About Handbook of Rheology Modifiers
This handbook describes more than 9000 trade name and generic chemicals that function as rheology modifiers. Rheology is defined as the science of deformation and flow of matter; additives that affect the rheology of formulations are an integral part of a broad range of formulations. Rheology modifiers are used to achieve a specific effect in the flow characteristic of a product and it is the formulation chemist who is faced with the formidable task of combining many ingredients to form a stable composition that also has the rheological properties that are required.

This reference is a compilation of additives that affect rheology, i.e. antigellants, gellants, flow aids, flow control agents, thickeners, thinners, thixotropes, viscosity builders, viscosity control agents, and viscosity reducers.

Rheology modifiers span the full spectrum of applications ranging from food, personal care and pharmaceutical to oil field and drilling chemicals, inks, polymers, clays, paints, cement and concrete. In all these various industries, the common objective is to achieve the desired flow consistency of the end product.

Entries in this reference for both trade names and generic chemicals contain comprehensive descriptions as well as detailed contact information on suppliers of these chemicals/materials. This invaluable research tool will provide easy access to information for all chemical professionals involved in the use of rheology modifiers in compounding and formulation.

This reference is unique in that it functions as a single source for information on both the trade name products and generic chemicals that are used as rheology modifiers throughout the world. The products described in this Handbook are cross-referenced in multiple ways: chemical names, chemical synonyms, functions/applications, CAS number, and EINECS number.

If you are involved in the formulation of products for industries ranging from adhesives, paints, inks, food, personal care, pharmaceuticals, household products, drilling fluids industry, you will find this reference essential for your work.

Contents
Book and Software:
PART I—Trade Name Reference
This section contains approximately 7000 alphabetical entries of trade name rheology modifiers. Each entry provides information on its manufacturer, chemical composition, CAS and EINECS identifying numbers, general properties, applications and functions, toxicology, compliance, regulatory and storage information as provided by the manufacturer and research.
Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Keyword Indexes: Comprehensive Index, Trade Name X-Ref, Generic Chemical X-Ref, Manufacturers X-Ref, CAS X-Ref, EINECS/ELINCS X-Ref, Functional/Applications X-Ref., Environmental Attributes X-Ref., Toxicity and Precautions X-Ref.
Hyperlinking: Trade names to MFG-Branch, websites, and Generic chemicals section
PART II—Chemical Component Cross-Reference contains an alphabetical listing of more than 2000 generic chemicals and materials that function as rheology modifiers. Each chemical entry includes, wherever possible, its synonyms, CAS number, EINECS number, formula, chemical properties, function and application, toxicology, precautions, usage level, and regulatory information, as well as the worldwide suppliers of these chemicals/materials. If the trade name products from Part I are equivalent to the chemical or contain that chemical compound as the trade name product's major chemical constituent, they are listed in the appropriate chemical entry. The comprehensive list of synonyms for these chemical entries are all cross-referenced back to the main entry so that the user is always able to identify the chemical.
Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Keyword Indexes: Comprehensive Index, Trade Name X-Ref, Generic Chemical X-Ref, Manufacturers X-Ref, CAS X-Ref, EINECS/ELINCS X-Ref, Functional/Applications X-Ref., Environmental Attributes X-Ref., Toxicity and Precautions X-Ref., Molecular Formula Dir.
Hyperlinking: Trade names to Trade name Section,  MFG-Branch section, websites, all cross-references (synonyms) to main entries
PART III—Function/Application Index
This section, with more than 8,300 categories, is a powerful tool for locating materials based on their function and/or industrial application area. By searching on key words such as gellant, flow aid, thickener, or viscosity modifier, etc., within an application area such as foods, inks, paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals, personal care, industrial cleaners, oil-field applications, etc., the user is directed to the trade names and/or chemicals and materials that have that specific functional/application attribute. The generic component names are distinguished from the trade names by bold type (book) and color (software).
Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Hyperlinking: Trade names to Trade name Section, Generics to Generic Chemical section
Part IV—Manufacturers Directory
An alphabetical listing of the international chemical manufacturers of the trade name products and chemical components is provided in this section. Each entry includes branch locations and contact information. Wherever possible, telephone, telefax, toll-free telephone numbers, E-mail and Internet addresses, and complete mailing addresses are included for each manufacturer.
Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Keyword Indexes: Comprehensive Index, Manufacturers Dir., Manufacturers X-Ref
Hyperlinking: All cross-references (alternate names) to main entries; manufacturers websites and email
Additional Indexes:
CAS Number Index contains CAS number entries followed by a listing of their trade name product and chemical equivalents in alphabetical order. The chemical name is in boldfaced type.
EINECS/ELINCS Number Index contains EINECS/ELINCS number entries followed by a listing of its trade name product and generic chemical equivalents in alphabetical order. The chemical name is in boldfaced type.
Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
