89 years of expertise in applied and industrial chemistry - "Ullmann's" is back in print! Generations of chemists and engineers have relied on the well structured and trusted information from "Ullmann's Encyclopedia" - and you still can count on "Ullmann's" with the current 6th edition in print. "Ullmann's" is a synonym for the world's most current and trustworthy knowledge in everything that relates to the chemical industry, be it processes, chemicals, products, analytical chemistry, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology...you name it, "Ullmann's" has it - well over 800 articles on over 30 000 printed pages in 40 volumes. Organized in alphabetical order, the chapters are easy to read and excellent starting points to introduce you to any topic. Over 15000 tables and 25000 figures (some of them in color) make it easy for you to quickly find what you are looking for. Countless literature and patent references guide you to the relevant and accessible primary literature. Numerous cross-references point you to relevant chapters in the same context and a well organized index volume enables searching for keywords. Finding what you need is very simple indeed and you won't have to ask for a user's manual for this massive work! Supervised by an internationally acclaimed advisory board, the articles are written by over 3000 international experts from industry and universities, thoroughly edited to uniform style and layout in an in-house office. All figures are re-drawn to give a maximum of clarity and uniformity in style. Compared to the prior edition, almost 60 per cent of the material has either been newly written or thoroughly updated. The rest has been checked for validity and newer references have been added throughout.
