4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sumit Chowdhury on May 28, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is a comprehensive reference book for students studying for an advanced degree in petrochemicals, hydrocarbon chemistry or catalysis. It is almost as useful for professionals in the refining and petrochem field. I found the focus to be a little less on information technology tools than would be expected of a more current book. Due to the slow growth of the technology in this field, most of it is still up-to-date and still very useful. A handy advanced reference book, overall.
