This section is home to our collection of industrial chemistry ebooks. Industrial chemistry can be defined as “chemistry in its industrial applications especially to processes in manufacturing and the arts and to commercial production of chemicals”.
Industrial chemists and chemical engineers are often thought to be the same. Although they are in similar lines of work, their jobs differ in certain ways. As is evident from the name, chemical engineers work within the realms of engineering, while industrial chemists are considered to be scientists, developing formulae and implementing the effects of small-scale chemical reactions on a larger scale.
Industrial chemists need to have an in-depth knowledge of the chemicals they are using. Many works in food safety, tackling issues such as contamination, hydrogenation of fats and oils, canning, and oxidation in foods and beverages.
