|What's special / Useful in this book||interesting|
I am delighted to know that my book " A Text Book on Petrochemicals " is getting ready to be on the stands as Fifth Edition. This small endeavor has become successful because of the interest shown by the academics and industry. In the book some old statistics are replaced with the latest and it also incorporates some new developments in recent years. However in some places the old data and statistics have also been kept as such so that the students would able to judge the past history and compare the growth of the industry. I welcome all the readers to offer suggestions regarding the improvement of the text.
