Chemical Technology in Antiquity

Edited by Seth C. Rasmussen

ACS Symposium Series

  • Most other books on the history of chemistry in antiquity focus on a specific technology, whereas this book provides a broad overview of a range of technologies in antiquity.
  • Touches on a number of smaller subjects often ignored in most presentations of early chemical technology.
  • Includes both chapter authors that are ACS veterans and newer names in the field contributing chapters on lesser-known "chemistry in antiquity" subjects (leather and tanning, oils and perfumes, and soaps).
