The most comprehensive collection of data on thermo-physical properties of chemicals and hydrocarbons ever compiled.
Chemical Engineers; Process Engineers; Chemists; Chemical Engineering Students; Engineers working in process design, plant operations, R&D, and industrial health and safety.
Carl Yaws, a leading authority on chemical compounds in the chemical engineering field, has done it again. In Thermophysical Properties of Chemicals and Hydrocarbons -- an essential volume for any chemist or chemical engineer’s library -- he has amassed over 7,800 organic and inorganic chemicals, and hydrocarbons. Spanning gases, liquids and solids, and covering all critical properties (including acentric factor, density, enthalpy of vaporization, and surface tension), this volume represents more properties on more chemicals than any single work of its kind.
From C1 to C100 organics and Ac to Zr inorganics, the data in this handbook was designed and formatted for field, lab or classroom usage. Organic and inorganic compounds are provided for: critical properties and acentric factor; density of liquid; density of solid; enthalpy of vaporization; enthalpy of vaporization at boiling point; enthalpy of fusion; solubility parameter and liquid volume; Van Der Waals area and volume; radius of gyration; dipole moment; and surface tension. By collecting a massive amount of information in one source, this handbook will simplify your research and significantly reduce the amount of time that you spend collecting properties data.
Chemical and process engineers, chemists, chemical engineering students, and anyone involved in process design, plant operations, R&D, industrial health and safety – and many other fields where finding properties data is important – will appreciate the unparalleled access to the invaluable data found in Thermophysical Properties of Chemicals and Hydrocarbons.
