Unlike extensive major reference works or handbooks, Chemical Engineering provides readers with a ready reference to the latest techniques in selected areas of chemical engineering where research is and will be focused in the future. These areas are bioseparations, particle science and design, nanotechnology, and reaction engineering. The book provides academic and researchers with an overview of the main areas of technical development and how these techniques can be applied. Each chapter focuses on a technique and a selection of applications or examples of where the technique could be applied.
