Diffusion is as central to our daily lives as it is to the chemical industry. It is a spontaneous mixing process basic to such diverse phenomena as transport in living cells, the efficiency of distillation, and the dispersal of pollutants. This second edition of a highly acclaimed text provides a clear and complete description of diffusion in fluids. It retains the features that won praise for the first edition - informal style, emphasis on physical insight and basic concepts, and lots of simple examples. The new edition offers increased coverage of unit operations, with chapters on absorption, distillation, extraction and adsorption. New chapters on membranes and drug release broaden the book's scope. The entire text is extensively illustrated, and many new worked examples and homework problems have been added.

'Very effective in leading the reader from one level of sophistication to the next … a wide variety of examples is presented from areas such as bioengineering, food science, and electrochemistry, in addition to traditional areas of chemical engineering … In summary, this is an outstanding example of a text written by an expert in the field.' Journal of the American Chemical Society
'… will amply serve the needs of chemical engineers (at graduate level as well as undergraduate levels) and also chemists, biologists, life scientists and others with little prior backround in engineering or mathematics … Overall I am very impressed with the lucid style, clarity of presentation, quality of the illustrative examples and the large number of very interesting problems.' Canadian Chemical News
'Up to date, self-contained … a very enjoyable book for beginners.' American Scientist
'Written in a refreshing style … the emphasis of the book is on the applications of diffusion equations.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
