History of the International Chemical Industry: From the "Early Days" to 2000

by Fred Aftalion (Author)

Product Description
Fred Aftalion's international perspective of the history of chemistry integrates
the story of chemical science with that of chemical industry. This new edition
includes events from 1990 to 2000, when major companies began selling off their
divisions, seeking to specialize in a particular business. Aftalion explores the
pitfalls these companies encountered as well as the successes of
"contrarians"--those companies that remained broad and diversified. He uses
BASF, Dow, and Bayer as examples of true contrarians.
