About the author

Reviews

@qu:...the introductory material to the book and the summaries which precede each section merit reading by all practising chemical engineers and students. In them are distilled the essence of so many of our current concepts of the subject -never separated from the personality of the man who will have a leading place in the historical development of his subject.
