Ajay Ray, a professor in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, has been selected to serve as the Volume Editor for the sixth edition of Coulson and Richardson Chemical Engineering Volume 2B: Separation Processes.

John M. Coulson and John F. Richardson co-wrote a textbook on chemical engineering first published in 1954, which developed into an established series of six textbooks known as Coulson & Richardson’s Chemical Engineering book series.  

The pair was responsible for the contents of the first two volumes, while they were editors for the rest of the series of six volumes. Richardson continued editing the series after the death of Coulson in 1990.
