This book brings together for the first time the key facts about the chemical elements that make up the world around us. These data are often needed but difficult to track down. Now they have been brought together in a systematic and easy-to-use format, arranged alphabetically, element by element. All the numerical data are given in SI units, together with a simple key chapter explaining them and how to convert to other units. Under each element, information is provided on such topics as chemical properties, thermodynamics, x-ray coefficients, reduction potentials, ionization energies, biological activities, and atomic spectra. Thirty-two tables of properties of elements, arranged in order of element and in order of ranking, conclude the book.

John Emsley, Science Writer in Residence Department of Chemistry, Imperial College, London.Review:
"Emsley's excellent compendium has two densely packed pages of information about each of the chemical elements, including physical, chemical, and biological data. This third edition . . . includes new information on such matters as health hazards, mineral sources, electron binding energies, and elements discovered since the second edition. There are brief chapters on the history of the periodic table, and the discovery and the abundance of the elements. Brief index. Strongly recommended as a valuable resource for undergraduate and graduate students and faculty."--Choice
