Chemical Properties Handbook (McGraw-Hill Handbooks)by Carl L. Yaws
Synopses & Reviews
Accurate information on how chemicals behave at different temperaturesand under different conditions is often hard-to-find or difficult tocalculate. This unique Handbook provides scientific, engineering, andenvironmental professionals and students with this necessaryinformation, in an all-in-one, easy-access format. This long-neededhandbook covers both organic (C1 to C28 compounds) and inorganic (Agto Zn compounds) substances, and provides both experimental valuesbased on methods developed by the author and other noted experts. Itcan save countless hours of searching for the right source orperforming complicated calculations. Applications to Engineering andAll the Sciences: OBTAIN CRITICAL VALUES for temperature and pressurefor design or operation of compressors and turbines; FIND HEATCAPACITY DATA for heat exchangers; ACCURATELY DESIGN AND SAFELYOPERATE vaporizes and condensers with precise information on enthalpyof vaporization; SIZE VAPORIZER/CONDESER storage vessels with densitydata; DETERMINE THE HEATING AND COOLING REQUIREMENTS of reactors withvalues for the enthalpy of formation; DETERMINE CHEMICAL EQUILIBRIAfor reactions using Gibbs' energy of formation; DESIGN AND OPERATEEFFECTIVE STRIPPING OPERATIONS for water pollutant removal using watersolubility data and Henry's Law Constant; FIND NEEDED ADSORPTIONCAPACITIES of activated carbon for cleaning air of various pollutants.USE SOIL ADSORPTION CAPACITIES of activated carbon for cleaning air ofvarious pollutants. USE SOIL SORPTION COEFFICIENT for agriculturalapplications. SOLVE PROBLEMS FOR FLUID FLOW of gases and liquids inpipes using viscosity data. USE THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY DATA for heattransfer problems of gases and liquids. USE LOWER EXPLOSION LIMIT,upper explosion limit, flash point and autoignition temperature forsafety applications. USE THRESHOLD LIMIT VALUE (ACGGIH), permissibleexposure limit (NIOSH) to design facilities while safeguarding health;USE THERMAL EXPANSION COEFFICIENT DATA to design relief systems; PLUSthousands of other time-saving uses.
Book News Annotation:
Provides scientific, engineering, and environmental professionals and students with accurate information on how chemicals behave at different temperatures and under different conditions. Covers organic and inorganic substances, and gives both experimental values and estimated values based on methods developed by the author and other noted experts. Most information is presented in tabular form. Appendices offer conversion tables and equations, and lists of compounds by chemical formula, CAS registry number, and name.

It also helps: solve problems for fluid flow of gases and liquids using viscosity data; use thermal conductivity data for heat transfer applications; use lower and upper explosion limits in air, flock point and autoignition temperature for safety in designs and operations; use threshold limit value (ACGIH), permissible exposure limit (OSHA) and recommended exposure limit (NIOSH) to design facilities while safeguarding health; use thermal expansion coefficient data to design relief systems; and find thousands of other time-saving uses.
Necessary data that's often hard to find or difficult to calculate, all in one place, in easy-access format. That's what this Handbook provides to scientific, engineering, and environmental professionals, and students, who seek information on how chemicals will behave at different temperatures and under different conditions. Covering both organic and inorganic substances, and providing both experimental values and estimated values based on methods developed by the author and other noted experts, this book can save countless hours of searching for the right source or performing complicated calculations. Useful for hundreds of on-the-job information requirements, this much-needed Handbook makes it easy to obtain critical values for temperature and pressure for design or operation of compressors and turbines; find heat capacity data for heat exchangers; accurately design and safely operate vaporizers and condensers with precise information on enthalpy of vaporization; size vaporizer/condenser storage vessels with density data; determine the heating and cooling requirements of reactors with values for the enthalpy of formation; determine chemical equilibria for reactions using Gibbs energy of formation; design and operate effective stripping operations for water pollutant removal using water solubility data and Henrys Law Constant; find needed adsorption capacities of activated carbon for cleaning air of various pollutants; use soil sorption coefficient for agricultural applications; solve problems for fluid flow of gases and liquids using viscosity data; use thermal conductivity data for heat transfer applications; use lower and upper explosion limits in air, flock point and autoignition temperature for safety in designs and operations; use threshold limit value (ACGIH), permissible exposure limit (OSHA) and recommended exposure limit (NIOSH) to design facilities while safeguarding health; use thermal expansion coefficient data to design relief systems; and find thousands of other time-saving uses.
