The Dictionary of Inorganic Compounds presents fundamental information on more than 42,000 of the most important and useful inorganic compounds-each screened for inclusion according to rigorous criteria. With its combination of numerical, textual, and bibliographic data, you typically can find all the information you need in this one publication. Organized according to empirical name and indexed by name, structural type, and CAS Registry number, each entry includes:
Compound name, synonyms and physical description
CAS Registry number
Formula and formula weight
Structural type with a diagram or description
Source or synthesis
Stability, solubility, melting and boiling points, sublimations conditions, and vapor pressure
Supplements to the main work-available separately-provide information on newer compounds and revised data on compounds already listed. Indexes in the second and subsequent supplements are cumulative, providing quick access to entries in all the supplements from a single index.
"This dictionary is a superb work of scholarship, handsomely produced, which all serious chemical libraries will require: inorganic chemists will soon be wondering how they ever managed without it."
(Chemistry & Industry)
"An invaluable reference for all scientists...a clear and systematic series brilliantly conceived and expertly produced...undoubtedly of considerable importance to anyone interested in inorganic chemistry."
(Inorganica Chimica Acta)
