    A practical, concise guide to chemical engineering principles and applications

    Chemical Engineering: The Essential Reference is the condensed but authoritative chemical engineering reference, boiled down to principles and hands-on skills needed to solve real-world problems. Emphasizing a pragmatic approach, the book delivers critical content in a convenient format and presents on-the-job topics of importance to the chemical engineer of tomorrow—OM&I (operation, maintenance, and inspection) procedures, nanotechnology, how to purchase equipment, legal considerations, the need for a second language and for oral and written communication skills, and ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) topics for practicing engineers. This is an indispensable resource for anyone working as a chemical engineer or planning to enter the field.
