"Applications of Wet-end Paper Chemistry" bridges the gap between the theory and practice of wet-end paper chemistry by explaining how particular chemicals are chosen and put to use in real situations. A number of international experts in the field present recent contributions on the optimum use of chemicals in papermaking. Major inroads have taken place since the first edition of this title was published in 1995. This new edition of "Applications of Wet-end Paper Chemistry" will reflect the changing type and use of chemicals used in papermaking in the 21st century. Chemists and chemical engineers across the paper and pulp making industry, as well as in research and academic institutes will find this book of enormous practical value.
