THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO MANUFACTURING WITH ORGANIC CHEMICALS

Critical to truly understanding pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, polymers, and plastics, the Handbook of Industrial Chemistry provides the chemical properties and principles for the analyses and processes used in producing non-petroleum-based organic products.

Packed with useful tables, formulas, and equations, this problem-solving handbook provides coverage, which ranges from basic to complex, of the chemical processes for products such as:

  • Paints, pigments, and industrial coatings
  • Dyestuffs, and finishing and dyeing of textiles
  • Industrial fermentation
  • Chemical explosives
  • Non-petroleum processing and petrochemicals
  • Polymers and plastics

About the Author

Mohammad Farhat Ali, Ph.D., is Professor of Industrial and Petroleum Chemistry at King Faud University of Petroleum and Minerals in Saudi Arabia. An expert in characterization studies of heavy ends, residues, and asphalt, he is also knowledgeable about crude oils and products, refining process technology, waste oil recycling, and stability characteristics of jet fuels. He lives in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.

Bassam M. El Ali, Ph.D., is Professor of Industrial Chemistry at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in Saudi Arabia. His specialties include homogenous and heterogenous catalysis using transition metal complexes in hydrocarboxylation, hydroformylation, oxidation, coupling, hydrogenation, and other important processes; investigation of organometallic intermediates and the mechanisms of various homogenous reactions; and synthesis, characterization, and application of various supported catalytic systems in the production of fine chemicals. He has taught many industrial chemistry courses including Industrial Catalysis, Industrial Organic Chemistry, Industrial Inorganic Chemistry, and Petroleum Processes.

James G. Speight, Ph.D. has more than 35 years' experience in fields related to the properties and processing of conventional and synthetic fuels. He has participated in, and led, significant research in defining the uses of chemistry with heavy oil and coal. The author of well over 400 professional papers, reports, and presentations detailing his research activities, he has taught more than 50 related courses. Dr. Speight is the author, editor, or compiler of a total of 25 books and bibliographies related to fossil fuel processing and environmental issues. He lives in Laramie, Wyoming.
