Mirroring the growth and direction of science for a century, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, now in its 91st edition, continues to be the most accessed and respected scientific reference in the world, used by students and Nobel Laureates. Available in its traditional print format, the Handbook is also available as an innovative interactive product on CD-ROM and online. This yeara (TM)s edition adds many new tables and major revisions ...

The benchmark of scientific reference since the days of Einstein, Eddington, and Planck, no book is held to a higher standard than the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. Perpetually vetted for misspellings, miscalculations, misperceptions, and misnomers, it is republished every year, so no mistake needs to be long abided, no enhancement long awaited.

The job of editing the Handbook requires not only one who is relentless, driven to perpetually push the level of accuracy one more decimal point, but also one who is humble enough and smart enough to understand that the Handbook, like science itself, is a living, changing thing, and that it is both a record of achievement and a foundation for further improvement of that record. Until this year, the Handbook has been guided through 90 editions by just four editors. The last, David Lide, guided the book through 20 editions. Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Lide guided the Handbook into the electronic age, overseeing the creation and the continual improvement of interactive web and CD versions that have now become staples in every research library of note.

It takes a scientist to edit the only scientific handbook that can be rightfully called The Handbook

Introducing Mickey Haynes

For 20 years, we have seen the name of Dr. Lide embossed on the cover of the Handbook as editor-in-chief. Now a new name is embossed in silver: William M. Haynes. Dr. Mickey Haynes brings with him the most absolute qualification: a career devoted to finding and capturing the best data. Most notably, Dr. Haynes worked more than three decades for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). His last three years at NIST were as Chief of the Physical and Chemical Properties Division and currently he is a scientist emeritus with NIST. During his tenure, he was involved in major projects on the properties of natural gas, cryogenic fluids, air, alternative refrigerants, and ammonia/water systems. He was responsible for the development of apparatus for measurements of both transport and thermodynamic properties of fluids and models to represent the data.

Dr. Haynes is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Thermophysics and a Fellow of the American Physical Society. With his background, Dr. Haynesa (TM) influence will be especially significant in the fluids property data, which he has already expanded for the 91st edition. But it hardly stops there, for like Dr. Lide and the editors before him, Dr. Haynes is already proving himself relentless with his efforts to make all the data more reliable and more stable.

This June, we unveil the 91st edition of the Handbook. And with this landmark edition, we celebrate the changing of the guard, an historic past, and a future yet to be written.

Profile of Dr. Haynes

Mickey Haynes joined the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 1970 as a National Research Council Postdoctoral Research Associate after completing his Ph.D. in physics at the University of Virginia. During this associateship, he carried out an experimental program on the viscosity of cryogenic fluids. In 1972 he became a permanent staff member and was involved in research on measurements and correlations of the thermophysical properties of fluids and fluid mixtures of scientific and industrial interest. He was involved in major projects on the properties of natural gas, cryogenic fluids, air, alternative refrigerants, and ammonia/water systems. Mickey was responsible for the development of state-of-the-art apparatus for measurements of both transport and thermodynamic properties of fluids (e.g., magnetic suspension densimeters and torsional crystal viscometers). The apparatus were used for fluid thermophysical property measurements at low and high temperatures and at extreme pressures; and for the development of empirical and theoretical models for the prediction of fluid properties.

In 1985, Mickey became Group Leader of the Properties of Fluids Group in the Thermophysics Division and served in that capacity for ten years. In 1989 he assumed the position of Deputy Chief of the Thermophysics Division, which was reorganized and became the Physical and Chemical Properties Division in 1996. While remaining in t

Book News Annotation:

The foreword to the 92nd edition of this long-enduring classic is by a scientist (affiliated with Imperial College London) who remembers his first engagement with the reference as a physics student in 1964 (47th edition), and he emphasizes its "immense global service" in collating a body of agreed-upon data. He also asserts the value of an ink & paper reference, explaining that plenty of access via indexing makes up for lack of a "search engine," and readers can enjoy some of the random encounters that page-turning affords. The current editor in chief is W.M. Haynes (emeritus, National Institute of Standards and Technology); he had the assistance of associate editor David R. Lide (also affiliated there) to make changes and updates in the latest edition. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
