Continuing to offer the most authoritative, up-to-date data to scientists around the world, this reference is now updated to contain new tables on properties of ionic liquids, solubilities of hydrocarbons in sea water, solubility of organic compounds in superheated water, and nutritive value of foods. It also updates many tables including critical constants, heats of vaporization, aqueous solubility of organic compounds, and more.
Book News Annotation:
A previous edition is endorsed by inclusion in Resources for College Libraries. The newest edition contains five new tables, on ionic liquids, solubility of organic compounds in pressurized hot water, solubility of hydrocarbons in seawater, nutrient values of foods, and properties of organic semiconductors. Seven tables have been expanded and updated, including those on critical temperature and pressure of fluids, enthalpy of vaporization of inorganic and organic compounds, thermodynamic properties of air, bond dissociation energies, and the properties of fundamental particles. The appendix of math tables and list of internet resources have also been updated. With its impressive collection of tables, this is an invaluable reference for anyone in the field, whether student or professional. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
