Synopses & Reviews
The Handbook of Chemistry and Physics has always provided a thorough range of critically evaluated data in a convenient, one-volume format. Over the last ten years, revisions to the book have supported the advances in semiconductors and high-temperature superconductors; addressed environmental concerns by providing data on pollutants, contaminants, global warming, and ground water contamination; and amended pertinent data to stay current with IUPAC standards. In the last several years, the handbook has added, revised, or updated 95% of its information.
This latest edition of the world's most popular scientific reference features tables and reference sections on everything from aqueous solubility of organic compounds to flash point data of common substances. With the latest facts and figures, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics also contains all the most frequently used data in science, including the periodic table of the elements, basic constants and units, and geophysical data.
