Dr. Peter Pollak, one of many prime experts within the box, offers an insider's precise viewpoint on fantastic chemical substances from either a technological and a advertisement standpoint, masking all fresh advancements. He offers abundant proof and figures together with sixty-three tables, thirty figures, and nineteen picture inserts - making this a well-illustrated and documented text.

This reference is split into 3 parts:

  • Part One: The discusses the categories of good chemical businesses, the variety of goods and prone, the function of study and improvement, the underlying applied sciences, and the demanding situations dealing with management

  • Part : The company explores the main markets for high-quality chemical compounds - equivalent to the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and animal wellbeing and fitness industries - and the suitable advertising and marketing techniques, in addition to the fine details of pricing, distribution channels, highbrow estate rights, account administration, and promotion

  • Part 3: Outlook examines traits similar to globalization and outsourcing, forecasts destiny development and improvement via section, and discusses must haves for achievement within the field

This re-creation positive aspects either up to date and new details at the offer/demand stability for superb chemical substances and the escalating influence of rising businesses in Asia, fairly from China and India. It describes the inversion of the mergers and acquisitions state of affairs from a seller's to a buyer's industry, the broadening of the fantastic chemical enterprise version, and the increasing function of biotechnology, in addition to the impression of elevated outsourcing of chemical production and the turning out to be intake of prescription drugs and agrochemicals through the existence technological know-how undefined. additionally integrated are a number of molecular constructions, engineering diagrams, and tables to facilitate understanding.

For an intensive knowing of the know-how, the enterprise, and the way forward for the wonderful chemical substances undefined, this book's perception is unparalleled. it truly is ultimate for these within the - together with staff, providers, consumers, traders, and consulting businesses - in addition to educational and different learn businesses, scholars and educators, public officers, media representatives, and an individual else who desires to comprehend the intricacies of the industry.

Fine Chemicals has been famous as Outstanding educational name 2012 (Choice, v.50, no. 05, January 2013).

The Chemistry of Alchemy: From Dragon's Blood to Donkey Dung, How Chemistry Was Forged

By Cathy Cobb, Harold Goldwhite

A new angle to the background of technological know-how utilizing  do-it-yourself experiments in addition to short old profiles to illustrate how the traditional alchemists stumbled upon the technological know-how of chemistry.

Be the alchemist! discover the legend of alchemy with the technology of chemistry. take pleasure in over twenty hands-on demonstrations of alchemical reactions. 

In this exploration of the traditional artwork of alchemy, 3 veteran chemists exhibit that the alchemists' quest concerned actual technological know-how and so they recount attention-grabbing tales of the sages who played those unusual experiments.

Why waste extra phrases in this bizarre deviation within the evolution of chemistry? because the authors convey, the writings of medieval alchemists could seem just like the ravings of brain-addled fools, yet there's extra to the tale than that.

Recent scholarship has proven that a few doubtless nonsensical mysticism is, in truth, decipherable code, and Western eu alchemists functioned from a more impregnable theoretical starting place than formerly concept. they'd a tenet, according to event:  separate and purify fabrics through hearth and reconstitute them into items, together with, after all, gold and the common elixir, the Philosophers' stone.

Their efforts weren't in useless:  by trial, by way of mistakes, through layout, and by way of endurance, the alchemists came across acids, alkalis, alcohols, salts, and delightful, strong, and colourful reactions--which should be reproduced utilizing universal items, minerals, metals, and salts.  

So assemble your vats and stoke your fires! prepare to make burning waters, peacocks' tails, Philosophers' stone, and, in fact, gold!
