An essential introduction to the organic chemicals
industry?in the context of globalization, advances in
technology, and environmental concerns

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. Products as diverse as gasoline, plastics,
detergents, fibers, pesticides, tires, lipstick, shampoo, and
sunscreens are based on seven raw materials derived from petroleum
and natural gas. In an updated and expanded Third Edition,
Industrial Organic Chemicals examines why each of these
chemical building blocks?ethylene, propylene, C4 olefins
(butenes and butadiene), benzene toluene, the xylenes, and
methane?is preferred over another in the context of an
environmental issue or manufacturing process, as well as their
individual chemistry, derivatives, method of manufacture, uses, and
economic significance.

The new edition details the seismic shifts in the world's
chemistry industry away from the United States, Western Europe and
Japan, transforming the Middle East and Asia-Pacific region,
especially China, into major players. The book also details:

The impact of globalization on the patterns of worldwide
transportation of chemicals, including methods of shipping

The technological advances in the area of polymerization and
catalysis, including catalyst design and single-site catalysts

Chemicals for electronics, with much new material on conducting
polymers, photovoltaic cells, and related materials

The discovery of vast reserves of shale gas and shale oil,
altering long-term predictions of resource depletion in the United
States and other countries

Commercial and market aspects of the chemical industry, with
coverage of emerging new companies such as INEOS, Formosa Plastics,
LyondellBasell, and SABIC

With expanded coverage on the vital role of green chemistry,
renewables, chemicals and fuels on issues of sustainability and
climate change, Industrial Organic Chemicals offers an
unparalleled examination of what is at the heart of this
multi-billion dollar industry, how globalization has transformed
it, and its ever growing role in preserving the Earth and its
