"This second edition text is at a more advanced level than the original, reflecting the abundant sources of information that have become available in the last ten years and the authorâs reconsideration of this presentation. Anderson has worked for 30-plus years in the pharmaceutical industry. His text offers a step-by-step approach, beginning with discussion of how and why operations are carried out and then illustrating principles with examples. Coverage encompasses process safety; route, reagent, and solvent selection; effect of water; in-process assays, controls, and specifications; practical considerations for scale-up; refining the process for simplicity and ruggedness; and troubleshooting, among other topics."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2012, page 265 "I would hope that most readers of this journal are very familiar with the first edition of Neal Andersonâs excellent book on Chemical Process Research and Development and are as keen to see the second edition as I was. The good news is that the new edition is bigger (by over 100 pages), better than the original, and cheaperâ¦ The big improvement in the new edition is the layout so that the schemes are now much closer to the relevant text than before which makes reading that much easierâ¦Overall this book is highly recommended even if you already have a copy of the original edition."--Organic Process Research & Development
