Riassunto: Translated and revised from the original German edition of 1993, this reference for chemists, chemical engineers, and students contains some 12,000 entries and 1,600 figures, formulas, and tables. Arranged alphabetically, the work contains an immense amount of material on all fields of chemistry, in
From Booklist: This is more of an encyclopedic dictionary, with many entries having only a one-sentence definition. There is no index. Instead, a see reference is made for a term covered in a longer article. For example, under shoe polish is the reference "see Leather care products." This method works quite well, providing an easy way to locate discussions. The text of each longer entry is well written and understandable to the educated layperson. This book is smaller than the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Chemistry, a true encyclopedia with few dictionary entries. The number of terms covered in the Concise Encyclopedia, however, is just as extensive, with shorter discussions of each. The Concise Encyclopedia is well illustrated, with many line drawings, tables, and charts.
A couple of minor points indicate de Gruyter's publishing standards may have been relaxed. The Concise Encyclopedia Chemistry is referred to in the preface as the Concise Encyclopedia of Chemistry. It is described as a translation of ABC Chemie, with no publication date. OCLC reveals that the real title is Brockhaus ABC Chemie; according to the publisher it was last published in 1987. These discrepancies do not, however, take away from the usefulness of the encyclopedia; they are only irritating for catalogers. This is a good, reasonably priced chemistry dictionary and is recommended for academic and public libraries.
