Choice Review

The publisher's claim of 60 percent new and updated material appears true. Revised every 6 years, this classic reference for chemists now includes SI units, updated IUPAC nomenclature, significant new information on laboratory methods, updated tabulations with the latest standard reference data, and expanded information in many areas: ultraviolet-visible, infrared, and Raman spectroscopy as well as mass spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance; bond lengths and strengths; the potentials of organic and inorganic compounds, and more. The organization of subject matter is also significantly changed in this edition. For example, the former analytical chemistry section is now categorized in 3 sections: spectroscopy; electrolytes, electromotive force, and chemical equilibrium; and practical laboratory information. A new section houses polymers, rubbers, fats, oils, and waxes. The following sections round out this excellent reference: organic chemistry; general information, conversion tables, and mathematics; inorganic chemistry; properties of atoms, radicals, and bonds; physical properties; thermodynamic properties; physicochemical relationships; and an alphabetical index. Professional chemists, students of chemistry, and others interested in the sciences will find easy access to chemistry and physics data in this one-volume compilation. Libraries owning the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (71st ed., CH, Sep'91) will also want Lange's Handbook of Chemistry since each work contains unique information. N. C.
