Description

Providing 95 percent of the 500 billion pounds of organic chemicals produced in the world, the petroleum and natural gas industries are responsible for products that ensure our present quality of life. This book examines why each of these chemical buidling blocks - ethylene, propylene, C4 olefins (butenes and butadiene), benzene toluene, ethe zylenes, and methane - is perferred over another in the context of an evironmental issue or manufacturing process, as well as their individual chemistry, derivatives, method of manufacture, uses, and economic significance.
