Introductory Elements of the Chemical Process – Felder, Rousseau – 3rd Edition


In recent decades, chemical engineering has undergone changes, so this classic stoichiometry has been revised and updated to adapt to the new curricula of the subject, where new areas of engineering application are considered, such as environmental engineering, biotechnology and microelectronics. In addition to the clarity of exposure, the work includes problems and studies taken from real situations in the industry and the use of new computer tools for solving problems.

This text presents a realistic, informative and positive introduction to the practice of chemical engineering in the professional field. It is an excellent textbook for understanding fundamental concepts of chemical engineering, learning how to formulate and solve matter and energy balances in chemical process systems, and initiate students in solving thermodynamic problems.
