K. R. Payne
Wiley, May 6, 1987 - Science - 114 pages
This present volume completes the review first conducted in Chemicals from Coal: New Developments, Critical Reports on Applied Chemistry, Volume 9, which included chapters on the overall economics of coal chemistry and recent technical advances in the pyrolysis and liquefaction of coal. Volume 14 considers the production of coal-based chemicals with chapters on the gasification of coal, the Fischer-Tropsch process, and a study of the calcium carbide route to coal-derived chemicals.
