    Review:

    Excerpts from review by K. L. Carriveau Jr., Baylor University
    Entries in this work were extracted and condensed from McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology (9th ed., 20v., CH, Sep'02)... Although this version seems to meet its goal ("providing the reader with essential knowledge in chemistry without extensive detail")...the biographical section included as an appendix is useful and addresses a common need of students from high school through lower undergraduate levels...Although many of the 700 entries are dated, they are still valid and the concise edition will be valuable to special collections looking for a low-cost alternative to the full 20-volume set.... ( Choice 2005-02-01)

    From the Back Cover:

    Serious Chemistry, In a Nutshell

    There is no better or more authoritative vehicle for staying up to speed with today's chemistry than the McGraw-Hill Concise Encyclopedia of Chemistry. Derived from the world-renowned McGraw-Hill Concise Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, Fourth Edition, this vital reference provides brief yet substantive articles from scientists and engineers at the forefront of their fields, including several Nobel Prize winners, summarizing the state of the art in chemistry today.

    Learned enough for professional users, yet written in clear, simple language that will appeal to students and general readers wanting to explore the exciting developments in contemporary chemistry, the McGraw-Hill Concise Encyclopedia of Chemistry:

    * Features over 700 articles encompassing the scope of chemistry today
    * Puts the world of chemistry at your fingertips, in a conveniently pocket-sized, alphabetically organized volume
    * Includes clear, concise, expert-authored coverage of topics such as polymers, biochemistry, metal extraction, radioactivity, organic compounds, reaction rates, electrochemistry, pharmaceuticals, and surface science
    * Provides illustrations, a bibliography, an appendix, and other valuable supplements to the articles

    Carefully reviewed for accuracy, clarity, and completeness, the McGraw-Hill Concise Encyclopedia of Chemistry offers an unparalleled standard of excellence.
