THIS is a comp~hensivedictionary giving exact definitions of technical terns in common use in the various engineering fields and in chemical technolow. It includes tcrrna u r d in such indusrric~H I aluminum, autonlobile, i n d o n pictures, petrolcum, iron dnd o w l , p:~per,trdlca, and many others. Numerous outstanding technical librarians and educators assisted in its preparation.

BEGINNING in February, 1948, one of the editors of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry has cooperated with members of the technical staff of some organieation to describe comprehensively s. new plant or process, replete with excellent illuatrationa and 5owsheets. In this volume have been collected the 23 articles appearing in 1948 and 1949. Of these, six' describe inorganic processes, and seventeen describe organic processes. All represent new, up-to-the-minute plants and processes. These articles should be useful to students to supplement the older and less com~letematerial found in textbooks. Thia hook., dewite the repetition of ~n:~tcri;,l, will save nuch wrar and e a r on the journsls ~ n for ~ itself l in dccerviug of a place on the library aldf.
