Special Study: Chemical Engineering
This Nuffield Advanced Chemistry Special Study enabled students to see something of the scope of the field of chemical engineering, and to appreciate its dependence upon chemical principles The objectives were to show:
• that chemical engineers are concerned with the economic production of chemicals.
• that chemical engineering is the application of the principles of mathematics, physics, and chemistry to the production of chemical substances.
• some of the work in which the chemical engineer becomes involved.
• factors which are often unimportant on a laboratory scale may become very important on a large scale.
• the importance of the chemical industry to the national economy.

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
