Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This book should be a required reference on the laboratory's safety shelf as no where else is so much useful information available in a single volume."

—Inside Laboratory Management, on the Second Edition

"...a portable reference on reactive substances to guide all personnel...in charge of the handling, storage, and transportation of chemical materials."

—Journal of the American Chemical Society, on the Second Edition

The authoritative resource on dangerous chemical interactions

Enlarged, revised, and even more useful.

The term "incompatibilities" describes a wide range of chemical reactions that produce undesirable results in noncontrolled situations: the generation of toxic gases, fire, explosions, corrosive activity, polymerization, ruptured containers, creation of more dangerous compounds, and the like. A portable and easy-to-use reference on reactive substances commonly found in commerce, the Wiley Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities, Third Edition compiles hard-to-find data on over 11,000 chemical compounds, providing chemists, technicians, and engineers a thorough, lightning-quick resource to use during experimental preparation and in the event of an emergency.

More than a revision of the previous edition, this Third Edition has been rewritten and expanded to broaden coverage and improve its usefulness. It contains nearly 9,000 chemical incompatibility profiles and nearly 250 new entries, covering flammability, violent and explosive binary reactions, incompatibilities, and reactions that may result from physical change. Alphabetical organization provides concise incompatibility profiles for thousands of commonly used commercial chemicals, allowing readers to look up a given substance and instantly learn whether it is incompatible with common materials, other chemical substances, structural materials, or personal protective equipment.

New for the Third Edition:

  • Chemicals that have the potential to cause disasters

  • Chemical formulas and autoignition temperatures

  • More flash points, as well as molecular formulas, lower and upper explosive limits, autoignition temperatures, and NFPA®-type (Red) numerical fire codes

  • Safety reminders

  • All entries keyed by CAS numbers to eliminate possible confusion among synonyms

  • Spanish-, French-, and German-language entries for international use

  • Revised glossary helps users who may not be chemists with general chemical terms

With thousands of new entries and easy-to-use organization, the Third Edition of the Wiley Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities remains a handy resource for all safety, first-response, and plant management professionals responsible for the handling, storage, and conveyance of chemical materials.

Book News Annotation:

This reference contains representative chemical profiles providing data and guidance about chemical incompatibilities and other hazards of some 11,000 commercial chemicals found in the industrial workplace. The incompatibility profiles are based on available information concerning incompatibility or reactions with common materials or conditions; incompatibility or binary reactions with other chemical substances; incompatibility or reactions with structural materials such as metal, glass, and concrete; incompatibility or reactions with protective materials such as plastics, rubber, and coatings; the ability of chemical substances to accumulate dangerous static electrical charges; and the ability of a chemical to form unstable and potentially hazardous peroxides or to cause polymerization (when polymerization inhibitors are known or recommended, they are included). The chemicals are presented in alphabetical order (with numbers, Greek letters, and other notations such as n- or tert- ignored to allow easier alphabetical location), but can also be located using Chemical Abstracts Service registry numbers. This new edition contains approximately 250 new entries. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Wiley's Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities, Third Edition distills complicated chemical information in a convenient easy-to-use format that helps readers make safe decisions fast. Its alphabetical organization provides concise in-compatibility profiles for thousands of commonly used commercial chemicals, allowing readers to look up a given substance to instantly learn whether it is incompatible with common materials, other chemical substances, structural materials, or personal protective equipment. It provides reliable data on a substance's ability to generate toxic gases, rupture containers, cause polymerization, detonate, or form more dangerous compounds.
