Handbook of Viscosity: Volume 4:

Inorganic Compounds and Elements


  • Carl L. Yaws, Professor of chemical engineering (retired), Lamar University, Beaumont, TX, USA

Volume 4 expands this series to include inorganic compounds and elements in addition to the organic compounds covered in the first three volumes. The data are presented in graphs for viscosity as a function of temperature. The graphs are arranged by chemical formula to provide ease of use; many of them cover the full range from melting point to boiling point to critical point. Common units are used, but each graph displays a conversion factor to provide English units.
