This title includes through coverage of more than 2000 inorganic chemical compounds...all in one handy, well-organized reference. Here is an invaluable resource for chemists, chemical engineers, laboratory technicians, and environmental engineers. Covering over 2000 of the most popular industrial chemicals, "Handbook of Inorganic Chemical Compounds" details the chemical reactions the subject chemicals undergo either in preparation or naturally - all presented in a dynamic, easy-to-understand style. Selection of compounds in the Handbook was based on their industrial usage and application, as well as certain properties such as structural features, toxicity, or being reaction intermediates.Conveniently arranged in alphabetical order, each entry includes the following essential information such as: synonyms, molecular weight, formula/structure and the type of compound based on functional group, CAS registry number, occurrence, uses and applications, physical properties, methods of preparation with chemical equations, chemical reactions, and, health chemical analysis. The massive amount of information contained in "Handbook of Inorganic Chemical Compounds" will save you literally hundreds of hours of searching through numerous books, journals, and references. If you're looking for an authoritative, concise, one-stop guide to inorganic chemicals - your search ends here. This is a resource that truly belongs on the bookshelf of everyone in the chemical community.

Excerpts of article by J. A. Bartz, Kalamazoo College
The Handbook is an encyclopedia with Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Numbers (CASRN), formulas, synonyms, origins, uses, physical and thermochemical properties, preparation, uses, and reactions, analysis, and toxicity or hazards of some 2,000 industrially important inorganic chemicals, including elements and compounds.
Entries vary in length, depending on what is known about different compounds and probably indicating the relative industrial importance. Some entries include the history of the particular element or compound. The value of this work is in how it gathers information from a variety of sources and puts it in one volume...if readers need a quick reference book about the nature of the specific elements and inorganic compounds discussed in this book, this handbook will work well...Summing Up: Recommended.
