Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 15th Edition is a compilation of technical data and descriptive information covering thousands of chemicals and chemical phenomena, trade name products, processes, reactions, products, and related terminology. Organized to meet the needs of those who have only minutes to devote to any given substance or topic, the 15th Edition updates and expands the coverage from the previous edition.

Since the publication of the first edition in 1919, this condensed chemical dictionary has provided readers with unparalleled access to technical data and descriptive information covering thousands of chemicals and chemical phenomena, making it an invaluable resource. This new edition continues this tradition. The more than 20,000 entries have been carefully scrutinized and updated to reflect the latest information and obsolete entries have been deleted. In addition, the addresses of chemical manufacturers have been revised, updated, and reordered to eliminate duplication.

Editorial Reviews

Having become a classic reference since its original publication in 1919, continues to provide a wide range of students and professionals with quick access to technical data and descriptive information for common chemical substances and phenomena. Identifies thousands of chemical substances by name, physical properties, source of occurrence, shipping regulations, Chemical Abstracts Registry (CAS) number, chemical formula, potential hazards, derivatives, synonyms, and applications. Also includes biographical sketches of Nobel laureates, contact information for professional associations and societies within the chemical industry, and an appendix on the origin of some chemical terms. Not indexed, but very thoroughly cross-referenced. As printed, the CiP data still shows the Van Nostrand Reinhold ISBN (0-442- 02324-3) rather than the ISBN assigned by Wiley, which recently bought VNR. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
