You have found the permanent home for the History of Chemical Engineering web site. We have been online since 1995, but joined this site (pafko.com) on September 18,
2000. We are very happy to have a new web home and hope you enjoy it! Please let us
know what you think.
Also, we are now willing to accept supplementary materials. If you have something that you
think our visitors would find enjoyable and informative please let us know. We will consider
placing it online...
