The latest edition of the world's most popular scientific reference features tables and reference sections on everything from the Periodic Table to the bond lengths in organometallic compounds. Featuring the latest facts and figures, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics contains all the most frequently used data in science.

Topics new in the 82nd edition:
Redox data on biochemical compounds Surface tension of common compounds with water as a function of concentration Viscosity of carbon dioxide Optical properties of materials such as binary semiconductors Interstellar molecules Radio frequency allocations

Tables updated in the 82nd edition:
Physical Constants of Inorganic Compounds-expanded by 15%
Critical temperatures and pressures of fluids Solubility of organic compounds in water Atomic weights and natural abundances of isotopes-latest official recommendation from IUPAC Polymer nomenclature Threshold limits for airborne pollutants Chemical carcinogens

From science fair entrants to Nobel laureates, researchers around the world depend upon having access to authoritative, up-to-date data. 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 values·Ionization constants for buffers used in biological research-Definitive data that allow the correct interpretation of experiments·Directory of Physical and Chemical Data Sources-A selective listing of the most reliable sources of physical and chemical properties data, including data journals, data centers, major handbooks, and Internet sites ·Atomic weights-Updated with the latest changes adopted by IUPAC in 2001Other refinements and new topics include:·Atomic and Molecular Polarizabilities Updated·Characteristic Bond Lengths in Free Molecules New!·Correction of Barometer Readings to 0°C Temperature New!·Electron AffinitiesUpdated·Eutectic Temperatures of Low-Melting Alloys New!·Nuclear Spins and Moments for NMR Spectroscopy Updated·Permittivity of Water as a Function of Temperature and Pressure New!·Sensitivity of the Human Eye to Light of Different Wavelengths New!·Thermodynamic Functions and RelationsNew!·Vapor Pressure of Mercury New!·Viscosity and Density of Concentrated Hydroxide Solutions New!·Viscosity of Liquid Metals New!

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Previous editions of this venerable reference are cited in and . The information contained here is for a range of readers, from science fair entrants to researchers. New features include expanded and updated tables on standard thermodynamic properties of chemical substances; nuclear spins, moments, and other data related to NMR spectroscopy; strengths of chemical bonds; electron affinities; atomic and molecular polarizabilities; dielectric constant of water and steam; vapor pressure of mercury; standard atomic weights, reflecting the IUPAC 2001 changes; properties of seawater; and global and atmospheric carbon dioxide trends. Also included is an added appendix listing other reliable sources of physical and chemical data. Edited by Lide (former director, standard reference data, National Institute of Standards and Technology). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
<:st> Cited in "BCL3" and "Guide to Reference Books". The 78th edition of this classic annual features definitions of scientific terms; a revised table of vapor pressures, covering about 1,800 organic and inorganic substances; a table of quantitative data on the solubility of organic compounds in water at specified temperatures; selected values of octanol-water partition coefficients; a comprehensive table of flash points; several new tables dealing with properties of solid materials; and updated table of ionization energies of gas-phase molecules; and new or revised tables on index of refraction, dielectric constant, speed of sound in various media, and chemical nomenclature rules. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
<:st> Cited in and . This 80th edition of a classic reference features definitions of scientific terms as well as new coverage of topics including chemical kinetic data on reactions in the stratosphere, standard solutions for calibrating conductivity cells, properties of water and steam at high temperatures and pressures, density and other properties of ice and supercooled water, diffusion of gases in water, and solubility of common salts in water at ambient temperatures. Also covers updates and expansions in areas such as heats of fusion, strengths of chemical bonds, sublimation pressure of solids, lattice energy of crystals, diffusion in semiconductors, and properties of fundamental particles. Contains the most recent Government list of chemical carcinogens. Edited by Lide (former director of standard reference data, National Institute of Standards and Technology). Annotation c.
