Each having served giant oil companies for 40 years or more in technical and commercial areas, Burdick and Leffler set out the materials and processes involved for people who are not scientists or engineers. They suggest that it can be used either as a tutorial on petrochemicals and the economics of the business, or as a reference. Introductory chapters review fundamentals of organic chemistry and processes and equipment, then the five building blocks of petrochemicals are profiled in turn. First and second line derivatives--the 17 chemicals themselves--are covered in self-contained chapters. Among them are ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol, methanol and synthesis gas, formaldehyde and acetaldehyde, and alpha olefins. A chapter then looks at making polymers from petrochemicals and the remaining chapters consider such examples as thermoplastics, polyurethane, and epoxy resins and polycarbonates. The third edition hit the streets ten years ago. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
