    Book details

Understanding the fundamental science of the Fine Chemicals industry is necessary in the development of efficient, high-yielding and environmentally friendly processes. This is the first text to specifically address this topic by covering the physiochemical principles underpinning the subject. It outlines the strategy for obtaining the requisite data, and the chemical and chemical engineering concepts involved in process development. These include a description of pre-reaction equilibria in single and two-phase systems, factors influencing selectivity in competing reactions, mixing effects in single and two-phase reactions, the science behind workup processes and a discussion of the principles behind scale-up.

"This book [makes] invaluable reading for undergraduates with a basic knowledge of physical organic chemistry and algebra. I recommend it."James Betts in Education in Chemistry, May 2001

Review Text

  • By Loz on 29 August 2010

    Understanding chemical processes is a pre-requisite to being able to control them. This is ever so important with respect to the ICH triumvirate Q8-10 which connects Design Space to risk and continuous improvement. In this respect this Oxford primer is a powerful resource to the process chemist and touches upon key areas such as mixing, competing reactions, pre-equilibria, solubility, and multi-phase systems amongst others. Key principles behind scale-up are also discussed, as is the often neglected art of work-up.Excellent value for money, this book also functions as a great course companion to "Bridging the Gap between Lab and Pilot Plant" that John runs through Scientific Update."

    These Oxford Chemistry Primers entered the market just over 15 years ago. Great value for an authoritative brief introduction to topics which you don't want to spend the time or money buying massive textbooks for!
