Review quote

'A beginner in any discipline could use it for research inspiration and as a starting point....The last chapter is a delightful treatment of the fascinating realm of mixing processes. Chemical recipes are given in the appendixes...It is for any chemist,physicist,biologist, or mathmatician, from the undergradute to the professor, who wishes to be introduced to this beautiful area' Chemical Intelligencershow more
