Beyond the Molecular Frontier: Challenges for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering by CCCS
Publisher: National Academies Press | March 1, 2003 | ISBN: 0309084776 | 240 pages | PDF | 9.21 MB
Chemistry and chemical engineering have changed significantly since the 1990s. They have broadened their scope - into biology, nanotechnology, materials science, computation and advanced methods of process systems engineering and control - so much that the programmes in most chemistry and chemical engineering departments now barely resemble the classical notion of chemistry. "Beyond the Molecular Frontier" brings together research, discovery and invention across the entire spectrum of the chemical sciences - from fundamental, molecular-level chemistry to large-scale chemical processing technology.
