Overview

Bretherick's Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards by Peter Urben

Bretherick’s Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards is widely regarded as the reference work in this field — an assembly of all reported risks such as explosion, fire, toxic or high-energy events that result from chemical reactions gone astray, with extensive referencing to the primary literature.

It is designed to improve safety in laboratories that perform chemical synthesis and general research, as well as chemical manufacturing plants. Entries are ordered by empirical formula and indexed under both name(s) and Chemical Abstracts Registry Numbers.

This two-volume compendium focuses on reactivity risks of chemicals, alone and in combination; toxicity hazards are only included for unexpected reactions giving volatile poisons.

The 2-volume set is available on an introductory price of $320/€270/£185 until Jan 2007. Will then revert to the list price of $395/€330/£230.
