Summary

Summary

The third edition of this widely acclaimed reference book collects together the most important facts about all the chemical elements in a single easy-to-use guidebook. Not only in this edition has the author completely revised and updated his text, but he has also responded to reader demand for additional material. A major new chapter on the discovery and development of the periodic table has been added. The existing sections on the chemical, physical, nuclear, electron-shell, and environmental properties of elements have been updated and new sections on biological, crystal, and geological data have been added. There is also more information on the discovery, etymology, pronunciation and foreign names of the elements.

Choice Review

Emsley's excellent compendium has two densely packed pages of information about each of the chemical elements, including physical, chemical, and biological data. This third edition (1st ed., 1988; 2nd ed., CH, May'92) includes new information on such matters as health hazards, mineral sources, electron binding energies, and elements discovered since the second edition. There are brief chapters on the history of the periodic table, and the discovery and the abundance of the elements. Brief index. Strongly recommended as a valuable resource for undergraduate and graduate students and faculty. H. Goldwhite California State University, Los Angeles
