Chemical Engineering Handbooks @ NC State

There are three Chemical Engineering Handbooks available online to NC State students: Yaw’s Critical Property Data for Chemical Engineers and Chemists (2012), Albright’s Chemical Engineering Handbook (2009), and Perry’s Chemical Engineers’ Handbook (2007).

Yaw's Critical Property Data for Chemical Engineers and Chemists
Published in 2012, Yaws’ Critical Property Data for Chemical Engineers and Chemists is the newest and most advanced chemical engineering handbook available online. NC State readers have unlimited access to Yaws’ Critical Property Data for Chemical Engineers and Chemists, and it’s 85 interactive tables with Sort and Filter capabilities, covering more than 5,000 inorganic substances and 34,000 organic substances, allows for easy assessment and comparison of data. Also interactive graphs provide visualization of data points and the ability to calculate and plot additional data values as functions of variables such as temperature and pressure.

Albright's Chemical Engineering Handbook
Albright’s Chemical Engineering Handbook also allows multiple simultaneous users, and was designed to be easier to use and understand than the more venerable Perry’s.

Perry's Chemical Engineers' Handbook
Perry’s Chemical Engineers’ Handbook was first published in 1934, and the most current 8th edition was published in 2007. It has been a source of chemical engineering knowledge for more than 70 years. NCSU Libraries has only single user access to the online edition so long waits to get access are possible. If you are an undergraduate student and plan to use Perry’s regularly, a free undergraduate student membership in the American Institute for Chemical Engineers (AIChE) provides the benefit of online access to Perry’s Chemical Engineers’ Handbook and many other resources through the AIChE eLibrary. Graduate student membership is $50 per year. Contact the American Institute of Chemical Engineers at NC State for more information.

There are print reference copies of Perry’s Chemical Engineers’ Handbook at both the D. H. Hill and the James B. Hunt Jr. Libraries, as well as multiple circulating copies that can be checked out from Hunt Library shelves.

For more assistance with Chemical Engineering information resources, contact one of the NCSU Libraries Subject Specialist Librarians in Engineering.

New Reference Work Edited by NCSU Professor Dr. Michael Flickinger

Encyclopedia of Industrial Biotechnology, Bioprocess, Bioseparation, and Cell Technology edited by Michael C. Flickinger, Professor of both Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Microbiology @ NCSU

Encyclopedia of Industrial Biotechnology, Bioprocess, Bioseparation, and Cell Technology

This 7-volume print set, presented in A – Z format, covers existing and emerging aspects of the biotechnology industry, including significant new information on biopharmaceuticals and methods for manufacturing biomaterials, production of vaccines, tissue engineering, biosensors, bioelectronics, bioarrays, and bio-nanotechnology.

Dr. Michael C. Flickinger

Dr. Michael C. Flickinger is the Associate Director for Academic Programs of the Golden LEAF Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) and a Professor of Microbiology and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at NC State.
From 1985 to 1992 Dr. Flickinger was Director of the University of Minnesota’s Institute for Advanced Studies in Biological Process Technology (BPTI), which was later renamed the Biotechnology Institute (BTI), and a Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul. Prior to coming to Minnesota Dr. Flickinger was Director of the Fermentation Program at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, Maryland.
Dr. Flickinger received his academic training at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He graduated with honors earning a B.S. degree in microbial biochemistry in 1973. He then moved to the School of Pharmacy for his graduate work and received M.S. (1975) and Ph.D. degrees (1977) in pharmaceutical biochemistry. He did his postdoctoral work at the Laboratory for Renewable Resources Engineering (LORRE) in the School of Chemical Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana.
He is Co-Editor of the Encyclopedia of Bioprocess Technology: Fermentation, Biocatalysis and Bioseparation (Wiley, 1999).
