The Handbook compiles a massive amount of well-organized and easily accessible data in a single volume. After decades of providing scientific facts and figures, the Handbook continues to be the standard reference in the field.
Provides chemical and physical data.
The handbook of chemistry and physics has always provided a broad range of critically evaluated data in a convenient, one-volume format, and has never lost touch with the need to stay current. Over the last 10 years, revisions to the Handbook have kept up with advances in semiconductors and high-temperature superconductors; addressed environmental concerns by providing data on pollutants, contaminants, global warming, and ground water contamination; and revised pertinent data to stay up-to-date with Iupac standards. In the last several years, 95% of the information in the Handbook has been revised, updated, or added to.
