Synopses & Reviews
Fully revised for this third edition, with 1,000 new entries, The Dictionary of Chemistry covers all the commonly encountered terms in chemistry, including physical chemistry and biochemistry. The dictionary includes clear and concise coverage of laboratory techniques, chemical engineering, and environmental matters, new entries on buckminsterfullerene, fullerite, quasicrystal, oscillating reaction, and one-pot synthesis, and a full alphabetical table of elements and their properties. Authoritative and up to date, this is the perfect reference book for students of chemistry and general readers interested in the chemical nature of our physical surroundings.
"An old favorite. It should be in every classroom and library....The reader is drawn inevitably from one entry to the next merely to satisfy curiosity."--School Science Review
