Thermodynamic property data are important in many engineering applications in the chemical processing and petroleum refining industries. The "Handbook of Thermodynamic Diagrams" series presents volume and enthalpy diagrams (graphs) for the major organic chemicals and hydrocarbons, as well as the major inorganic compounds and elements. The graphs, arranged by carbon number and chemical formula, cover a wide range of pressures and temperatures to enable engineers to determine quickly values at various points. This volume covers inorganic compounds and elements.

The plant world represents a vast renewable resource for production of food, chemicals and energy. The utilization of this resource is frequently limited by moisture, temperature or salt stress. The emphasis of this volume is on the molecular basis of osmoregulation, adaptation to salt and water stress and applica tions for plant improvement. A unified concept of drought, salt, thermal and other forms of stress is proposed and discussed in the publication. The volume developed from a symposium entitled "Genetic Engi neering of Osmoregulation: Impact on Plant Productivity for Food, Chemicals and Energy," organized by D. W. Rains and R. C. Valentine in cooperation with Brookhaven National Laboratory and directed by D. W. Rains and A. Hollaender. The program was supported by a grant from the National Science Founda~ion, Division of Problem Focused Research, Problem Analysis Group, and the Department of Energy. This symposium is one of several in the past and pending which deal with potential applications of genetic engineering in agri culture. Since the question was raised several times during the meeting it is perhaps a convenient time to attempt to define gene tic engineering in the context of the meeting. • Genetic engineering of osmoregulation is simply the application of the science of genetics toward osmo tically tolerant microbes and plants. • Recombinant DNA is regarded as just another tool along with conventional genetics to be utilized for improvement of microbes and plants.

"Written by one of the most prolific and well-respected chemical engineers that the industry has ever produced. The Yaws Handbook of Thermodynamic Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals is the most comprehensive and thorough volume ever written on the thermodynamic properties of hydrocarbons and chemicals. Carl Yaws is the world's foremost authority on vapor pressure and the properties of chemicals and he again proves it in this follow up to his important work published in 2005 by GPC Books, The Yaws' Handbook of Physical Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals. Covering the thermodynamic properties of hydrocarbons and chemicals, this volume covers the spectrum, including chapters on the heat capacity and entropy of gas, the heat capacity and entropy of solids, the heat capacity of liquids, the entropy of formation and many other topics. Including more than 12,800 organic and inorganic chemicals, this resourceful work covers C1 to C100 organics and Ac to Zr inorganics collected together in one volume, making it most useful for any chemical engineer's library. Not just useful for the scientist in the lab or the student, this volume provides valuable information for the engineer working in the field. The design of heat exchangers and other equipment for heating or cooling substances to temperatures necessary in process applications requires knowledge of heat capacity, covered in the first portion of the book. The heat effects of chemical reactions are ascertained from enthalpy of formation, covered in chapter four. Other chapters cover the Helmholtz energy of formation, the Gibbs energy of formation, internal energy of formation and entropy of formation, useful in modeling and ascertaining the energy of explosions. The thermodynamic properties provided in the book are important in design, operations, research, development, environmental and safety, covering literally thousands of compounds. This coverage greatly exceeds the coverage of any other book and makes The Yaws Handbook of Thermodynamic Properties of Hydrocarbons and Chemicals a must-have for anyone working in the fields of chemical engineering, process engineering, refining and chemistry."--Publisher's website.
