Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This overview of diffusion and separation processes brings unsurpassed, engaging clarity to this complex topic. Diffusion is a key part of the undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum and at the core of understanding chemical purification and reaction engineering. This spontaneous mixing process is also central to our daily lives, with importance in phenomena as diverse as the dispersal of pollutants to digestion in the small intestine. For students, Diffusion goes from the basics of mass transfer and diffusion itself, with strong support through worked examples and a range of student questions. It also takes the reader right through to the cutting edge of our understanding, and the new examples in this third edition will appeal to professional scientists and engineers. Retaining the trademark enthusiastic style, the broad coverage now extends to biology and medicine.

Synopsis:

The clearest coverage available of diffusion and mass transfer, which is a key part of the chemical engineering curriculum.

Synopsis:

This textbook provides a clear and complete description of diffusion in fluids, the spontaneous mixing of different states that is fundamental in chemical engineering, chemistry and biology. Earlier textbooks on diffusion have given the subject a reputation for being difficult and have appealed most to students with a background in engineering and mathematics. Dr Cussler's informal style will appeal to all students. He includes numerous simple examples and some numerical exercises that emphasize and apply basic concepts in great detail. The book assumes no prior knowledge of other phenomena and will be a valuable introduction for students of chemistry and biology as well as engineering.

About the Author

Professor Cussler teaches chemical engineering at the University of Minnesota. His research, which centers on membrane separations, has led to over 200 papers and four books. A member of the National Academy of Engineering, he has received the Colburn and Lewis Awards from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Separations Science Award from the American Chemical Society, the Merryfield Design Award from the American Society for Engineering Education, and honorary doctorates from the universities of Lund and Nancy.
