Description

Covering more than 7,800 organic and inorganic chemicals and hydrocarbons, Transport Properties of Chemical and Hydrocarbons, Second Edition is an essential volume for any chemist or chemical engineer. Spanning gases, liquids, and solids, the book covers all critical properties (including viscosity, thermal conductivity, and diffusion coefficient).

From C1 to C100 organics and Ac to Zr inorganics, the data in this handbook is a perfect quick reference for field, lab, or classroom use. By collecting a massive – but relevant – amount of information in one source, the handbook enables engineers to spend more time developing new designs and processes, and less time collecting vital properties data.

This is not a theoretical treatise, but an aid to the practicing engineer in the field, on day-to-day operations and long-range projects.

Key Features

  • Simplifies research and significantly reduces the amount of time spent collecting properties data
  • Compiled by an expert in the field, the book provides engineers with data they can trust
  • All critical properties are covered for ease of reference, including viscosity, thermal conductivity, and diffusion coefficient

Readership

Chemical and process engineers, chemists, chemical engineering students, and anyone involved in process design, plant operations, R&D, industrial health and safety
