Hydrocarbons - Physical Properties and their Relevance to Utilisation

Hydrocarbons - Physical Properties and their Relevance to Utilisation

This is a free, online textbook offered by Bookboon.com.  "The book is concerned with properties such as density, refractive index, acoustic impedance and electrical conductivities of hydrocarbon substances. Pure organic compounds feature early in the book chiefly to set benchmark values for the various physical properties later discussed for hydrocarbon products. These include petroleum products across the entire distillation range as well as petroleum residue. Natural gas condensate, liquefied gases, coal tars, biodiesels and alcohol fuels also feature in the book."
