Subject: Industrial chemicals reference source?

Hello, all!

I have someone looking for a reference source which she has used before,
but which I can't seem to identify. It's a set (approximately 18 volumes)
with a title similar to "Industrial Chemicals". The index volume lists
compounds by chemical name, then gives references to the text, which
describes industrial uses (for instance, 1,2-dihydromaniac: as a catalyst,
vol 4... in the glass industry, vol 3...). She said that the index entry
alone is extremely useful unless you need details. She thinks the set is
bound in black or another dark color, and the volumes are not large (about
one inch think and less than 8.5 x 11). She described the text as
providing "blurb"-like summaries of the compounds' use in a particular
industry.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? I've gone through our reference
collection, and haven't found anything that seems to match.

I should have added that she is sure that it is not Kirk-Othmer.

Thank you for any hints you can offer!

Ann

The one that would seem to most closely match the title you have been
given is Ullmann Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry.

The Dictionary of Chemical Technology (Kirk-Othmer) and SRI Chemical
Economics Handbook would also likely have some sort of blurb about
chemcials as well.

Ann,

You may be thinking of the Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemical Additives
(a 4-volume set of smallish books bound in dark red), compiled by
Michael and Irene Ash. This looks pretty much like what you've
described, except for the number of volumes. The first three volumes,
published in 1984, are arranged alphabetically by general application
(absorbents through whitening agents); within each section, chemicals
are listed by trade name. The information for each listing includes the
supplier, other chemical names, and more details on
categories/applications of the substance. Volume 4, published in 1987,
is a supplement.

Let me know if you need any further information about these books, such
as their ISBNs.

Hi, Ann-

Hm! A classic "Red book on the third shelf from the door" query.

Except for the size and the entry length, my first guess was the Chemical
Economics Handbook (but no one can afford that any more). Sax's Dangerous
Properties of Industrial Chemicals (right entry length, but only one
volume!). It doesn't sound much like Ullmann's.

Good luck!

Ann

one set which fits the physical description is "encyclopedia of industrial
chemical analysis" by Snell and Ettre. Published 1974. It is 20 volumes;
dark green. But these are analytical methods, but the article of copper
for instance lists uses of the copper compounds.

Ann,

This is a great question. From the description, I immediately thought
of Fieser's Reagent For Organic Synthesis. I look forward to the
suggestions of others.

Hi Ann,
This might be the Chemical Formulary, (however, there are many
volumes). This is "a collection of valuable, timely, practical commercial
formulae and recipes for making thousands of products in many fields of
industry." Editor: 1933- H. Bennett. Published: New York,
Chemical Publishing Co.

If I were a betting man, this sound like a classic case of characteristics
from more than one source merging into a single source in the patron's
mind.

The first two items listed below (Encycl. of ind. chem. additives & Encycl.
of Chemical Trademarks) are 3 very similar sized volumes each and bound in
dark red and similar page formats. But that gets you to 6 volumes, not 18.

The Industrial Research Service's handbook of material trade names has
different colored volumes of different thickness. At least an original
volume plus 4 supplements were published from 1953-1965. (These are
invaluable for tracking down old industrial prodcuts. I would advise
rethinking any decision to discard them if you have them.)

I can not imagine a set of 18 volumes with "brief blurbs" on industrial
chemicals. There is no way you could fill that many volumes with such
short descriptions. So I suspect that the patron is indeed confusing
Ullmann's Encycl. of Industrial Chem. (bound in black) with one or more the
sources below.
