Application Index which functions as a powerful tool for locating chemicals based on functions and industrial application areas. By searching for functional key words such as catalyst, moisture scavenger, plasticizer or application key words, such as inks, coatings, elastomers, thermoplastic resins, the user is directed to the appropriate specialty chemical monographs. There is a Manufacturers Directory, a CAS Registry Number Index, EINECS/ELINCS Number Index, and a Chemical Formula Index
