Mineral scale deposits, corrosion, suspended matter, and microbiological growth are factors that must be controlled in industrial water systems. Research on understanding the mechanisms of these problems has attracted considerable attention in the past three decades as has progress concerning water treatment additives to ameliorate these concerns.

About the Editor

Zahid Amjad received his MSc in chemistry from Punjab University, Lahore, Pakistan, and his PhD in chemistry from Glasgow University in Scotland. Dr. Amjad was a lecturer at the Institute of Chemistry, Punjab University, and an assistant research professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He began his professional career as an R&D scientist. During his more than 30 years at Calgon Corporation, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and The Lubrizol Corporation, Wickliffe, Ohio (formerly BFGoodrich Performance Materials), he has worked in various fields including cosmetics, home care, oral care, pharmaceuticals, water treatment, and related areas. His areas of research include the development and application of water soluble/swellable polymers, inhibition of mineral scale formation, water purification, and interactions of polymers with different substrates (i.e., heat exchanger, membrane, tooth enamel, hair, fabric, pigments). He has published over 140 technical papers, holds 30 patents, and has edited 5 books. He was inducted into the National Hall of Corporate Inventors and is listed in American Men and Women of Sciences, Who's Who in Technology, and Who's Who of American Inventors. Dr. Amjad was the 2002 recipient of the Association of Water Technologies' Ray Baum Memorial Water Technologist of the Year award. He is currently a technical consultant to Lubrizol Advanced Materials, Inc., Cleveland, Ohio, and the owner of Aqua Science and Technology LLC, Columbus, Ohio, which provides consulting services for industrial water treatment, separation processes, and related technologies.
