Welcome to the home of the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology Online! Here you will find the internationally acclaimed content of the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology with a search engine and an interface which allows you to call up information covering the entire chemical industry and allied fields any time with a click of your mouse from the library, the office, or the laboratory.
The Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology is designed to present the versatile field of chemical technology to professionals who wish to learn about technologically important materials, established as well as cutting edge methods, and relevant phenomena.
Although a large amount of information regarding chemistry and chemical technology is now available through various communication channels, the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology has kept its unique role as "the best reference of chemical technology" since the first edition was published in 1949, by providing the necessary perspective and insight into pertinent aspects, rather than merely regurgitating information that could be found elsewhere. Written by prominent scholars from industry, academia, and research institutions, the Encyclopedia brings together and treats systematically facts on the properties, manufacturing, and uses of chemicals and materials, processes, and engineering principles, coupled with insights into current research, emerging technologies and economic aspects. Environmental and health concerns are also addressed.
Updated regularly, Kirk-Othmer Online stays current with developments in chemical technology and related fields. New and revised articles are posted monthly; older versions of such articles may still be accessed in an archived form. You can search for a topic by phrases, author, article title, or keywords (SEARCH IN THIS TITLE) and browse the alphabetical and subject lists of articles (BROWSE ARTICLES BY). Complimentary ABSTRACTS for all the articles are also provided.
The Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology was made possible by the hard work of many hundreds of individuals, most notably contributors, and many reviewers and other advisors, who dedicated their precious time and expertise to this publication.
