Known for over half a century simply as "Lange's Handbook", this classic reference covers the entire field of chemistry, with state-of-the-art facts, figures, values, tables and formulae. It is designed as a useful source of information for all chemistry professionals, engineers, and technicians. It features concise descriptions and cross-indexed subject listings. This 14th edition contains over 60 percent new or revised material, including conversion to the SI system. It covers: organic chemistry, including the physical properties of 4000 frequently-used organic compounds; inorganic chemistry, with nomenclature based on 1990 IUPAC recommendations and descriptions of over 2500 inorganic compounds; extensive thermodynamic data, with several new tables; spectroscopy, with new material on ultraviolet-visible, infrared, Raman, nuclear magnetic resonance, and mass spectrometry; a competely updated section on polymers, rubbers, fats, oils, and waxes; plus detailed sections on atomic and molecular structure, analytical chemistry, electrochemistry, physical properties, practical laboratory information, and mathematics for chemists.

``Bargains are rare in the publication arena but this book represents one. It is an old reliable in fancy new garb with an editor who assumed the task in 1968. ...Even a cursory sampling reveals that this chemistry handbook can stand comparison with the best in the field. ...As a clinical chemist, I can attest to having found previous editions very useful and, of course, this one should be even more useful...it is just overflowing with useful information that is available at your beck and call.''
