"A FORMIDABLE SUPERLATIVE GEM" according to reviewer. Very useful and very relevant, nearly all the chapters of this edition of "CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics" have been revised. The book is up-to-date, and provides extensive coverage on all the significant physico-chemical phenomena. Chemists, physicists, biochemists, engineers, pharmacists, and other scientists and professionals would value this textbook. Its CD-ROM version would be of great benefit to mobile users.I was impressed by the way it analyzed molecular interactions in each of the three states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. Electron transfer, and transf. An incredible resource wiredweird If I were allowed only two reference books, they would be the OED and this.This book doesn't have everything, it just seems that way. Listing the content would take pages, and much of it is chemical or physical arcana - if you need the data, you already know what to look for. At a more accessible level, it lists the frequencies of notes in several musical scales, information about common wire sizes, astronomical information, the chemical makeup of the human body, and ways to create carefully controlled humidity. That last one can be helpful to woodworkers; this book really . A Timeless Classic Reference whether in Academia, R&D, A Timeless Classic Reference whether in Academia, R&D, Manufacturing, Hobbyist or Tinkerer. Physical Constants don't change.A real bargain for the serious Scientist.
And for nearly 90 years, they have relied on the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics for that data.This year is no exception. New tables, extensive updates, and added sections mean the Handbook has once again set a new standard for reliability, utility, and thoroughness.Outstanding features of the 83rd edition:Standard Thermodynamic Properties of Chemical Substances-Thoroughly revised with new substances and updated valuesIonization constants for buffers used in biological research-Definitive data that allow the correct interpretation of experimentsDirectory of Physical and Chemical Data Sources-A selective listing of
