Overview for Petrochemical Production Processes
Petrochemical are chemical products made from raw materials of petroleum origin (Hydrocarbon). Petrochemicals have had a dramatic impact on our food, clothing, shelter and leisure. Some synthetics, tailored for particular uses, actually perform better than products made by nature because of their unique properties. The two main classes of petrochemical raw materials are olefins (including ethylene and propylene) and aromatics (Including benzene and xylne isomers), both of which are produced in very large quantities. This is the first part of two-volume book about the petrochemical production and process description. In the first part, important petrochemical compounds alcohols and aldehydes, butylenes, butadiene, ethylene, propylene, toluene, styrene, acetylene, benzene, ethylene oxide, ethylene glycol, acrylonitrile, acetone, acetic acid, acetic anhydride, and ammonia are discussed. In the second volume, a full process description and polymerization processes for production of high density polyethylene in a slurry and gas phases-Ziegler Natta catalysis polymerization process, low density polyethylene in a radical polymerization as bulk phase in high pressure, polypropylene in slurry and gas phases-Zeigler Natta and Metallocene catalysis polymerization process, Poly vinyl chloride in a suspension radical polymerization, styrene butadiene rubber in a emulsion copolymerisation and polystyrene will be discussed. Petrochemical Production Processes is an invaluable reference for chemical, petroleum, and process engineers; chemists; chemical technologists; petroleum analysts; and students in these disciplines. This book will be a welcome addition to the reference collection of large academic libraries at Universities with programs in petroleum engineering.
