Computer Aided Chemical Engineering is a book series which publishes theme volumes and conference proceedings in the application of computing and systems technology to chemical engineering problems. Several major areas are represented in the series, including modeling, numerical analysis and simulation; mathematical programming(optimization); cyberinfrastructure, informatics and intelligent systems; process and product synthesis/design; process dynamics, control and monitoring; abnormal events management and process safety; plant operations, integration, planning/scheduling and supply chain; enterprise-wide management andtechnology-driven policy making and domain applications (molecular, biological, pharmaceutical, food, energy, and environmental systems engineering). For information about the series or to submit a proposal, please contact the Series Editors or the Acquisitions Editor, Susan Dennis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most recent volume
Tools for Chemical Product Design: From Consumer Products to Biomedicine describes the challenges involved in systematic product design across a variety of industries and provides a comprehensive overview of mathematical tools aimed at the design of chemical products, from molecular design to customer products.
Chemical product design has become increasingly important over the past decade and includes a wide range of sectors including gasoline additives and blends in the petroleum industry, active ingredients and excipients in the pharmaceutical industry, and a variety of consumer products and specialty chemicals. Traditionally, such products have been designed through trial and error methods, which not only are time-consuming, but more importantly only provide limited knowledge that can be translated into next generation products.
