Revised from the 1980 Industrial Organic Chemicals in Perspective to update the political and economic contexts in which organic chemists and chemical engineers work with industrial organic chemicals and polymers, with particular emphasis on issues of waste reduction and pollution prevention. Provides an overview of the raw materials, intermediates, and processes in manufacturing such chemicals; details the seven major building blocks derived from petroleum and natural gas; describes polymerization and catalysis, including the new metallocene catalysis; presents lesser-volume chemicals in separate chapters that can be skipped; and notes more profitable specialty chemicals from other sources such as coal, fats and oils, and carbohydrates.
