Overview

The third edition of this widely acclaimed reference book collects together the most important facts about all the chemical elements in a single volume. While retaining the same easy-to-use alphabetical format, the existing sections on the various properties of the elements have been updated, and new sections on biological, crystal, and geological data have been added. Other additions include foreign names of the elements, pronunciation guides, CAS numbers, a table of minerals, four new elements, and a new chapter on the discovery of development of the periodic table. It is a handy guide for chemists, physicists, geologists, life scientists, and environmentalists.
