Chemical engineering emerged upon the development of unit operations, a fundamental concept of the discipline. Most authors agree that Davis invented unit operations if not substantially developed it. He gave a series of lectures on unit operations at the Manchester Technical School in 1887, considered to be one of the earliest such about chemical engineering. Developments in chemical engineering before and after World War II were mainly incited by the petrochemical industry, however, advances in other fields were made as well. Advancements in biochemical engineering in the 1940s, for example, found application in the pharmaceutical industry and allowed for the mass production of various antibiotics including penicillin and streptomycin. Meanwhile, progress in polymer science in the 1950s paved way for the “age of plastics”. The book discusses all basic concepts in a simple way through extensive examples. The presentation of subject and its complex concepts are analysed from all practical point of view. This book is extremely beneficial for the students and research scholars working in this field.
