Perrys Chemical Engineering Handbook 8E
Perry’s has been an important source of information related to the fundamentals and practice of chemical engineering since it was first published in 1934, with John H. Perry both the initiator and editor. Several chemical engineers, serving as editor or coeditor-in-chief, have guided the preparation of the different editions over the years. These include John H. Perry (first to third editions), Robert H. Perry (fourth to sixth editions), Cecil H. Chilton (fourth and fifth editions), Sidney D. Kirkpatrick (fourth edition), Don W. Green (sixth to eighth editions) and James O. Maloney (sixth and seventh editions). Robert H. Perry was also listed as an editor for the seventh edition, and is listed again as an editor for the current edition, although his tragic death occurred during the preparation of the sixth edition. Many of the ideas developed through his leadership during preparation of earlier editions carried over to the seventh and eighth editions. I owe much to the friendship and mentoring of Bob Perry.
